Jen Psaki: Biden Ramping Up Attacks On ‘MAGA Republicans’ Because ‘It’s Election Season’ And ‘The Gloves Are Off’ | Eastern North Carolina Now | Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said President Joe Biden is going after so-called “MAGA Republicans” to help Democrats win in the November midterms.

    Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said President Joe Biden is going after so-called "MAGA Republicans" to help Democrats win in the November midterms.

    Appearing as a panelist on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, Psaki said that in the early stages of Biden's presidency, the American people did not want him to attack former President Donald Trump and his supporters. But now that many of Biden's major agenda items have been passed, he is taking a harder line in hopes of holding Democratic majorities in the House and Senate.

    "You were there [at a time] when you didn't say [Trump's] name," Todd began his interview with Psaki. "'Don't say their names.' It's like Beetlejuice, somehow it won't show up if you don't say their name. Now [Biden] leans into it more. Why?"

    "There was a strategic decision made when he came into office that 'that's not what the public wanted,'" Psaki replied. "The public wanted a President who was going to ... kind of expand the base of people who [are] interested in them. But now, it's election season again, he did a lot of what he wanted to do, much of it in a bipartisan way, getting legislation done. And now the gloves are off. He's got to maintain control of at least one house of Congress."

    Biden has stepped up his rhetoric over the summer, saying that Trump and his supporters in the Republican Party are motivated by "semi-fascism" at a donor event in August. He went on to brand them as threats to American democracy in his now-infamous "Soul of the Nation" address on September 1, which was widely decried as one of the most divisive political speeches by an American president.

    Biden's heated rhetoric, however, might not help him or the Democratic Party retain control of Congress. An ABC News/Washington Post poll of likely voters released Sunday found that Republicans have a five-point advantage in the generic Congressional ballot in 2022, and former President Trump holds a two-point advantage in a hypothetical 2024 matchup among registered voters.

    Last week, one of the nation's leading independent pollsters pointed out that Biden's divisive tone would likely make polling Trump supporters even more complicated, meaning pollsters could undercount Trump voters, and GOP turnout would be even higher than expected in 2022.

    "Now [the] Biden administration has essentially classified 'MAGA Republicans' as a threat to democracy marshaling federal law enforcement to focus on them," Trafalgar Group chief pollster Robert Cahaly said in a Twitter thread. "This move has created a new type of voter that will be even harder to poll or even estimate."

    "I call this new group 'submerged voters,'" Cahaly said. "They aren't putting stickers on their cars, signs in their yards, posting their opinions, or even answering polls. At this point I think it's fair to say that Biden's pursuit of and attacks on 'MAGA Republicans' has created an army of voters who will be virtually impossible to poll (even for us) and more difficult still to estimate."

    "The 2022 Republican turnout will likely be higher than any of the polls or models are showing," he concluded. "All polls (including ours) will understate the impact of these 'submerged voters.'"

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
