Michelle Wolf Refuses to Apologize for Brutal Attacks on Sanders, Doubles Down Instead

Published

on

Michelle Wolf, the comedienne who has now become famous after launching a brutal attack against Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, is not at all sorry for her comments and is actually doubling down on them.

What makes this situation so egregious is that Sanders was sitting close to Wolf in the audience when she made her comments, which in all honesty were badly done attempts to look cool, hip, and “woke.”

Sanders wasn’t the only target of Wolf’s vitriol. She tossed out insults targeting many different individuals within the Trump administration, causing many folks on both sides of the aisle to be disgusted by her behavior.

In an unapologetic interview with NPR after the dinner, Wolf says she does not regret a word of the speech and that she is “glad [she] stuck to [her] guns.”

When asked specifically about the attacks on Sarah Sanders’ looks, Wolf demurred. The comedian said that her joke attacking Sanders’ makeup “wasn’t about Sarah’s looks.” She added that comparing the White House press secretary to a frumpy fictional character that runs a sex-cult in “The Handmaiden’s Tale” was a reference to her “personality.”

What’s really mind blowing is that Wolf spoke to NPR about things that weren’t caught on camera and the comedienne  slammed Sanders — again — for not clapping when CNN won an award:

Part of the dinner that wasn’t televised is they were giving out awards and everyone was standing to congratulate the people that were getting awards and [White House press secretary] Sarah [Sanders] was sitting. … CNN reporters got awards. … They came up to accept them and [Sanders] sat the whole time, while we all stood and shook their hands. I would say if this is about celebrating the media, she wasn’t there to celebrate the media.

Why would Sanders want to celebrate the news media, who have dedicated the vast majority of their programming time to destroying her, the president, and the pro-America agenda they are trying to pass in order to improve life for American citizens and preserve our liberty?

CNN has built their entire platform the last two years on trying to dig up something, anything, that will bury Trump and get him ousted from office. The reporters from this organization have been increasingly hostile and rude toward Sanders.

Would Wolf be clapping if the tables were turned? Probably not. She’d be a raging mess looking for any excuse possible to lash out at those who attacked her.

Sanders has graciously refused to engage in any sort of back and forth over Wolf’s comments simply stating she was “praying for her.”

That’s class.

Biden Bailed Out by Germany as 78,000 Pounds of Formula Arrives

The administration has been abysmal in addressing the crisis.

Published

Everywhere we look in America today, something is amiss.  This is not the well-oiled machine of yore, and in such an astounding way that the stagnation could only have come from the top.

And yes, the Biden administration’s reluctance to lead has been a rather apparent issue from the get-go.  (Heck, it didn’t even look like Biden even wanted to run for President, let alone be the President).

Even now, as an astonishing baby formula shortage affects our nation’s parents, it took help from Germany to get anything done.

A military plane carrying enough specialty infant formula for more than half a million baby bottles arrived Sunday in Indianapolis, the first of several flights expected from Europe aimed at relieving a shortage that has sent parents scrambling to find enough to feed their children.

President Joe Biden authorized the use of Air Force planes for the effort, dubbed “Operation Fly Formula,” because no commercial flights were available.

The formula weighed 78,000 pounds (35,380 kilograms), White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One as Biden flew from South Korea to Japan.

The administration tried to spin this into a “win”.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was in Indianapolis to greet the arrival of the first shipment.

The flights are intended to provide “some incremental relief in the coming days” as the government works on a more lasting response to the shortage, Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council, said Sunday.

Deese told CNN’s “State of the Union” that Sunday’s flight brought 15% of the specialty medical grade formula needed in the U.S., and because of various actions by the government, people should see “more formula in stores starting as early as this week.”

There is still a good possibility that the American manufacturers who’ve fallen behind won’t be getting back up to speed for several weeks still, which means Germany may be called on for another drop sooner rather than later.

Trouble Coming as Global Food Shortage Looms Just Weeks Away

Now this is getting a little scary…

Published

on

The Russian invasion of Ukraine may look small on television, as it bellows away thousands of miles to our east, shown to us in soundbites and tidbits and tweets.  But for those living within that daily nightmare, the trouble is real and it is heavy.

Soon, however, the world at large will begin to feel the reverberations of this illegal and immoral invasion, as we begin to find ourselves hungrier and hungrier.

A food supply expert warns that the world faces a global crisis in just 10 weeks, echoing a warning from Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

“Russia has blocked almost all ports and all, so to speak, maritime opportunities to export food – our grain, barley, sunflower and more. A lot of things,” Zelenskyy said Saturday. “There will be a crisis in the world. The second crisis after the energy one, which was provoked by Russia.”

“Now it will create a food crisis if we do not unblock the routes for Ukraine, do not help the countries of Africa, Europe, Asia, which need these food products,” he added.

Just how bad could it get?

Zelenskyy said that if Ukraine does not regain control of the contested southern ports, the world will face a difficult situation: The country produces a substantial amount of the global food supply, including between 25% and 30% of the world’s grain supply along with Russia.

According to data from the Observatory of Economic Complexity, Ukraine also accounts for 9.29% of the world’s corn supply.

One expert had a chilling warning about the issue, labeling it as potentially “seismic”.
