Psaki Suggests Appointing a Woman to Run the Small Business Administration is a Great Help to Small Businesses

Psaki Suggests Appointing a Woman to Run the Small Business Administration is a Great Help to Small Businesses

Tone deaf.

When Press Secretary Jen Psaki what President Joe Biden is doing to help their small business, her response was definitely not expected.

Psaki answered:

First and foremost, he nominated a woman to lead the Small Business Administration, who formerly worked there.

The second thing is he signed an executive order to make it easier for minority-owned small businesses to get access to the funding that they need. And third is that in the American Rescue Plan, there’s currently about $60 billion to help a range of small businesses get access to additional funds.

The part begins at 1:21.

The absolute most important thing Biden has done to help small businesses is appointing a woman to lead the SBA? How? How?!

Lockdowns have killed too many small businesses. Many more are hanging on by a thread.

Do not fear, you guys!

Biden appointed a woman to the SBA. That is the absolute best thing he has done to help you out.

Oh, wait. Psaki did not even bother to name the candidate or her credentials.

Biden chose Isabel Guzman, who is now serving as California’s Small Business Advocate. Guzman worked as Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet in President Barack Obama’s administration.

I am sure those tons of money will go to the descendants of sub-Saharan Africans, and to those with indoor plumbing.

    hate to tell you this but it already does, on both accounts

    Well they do need to rebuild all those inner city markets and hair salons destroyed in last years BLM riots.

      What we really need, bulldoze them. For the most part, those areas were shit holes and buildings were already dilapidated.

      Create community gardens, make welfare recipients work every day in those gardens, those who do not work should have EBT funds released day by day. The same applies for harvesting and preserving food for later consumption.

    Actually it will not. It will just go to banks to help them pay losses on loans liquidated in bankruptcy and foreclosures.

    It will also go to a lot of overhead for bureaucrats, and into the pockets of various supporting contractors connected to the funding mechanism, some of whom may be black or have black figureheads to qualify as minority owned small businesses, but mostly not, but will rather be large business entities with lots of pass throughs for connected consultants and the like.

    You average African-American small businessman will not see dollar one from this.

    This is nothing but a mechanism to steal from future generations via federal debt generation to enrich the current well-connected generation. They have to steal from future generations because they have already ransacked and impoverished the current and existing hordes of deplorables. It’s a sham and a scam.

Psaki delivers these pronouncements with full assurance that no one will scrutinize them. Her job is not very demanding hence the reason she has it.

Some days our Jen is unusually stupid. Which is quite a feat considering how dumb she is on her best days.

If Biden nominated to form, the woman should have been Jatinder Chhabra.

I do not believe that answer was a mistake.

    Arminius in reply to Valerie. | February 17, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    It wasn’t a mistake, Valerie. As Kali small business owners, particularly restaurant, bar, and craft brewery owners are finding out (really, should have known at least thirty years ago, but all the sharp ones left 30 or 20 years ago) Democrats have no intention of helping small business owners.

    I mention Kali because it’s relevant; Isabel Guzman was the director of the Office of the Small Business Advocate for the state. To give you an idea of how “great” Kali is when it comes to the business environment, it’s last in the nation. In fact, it ranks behind Greece. You have to suck pretty bad to have a worse business environment than New York, New Jersey, and Greece.

    Kali banned indoor dining (except if you’re Gavin Newsom dining at the French Laundry) and a lot of localities banned even outdoor dining. A restaurant owner’s tearful video went viral; her restaurant was closed by government fiat (while Isabel Guzman was the “small business advocate” mind you) but right next to her outdoor dining area a major movie was filming and had set up craft services in the parking lot. That’s where they cater meals for the cast and crew. Their dining area looked almost exactly like the closed restaurant’s; picnic tables and benches covered by awnings.

    Why could the movie studio serve food while the restaurant couldn’t? Easy. The film industry is a major donor to the Democrat party in kali and small businesses aren’t. So they have a “office of the small business advocate” that does nothing of the sort. It’s window dressing to make economic illiterates (think AOC with her Boston University BA in economics*) hallucinate the government is playing a role in helping small business succeed. They, like a
    Cuomo spitting on the elderly and nursing home operators because the real money comes from the Greater New York Hospital Association who didn’t want elderly COVID patients taking up beds, or the Biden administration spitting on parents and students because the teachers’ unions own them, do whatever their major donors want and spit (I really wanted to spell the word with an “h”) on anyone who isn’t.

    In fact, they’re knee capping small businesses. Not just during this most politicized of diseases, but all the time. Yet economic illiterates who’ve never run a business (I include Isabel Guzman in this category; she’s a professional government regulator and not a business person**) think government is helping. Therefore economic illiterates believe other economic illiterates like Sen. Warren when she says “you didn’t build that.”

    The collective does everything possible to prevent small businesses from succeeding, and if small business succeeds despite them the collectivists are indoctrinated to believe we owe them a cut.

    But these economic illiterates are also indoctrinated to believe in the cult of diversity. Universities constantly argue before the courts that diversity provides some sort of benefit to their students. Inexplicably the courts believe them because never, not once, has any defendant been able to articulate a single, quantifiable benefit from diversity. Of course, the leftist judges never ask them to do so. Like in all things leftist, the costs are quantifiable and real. The benefits are vaporware.

    When Psaki gave that answer the audience wasn’t small business owners. Because her answer was rightly interpreted by business owners as, “F.U., we will (as their former deputy communications secretary so accurately put it when saying the quiet part out loud) destroy you; how do you like them latinx ovaries?” Her audience was the vastly larger crowd of economic illiterates and diversity cultists which is their base.

    * AOC’s nickname should be “Wedge,” because the wedge is the simplest tool in the shed. She’s none too bright, but having Marxist economics professors dumbs everyone down regardless of their IQ or lack thereof. Apparently it isn’t in the vast majority of economics professors’ interest to actually teach people about economics. Recall MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s comments about how they took advantage of the average American’s economic stupidity to pass that travesty. Which was a triply stupid comment. It revealed the economic incoherence of Obamacare. It revealed that economics as a supposed academic field is largely a racket, and he was one of the premier racketeers. But Americans who don’t learn economics from Marxist racketeers but in life understood exactly what a B.S. bill Obamacare was/is, hence the nationwide push to elect Scott Brown to the “Kennedy (hereditary) seat” to be the vote to kill it. Hence the reconciliation subterfuge.

    ** Guzman did found and run a private consultancy, GovContractPros which supposedly helped businesses navigate the regs to get federal contracts. But she was primarily a regulator at the state and federal level. She helped create those regs. Think she had any incentive to make them simpler to navigate? Hell no. Making those regs so complicated businesses can’t navigate them without help from her or people like her is job security. It’s a market that wouldn’t exist except for government regulations created by regulators like her. She’s not a business person. She’s a rent-seeker.

As a woman, I can’t bear her fake hair color. It’s very distracting. And very unflattering. Surely she could find a hair colorist who could give her a more natural color.

Don’t you think it HELPS being stupid when you are explaining the Biden Administration’s agenda and initiatives?

Cripes…..four years of this crap.

“Biden chose Isabel Guzman, who is now serving as California’s Small Business Advocate. Guzman worked as Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet in President Barack Obama’s administration”

translation,

Like so many of Biden’s picks she’s yet another life-long government paycheck recipient, never having dirtied her hands in the Dreaded Private Sector where accountability and results are what matter.

    ““Biden chose Isabel Guzman, who is now serving as California’s Small Business Advocate. Guzman worked as Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet in President Barack Obama’s administration”

    ….and has nice smelling hair, no doubt.

    jakebizlaw in reply to Taiwanese Lady. | February 17, 2021 at 4:10 pm

    Au contraire, Taiwanese Lady. Reliable sources disclose that the Principal Deputy Assistant Associate Under Advisor to the Administrator once engaged in the private enterprise of printing T-shirts for Build Back Better. Under the strict ethical standards of the Biden administration, S/he/it has divestedi its interest to a producer of triple cloth masks headquarter in Wuhan province.

As usual for these people, the focus is not on the nominee’s qualifications, but rather to what identity group the nominee belongs. All it does is tell you who they’re pandering to with this nomination.

Maybe people will wake up and see how bad this administration is for USA.

Oh, wait. Psaki did not even bother to name the candidate or her credentials.

She did name her credentials. “Who formerly worked there.” Like that’s something small businesses give a **** about.

Or, you know, bring in the *person* who seems to best fit the job criteria. Oh, that’s right. Meritocracy = racism. Obviously the best way to pick someone is by how much melanin they have and what is or isn’t between their legs.

Amazing how something that would be abjectly repugnant if said one way becomes a Leftist dream with ecstatic press when said another.

Imagine what would have happened if Psaki had been asked how the SBA would help small business and she said, “First and foremost, he nominated a man to run the department.”

Lib heads would explode across the country, and there would be demands for her resignation before she left the podium.

Depending on which woman he nominated, that could be true. Given his track record of calling on incompetent party apparatchiks, I doubt it very much.

yet another reminder that there are just too damned many karens in the world

Sexism, like racism, works in both directions.

This is sexist. Impeach her.

This is truly groundbreaking, because no Republican President would ever appoint a woman to this position. Oh, except for Donald Trump. And George H. W. Bush.

How could anyone with half a brain and half a conscience vote (D) in any election, ever again? The only thing at which the Marxocrats excel is corruption, stupidity, and disinformation. People who vote (D) for any election should be stripped of their right to vote.

Period.

If Jen is telling us that appointing a woman to head the SBA is the most important thing Biden has done for small business, I would have to agree with him because he sure hasn’t done anything to help small business or workers. Hey Jen, could you circle back with a list of positive steps taken by Biden thus far to help small business?

I have studied liberalism/progressivism/leftisim for over sixty years. It would seem that I’ve heard it all, but I sometimes hear or read something that is totally jaw-dropping. With the Biden regime, I’ve begun to hear those insane comments again.

Psaki and Harris and so many other nominees/appointments by Slo Joe are examples of how lousy his appointments are, largely because the 1st “qualification” is the sex of the person. Even better when the nominee checks 2 boxes – such as Haaland from NM: a woman who is 1/2 pueblo Indian: she has managed nothing as large as Interior, just some small pueblo offices. Then there is an new undersecretary in HHS; the man dressing as a woman whom Wolf made Health Secty in PA; another pay-off to another group of supporters. Thank each and every fool who voted for Slo Joe/harris.
