I’m sure by now you’ve become familiar with Jennifer “circle back” Psaki, who won the title of Whitehouse press secretary against all odds. Many of the more venomous Trump supporters have taken to petty name-calling and even straight-up hate speech at the woman who is now the target of deeply ingrained contempt.
First of all, we need to rise above this behavior as it seems to just be perpetuating the divide, many of these damaged MAGAtts recall the treatment given to Sarah Sanders Huckabee, and Kalie McEnany and feel justified in their bullying. Unfortunately, Jennifer Psaki has done little to stop the proverbial caca from being flung her way, In fact, she’s made herself into the perfect target.
First, we have damning evidence that our new Press Secretary can circle endlessly without becoming dizzy or nauseous:
It certainly caused enough of a stir to make the Biden strategists implement a new gambit. A recent report at The Daily Beast reveals the Biden White House is asking for questions from establishment media before her pressers. It’d be unbelievable if it wasn’t totally predictable. Could you imagine if Kayleigh McEnany ever did this? It would have made headlines in the liberal rags and legacy media television 24-7.
The Daily Beast reported:
If you’re a reporter with a tough question for the White House press secretary, Joe Biden’s staff wouldn’t mind knowing about it in advance.
According to three sources with knowledge of the matter, as well as written communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the new president’s communications staff have already on occasion probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when called upon during briefings.
The requests prompted concerns among the White House press corps, whose members, like many reporters, are sensitive to the perception that they are coordinating with political communications staffers.
One reporter raised the issue during an informal White House Correspondents Association Zoom call last Friday. According to multiple sources, leaders at the meeting advised print reporters to push back against requests by the White House press team to learn of questions in advance, or simply to not respond to the Biden team’s inquiries.
“While it’s a relief to see briefings return, particularly with a commitment to factual information, the press can’t really do its job in the briefing room if the White House is picking and choosing the questions they want,” one White House correspondent said. “That’s not really a free press at all.”
“It pissed off enough reporters for people to flag it for the [WHCA] for them to deal with it,” another knowledgeable source said.
Of course, it’s ok to be a complete and utter fascist so long as the entire big 6 media is heading your marketing campaign! Also, any and all critique or dissent can simply be labeled as “hate-speech” and suddenly you become a victim instead of a heartless cog in the big money system. We see that particular strategy coming more into play with last Monday’s White House press conference, when Jen Psaki confirmed that President Biden and his team fully support Big Tech censorship of citizen’s First Amendment, stating that the administration supports the power of Big Tech monopolies to restrict “hate speech” even further.
“This may hard to believe, but we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about or talking about President Trump here, former President Trump, to be very clear,” Psaki said in response to a question about what effect President Trump’s Twitter ban has had on the current regime.
Psaki continued, “Um, I think that’s a question that is probably more appropriate for Republican members, um, who, um, are looking for ways to support a bipartisan, uh, and whether that gives them space, but I can’t say we miss him on Twitter.”
“We’ve spoken to and [Biden] has spoken to the need for social media platforms to continue to take steps to reduce hate speech,” Psaki added.
And then we have the Citadel connection. I’m sure everyone reading is now familiar with the Gamestop scandal that we covered last week and the internet has been abuzz over.
But now let’s advance the story. Rumors have been flying around online that Biden’s Press Secretary has a brother who is a Portfolio Manager at Citadel (the company that owns Robinhood).
It appears that there is indeed a Jeff Psaki at Citadel, but the relation to Jen is unknown. This sentence was added, and then deleted, last week from Jen’s Wikipedia:
The International Business Times (IB Times) has even investigated the claims:
As social media has been swarmed with information surrounding the GameStop controversy, a new claim attempting to link White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to the stock trading platform Robinhood.
A Reddit user pushed the claim that Psaki had a brother who worked for Citadel LLC – the capital firm facing accusations of manipulating the market and forcing Robinhood to restrict trading activity for GameStop and other stocks that experienced an improbably rally thanks to Redditors who took on Wall Street’s biggest players.
A Twitter user also shared an excerpt from an article on Citadel’s plans to hire three new staffers as part of a revamp of its investment unit and cites Jeff Psaki as one of the employees.
What is Citadel’s Role in the GameStop Controversy?
On Thursday, Robinhood announced that it was restricting trading for the stocks that were being “short-squeezed” and investors would only be able to close their positions. This meant that traders would only be able to sell the stocks and not be able to purchase additional shares, causing the stocks to nosedive.
The price of Gamestop’s stock rose from $20 from earlier this month to more than $480 this week. This increase came as a result of Reddit users who decided to buy the stock en masse in order to artificially inflate its value and take on Wall Street’s hedge funds that were shorting the stock.
The fact that Citadel is one of Robinhood’s biggest customers and its recent billion-dollar investment in Melvin Capital – one of the hedge funds that held short positions on GameStop, AMC Entertainment and other scripts – led to speculation that Citadel influenced Robinhood’s decision to restrict trading of the stocks on the platform.
Is There a Conflict of Interest?
Citadel has denied these rumors, saying it had nothing to do with Robinhood’s suspension of trading on the stocks. “Citadel is not involved in, or responsible for, any retail brokers’ decision to stop trading in any way,” a spokesperson for the hedge fund said in a statement obtained by Fox News.
“Citadel Securities has not instructed or otherwise caused any brokerage firm to stop, suspend, or limit trading or otherwise refuse to do business,” the statement added. “Citadel Securities remains focused on continuously providing liquidity to our clients across all market conditions.”
And as far as Jen’s relationship to Jeff is concerned, although it could be perceived as a conflict of interest, there is no evidence to support the claim that the two of them are actually related other than the fact that they share the same last name.
Just some strangeness to consider. But the fun doesn’t stop there! After the Gamestop scandal was in full swing and she was more or less outted as a part of the international financial elite deep state or “ruling class”, she decided to taunt the populist GameStop investors at her briefing last Monday, stating that the Reddit-driven short squeeze propelling GameStop stock to new heights is “under the purview of the SEC.” Psaki also said that “congressional attention” should be paid to “market volatility,” and pledged the White House’s commitment to working with Congress on financial reforms.
The GameStop Revolution, powered by the Reddit community r/wallstreetbets, is costing Wall Street short-sellers billions of dollars. The hedge fund Melvin Capital bet heavily against the beloved video-game retailer GameStop. Young men of all political persuasions were outraged, so they began investing in GameStop with record small-dollar purchases. By driving up the stock price of GameStop, the populists are hurting the hedge funders who were trying to drive the stock down. The maneuver is called a “short squeeze” and it has captured the American imagination. (Again, if you aren’t up to date on this please consider reading more HERE.
Psaki previously told a Bloomberg reporter that the Biden White House was “monitoring” the GameStop surge.
And if you haven’t checked her out already I highly recommend checking out the Body Language Ghost on youtube and rumble (the rumble videos contain far more content than the youtube counterparts for reasons you can probably guess).
