White House Briefings for Children: Jen Psaki Circles Back

Binoy Kampmark

The Biden administration’s first White House press secretary is keen that things will be done differently under her guidance. The jaw dropping, sniping sessions between the press and government that were characteristic of the Trump administration were going to cease.

“When the President asked me to serve in this role,” Jen Psaki outlined in her first press briefing on January 20, 2021, “we talked about the importance of bringing truth and transparency back to the briefing room, and he asked me to ensure we are communicating about policies across the Biden-Harris administration and the work his team is doing every single day on behalf of all the American people.”

The press secretary’s job, in any traditional sense, is to dissemble, defend and justify the ill-thought out or executed policies of the commander-in-chief. The briefing room is a place to stifle and shape rather than enlighten or inform. The new press secretary seems to think differently, she who is clear about:

a common goal, which is sharing accurate information with the American people.”

Her January 20 briefing was tarted up by a deal of dangerous sincerity that marks the well-meaning ideologue. She reminded the press of having:

travelled the world on trips to promote democracy, where I saw the power of the United States and, of course, the power of this podium, and the power of truth, and of the importance of setting an example of engagement and transparency.”

Drawing a line under the previous administration, she expressed cosy feelings about the fourth estate, having a:

deep respect for the role of a free and independent press in our democracy and for the role all of you play.”

With the cringe-worthy ingratiation out of the way, Psaki deployed a method that risks being an irritating hallmark of her tenure. Would the Biden administration, for instance, implement a death penalty moratorium?

The answer: start with a general view of the President’s opposition to the death penalty but avoid details.

I don’t have anything more for you in terms of future actions or mechanisms, though. I can – I’ll circle back if there’s more I can share with you.”

On January 21, Psaki stroked away various questions with ever greater, circling vigour. To a question on whether the Defense Production Act had been invoked by the Biden administration she began with an expansive answer without actually answering the question, only to kill it off with a promise for future attention.

I’ll have to just circle back with you on what it – if it’s officially invoked in this moment, or if it takes some time. And we can circle back with you after the briefing.”

A question on whether President Biden would try to rein in religious conscious exemptions for such organisations as the Little Sisters of the Poor, a metaphorically airborne Psaki induced more giddiness.

I haven’t discussed that particular issue with him. I’m happy to circle back with you, but I don’t – there’s not a change in his position from what he said earlier this summer.”

Ditto her reply to a question on whether the DC Statehood measure would find its way to the president’s desk within the first 100 days of the administration.

Psaki’s ascent is part of a waffling campaign beeping with promises of integrity, candour and commitment to accuracy. CNN’s Brian Stelter did not even bother concealing his political colours in praising the appointment.

Biden’s first day, and Psaki’s first day, sent a message that functional government is back.”

Van Jones, also of the same news network, seemed overwhelmed by it all.

It’s just mesmerizing to watch a functional government doing functional government-type things.”

He was astonished that there was a press conference to begin with, steered by a human, “and that person said words, and the words made sense, and somebody asked a question, and that person answered.” Presidential historian Michael Beschloss was grateful for the return of “civility and respect. What was old is new again.” He even gushed that it was:

once again safe to let our children watch a White House briefing.”

Such banal commentary has served to avoid critiquing Psaki’s own shoddy performance, which has sought to single out the Trump administration for, to take one example, having no vaccine plan to speak of.

When Trump critic and long-standing director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, was asked if this was the case, he had to deny it. “We are certainly not starting from scratch because there is activity going on in the distribution.” The difference, rather, was in Biden “amplifying” pre-existing approaches.

To such questions as to why President Biden and his family were not masked at the Lincoln Memorial after he signed an executive order mandating the use of masks on federal property at all times, Psaki was ready with the spin.

I think, Steve, he was celebrating an evening of a historic day in our country. And certainly he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of wearing masks, how it can save tens of thousands of lives.”

As to whether Biden’s conduct had been glaringly at odds with the executive order, Psaki suggested that,

we have big – bigger issues to worry about in time.”

Transparency and accurate information evidently not being among them.

A return to normal is the dream most people are sold about America but never actually get their hands on. Its the Hollywood stage where the loving peaceful and empathic global superpower talks garbage for a while while pretending to engage the press, most who are shills and on the pay roll in some form or another and all while being extremely polite and superficial so not to break character

That’s what people mean by a return to normal “functioning” government. They are done with their government being exposed as the joke that it is while Trump was in power. They prefer that joke to be more easily digested by the way of all the bullshit being hidden behind the curtains while dolled up plastic people completely out of touch with reality for the average person pretends like they are here for “the people” while rushing off to promote further agendas that ensure a future of COVID, domestic terrorism and blowing the shit out of some foreign country continues.

Hey kids, you can watch these war wondering freedom snatching criminals now. Why is that daddy? Because now they are nice people and they really mean the best and government in the US has changed forever and now everybody wants peace, happiness and shared wealth and prosperity for all.

It’s not like politics is still the same as it was before Trump left. Oh wait, it’s exactly the same. Only the Disneyland glitter of the US political stage is now back in full force dumbing the people down and distracting them from the hum-drum smokescreen that always is, and always will be, the front for American politics. The glitz and the glamour. The sterile environments. The show of wealth and power and the classic stars and stripes treatment.

AKA the mafia back in full force, only now they go underground once again and simply let the front of house they have established over generations distract the common folk from looking on at the real crimes and realities that await behind the curtains.

Business as usual. The American propaganda machine and its faithful CNN televised White House broadcasts we’ve all seen on the movies are back. The world is safe again. The criminals are behind bars *cough* behind the walls of the white house (once again), Trump has been felled and we can all sleep well.

Ha! You wonder why the US tore itself apart leading up to the Biden administration coming into power. You wonder why furthermore all around the world government is essentially the jailor of the average person and why they don’t even have to try and defend themselves against challenge from the people. They all think the ceremony filmed on camera and on location at these movie sets are actually what politics are all about. They want to see their rulers at the plinth singing sweet lullabies into their ears because they can’t handle the fact their entire world is a fiction deliberately created and maintained to ensure a childlike naivety and immaturity around things like politics.

NEWSFLASH

The USA is still the same. The same crooks are in power. The only difference is, the crooks now dress up like Ronald Mcdonald like they used to do to entertain the kids AKA everybody including fully grown adults, while they exploit their own people, lie to them, steal from them and continue to destroy the fabric of the society that the USA was founded upon.

NEWSFLASH

The USA is still under seige. The perps can still be found behind the guarded gates of Washington they erected to keep the poor peasant man and woman away AKA the general population. The same crooks who have furnished the halls of government are still crooks and they still furnish the halls of government. Trump is gone but the establishment still exists and its still marching forward.

This is CNN signing off.

A regime based on fraud, cynicism, and propaganda manipulation is bound to present itself in a similar fashion. Central to the fraud and propaganda was an organised press acting in concert as propaganda central. Exhibit A was their refusal to cover the corruption allegations centring on Biden, his son, and his brothers.

I couldn’t agree more.

I knew that if the Resistance successfully deposed the recreant knave and usurper Trump (as they see it), all of the eternally-pending investigations in progress into Biden/Democratic Party/”Resistance” skulduggery and chicanery would evaporate.

I started to put “in progress” in ironic/scare quotes above, but in our surrealistic dystopia there’s so much call for them that I’m trying to pace myself. 

Anyway, I confess to briefly entertaining the foolish hope that AG Barr might actually assist Trump and let loose the judicial hounds. Not for long; it soon became clear that he hewed to his customary role as Establishment fixer– his “nothing to see here, move along” response to the Epstein affair confirmed that he’s not the guy to pursue justice without fear or favor “though the heavens fall”.

Just as you say, the complicit mass-media has done its best to disappear the Biden’s international grifting schemes and scandals, just as it relentlessly flogs the Big Lie that the election was reasonably honest and valid.

The “circle back” tic may be idiosyncratic– something Psaki picked up somewhere and found appealing. In my experience, people will adopt idiomatic usages that, rightly or wrongly, they think sound generally kind of cool and somehow authoritative.

So they season their speech with such pet phrases. It backfires when: 1) the idiom isn’t as apt, satisfying, and wonderful as the infatuated adopter thinks in the first place, and/or 2) the user grabs some mediocre turn of phrase and slides down the slippery slope into unconscious overuse.

Or it might be a buzzword Psaki picked up from some venue in which bureaucratic and corporate buzzspeak originate. She may be introducing an in-group term to the masses.

During my career as a state worker, I would hear the latest buzzwords trickle down from various “in-groups” and “in-managers” in the hierarchy, and be eagerly echoed by lower-echelon toadies and suck-ups.

In staff meetings, stuporvisors (not misspelled) would find reasons to repeatedly use the approved buzz-terms du jour— trainers, too. It spreads like a– well, to avoid the controversial “virus” for a change, let’s say a rash. 

If I never hear the word “metrics” again in my life it will be too soon.

Excellent understanding of the system.

OK, Ort, if I’m bleary eyed today it is because as I was about to turn in for the night I noticed your reply email on my phone. (had shut off computer)

At the risk of tonyopmoc ostrasization I have to respond thus:

Although I know and love most of Donovan’s songs, I had never heard “Happiness Is”. Until Oct 2019. I was driving from NYC to Boston having just visited a family member. Listening to a folk radio station. This wonderful song started playing. Although it sounded like Donovan I wasn’t sure until DJ confirmed. I can see where I was on 95 listening to that song – that’s how much of an impression it made. When I got home I found it on the internet and played it for hours. I was just thinking last week that I hadn’t played it for awhile and must do so again. Love it.

As for Circle Game, I had not heard that. Again, I am only familiar with the popular radio hits of Joni Mitchell. Have only come to really appreciate her talent over the past few years.

I searched the song last night (after listening to Happiness Is a few times) and gave it a listen. Just beautiful. I read comments as I listened. Apparently Joni wrote it for Stephen Stills.

The comments to the song were quite moving. One recent comment was from a girl who would have attended her last year at camp last summer. A very special year for the kids who had gone there. She said that the tradition at the end of the summer for this group of kids was to sit around a circle and play this song. She was sorry she would not see these kids again (because of course camp was cov-cancelled) and she wished them well.

Thank you for two examples of why I’m glad I grew up in the ’60’s.

I wanted to give you about 10 upvotes for the “circles of your mind gag” (one of my favourite songs BTW), but I couldn’t.

However, I’ll use your mention of Joni Mitchell as lame excuse to publish here my latest opus:

“They paved Paradise,
and put up a Nightingale

It was never used,
it was just another Johnson FAIL

Don’t it always seem to go
That you just don’t know what you got till it’s gone

They paved paradise 
and put up a Nightingale

They took common cold,
And labelled it Covid nineteen…

And they charged 80 bucks 
for a fake test to prove you were clean

Don’t it always seem to go
That you just don’t know what you got till it’s gone

They took common cold, 
And labelled it Covid nineteen…

Late Last night 
I heard the front door click

And a big fat copper 
tried to stick me with a big fat…needle

Don’t it always seem to go
That you just don’t know what you got till it’s gone

They took common flu, 
And labelled it Covid nineteen…”

With apologies to Joni Mitchell.

Even in my early teens I refused to use popular idioms, and refused to attempt to wear fashionable clothes. I had quickly realised that the more you try to keep up with any fashionable trends, the more futile it becomes and especially when you are young you are subject to ridicule for being out of fashion, whether it be language or apparel.
Anyway, every generation or two, I’m a fashion leader, at least for a while!

And reportedly, softball questions are to be submitted in advance, in writing, to the press secretary, presumably to be reviewed by the Committee of Truth. Undoubtedly, this report will be fact checked and proven to be false, or rather partly false. Or not proven to be not false, the new standard for investigation.

On Tuesday White House Spokesperson Jen Psaki mocked the idea of a space force during her daily press briefing. . . . On Tuesday night she issued a lackluster apology. . . . And on Wednesday she said the Space Force has the full support of the Biden Administration.

I remember watching an Obama press briefing once. If any of the press had asked him what his favorite color was, that would have been the toughest question he got. And like Sir Galahad in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, he probably would have answered it wrong.
Even if you hate Trump, if you have any intellectual honesty you would have to admit that he was bombarded with “have you stopped beating your wife” questions in every press conference.
So, it’s back to the “old normal” with Biden and Psaki. If a reporter asks what his favorite color is, though, she will probably have to “circle back”

And we’ll doubtless be regaled with a supercharged surge of the usual mass-media Megadeath Virus of Doom morality tales, e.g. super-sensational stories of wicked or foolish fans recklessly holding and attending Superbowl Superspreader events instead of Following the Super-Science.

This manufactured horror, dismay, and blame will have the usual super ripple effect: weeks later, infoganda venues like the aptly-named Yahoo site will feature headlines and blurbs about the above-cited Superspreader hosts and attendees dropping like flies, along the lines of “Super Bowl Party Host Who Defied Family Dies of COVID“. 

Of course, we will also be treated to variations on this theme, e.g. “Super Bowl Superspreader Attendee on Deathbed Warns Against Flouting COVID Rules“.

This ought to take us right to the Superspreader horrors emerging during the 2021 Summer Olympics.

The one thing you can say definitively about press secretaries through the years is that they have fit and reflected not just the tenor of the administration but the zeitgeist of the times as well.

Here and now we have the ascendancy of cutsey-poo. Ms Psaki should wear a Raggedy Ann pinafore and rouge on her cheeks (both sets of cheeks – and, who knows, maybe she does wear rouge down below).

The American public and its “press” (talk about an oxymoron!) have reduced themselves to a “Yabba Dabba Doo” level of idiocy (with the wonderful voice of Alan Reed et al). For which no education is required. Besides which – as I’ve said for a decade – the consumer economy is a dinosaur on life support; so, really, no jobs at all are needed, therefore the Three Rs can be dispensed with almost entirely.

Hello Howard. I agree. I believe “education” began to erode ever since it became mandatory. Education has always been available to those who sought to improve their understanding of a particular subject. Modern education has deteriorated into a slimy business deal…

In more traditional epochs, life skills were acquired through direct mentoring or guilds, thus learning a payable skill was far more efficient. Why would a carpenter or cobbler need a degree in business administration?

The last five generations have gotten nothing but the shaft… Hooray for the post industrial epoch…

Everybody with their head screwed on right must have noticed that in the last decade, perhaps longer, the media have considerably stepped up the intensity of their production of horseshit. They’ve worked hard on delivering an endless line of scoops, manufacturing endless crises, evidently intended to propel the random imbecilic reader into this or that direction and to totally thwart any possibility of consensus in society. There are now an infinite number of divisions among people – even if they can agree on some issues, there is a myriad others which they can, and will, fight about.

Now, it seems, the media have gone full fucking insane monty, publishing patently crazy stuff as the allusion that “Mixing vaccines could enhance immune response“.

The gobbledygook used by politicians and their underlings is now so that it literally means shit. They’re no longer trying to make it seem that they’re saying something.

There was some talk about education yesterday, how fucked up it is. Considering that they’re now keeping kids out of school, essentially destroying whatever education they’d be getting (like learning to count), I wonder if they’ve figured out that George Carlin’s “smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork” no longer applies either. Maybe they’re thinking that robots can do most of the work, and best if people are as stupid as possible, so they’re volunteer for “mixed vaccines” as per the above, speeding up their own demise.

The level of stupidity, fakery, pretense, systemic corruption, and decay that is coming to the surface is out of this world.

“The press secretary’s job, in any traditional sense, is to dissemble, defend and justify the ill-thought out or executed policies of the commander-in-chief”.

It goes a great deal deeper than that. As Douglas Adams shrewdly remarked, “The purpose of the Office of the President is not to wield power but to draw attention away from it”.

So the Press Secretary obfuscates what the President says and does – which is itself nothing more than a distraction from the real seats of power.

Whoever he is — Schaub, Schwalb or plain old Schwab — the origins of the WEF are unmistakable.

As Maneco64 explains, the WEF started out as the European Management Forum (EMF) in 1972. The Chairman of the EMF was a German banker by the name of Dr Hermann J. Abs.

A manager and future chairman of Deutsche Bank, Abs (1901-1994) was the most powerful commercial banker in the Third Reich. He assisted Hitler’s banker, Hjalmar Schacht (1877 – 1970). Abs was a member of the BIS Committee for Foreign Economic Affairs.

“When he was Chairman of the European Management Forum ( the predecessor of the World Economic Forum) he was 70 years old while Dr Schwab was in his early thirties. Is it possible that Dr Abs was an old friend of the Schwab family?”

According to economic journalist Adam LeBor, Abs was “the lynchpin of the continent wide plunder”. He was arrested as a war criminal in January 1946, but British intervention, specifically Charles Guston of the Bank of England, got him off the hook. He went on to be chairman of Deutsche Bank (1957–1967).

The EMF’s other key patron was Altiero Spinelli, a communist* and member of the Commission of the European Communities, which was the forerunner of the European Commission.

*This might resolve the endless debates on Off-G, whether The Great Reset is fascist or communist. It shares elements of both.

Given that the European Union grew out of the plan by German industrialists to survive and thrive after the collapse of the Third Reich, the EC/EU connection is just another pointer to the shared origins of the EU and the WEF.

I stopped reading at this point. The United States promoting democracy! Give me a break. Like waging war on any state that dares to chart an independent course of development. Just consider the three ‘Responsibilities’ that the US elite and its allies have arrogated to themsleves. 1. R2P (Responsibility 2 Protect) which in fact means R2B (Responsibility to Bomb), and R2A (Responsibility to Assassinate) R2S (Responsibility to Sanction) R2T (Resonsibility ” Threaten). And so forth.

The US and its allies – the UK, Israel and Saudi Arabia – are basically a mafia outfit engaging in mass murder. To take one example. Madelaine Albright ex Secretary of State in conversation with her journalist interlocutor summed it up. Q.Was the death of 500,000 Iraqi children through American imposed sanctions ‘ worth it? Answer: ”Yes, it was worth it.” I suppose that the mass murder of children is okay then.

I’d hardly consider it an over statement when you identify Putin and Biden as the scum of humanity, and others, but lets just concentrate on these two. So how would I justify such an assertion?

Consider an individual whose talents are minimal. Their first choice is always to look for a job in government where they can hide amongst the thousands of employees and carry out menial tasks or better still if they have access to money they can head straight to University.

Now while they are there they soon work out that to get ahead they need to be totally subservient to their “bosses”. However as time passes the question why their bosses have positions of apparent power intrigues them.. Bear in mind this could be a Post Office or one of the hundreds of government departments.

They quickly learn that honesty and ethics play no part in the rise to higher positions. Hence they realise that they need to become clandestine in their manners and begin to “place bets” across a whole series of bosses. As each boss falls from being stabbed in the back they convince themselves that any road to power is acceptable.

By chance they meet someone in the CIA or KGB or Legal Practice and immediately recognise that here is real power. He learns deception, suppression of emotion, egocentric behaviour and not only that he learns that lack of accountability for action in these areas is prevalent.

As time goes by he leaves wrecked lives of people behind him and realises in these areas of subterfuge he can quickly gather more power. It becomes an addiction as he moves through various committees in enacting new laws to benefit a few and continually becoming an expert in Machiavellian practices.

His ethics and honesty have been left far behind him and he becomes surrounded by yes-men who tell him how great he is and glorified by a willing media. He has sold his “soul” for power and casts off any guilt for the lives destroyed either in wars or politics.

He is now scum and beyond any possibility of redemption. Yet ….they will die in peace and have great honours thrust upon them!!!

By chance they meet someone in the CIA or KGB or Legal Practice and immediately recognise that here is real power. He learns deception, suppression of emotion, egocentric behaviour and not only that he learns that lack of accountability for action in these areas is prevalent.

As time goes by he leaves wrecked lives of people behind him and realises in these areas of subterfuge he can quickly gather more power. It becomes an addiction as he moves through various committees in enacting new laws to benefit a few and continually becoming an expert in Machiavellian practices.”

…- Your entire life story to date, I presume?…

“His ethics and honesty have been left far behind him and he becomes surrounded by yes-men who tell him how great he is and glorified by a willing media. He has sold his “soul” for power and casts off any guilt for the lives destroyed either in wars or politics.”

…- In your dreams…

“He is now scum and beyond any possibility of redemption. Yet ….they will die in peace and have great honours thrust upon them!!!”

 Gee, only 10 dislikes so far I thought government employees would have hammered my analysis.

As suspected my analysis is close to the bone for all who work for government. I have never worked in government but have had many dealings with the apparatchiks (actually a Russian word which means they are the “water carriers” for bureaucrats.)

They are the people well illustrated in many distopian novels however dystopia is now well and truly alive and well in world governments. The people at the top are fully aware of the malleability of the workers and how easily they can be indoctrinated principally through fear. Fear of losing their jobs, fear of demotion, fear of many things.

Trump ceratinly got it correct by calling it The Swamp as in a swamp SCUM floats to the top.

Anybody with an open mind should not be afraid to dig deeper into the societal structures in place.

I understand that more than 90% of people are subservient and take a view its better to be ignorant than aware.

Over time these people, like millions in the past, drift through life as slaves by choice.

Now dont get me wrong I understand that when their neighbours are taken away in the night its simply because they must have done something wrong. When the knock comes on their door ….?

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as they who are.” Benjamin Franklin

”It’s just mesmerizing to watch a functional government doing functional government-type things.”

What an astonishing vocabulary.

Welcome to the mainstream media, A graveyard for intellectual debate and discussion, and playground for the demented and sycophantic. 

Naturally we all expected Biden’s reign to be, erm..shall we settle for ‘child-friendly’ ? He does have that erm..shall we say ‘affinity ?

So what else excited our already over -excited Van Jones ,who was being all mesmerized by ” government -type things” ( at least try ‘policies’ in future, you complete dullard).

Ah yes, that was it :

”once again safe to let our children watch a White House briefing.”

Isn’t it just, Van. Especially given that the poor little mites have been conditioned to think that they’re all menaces to society if they try to play out and mix with their little friends because they’re encouraging wicked monsters to come and cause misery and pain.

Get them in front of the propaganda box to watch the masked man with darting snake -like little eyes telling them that their tomorrow will be ‘different’. Their ‘normal’ will be a new one. No play, no freedom, no more carefree laughter that defines a happy childhood.

Tell them that their ‘country needs‘ them in this ‘war’. That they are little heroes if they do as their fuhrer tells them. Get them while they’re old enough to understand simple orders, but still young enough to be easily molded in to the shape of tomorrow’s state slaves.

Listen, mums and dads , to the wisdom of the sagacious Van Jones hinting that it’s safe to pin your children in front of the TV to watch their new masked hero, The Strange Loner.

After all, he isn’t alone in his subtle attempts at gaslighting the people :

“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long

as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will

happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

Maybe he will invite little Greta to be his Special Ambassador to something or someone or other…let’s see..the TransAtlantic yachting community?…no, what is it that she actually does…? Oh yes, Climate Change, she does Climate Change. That should bring in the young voters.

Gotta hand it to the kid though: she was way ahead of the Covid curve with that SkolStrejk gig. Nowadays, they are all on strike!

Strange, I’ve never put the Biden’s ‘proclivities’ and Thunberg in the same equation. That post made me do it. And I’ve not long polished off a nice Chicken salad.

God, I hate climate change and robotic little oddballs ..🤢( that’s not a green party member btw)
