The Brew: Fooled by a Pair of Fake Glasses? White House Cyber Security Analyst Spills the Beans to Undercover O’Keefe

Meanwhile, Bud Light turns back the clock and turns to a once-cancelled comedian to help rescue the brand from itself.

Happy Wednesday!

Today’s Brew is a cup of Joe.

Biden’s Top Cyber Security Guy Spills About His “Decline”

Did you ever think “How silly is it that all Superman had to do was put on glasses and geeky suits and people would not recognize him? Nobody in real life would fall for that.” Well … the top cyber security guy in the White House did. He spilled his guts to famous journalist James O’Keefe, fooled by glasses and a bit of hair color.

What Charlie Kraiger, Cyber Security Analyst and Foreign Affairs Officer for the Executive Office of the President, had to say over drinks is not exactly shocking or new. But hearing it out of the mouth of a high-ranking White House official is. (And yeah, hearing a supposed cyber security expert for the President being so loose lipped is definitely shocking.)

  1. That “Biden is definitely slowing down” and “I’m just telling you what I heard. They’re really concerned about it.”
  2. The White House talked about replacing Kamala Harris on the ticket, but decided against it. “She’s not popular, but you can’t remove the first black lady to be vice president from the ******* presidential ticket. Like what kind of message are you going to send to like African-American voters?”
  3. “Vice President Harris hemorrhages black staff. She can’t keep black staff. They quit on her en masse.”

Oh, Kraiger also told O’Keefe, “I’m good at keeping secrets.”

O’Keefe is promising a part two today.

Kraiger has vanished off social media and as of 10 p.m. Eastern the White House is not commenting.

Internet News Agency offers an interesting take on X on why O’Keefe is still able to fool so many top people. “It’s ironic because the censorship of O’Keefe keeps him from being recognizable by the liberal elite class. Hence he can still pull this off. Absolutely incredible.”

And here you thought it was the Clark Kent glasses.

Tara Reade Sues DOJ, Citing FBI Operation to Destroy Her After Going Public With Biden Allegations

Meanwhile, Tara Reade, who accused then-Senator Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, is suing the DOJ for $10 million. Reade claims that not only was her allegation buried, but that when she went public in 2019, the FBI launched a widespread effort to destroy her called “Operation Cassandra.”

Biden using the Feds to target those who could harm him politically? Where have we heard that one before? School board parents? Pro-life demonstrators? Trump and anyone associated with him? (O’Keefe himself has witnessed it. Biden’s FBI raided his home in search of daughter Ashley’s shocking diary.)

Will Reade’s suit be buried by the media, given a 100th the attention E. Jean Carroll gets? The former Senate staffer and Democrat activist now lives in Russia, so if you hear anything it will be how she is a Putin stooge being used to mess with Joe Biden’s campaign.

Biden Going to East Palestine, Ohio. Finally.

Joe Biden is finally going to East Palestine, the New York Post reported Wednesday. Took him a year after the disaster to make the plans, but he’s now going in February. Local business owner DJ Yokley is not impressed. He told Fox & Friends, “The American people have awakened to realize that the leader of our country did not show up to the greatest catastrophe of 2023. And now he’s going to show up because it is an election year.”

Still, he’s going. Give the man that. Judging from the new book The Amateur Hour about Kamala Harris and the turbulence and tension with the Administration, perhaps Biden just wants to go somewhere less toxic than the White House.

Also in February — February 21, in fact — Biden’s brother James will be testifying behind closed doors in the House Impeachment Inquiry into alleged corruption while Joe was VP. They’re curious about all manner of Biden Inc. wheeling and dealing and cashing in on the family name, along with curious “loan repayments” to the Big Guy. Of particular interest is James and Joe’s involvement in a deal with a Chinese energy company, CEFC.

Bud Light Turns to Conservative-Leaning Comedian to Help Rescue Brand

Back in the day, Bud Light blew up into a major brand, thanks to the help of comedian Rodney Dangerfield. Dangerfield starred in a long series of funny and now classic commercials.

Now, after a disastrous year that saw the brand collapse after teaming with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney, Bud Light is seeing if it can recapture the old magic. No, Rodney Dangerfield is no longer with us, but Shane Gillis is. (They even have similar builds.) Bud Light announced it is partnering with the conservative-leaning comedian on a new campaign. Gillis confirmed the news: “Excited to announce partnership with Bud Light #budlightpartner.”

Gillis has actually had a taste of what Bud Light has gone through. He was signed to join Saturday Night Live in 2019, but when old, offensive clips surfaced he was cancelled faster than you can say “Live from New York.”

What a bounce back it would be if he could help Bud Light bounce back. And what a blow to cancel culture.
