Why does Jen Psaki the White House spokeswoman even bother to hold press conferences? She takes questions from reporters and then refuses to answer them. I think it is because she won’t answer any question that is embarrassing to Joe Biden, which basically breaks down to any policy he pushes. She probably has the second toughest job in Washington. The hardest job is trying to keep Biden from saying anything embarrassing.
Her most recent foray into nonanswer answers is the current legislation that would strip religious freedom for every American in the country.
In the bill, doctors will be forced to perform abortions and sex-change operations even if it conflicts with their religious beliefs. The Democrats are trying to do this even though it conflicts with the very first Amendment to the constitution:
Just to review, here is the text of the First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Psaki was asked if Biden was worried that the Equality Act would force doctors to perform surgeries that conflict with their religion. She never answered the question although she said Biden was a big supporter of Roe V Wade. I guess that means he is not a supporter of the US Constitution. The House also passed the Covid relief bill even though it has been ruled that the Democrats cannot pass the minimum wage through budget reconciliation.
Here is the exchange:
OWEN JENSEN, EWTN GLOBAL CATHOLIC NETWORK: There’s pro-life groups right now very concerned about the the phrase ‘pregnancy discrimination’ in the Equality Act. You’re familiar with that I’m sure, that it would force doctors to perform abortions even if it violates their conscience. There are also concerns the bill would force doctors to perform gender transition surgeries and sterilizations again, even if violates their conscience, what does the president, President Biden, say about those concerns?
JEN PSAKI, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: The president’s been a longtime supporter of Roe v. Wade. It has been his consistent belief that should be law and he will fight to continue to protect that as being law.
JENSEN: The conscience concerns is not a concern of his?
PSAKI: [Inaudible], I think again, I’m just gonna state with the president’s policies are. Did you have another question?
JENSEN: Will President Biden keep the conscience and religious freedom division at HHS, the office that was put in place under President Trump, but keep it in place to receive conscience complaints from those doctors?
PSAKI: You’ll have to talk to future Secretary Becerra once he is confirmed.
What she 8s saying is that Becerra has to be confirmed before he will reveal what he would do in office. No one that refuses to answer should be confirmed. Republicans should no9t buy an Anna Navarro in a poke.
