In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


White House names Karine Jean-Pierre to replace Psaki as press secretary

As many of you know, White House press secretary Jen Psaki is moving on to greener pastures, as in lots more green, at MSNBC. She will leave the White House later this month.

In her place will be Karine Jean-Pierre, 44, who will be the first black and openly gay press secretary. Her partner is CNN national correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, and they have a daughter.

“Karine not only brings the experience, talent and integrity needed for this difficult job, but she will continue to lead the way in communicating about the work of the Biden-Harris Administration on behalf of the American people,” Biden said in a statement, adding that “Jen Psaki has set the standard for returning decency, respect and decorum to the White House Briefing Room.”

She’ll begin after May 13, which will be Psaki’s last day.

Psaki today called Jean-Pierre “my partner in truth.”

  1. Waiting for them to pose in the sorority pose position.
    I think its perfectly ok to Jen to give her “friend” an arm on the shoulder, very chummy. But if she was handing that off to a guy, still acceptable?
    I thought, in this age of protecting privacy, and workplace abuse, we are all hands off? In my small office I am required by law to spend time each year on workplace safety and we even have a workplace ” officer” that is in charge of workplace abuse, sexual and otherwise. We are 7 people. So, can I put my arm on one of my co-workers today?
