The Brew: Can You Define ‘Woman’ Without a Degree in Biology? Can You Imagine the Worst Job in Politics?

By Al Perrotta Published on March 24, 2022

Happy Thursday!

Now that Kamala Harris has educated us on the “importance of the passage of time,” let’s not waste any time, and get right to the Brew!

Ketanji Brown Jackson Can’t Define What a ‘Woman’ Is

… but, like porn, she knows a woman when she sees one. On Wednesday, Jackson recognized that she is a woman, Sen. Blackburn is a woman and her mom is a woman. But a definition? During her confirmation hearing Tuesday, the SCOTUS nominee was asked point blank by Sen. Marsha Blackburn for her definition of “woman.”

“Can I provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?,” Jackson replied. “No, I can’t.”

“You can’t?” asked Blackburn.

“Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.”

Obviously she’s woke and is just being cute. And lots of ink is being spent on her reluctance to answer the question.

And lots of pointed mockery over her saying she can’t define what a woman is because she’s not a biologist.

And as The Stream‘s John Zmirak noted, she’s conceding that sex is a matter of biology. That should get the trans-activists in an uproar.

I just have one question: What’s the point of celebrating Ketanji Brown Jackson becoming the first Black woman on the Supreme Court if she can’t even tell us what a woman is?

Imagine Politicians Being Political Opportunists

Meanwhile, CNN’s Stephen Collinson has some deep analysis of the Senate Confirmation Hearings: “Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson could make history as the first Black female Supreme Court justice but some Senate Republicans with their eyes on higher political office are making her confirmation hearing all about them.”

Gee, politicians being self absorbed. What a revelation! But seriously, Collinson doesn’t remember 2016 presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar playing to the camera with withering and false attacks on Brett Kavanaugh?

Adding to the absurdity? Sen. Cory Booker himself yesterday accused GOP Senators of being “performance artists” in the hearing. Yes, the guy who in Kavanaugh’s hearing compared himself to Spartacus!


Wednesday, he tried comparing Jackson to Harriet Tubman.

Might be a good time to remind people Cory Booker bought and sold Jussie Smollett’s racial attack hoax. He knows all about performance.

The Clintons in Quarantine After Hillary Diagnosis. Hillary Asks What Movies Should They Watch

After testing positive for COVID, Hillary Clinton asked on Twitter what movies she and Bill should watch while in quarantine.

Naturally, the trolls came out. With 13 Hours, the harrowing account of the Benghazi terror attack, being a top suggestion.

I was going to make some smart aleck remark like, “Yeah, she’d watch the movie. But think it’s a comedy.”

Then I found this.

New Book Raises Interesting Question About Kamala Harris

An upcoming book called This Will Not Pass: Trump, Biden and the Battle for America’s Future is revealing inside dirt from the White House. Particularly on tensions between Harris and Team Biden. And the book comes from two New York Times reporters.

Politico spells out plenty of examples. But this one caught our eye: “Speaking in confidence with a close adviser to her husband’s campaign, the future First lady posed a pointed question. There are millions of people in the United States, she began. Why, she asked, do we have to choose the one who attacked Joe?”

If Jill didn’t want her, and Biden’s inner circle like Chris Dodd didn’t trust her, who picked her? Is any sane husband going to ignore the ire of their wife to form a professional partnership with someone who shivved him in the back?

The book also says Joe Biden was furious when stories came out last June sourced to the White House ripping Kamala. Biden vowed to fire any staffer stirring up negative stories on Harris. Interestingly, the same day the White House leaks blasting Kamala became public on CNN, Jill Biden tweeted this:

That’s Jill behind the President’s desk on Air Force One. Jill being elevated the same day Kamala was being brought low?

Wives don’t forget.

Kamala Gets a New Press Secretary

Kamala Harris has a new press secretary. Her name is Kirsten Allen. And she needs our prayers. Hard to imagine a tougher job in politics than being Kamala Harris’ press secretary.

(Perhaps not as tough as being Vladimir Putin’s Minister of Defense when your war is not going well. In fact, Sergei Shoigu hasn’t been seen in 12 days. “Heart problems,” Russian news outlets say.)

The hiring comes as Harris staffers keep fleeing out the back door as if the Russian army were coming through the front door.

But what advice would you give Allen? Newt Gingrich suggested not letting Harris leave the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory. (Home of the VP residence.) Cold. But constitutionally, the VP only has to two jobs: Serve as president of the Senate … and take over if a president dies or is incapacitated. That’s it. In fact, from 1789 until the 1950’s, presiding over the Senate was about all our Vice Presidents did.

Since conceivably Harris can bang a gavel without fouling it up, let her stick to the job she’s constitutionally tasked with. While on Capitol Hill, she can keep track of Biden’s heart monitor. There must be an app for that.

Donald Trump, Jr. Launches News Aggregation App

With the Drudge Report a mockery of its former self, Donald Trump Jr. hopes to fill the gap with his new MxM News App. The MxM stands for “minute-by-minute,” and promises “mainstream news without mainstream bias.”

“We created the MxM News app to help people cut through that clutter and get trustworthy news and information about topics that matter and impact their lives,” Trump Jr. said. “We view it as an important public service and also believe it will be a great business.”

We need alternative outlets. Especially with Big Tech censoring news outlets. The latest? Twitter is now calling reporting by The Federalist violent content.”
