If the Babylon Bee posted a story about White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki saying she’s okay with parents sending their kids to school with seven masks and two hats to keep them warm in the winter while they’re forced to eat outside, everyone would assume it’s satire. It’s not. It happened.
Psaki was asked by a reporter: “Sometimes students are required to eat outside or eat distanced from each other or not talk to each other while they’re eating. Does the White House want to see those rules lifted, as well, to get back to a little more normal school experience?”
If she had just said, “No,” and moved onto the next question, it would have been the most honest thing she ever said from the podium. Instead, she did her standard spin with a personal anecdote and generalizations about healthcare being important to this regime. Her response about a “version of normalcy” is striking:
Well schools are taking steps, especially since we’ve only recently approved through the CDC and FDA vaccines for five to 11-year-olds — they’re not approved for kids younger than that — to keep their kids safe and keep students safe. I will tell you I have a three-year-old who goes to school, sits outside for snacks and lunch, wears a mask inside and it’s no big deal to him. I’m not saying that’s the case for everybody but these are steps that schools are taking to keep kids safe and I think the vast majority of parents appreciate that.
Obviously we want to get to a point where we’re turning to a version of normalcy for everybody, right, where you’re not sending your kids backpacked with seven extra masks, right, where you’re not adding two hats so that they’re warm outside for a snack. There’s no question that’s the case but we also think the most important thing should be safety, the safety of kids, keeping kids in school, which the president is very focused on and some of these steps creative steps that schools have taken have enabled that to be possible.
What Psaki seems to believe (or at least wants us to believe) the “vast majority of parents appreciate” kids being forced to eat outside in the bitter cold because unhinged, anti-science teachers and school administrators want to normalize anti-social behavior in the next generation. As The Post Millennial’s Katie Daviscourt posted on Twitter, there are reasons for parents to be concerned.

Brodigan at Louder with Crowder had some thoughts:
The worst part is how the White House will lie with a straight face that this is all because of “the science.” Acting like we don’t know that the CDC was busted rewriting guidelines with the teachers’ unions — who are not the science — not only once, but they were busted twice. Yes, the same teachers’ unions who give Democrat politicians lots and lots of money.
It’s clear that the only way this country will ever get back to normal is to vote out the people who are working overtime to make sure we don’t get back to normal. Even then, there’s no guarantee and those people may have to be voted out as well. But the people in charge now don’t care about you and, even worse, don’t care about your children. If your answer to seeing five-year-old’s forced to eat outside in the cold and rain is anything other than “this is wrong,” you should not be in public life.
Kids have effectively zero chance of dying from Covid-19, yet the draconian (and futile) efforts to stop the spread among them in schools would make one think death by Covid is guaranteed without government and schools acting stupid.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
