Vice President Kamala Harris is losing yet another staffer, in this case, her director of public engagement and intergovernmental affairs, as CNN reported on Friday. The staffer in question, Michael Collins, announced his departure in a letter.
“It has been a difficult decision, but I’ve decided to leave this amazing experience in the middle of August and transition to the next stage of my life,” he wrote in the letter, according to CNN. “I’m so grateful to the Vice President for trusting me with this privilege and was honored to support the President’s and Vice President’s tireless, committed and historic work.”
The departures just keep on coming in the Biden administration, especially when it comes to the vice president, something even CNN couldn’t help noticing. “There has been a regular cadence of exits from the vice president’s office since late last year ,” the report mentioned, also referencing the announced departures of Rohini Kosoglu, who served as her domestic policy adviser, and Meghan Groob, who had served as her director of speechwriting.
While Kosoglu was one of her longest-serving aides, Groob had been in the position for just four months. As Katie highlighted in covering Groob’s departure earlier this month, Harris has been known for making particularly memorable speeches as of late in how bizarre they are.
This is not the only time such a mainstream outlet has discussed the disarray that occurs with the vice president. Last November, CNN ran a piece about the “entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus” that goes on at her office. The Washington Post put out a similar piece last December as well.
When it comes to departures within the Biden administration, though, Communications Director Kate Bedingfield made the “last minute” decision to stay working for the president after all, as Sarah covered on […]
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
