1 – WH defends Biden’s ‘great MAGA king’ comment, says president isn’t afraid to call out ‘extreme positions’
Fox News reports: Outgoing White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday defended President Biden calling his predecessor, former President Donald Trump, “the great MAGA king.”
During her daily press briefing, Psaki was asked by Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich whether the president’s comments were unifying.
“Well, I would say that the president is not afraid to call out what he sees as extreme positions that are out of line with where the American people stand,” Psaki responded.
President Biden on Wednesday unveiled his “great MAGA king” nickname for Trump during an event last week.

DML: Too late, just like Clinton’s “Deplorables” slam, this one has backfired on Biden bigtime! If you haven’t seen Trump’s response, check it out in the report below:
2 – Rand Paul objection delays $40 billion Ukraine aid package
The Hill reports: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) hit the brakes Thursday on bipartisan hopes that the Senate could quickly pass nearly $40 billion in Ukraine aid before leaving town for the week.
Paul objected to a deal offered by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that would have set up votes on Thursday afternoon on the funding and on an amendment from Paul, who wanted to include language in the bill to expand an Afghanistan inspector general role to include oversight of the Ukraine funds.
Paul blocked the votes because he wants his language inserted into the text of the bill instead of having to take his chance with an amendment vote, which could be blocked. The stalemate will delay the Senate’s passage of the Ukraine package until at least next week, and potentially beyond.
“I think they’re going to have to go through the long way,” Paul told The Hill about what comes next after the floor standoff.

3 – Liberal groups push Big Tech to increase censorship during midterm elections
The Washington Examiner reports: More than 100 prominent liberal groups are pushing the largest social media companies, such as Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, and Twitter, to moderate and censor more content on the grounds of countering “disinformation” ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
Conservatives have been particularly fearful that such efforts would result in greater censorship of right-leaning content and Republicans. Some notable figures on the Right, such as former President Donald Trump and Steve Bannon, have been banned from major platforms for making statements that the companies say were inflammatory and encouraged violence through disinformation.
The liberal organizations, including Common Cause, a watchdog group; the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank; the NAACP; the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group; and certain chapters of Planned Parenthood Votes sent a letter Thursday to the CEOs of tech giants, including Facebook, Google, Snapchat, and TikTok.
The groups called on the companies to take more aggressive steps to combat content meant to “confuse, intimidate, and harass voters, suppress the right to vote or otherwise disrupt our democracy.”
We’ve joined 120+ orgs in calling on @Meta, @Twitter, @Snapchat, @Google, @instagram, @YouTube & @tiktok_us to take action ahead of the ’22 midterms to stop the spread of election disinformation, which leads to voter intimidation, harassment & suppression. https://t.co/oYGOGUHY4M https://t.co/e0zDtLOqSb

DML: Well, of COURSE… they want to silence all conservatives. And then there’s THIS:
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT…
Need formula? Take Interstate 10 into Texas & then head south to Laredo. Park @ the international bridge then ask Border Patrol for a case. Reports say US gov has pallets of formula for illegal aliens. So no need to show ID, in fact showing ID may move you to the back of the line https://t.co/kZpCptv1Zc
