Hearings in Congress are Essentially Stage Plays.

EARL DONE THIS

With the exception of the most mundane budget hearing, if the stakes are high most congressional hearings from dramatic confirmation battles to today's impeachment circus investigations, everything is scripted and planned exactly as in a play. The plot and conclusion (findings) are pre-determined.  The actors (witnesses) are selected to make the specific ‘case’ that the director (majority) decided in advance. Actors (witnesses) are often coached in what to say, and their script (testimony), especially in high-profile plays like impeachment or the Kavanaugh hearing, may be written, coached or edited by the committee staff, and the actors (witnesses) may be coached when to cry or make alarming statements.  Props (graphics, videos, media presence, audience, etc.) will be carefully engineered.  About the only difference between a Congressional ‘play” and a stage play is that the minority is allowed some speaking roles.


So when the curtain goes up on each day’s impeachment hearing, do not expect anything but an entertainment play designed for high ratings and with a pre-ordained conclusion.  A show trial, produced like a play, masquerading as an impartial investigation.

Adam Schiff was supposed to be in his element pretending to be a character from The West Wing.  The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee reminded us why he never made it as a screenwriter.  With a few exceptions — the miniature speech from counsel about "quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, abuse of power of the office of the presidency" — he allowed his members to get bogged down in the details of a narrative that almost no one in the room has mastered.  It is difficult to argue that the president is guilty of a hideous crime because he seems to have considered withholding aid that Barack Obama was never willing to offer in the first place.

In the Future, Everyone Will Run for President for 15 Minutes.


Just like an announcer informing the crowd the left-handed reliever is coming to the mound, Deval Patrick announced he's running for president as a mid-season replacement candidate to save the game for the Dem's.  You, I and most everyone else have no idea who he is, but that's not stopping him. He has no compelling or distinguishable platform, but hey, no campaign is perfect. Patrick sees an opening and he's going for it.

Our extensive research has revealed Patrick was once governor of Massachusetts. He's the only black person to serve in that role,  until squad member Ayanna Pressley wins someday.  He's affirmative action Harvard Law and was assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice under Willie Clinton. He's no small-town mayor, but he's got chops.

A close friend of Barky Obama, he has told advisers that he envisions a campaign similar to Obama's.  Barky's "inner circle" had urged Patrick to run as far back as 2017, but he declined because of what he called the "cruelty of our elections process." The current primary is apparently all hugs and puppies, so Patrick figures he'll show up late to the party after a few other candidates have already passed out in the bathtub.

Patrick is currently a managing director at the investment firm Bain Capital. Yeah, that Bain Capital. Oh that should start class-warfare-waging Sen. Lizzy to shakin'.  Patrick has missed the filing deadlines for the Alabama and Arkansas primaries where he would have probable gotten......oh maybe 6-7 votes tops, but he plans to focus on New Hampshire, South Carolina, and some other early states where he can embarrass himself.

Adam Schiff's Circus Comes Complete With Drag Queen


MRC - Spotted towering over the gray and blue suits packed into the first day of President Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing was an enormous blond wig — that of Pissi Myles, a drag performer from Asbury Park, New Jersey.  Pissi Myles, as he likes to call himself (please Lord, we hope that doesn’t mean what we think it means), apparently fancies himself a journalist with a valid interest in covering impeachment politics. 

Pissi, a clearly overweight male, was wearing an offensively red, way-too-short dress, sparkly red heels, and a curly blonde wig so ostentatious that Honey Boo Boo would have fainted on sight.  It’s a nice reminder of just how much of a circus the Dems’ attempt at removing Trump is, with freaks like Pissi Myles being the enthusiastic rent-a-clowns. It says a lot about the Democratic party when drag queens have become their shock troopers.

NBCNews.com reported on the attendance of “the award-winning drag performer,” composing a headline that would have made the founding fathers seriously contemplate abandoning their American experiment. Read it and weep: “Drag Queen Sashays into Trump Impeachment Hearing.”

The most outlandish part of it all was that Miss Myles had her reporting rig all set up and ready to go. She was holding her phone with an extension arm, had her headphones in, and was giving viewers an up close and personal account of the morning’s proceedings.

NBCNews asked Miles how his day was going, to which he replied in classic camp fashion, “It’s a crazy day in Washington! I’m flipping my wig over the high-energy proceedings today.” Hmm, wow. Though Pissi was comically aware of the spectacle he generated, adding, “Tensions are high, and the bar for who’s allowed in the Longworth House is very, very low.”

You can say that again.

Looks like the Democratic Establishment Have Been Googling 'Joe Biden'.


There is so many Democrats running for the nomination it's hard to notice when they drop out. It's like raking leaves. They seem to just keep falling out of the trees. Even that crazy woman from the hamlet of Chappaqua NY claims "she is being urged by many, many, many people to run in 2020."  But for now, Joe Biden is the perceived front-runner, and that excites no one, not even his wife. He is the non-threatening choice, known to us on the right as Obama's Court Jester. And according to an article in the New York Times, the "movers and shakers" in the Democrat party are having second thoughts about Uncle Joe.

"Since the last debate, just anecdotally, I've had five or six people ask me: 'Is there anybody else?'" said Leah Daughtry, a longtime Democrat who has run two of the party's recent conventions."
The "anxious" Democratic establishment reportedly think Lizzy Warren isn't "viable" in a general election because she comes off as a crazy commie college professor. They're probably also more afraid of Bernie winning than losing. It bothers them that Mayor Pete is leading in Iowa, and that the dem's plantation black voters aren't high on voting for a little white fudgepacker, especially one from a mostly white state in the midwest. They've found Biden's debate performances "lackluster" and they haven't even seen his latest town hall. 

Former Senator and Secretary of State John Kerry (he fought in Vietnam you know) has "wondered aloud" if he should've run again. He must've "wondered aloud" in an empty room because if he'd "wondered" this within earshot of anyone alive in 2004, he would've heard a reflexive "hell no."

Eric Holder, the former attorney general, was apparently considering a "last-minute" entry but he admits it's too late now. He's right. There's never a good time for this crooked bastard's presidential campaign. He should be in prison. 

There was talk yesterday of Deval Patrick, the long forgotten former Massachusetts governor, entering the race. He's another answer to a question no one's asked. Spartacus Booker doesn't need an understudy for the role of unqualified, bald brother who loves them some Wall Street money. And someone for some reason known only to them convinced Michael Bloomberg to run for president. He's likely going to spend a lot of money to lose like a common Julio Castro. Unless public humiliation is his jam, he might find it cheaper to just pay Warren's wealth tax and go play golf. 

Obama's boy David Axelrod explained the party's current dilemma:
"With Trump looming, there is genuine concern that the horse many have bet on may be pulling up lame and the horse who has sprinted out front may not be able to win." 
Wait... did Axlrod just call Sen. Lizzy a horse?? Oh My.

The "safe" candidate is not always the best. But the establishment has already taken their chosen candidate out of his original packaging. They can't return him now. Pass the popcorn.......

Kurt Schlichter's Brutal Poke at Newest Occupant of the Democrat Clown Car

President Donald J. Trump and Former NYC Mayor Whistle-Britches Bloomberg 

Don’t Laugh Too Hard at Bloomberg or 
He Might Not Run

Name the Democrat who is super-excited to have Michael Bloomberg barge into the Dem primaries like some nutty ex-girlfriend who gave you crabs popping in at your wedding.  Where is the groundswell of support behind this pint-sized presidential aspirant?  Perhaps the Democratic consultants who didn’t sign up with one of the other goofy candidates are happy.  The micro-zillionaire may not have charisma or a vision or actual human support, but he’s got endless bucks to squander on electoral parasites.

So, those jerks will love him getting in.  And so will us Republicans – Trump already has a nickname laid upon the numismatic gnome, “Little Michael.” 

Electing him president would be like electing your kindergarten teacher POTUS, if your kindergarten teacher was tiny, 77, and jetted away in her Gulfstream after lecturing you on how you can’t have chocolate because of global warming.  

This futile fiasco is not driven by anything but the malignant midget’s vanity, and not a little jealousy that Donald Trump, the unpolished Al Cervik, is dominating the Bushwood Country Club of American politics while Little Michael Smails is looking like a buffoon trying on awful hats in its pro shop.

Now, we’re already hearing lots of superficial and staggeringly dumb comparisons to Donald Trump.  Yeah, they are both New York billionaires, but Trump is from Queens, and that matters.  Can you imagine the soul-smashing agony Little Michael feels every day seeing Trump get played “Hail to The Chief” while all he gets is a couple of hobos whistlin’ “Short People?”. -- KEEP READING

Lizzy Gets in a Tizzy at Injustice Forum

Despite her own dubious past with cultural appropriation, Sen. Lizzy Warren loves to talk about racial injustice. She’ll accuse virtually anyone on either side of the aisle of sketchy racial motivations – or of supporting agendas that are racist – if it benefits her political aspirations.  However, it’s clear that Warren would rather not face any questions about racial inequality when the subject matter hits too close to her tepee.

Meet Amy Goodwin. She’s the hardcore left-wing host of "Democracy Now!" a modern day underground railroad of leftist rumor and propaganda heard on public radio around the country.  In some soft skull leftist presidential forum done for the interwebs, she expressed her concern about how white Iowa and New Hampshire are. Ms. Goodwin seems to think that, since their populations are heavily Caucasian, their “first in the nation” primary status should be revoked in favor of more diverse states. She posed the question to Lizzy:
"Speaking of racial injustice, do you think the order of the primary states should change?"
Lizzy quickly waved off the question. It’s clear from her answer that she didn’t want to discuss it, but watch the clip below. The really interesting moment comes as the interview quickly ends and Warren walks off the stage. Goodman says ‘thank you’ and Warren responds with a terse, sarcastic, “Yeah.”

Remember, Democrats. Don’t do to Warren what she does to everyone else. She doesn’t care for it. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

Showdown in Tuscaloosa - Saturday Down South: Week 11


Saturday afternoon the Associated Press No.1 & No.2 ranked teams, LSU and Alabama, meet in Tuscaloosa for the much hyped and anticipated SEC West showdown. Coincidentally, the last time the AP top two team met in regular season play........was LSU and Alabama in 2011.  It was the two of the best defenses in the nation that battled to a final 9-6 score in overtime. Those were the days of the ground-and-pound run game, bubble screens and end arounds.

That was then. Now, the two undefeated will meet with powerful offenses averaging over 500 yards a game. Both are Quarterbacked by Heisman Trophy Candidates that dominate all the CFB passing game categories, save one, and who routinely shred opposing defenses with ease. Both possess elite receivers. Both possess elite pass defenders. They both possess runners who can break open a big play. You need not be much of a football expert to deduce what kind of game this could be to watch. Hell, the President is even flying in to see this one in person!

Needless to say, a lot is riding on this game. A win all but secures the opportunity for the victor to go to Atlanta and kick around the Dawgs of Leghumper U. in the SEC Championship Game, and secure a CFB playoff berth.  But also riding on the game is an all-you-can-eat spicy Popeye's Chicken bet between our much beloved Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy and Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby.  But more importantly, there's the traditional friendly bet on the game between Moi and my SEC Sister and Alabama booster, Curmudgeon of Political Clown Parade, which results in a healthy contribution given to one of our favorite Charities, The Shriners Hospital For Children. (and be sure and check out Curmudgeon's always excellent game post).

The hype and build up to the game all this week has been over the top and impossible to listen to. The game has been dissected, X and O'd and predicted to death by the expert sports monkeys in their accentuated bloviating verbosity.  It's now time to get to it.  Defeating the Crimson Tide has been the insurmountable achievement for the LSU Tigers for the last seven seasons. Coach O' has built the team he promised, and now the chance presents itself to prove the naysayers wrong once and for all by showing that he WAS the right man for the job. I for one have no doubt.

The saying goes "The road to the SEC Championship goes through Tuscaloosa."

SO BE IT!
GEAUX TIGAHS!

Noted Squad Member Throws Her Weave Into the Ring for VP


A day after Tank Abrams said she's available to be anyone's VP because racist won't let her run Georgia, and weeks after the anti-Semitic squad members Reps. Iham Omar, Alexandria Ocashew-Cortex and Rashy Tablet all endorsed an old white Jewish commie Bernie Sanders, squad member and fake hair weave enthusiast Ayanna Pressley ended the suspense and officially threw her endorsement to Senator Lizzy Warren for president.

Warren, Sanders, and Joe Biden all reportedly sought Pressley's endorsement, but Ms. High Horse was won over by Warren's plan-making kung fu. Warren's opponents have taken to mocking her plans, which is admittedly easier than coming up with different ones. Black supporters of Pressley were so disappointed in her choice of endorsing a privileged White Woman, some took Twitter to ask Pressley if she knew Warren stole all her ideas from Kamala Harris or that Warren was once a Republican and used to eat black babies at Federalist Society potlucks.

But as Pressley points out, Warren's "plans are about power: who has it, who refuses to let it go and who deserves more of it."  In other words POWER TO THE CORRECT PEOPLE!!!!

Pressley believes "big structural change" can't wait until Republicans decide to play nice or stop nominating corrupt racist demagogues. And y'all remember when Pressley read Trump his ass on the House floor before they'd even finished painting her office? Good Times.

You know throwing her weaves into the ring by endorsing Warren is really about consideration for Lizzy's VP, or at least a juicy high level cabinet post like 'Secretary of Population Re-education' or 'Administrator General of Slave Reparations'.

We all know Epstein didn't kill himself and there has to be a POC on the 2020 Dem ticket, or there will be an epic revolt, and the party will come apart at the seams.

Tulsi Gabbard Appears on “The View” and Gracefully Puts Foot Up Joy Behar's......

When Democrat presidential candidate and US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard appeared on The View earlier this year, Boobs McCain accused her of being an “Assad apologist” who is “spouting propaganda from Syria.” Then after Hillary Clinton insinuated that the Russians were “grooming” Gabbard to run on a third-party ticket to split the dems vote and help reelect DJT, Joy Behar called her a “useful idiot.”

Gabbard, who as of now is still running as a Democrat, returned to The View for the third time and immediately confronted the hosts for accusing her of “being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse or a useful idiot.  Over two segments, Behar and Gabbard went at it over everything from her endorsements from white nationalists to an even bigger sin - appearing on Fox News. Watching Behar's TDS aging mug as she gets put in her place is worth the watch. 

In the end,  McCain thanked Gabbard for not threatening to take away her guns.
“I will,” Behar told her. “I’ll take them.”

I think this is one of the best examples of psychosis that has taken over the mouth pieces of the left.  Not towing the progressive line 100% makes you a target and outlaw, to be smeared and degraded. It's the Democrat Way....

Tater Tries His Hand at Hard Hitting Investigative Journalism


CNN’s media “hall monitor” Brian Stelter, devoted an entire segment on Sunday’s edition of the ironically name Reliable Sources, to obsessing over DJT's spelling mistakes on the Tweeter. While he did concede that “everybody makes spelling mistakes,” Stelter seemed to think that the President’s Twitter typos deserve double extra special scrutiny, implying that Trump's spelling habits have an impact on his ability to run the country effectively.

Tater spent the segment making the case that “Donald Trump makes a lot more spelling errors" than “most people.” The media critic complained that he had “never seen anyone do a comprehensive study of DJT's spelling errors or look at what they mean” before plugging an “excellent website” called Factbase that "has every single word the President says” and “looks at all of Trump’s tweets, even the deleted ones, for...typos and other screw-ups.”

According to Factbase, Trump has made “more than 188 spelling errors on Twitter” since taking office in early 2017. Stelter went on to highlight some specific examples of Trump’s Twitter typos, to then focusing on the data surrounding President Trump’s spelling errors and stacked the President up against Democrat politicians.  Bernie Sanders is said to have made only three mistakes, while Barky Obama of course has a spotless spelling record when it comes to his Twitter account.  Tater conveniently leaves out that Sanders nor Chicago Jesus are believed to actually posted their own tweets.

Stelter brought on an employee from Factbase, Bill Fischling, who advised President Trump to “turn on autocorrect.” Apparently, Fischling forgot that autocorrect doesn't always work like it should, and in some cases, the program can create errors rather than fix them.

This brings up two important questions. Why does there even exist and who funds a website devoted to tracking anyone's misspelled words on the tweeter?  And why is this effeminate, bulbous headed Telatubby looking excuse for a journalist on my TV.

The Commander and Chief Orders New Pants

Of all the 45 million pages of documents and hundreds of hours of historic conversations recorded during the years of the Presidency of LBJ archived in his Presidential Library in Austin Texas, one audio clip has become a classic among presidential archive fans and one of the most listened to in the library.


On August 9, 1964, at the height of a re-election campagin, President Lyndon Baines Johnson decided that he needed some new pants, so he got on the horn and called the Haggar Clothing Co. based in Dallas, Texas, and ordered himself up a new set. After a short interruption of another call, LBJ continues in his colorful, home-spun style and in vivid language to explain his need for special consideration of certain anatomical areas, and hilariously belches right in the middle.

Here’s a worthwhile animation of the call by Tawd Dorenfeld.

Step Off Kamala. You're Stinking Up The Clown Car


It looks like we've reached the "can we pull this bitch outta the fire" stage of the nasally Voodoo Witch's run for president. Stories out during the week described a cratering Harris campaign slashing staff and cutting salaries like the final days of Blockbuster.  Her contributions slowing and poll numbers in free fall, she's polling just slightly ahead of Tree Fungus and Spartacus Booker.  No one has ever accused her of being an awesome Senator or even a likable person. And the angry black woman in Manolo Blahnik shoes act is not playing well in middle America, black or white. 

Still, Harris is putting the whole tamale into Iowa.  She plans to spend Thanksgiving there. Barky Obama might've inadvertently set a precedent that black candidates must win the Iowa caucus to prove white people will vote for them. But her problem is not that she's black, she's not.  It's that she's from f**ing California and has overly championed LGBTQ and illegals, both problem issues for black primary voters, and most swing state voters.  She actually thought she could appeal to clueless suburban soccer moms at the same time fanning the flames of racial resentment with talk of reparations and pretending to be down with the struggle. 

She's been on a roll lately, showing a true lack of leadership and personal pettiness when she boycotted a criminal justice reform forum at Benedict College after she learned the organizers gave an award to DJT.  She also vocally defended Katie Hill, treating her as the victim of revenge porn and not just the kooky star in a sex farce.  She was the only Democratic presidential candidate to have Hill's back.  And yes, she got her Kamala on while questioning during some of the worst SOTUS confirmation hearings ever, but due to her junior status, her questions came near the end when most people stopped paying attention.

I'm sure her lack of electablity has nothing to do with the Creepy Voodoo Witch persona she sometimes projects.  Maybe it just hasn't hit her yet that most American people don’t care for her proposed commie policies, taking away the American's health care provider choices, guns and wealth, making the nation into a third-world socialist state based on coercion, state sponsored theft, abrogation of the Constitution, hate and fear.   But Kamala believes the only reasons she’s losing (even in her liberal home state) is because the country isn’t ready for a black female President. That’s not true. We had 8 years of Obama.

Beto Packs It In. The Raging Beta Boy Says He's Done

The Psychedelic Warrior has dropped out of the 2020 presidential race after a disappointing campaign that failed to build momentum. Twice Three times.

 Señor Beto wanted to be the all-white Obama, but he just didn't have it. Obama's one and only talent was lying with a straight face, telling enormous whoppers smoothly enough to fool enough people enough of the time. Beto is just off-putting.

Beto spent like half his waking hours hopping on the countertops of coffee shops across Iowa, but to no avail. Saying "I am a nice safe white man. But not gay. Unless being gay would get me votes. I could be gay. Please vote for me...Please??" And then there was that whole I'm coming for your guns thing. Brilliant!  


From Beto's Debate Journal:
"Tonight, I am a dancing bear, to be jeered at by a fickle press corps who surrendered their hearts to me in Texas, only to decide I wasn't good enough to bring home to mom and dad, that I wasn't "‘long-term" material, that they always saw our relationship as "more of a side chick situation." I'm starting to think they only shacked up with me to get back at Ted. Just look at them, sitting there all smug, talking trash behind my back to all their friends. Assholes."
Goodbye Beto. *snork*

Democrats Dress-Up Their Farce As An Impeachment Vote


Democrats claim they’re voting on an “impeachment resolution” today, even though nobody knows what an impeachment resolution is. Don’t be confused, this is not an impeachment vote, it’s something else apparently. This vote is just like the kid who is going to knock on your door this evening, it is wearing a mask and costume and claiming it is something it’s not.

This vote is merely the Democrats testing to see whether or not they have a deranged enough base to continue the farce of impeachment. The entire impeachment inquiry is the establishment in Washington D.C. letting the American people know that if they ever vote for someone the establishment doesn’t like, they will just beat you over the head, stop the agenda you voted for, and ultimately, usurp your vote to show you who really runs this country.

For Your Holiday Gift List: THE ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ 2020 CALENDAR

You tell me.  Is America great or what?  Where else could an intelligence-challenged, oppressed brown female who one day is slinging Budweiser and cheap whisky in a dive bar in NY, and the next has her own celebrity BBF calendar?  If you are a masochist who wants to look at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez every day of the year and read her insipid musings, do I have great news for you.  There is an AOC calendar for sale, which thankfully features zero swimsuit or boudoir shots.  But you do get 12 months of her donkey teeth and airhead quotes.


Amazon is selling the My BFF, AOC: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 2020 Wall Calendar for the low, low pice of $14.98, though you can pick up used ones for around $10.  Trust me, the irony is not lost here that AOC ran Amazon out of New York and they are now selling her silly calendar.

Let’s see what this fabulous price gets us:
Not only do we look up to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “AOC”, but we also wish we were best friends with her as well. This yearlong celebration of the powerhouse that is the youngest woman ever to serve in the United States Congress includes 12 images of her everyday fierceness, uplifting quotes and funny remarks inspired by and about our best friend.
If AOC was my best friend, I think I’d end it all.
Featuring quotes on AOC’s views on everything from justice, responsibility, and equality, as well as celebratory commentary about why we love her, this first of its kind wall calendar is a true celebration of the woman, the myth, and the meme that is everyone’s BFF, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Printed on recycled paper, and with proceeds going to a NY-based charitable organization, it furthers the congresswoman’s mission toward making positive change.  Even though it’s printed on recycled paper, it’s still somehow a waste of paper. Only AOC could pull off this feat.

Let’s check out some of these action shots and pearls of wisdom:

In February the caption reads:
“My bestie knows the difference between weather and climate.”
That’s odd because AOC literally blames every hurricane, flood, and tornado on global warming. In fact she’s blaming the California wildfires on climate change right now:

The quote for February:
“Women like me aren’t supposed to run for office.”
Technically she’s right. Stupid people like her shouldn’t hold elected office or have any sort of power and responsibility.

In May AOC tells us: “I want to speak to people directly as much as possible” with a picture of her being separated from people by a barricade.

October has to be my favorite from this calendar. “My BFF doesn’t pussy-foot around,” reads the caption under a picture of AOC literally dressed up like a cat. And here’s quite possibly the funniest customer review from someone named “mac girl.”
“I bought this pop-star icon calendar for my 11 year old niece. I never heard of AOC, but thought the niece would love AOC in kitty ears on stage. But when my niece opened the gift she burst into tears and screamed, “AOC IS A FRAUD!” then ran to her room and slammed the door. “SHE’S NOT MY BFF!” the kid wailed from her bedroom. I searched on line for AOC’s music, but to no avail. No idea why this icon-singer worthy of her own calendar elicits so much emotion from an 11 year old? Oh well. On to the P-Cat-Dolls calendar…. this AOC one will go into the “White Elephant Gift” pile at work.”
It’s hard to tell if that is a joke or not, but either way it slays. I actually think the calendar is going to do well. I don’t think it will sell a lot of copies, but the close-outs can be given to the homeless of NY who would have otherwise been employed by Amazon so they can burn them for heat.

Wonder what's next for the Chiquita Marxist? Maybe a Puerto Rican Rap album.

Well Look At You! Lil' Greta Gets a High Honor


Greta Gets Her Bug On

Scientists have named a newly identified species of bug after teen climate alarmist Greta Thunberg. Seems appropriate.

Dubbed Nelloptodes gretae, the bug and Greta share many of the same attributes: both are tiny, both have protrusions from the head, the bug has no wings and Greta refuses to fly, the bug is blind and Greta is blinded to the truth.

Michael Darby, a researcher from the Natural History Museum in London, who described the new beetle in the journal Entomologist's Monthly Magazine, said he settled on the name as a way to pay tribute to Thunberg, who began skipping school on Fridays to protest outside Swedish parliament last year.

For scientists, naming a newly discovered species after themselves is simply not done, which means they need to be a bit more creative. And some have a wicked sense of humor. This is how we now have a parasite named after Bob Marley, Gnathia marleyi, a spider called Spintharus leonardodicaprioi. Even a humorously named golden-haired fly named after Beyonce - Scaptia beyonceae.

Of course, in Kenya they’ve been aware of this bug for thousands of years, and probably have a name for it, but that doesn’t count for anything. Because science is all about White Supremacy.

“Woke” Squad Decrying Sex Bias in Dead-Animal Studies


I hereby proclaim, by no other authority but my own, that 'Wokeness' will be from this day forward officially deemed and refered to as a mental illness. I present the latest evidence for your consideration:

According to researchers at the Natural History Museum in London, the world’s top natural history museums in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., London, and Paris, are misogynistic because their animal exhibits contain more males than females. They found a slight bias towards males in birds (40% females) and mammals (48% females),” according to a research report. The report warns that scientists must be vigilant about rooting out “undetected male bias” when conducting research on dead animals. 

The lead author of the study was a female: Natalie Cooper, a researcher at London’s Natural History Museum. The research team was comprised of two women and four men. In other words, the group contained 67% men and only 33% women. It’s unclear why a “woke” squad decrying sex bias in dead-animal studies was not more vigilant about ensuring against sexism in their own work. Hello!

Cooper concedes that the males of many animal species are “larger and more colorful” than females and that could be a major reason for the slight male-to-female skewing in the animal exhibits. Uh. Ya Think!  However, Cooper insists that sex bias abounds in the field of dead-animal research, and this sexism must end.

I rest my case.

Pete Souza Steps on Rake. Rake Wins

Pete Souza, the former White House photographer for Barky Obama, has made it no secret that he dislikes DJT and has taken shots at him in the past. In haste to remain relevant and one of the cool guys, he sent out a tweet that went everywhere quickly, suggesting that the picture showed Trump wasn’t in the White House when the action taken against Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi took place.

Of course, Souza was wrong. Trump was back in the White House before the raid and before the picture was taken. 
It has 15,000 retweets and over 38,000 likes as of this writing. But as with most fake news, you can see it got much less attention than the original false story. And people are still spreading the lie. And most of the blue checks still have the false story up and haven’t taken it down, much less apologized for spreading the insanity. Media and Democrats immediately cried conspiracy, as Twitchy notes, spreading it further.

Saturday Down South Week #9: There's Only Room For One Kat Round Here!


6-1 Auburn Tigers @ 7-0 LSU  2:30PM CT - CBS

Week 9 of the college football season is upon us, and it brings a couple of crucial games in not only the SEC, but up there in the big10. Saturday night The Gus Bus Rolls into Baton Rouge for another date at 'The Place Where Dreams Come To Die'. The Auburn Tigers have not beaten LSU at home since 1999.  They come in Saturday ranked #9 after murdering the Hogs in Fayetteville last week.

Over the years some of the most memorable games ever played in Tiger Stadium were between LSU and Auburn. This game has implication for not only the SEC West Crown, but also CFB playoffs considerations.  A win by LSU would be its 3rd over a top 10 opponent and set up a showdown of #1 vs #2 with Alabama on Nov. 9. 

As expected, the Auburn defense has been solid most all year. Their key to winning is to disrupt Joe Burrows timing and making him uncomfortable. No one's been able to do that enough to affect his game so far. Auburn’s has the DC and horses up front to do it. And with Gus calling the offense from the sideline, anything can happen. 

Bo Nix has turned out to be a talented but unpredictable true freshman quarterback. We'll see how well he handles his first trip into the hostility of Tiger Stadium.  LSU has to disrupt Auburn's running game, the best in the SEC @ 239.6 yds a game. The Gus Bus can't keep pace without it, because even he knows you can't throw the ball in the Tiger's house. This is a game that could swing on a turn over or a bad call. Let's hope the Refs bring their seeing-eye Dogs...... 

The Football Gods have not looked kindly upon the Auburn Tigers when they travel to Death Valley. Auburn has come into Tiger Stadium ranked in the Top 10 four times. They are 0-4 in those trips. Saturday night it will be 0-5.
I say LSU by 9  

H/T to Saturday Down South for 20 reasons it's better to be an LSU fan than an Auburn fan. 

Elsewhere This Saturday


Arkansas (2-5) @ Alabama(7-0) - 6PM CT ESPN
A Tua-less No. 1 Bama gets a break considering their schedule and gets some time for Tua's backup to get some needed game reps against the anemic Hogs, and then a week to prepare for LSU in two weeks if needed. With nothing to lose, expect the Hogs to bring the house early and often against the Bama QB. And look for Tagovailoa #2 to play if necessary to win. Let's hope Tua heals in time for the Tigers visit to Tuscaloosa.

The Tide Rolls.
Bama by 17+ 


Wisconsin @ Ohio St. - 11AM CT - FOX 
UPSET! Badgers slows down the Bucknutt's offense and pulls out a win in Columbus by a field goal.

Vagina Museum Applies For Liquor License


Note to Reader: There are so many possible jokes packed in that title, and caused me to contemplate deleting this post before publication. But your esteemed Editrix would have felt remiss at passing up a opportunity to relieve my most excellent readers of the drudgery of reading more of the politics of the day, and of politicians who act like another part of the human anatomy we all have. That said, I apologize in advance for this post....
_____________________________

You know what that Vagina Museum needs? An alcohol license.  But which vagina museum, you ask?

That would be the Vagina Museum set to open November 16th at London’s Camden Market, specifically. The grand showcase of unshowables is on a mission to spread the word on "gynecological anatomy and health." And to get you liquored up, I guess, at that wondrous place, the "world’s first bricks and mortar museum dedicated to vaginas."

But some people are concerned about its petition for a alcohol license far more than being known for actually having a Vagina Museum in their neighborhood.
"We have no doubt that the museum will try to ensure that no inappropriate parties will be allowed, but stag parties are not known for their respectfulness and hen parties can also be raucous and difficult to control."
Yeah, Drunken Hen Parties!! 
"If parties become rowdy, they will be removed by security and then end up on our streets, creating public nuisance."
And what if those stags and hens collide? Treachery could ensue says the chair of the Tenants Residents Associations, Camden Town. She expressed worry that the museum is "actively seeking" hen and stag nights.

Nevertheless, on Thursday, the erected salute to unmentionables was granted its license. Originally, the museum had applied to sell booze Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to midnight. That was so, I suppose, you could say to your buddy, "Hey, it’s 11:00 at night. Let’s go down to the Vagina Museum and grab a beer."

Also granted: the ability to show films between 10 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Monday thru Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Films. What kind of .....oh never mind.  There was just one condition imposed by the licensing panel: No more than 100 people may be inside the Vagina Museum at any one time. So go the rules and regulations of an esteemed community ornament.

So if you are in Jolly Ole London on or about November 16th, the line-up for the gallery’s opening exhibit will be "Muff Busters: Vagina Myths And How To Fight Them." And be sure to stop off at the bar.

Troll Level 11 : Trump Campaign Scoops Up Biden's Latino Voter Outreach Web Address & Tweeter


ABC - It didn't take long for the Trump campaign to figure out how to troll Joe Biden moments after the former vice president's campaign announced a Latino voter outreach program on Wednesday.  Biden, who spent the day campaigning across Pennsylvania and Iowa, announced "Todos Con Biden," a "national network of Latino supporters" working to help elect the former vice president.  But there's one problem.

The Biden campaign failed to purchase www.todosconbiden.com, or even lock down the @TodosConBiden Twitter handle before announcing the new effort -- prompting the president's reelection team to do what it does best: troll.  Now, the Trump campaign is using www.todosconbiden.com to mock the former vice president, with a landing page that says in both English and Spanish, "Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos."

The page also links out to the president's own Latino outreach coalition "Latinos for Trump." And the @TodosConBiden Twitter account, in the possession of the Trump campaign, has already begun posting unflattering but true video and counter messaging.

The reelection team told ABC News they bought the URL for a "minimal cost" after the Trump campaign's coalition team noticed the URL for the new effort was still up for grabs.  "The Biden campaign continues to be inept with a deeply flawed candidate," Deputy Communications Director Erin Perrine told ABC News.  In response, the Biden campaign said the move by the Trump campaign was "no surprise."

And it's not just the Trump campaign who sees a gaffe like this as a broader issue for Biden, who himself has been prone to missteps over his decades-long career.  "How the hell are you Joe Biden's campaign and you don't lock up the URL before you announce stuff?" Mike Madrid, a veteran Republican political consultant who's a vocal critic of the president told ABC News.

On top of trolling Biden, the Trump campaign is using this opportunity to tout the president's record with Latino Americans, such as record low unemployment.  In the 2016 election, Trump took 29% of the Latino vote, topping Romney, who took 27% of the Latino vote in 2012.  Hispanics are projected to become the largest minority group in the electorate in 2020, with 18.3%, surpassing African Americans.

Options Running Out, Some Dems Consider Self-immolation


They don’t really like the old white guy with dementia, the Indian princess, and gay Alfred E.Newman. But what about the commie with the heart condition, the chick who slept her way into politics, or New Jersey Spartacus? I think we all see the problem democrats are having with this motley collection of unlikeable unelectable losers, but maybe this is something they should have worked out before now. 

Allies have passed around an op-ed that appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, written by former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown with the headline, "Who should run against Trump? How about Hillary Clinton?"

Supporters say she has been glued to the Democratic primary contest and has spoken with some frequency with Warren and Biden, among others. Now selling a book written with her daughter, Chelsea, she has been a constant public presence of late, engaging in a days-long spat with Tulsi Gabbard, and repeatedly trolling Trump on his favorite communications platform, Twitter.

A late entrance under any circumstances would be difficult, with Clinton's former aides and fundraising network dispersed among many current campaigns. But her supporters have discussed whether she could helm a slimmed-down campaign operation and whether she would be able to maintain the less cautious, more freewheeling persona she has adopted since her loss in 2016.

I think the problem is that there were some plausible but look-alike and unglitzy governors in the mix but they're already dropped out. The process is such that the better-known Senators blocked the view (along with a few flashy extra clowns, Beto, Buttigieg, Williamson, Yang). There's only so much attention we can pay and only so much money. Now,  just as people with lives should be starting to care about an election that's over a year away, it still looks like a crowd, but there's no one in that crowd who seems able to beat DJT.

Trump! The guy who, if you watch the media, is about to be tossed out on his ass by Congress. Congress...... which can't even deliver up one candidate good enough to beat the guy in the normal process. But it's too late now to get a governor. Those characters went down long ago. So the party hacks look around in desperation, and of course, she's there — Ma Clinton.

The Inordinate Amount of Attention That's Paid to the Least-Intelligent and Relevant Among Us.

By Our Ol' Comrade Matthew @My Planet, My Rules

Americans were always known for thinking Big Ideas and then going out and doing Big Things, and very often these Big Thoughts and Deeds were indicative of a culture that was serious, concerned, vibrant, dynamic, smart, motivated by a desire to do good. Examples abound.  Americans have always sacrificed something of themselves (often, all of themselves) for the benefit of others. Our Founders defied an authority that could have had them executed in the quest for Freedom for the individual. We have shed blood by the gallon on battlefields, most often for the benefit of others and for little other reason than because it was the right thing to do.

And so it is a great sin, a tragedy of our time, that at least some of the inheritors of these sacrifices, people have often done nothing in the slightest to validate or respect that noble bloodshed, nor earn the dividends it produced, should be given a public platform to do little more than to advertise their careless ingratitude and deliberately-cultured ignorance.

There are three varieties of these clueless, walking mouthpieces who have elbowed their way to a Prominence of Fucktard polluting our culture: the least-important (but loudest) is a new generation of leftist politician, usually the progeny of immigrants from all the waste places of the Earth, who befoul our public spaces with their unceasing whining about how hard it is to be them and how America could be made better by turning it into the Sudan or Venezuela (see: The Squad).

The second is a parade of even more-useless mouths who's primary (and largely unnecessary) function is the entertainment of the lowbrow, with names like DeNiro, Baldwin, Swift, or DiCaprio.

The last is a generation of "branded" (in the commercial sense) athletes who do things every society can easily do without, like catching touchdown passes, hitting home runs, or dunking basketballs.

The one common thread among all of these useless mouths is that they occupy a position -- socially, economically, culturally -- that is directly a result of the sacrifices of others, but disproportionate to their own, quantifiable contribution. The American Athlete, once great figures that stood for something, whether it was just the "integrity of the game", the idea that in America every little kid could be a slugger or World Champ, or something more-important, like a struggle for equality and freedom, has become, like the actor or the television "personality", not just a tragic figure, but a comic one. Because they have, just as their counterparts in politics and entertainment have, been given this stupid idea that anyone really cares what they think, do or believe when they aren't sweating in shorts for 20 or so minutes a night.

It's not as if we're talking about some of the real heroes in sports of my youth, here. The Lebron James' of the world did not have to struggle, and in the process, advance the character and quality of American Life by their example, like some of my childhood heroes did. Lebron James is no Hank Aaron, suffering death threats for being good enough to threaten a cherished record, or being a -- maybe THE -- visible symbol of the pernicious, past influence of racism.

James wouldn't be judged worthy to hold Muhammad Ali's jockstrap, on his best day. He certainly couldn't make you think about a common humanity, couldn't be a universal symbol of hope, like Ali did and was.

Jim Brown would run Lebron James over and trample him into the dirt, demanding respect. Just respect. James will never have the grace, the quiet dignity, or garner the universal love, of a Gayle Sayers.

In fact, James is most likely the visible symbol of the moral decay and decadence of the Modern Athlete, and symptomatic of the greater trend in society wherein people who obviously couldn't find their own asses with both hands and a road map consistently have microphones shoved in their faces with an expectation that they will -- as if by magic -- make some profound statement that will occupy the intellect and nourish the soul.

Because "they're famous", and the assumption is that fame carries with it some form of genius, some proof that by virtue of notoriety one vicariously ascends the intellectual and moral ladder until finding oneself upon the virtual Olympus of the Consequential with the likes of Einstein, Shakespeare, Lincoln, Archimedes, MLK, Hawking, Ghandi or Mother Theresa.

And so it was that Lebron James, inheritor of the sacrifices by which he is a free man, by which he has become the first "Billion Dollar Athlete", through which millions of young children dream of one day imitating his exploits on a basketball court, was somehow asked to make a comment regarding pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, the NBA's response to them, and his personal views on the entire smorgasbord of self-interested douchebag that surrounds the entire production.

James insists he stands with the forces of righteousness. Until, of course, the circumstances of righteousness demanded that he make a sacrifice. With his wallet. And then he puked up a self-serving statement -- which cast him and the other NBA players as something of victims in this whole thing! -- and...came out against righteousness. Which makes everything he's ever said on the subject of freedom and equality in other contexts completely invalid.

Society can survive without what you do, Lebron. It survived before Naismith invented your retarded game; it will continue without it. You add nothing to the fabric of life by tossing a ball through a hoop, and serve about as much use as a flea does to a dog. In fact, one could make the argument (I certainly am) that when it comes to parasites, NBA players are at the top of the list. 

What you do is not important. Therefore, neither are you.
