Media Manufactured Outrage of the Day: Stimulus Check Recipients Receive Letter from DJT


Please tell me, if you can, what is objectionable about the president of the United States sending the following letter to people along with their stimulus checks. Here's the complete text of the letter:
My Fellow Americans, 
Our great country is experiencing an unprecedented public health and economic challenge as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. Our top priority is your health and safety. As we wage total war on this invisible enemy, we are also working around the clock to protect hardworking Americans like you from the consequences of the economic shutdown. We are fully committed to ensure that you and your family have the support you need to get through this time. 
On March 27, 2020, Congress passed with overwhelming bipartisan support the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which I promptly signed into law. I want to thank the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate for working so quickly with my Administration to fast-track this $2.2 trillion in much-needed economic relief to the American people. 
This includes fast and direct economic assistance to you. 
I am pleased to notify you that as provided by the CARES Act, you are receiving an Economic Impact Payment of $______ by Direct Deposit. We hope this payment provides meaningful support to you during this period. 
Every citizen should take tremendous pride in the selflessness, courage and compassion of our people. America’s drive, determination, innovation and sheer willpower have conquered every previous challenge – and they will conquer this one too. Just as we have before, Americans will triumph yet again – and rise to new heights of greatness. We will do it together, as one nation, stronger than ever before. 
President Donald J. Trump
That’s it.

Apparently you either get the letter with your check or you receive it in the mail separate from your direct deposit if you’re getting the money that way. It’s hard to imagine a more innocuous, nonpolitical letter. And yet, you know the media.....

USA Today breathlessly informs us that “Donald Trump letter to stimulus check recipients stirs objections”
At the bottom of the page – in bold, one-inch-high characters – the letter is signed “Donald J. Trump.” 
A former taxpayer advocate at the Internal Revenue Service called the letter “unbelievable” and said it makes the agency “look like it is the handmaiden of one administration and one party.” 
“This will harm the IRS and its ability to appear nonpolitical and nonpartisan,” said Nina Olson, executive director of the Center for Taxpayer Rights. “If I were there, I would be strongly advocating against this.”
What? There is no mention in the letter of any party. There is credit given to a bipartisan group in Congress that passed the bill. There is thanks given to the Senate (Republican-controlled) and the House (Democrat-controlled). It’s hard to imagine a less political letter.

Whether the media like it or not, DJT is the sitting president, and as such it’s part of his job to communicate with the public. Pretending there’s something controversial about this letter is the media’s way of trying to de-legitimize any interaction between Trump and the public, and indeed, the very idea that he has any business speaking to us.

And you can detect the bias in this whole thing, before the story was even written, in the fact that they went out and sought a comment about the appropriateness of the letter. Had it been Barky Obama's letter, they'd be praising him for his leadership, compassion and caring for each and every individual citizen.

But as the media often demonstrates, they’ve learned nothing.

Democrat Rep. Opening Up Selected Businesses is Racist

Today's episode of Democrat Moonbattery:

Just when you think you have heard it all, lo'and behold along comes a whirlwind of stupid and the morons start falling out of the trees. Such was the case at a Biden campaign virtual town hall. I give you a Democrat Member of the US House of Representatives, Marsha Fudge:
I Guess the illustrious Congresswoman is unaware of this ongoing activity?
You simple cannot win with these people.  If black democrats weren’t able to focus through a lens of race for every single thing they discuss, they wouldn’t be able to say anything at all. They perpetuate the hate that consumes the soul. And these are the Biden base supporters he cannot win without.

The Liberal Media Intelligentsia Self Protection Club


If you listened to all the 'Very Smart People' in the Washington press corps over the last few weeks whinging about how this time Trump had crashed and burned once and for all, that he is broken and beyond salvation and his Presidency is all but over, I'm guessing you're not buying and probably think otherwise. And they don't care. They don't have to be right. 

In the game of professional punditry there clearly exists a special set of rules designed for one sort of person: Liberal's parade of bomb-throwing, hate-mongering, race-baiting bottom feeders. That breed which makes their daily bread from grifting the leftist soft skulls by generating an endless flood of books, magazine articles, broadcasts, speeches and videos all telling the soft skull liberal base over and over again that their bigotries are noble and their paranoia is real. Of course, part of the downside of wallowing in the wingnut sewer and trafficking in slander and lies is that, sooner or later, you become a toxic mess.

Your stink becomes unacceptable to the general public, which is where the Sunday morning talk shows -- the Mouse Circus -- comes in. Because despite having long ago devolved into a sinkhole of Beltway twaddle, it is still viewed by altogether too many people as a bastion of Very Serious people. It's the strip-mall of political opinion where casual shoppers go to feel smart and validated.

And so a bargain is struck; the bottom feeders deliver a temporary hike in the only thing these show's owners really care about -- audience share -- and, in exchange for being teevee friendly and keeping the worst of their batshit crazy on a leash for a few minutes, their Mouse Circus deburrs the bottom feeders' public image, replates and burnishes their credibility and temporarily transfuses them with Seriousness, which can then be redeemed at ten times its face value back among the soft skulls.

And in the key to that bargain we will now call "The Biden Rule": an agreement that the moderator will never, ever ask the bomb-thrower, the hate-monger or the race-baiting goon sitting directly across from them a single question about their bomb-throwing, hate-mongering or race-baiting activities. Instead they will be represented to the public merely as a liberal / Never-Trumper commentator or talk radio host or pundit who, at worst, might be known for some "controversial" opinions, which the moderator will never bothers to explicate.

Obvious rapacious hucksters like Al Sharpton find a safe and nurturing environment within the American political media for the same reason that clowns and flakes and demagogues like Never-Tumpers Rick Wilson and Jennifer Rubin, and anti-trump race baiters like MSNBC Nutty Negress Joy Reid and NPR's Yamiche Alcindor prosper within the same media midden pile because they are needed for the media to keep their Sunday freak shows running.

I'd say there's a revolving door between naked political pimping and network punditing, but as the case of the NYT's Paul Krugman amply demonstrates, there is no door at all anymore.  If you pay any attention at all to the Beltway Media Club you will not fail to quickly notice that their highest priority is the mutual defense and protection of fellow Club members.  No matter how many times they publicly shit the bed they can always rely on the likes of Chuck Tard of 'Meet the Press' or 'This Week with Georgie Stephanopoulos', to hose them down, fluff them up and sit them down in front of the camera for their newest rehabilitation session. The Beltway Fixers will always, always, always fish bottom-feeding ghouls out of the gutter, hose them off and put them back in front of a camera.

Lysol Injections and UV Enemas...

"Collective fear stimulates the herd mentality, and tends to produce ferocity towards those who are not regarded as members of the herd. " -- Bertrand Russell

Excerpts from a longer essay by our friend 
Matthew Noto @My planet, My Rules

We've reached Peak Fucktard.  I thought we had achieved this ignominious goal several times before -- the elevation of an Affirmative Action hire to the Presidency; handing out mortgages to people who couldn't pay them back; the destruction of the Western University as a beacon of enlightenment; the elevation of the Kardashians to billionaire status -- but I have obviously been mistaken. No, it took a most-unusual combination of unforeseen factors to bring every last fucktarded waste of gametes out from the closets. Plague, economic ruin, politics, a media-induced panic, have all combined to ensure that the Human Race, particularly the American Breed, could take collective leave of their feeble senses to such an extent as to make one weep for the future of Humanity as a whole.

Mind you, half (at least) of the human race was a disease unto itself, and something akin to herd animals. The behavior of this particular Herd made it abundantly clear that civilization stood upon a knife edge, seeing as it was the half that expected all the rewards of civilization without having to contribute anything of value towards it's continuation.  They simply multiplied, made enough noises to make their shepherds attentive to their basest emotions -- discontent, anger, moron, jealousy, fear, a pretense to self-esteem founded largely upon the lack of esteem of the self -- to respond in some fashion.  Usually a fashion that was intended to shut the herd up while the shepherd went back to planning how to profit from the fleecing to come.

And the Herd had learned that if you make enough noise, you get something for it. Perhaps not exactly what you wanted, but a close approximation of it, from the shepherd. The shepherd simply tossed out goodies -- the herd cared not whence they came -- and it was better than nothing.  Mostly because "better" meant the herd would have to take action of it's own accord, and being sheep, discovering they lacked the collective brainpower and motivation to do little more than graze and make an occasional noise. No, the Herd was a good, comfortable thing. The shepherd, even if he shaved your ass every spring to take your wool and occasionally ate one of your comrades or children, at least could be counted upon to react to your noises. To show initiative, intelligence, ambition, even common sense, was to imply that there was something wrong with the Herd, and the Herd is always touchy and seeking slights, real or imagined, so as to justify more noise and more attention from the shepherds.

And then came the scourge of the Flu Manchu.

The Herd Mentality took over. Suddenly, the Herd was unsafe going about it usual business of aimlessly roaming the pastures. The Herd was now under attack from a force the shepherds could not overcome by simply reacting to mere noise and mollifying same with some shiny object or lofty promise. The sheep became terrified. If the shepherds couldn't understand what was happening, and the supply of shiny-objects-for-noise suddenly dried up, then what was the Herd to do?

The only thing the shepherds -- guided by people they refer to as "experts" whose claim to expertise is highly questionable -- could think to do was to shove the Herd into the barn, where it came into contact with other Herds similarly imprisoned by their shepherds, herders, and tenders. That barn got pretty crowded very quickly. Some sheep didn't make it in and succumbed to the Asian Snot Storm, which made the sheep sad, since they all believed they were going to live forever -- because they made the noise that said they should, and the Shepherd reacted by destroying the veterinary system they would depend upon in an act of Social Justice -- and this was a tragedy.

And it gave the sheep, perhaps for the first time in their lives, a sense of their own mortality; and this was, like, unfair...and stuff. The Sheep expected to survive, because someone else had studied to be a vet, and someone else had built the veterinary hospital, and someone else had been expected to pick up the tab when the sheep fell ill, and the shepherd had promised eternal life at someone else's expense. Someone the sheep referred to as "a deplorable", but whom they had never seen, having never ventured far from the Herd.  But the Shepherd insisted they existed and the sheep always believed the shepherd, even when they couldn't understand what he was talking about. Because new shiny object arrived before the perturbation coalesced around understanding.

The Herd began to doubt. The Shepherd was no longer believed. He couldn't be believed, for the reality the Sheep had now experienced -- vicariously, on television -- did not match the fantasy the Shepherd had constructed, and even sheep -- stupid, unthinking, unmotivated, easily-silenced-by-promises sheep -- had to notice.  And so they looked to someone else for leadership.

Even though the Herd had been trained from it's earliest stages to regard The Orange Ranchero with little more than reflexive disgust and fear of imminent fascism (the sheep did not know what this was, and could not recognize it when the shepherds engaged in it, but they were assured that if someone else did it, it was a bad thing), they still needed someone to lead them. The Shepherd inspired no more confidence; his vast array of mental distractions -- Global Warming, "The Patriarchy", "Gun Control", "Free" whatever, and others -- suddenly didn't seem so important, and the shiny object trick had finally worn thin.

And the Orange Ranchero did things, the sheep knew not what, and demanded results (something the shepherd, certainly, never asked for) from these nebulous "experts", and he had even dared to disregard the Plantation the sheep had been used to grazing upon in favor of another group inimical to the Herd, called "capitalists". The sheep are confused. They don't know what to do, or who to believe. They are torn between their loyalty to the Herd and their now-resurgent self-preservation instinct.

Another of these gaseous forms -- which calls itself "Journalists" -- circulates among the Herd. These "Journalists" insist they are due a certain level of deference and that they are entitled to be believed, because, like the "experts", they are living off the cachet their profession built up over centuries, but then discarded for it's own self-interest. These rascals are continuously whispering in the Herd's collective ears a cacophony of word vomit that is supposed to be uncritically regarded as "Truth" (because the "Journalist" is aware the Sheep regard thinking as a chore not suited to Herd life, and best left to someone else to do on it's behalf) and spiteful mendacity directed at The Orange Ranchero -- a relic of their distaste for him, based upon his frequent exposure of their own stupidity and hypocrisy, and their dislike of his "style", which is of a sort their own Herd regards as "common".

So that when The Orange Ranchero speculates about the possibilities of a certain drug being used to treat the Wuhan Fluhan, the Sheep -- with their limited capacity for independent thought, poor reading comprehension skills, and general jerkoff obtained through several generations of inbreeding -- drink Fish Tank Cleaner, and one of them dies, it's Orange Ranchero's fault. At least that's what the "Journalists" said he said. And the Herd, used to accepting whatever is tossed their way without thinking about it, took that as Bible Truth, and the "Journalists" said "Aha!

We told you you were fucktards! That's why you should listen to us! We know everything!" Including that they knew that The Orange Ranchero never told anyone to drink the aquatic version of Tidy Bowl, but that was too good a dig to make at El Presidente, because he doesn't participate in the annual White House Correspondents Association Dinner, which the herd of "Journalists" considers a sacrament, but which The Orange Ranchro regards with the same displeasure one does upon finding the Sheep's poop on the soles of his boots.

And the Shepherds, the "Journalists", the other brain-damaged Herds, and the "expert-because-worthless-diploma-and-government-job" all simultaneously make The Big Noise that Orange Ranchero is a modern-day Doctor Mengele.

Michigan Lawmakers Consider Move to Reign In Frau Whitmer

The Plastic Face Lady - Govenor Frau Whitmer (D-Michigan) 

Lawmakers in 
Michigan are considering bills that would strip Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of some of her powers after her decision to extend  Michigan’s stay-at-home order for two weeks beyond its original April 30 expiration  The Wolverine State has been rocked by protests and unrest for weeks over the restrictive measures, with some state lawmakers calling a special legislative session on Friday to reel in the Frau Whitmer. Armed protesters descended on the governor’s home Thursday after news of the extended order broke in a demonstration dubbed “Operation Queen’s Castle.”

Critics have accused the 48-year-old first-term Democrat governor of overstepping her authority with a series of measures.  The April 9 revisions to her initial stay-at-home order included bans on visiting friends and relatives or traveling to vacation homes, and halts on sales of items such as furniture and gardening supplies. But marijuana, lottery tickets and alcohol had been declared "essential," while lawn care, construction and fishing in a motorized boat had been declared nonessential amid the outbreak.

On Monday, Whitmer said she would take a 10 percent cut to her $159,300 annual salary and her staffers would take cuts of 5 percent as the state grapples with the financial fallout of the coronavirus shutdowns. Gee Gretch, that's real generous of you.

The Award for 'Best Staged Media Theatrics' of the Week Goes to The Duo of Squinty & Meat Puppet

Joe Scarborough opened today's 'Morning with Squinty & Meat Puppet' by mentioning that rather than watching DJT's press conference yesterday, he listened to the Rolling Stones to calm his nerves.  Squinty Joe, known for his scripted rants he stays up nights writing, because we all know he's not sharp enough to 'Off the Cuff It', opened up on his tens of hundreds of viewers with a pretend meltdown which didn't fool me a bit, literally screaming and pounding the table as he railed against DJT and an unnamed "network" [obviously Fox News] regarding the coronavirus.

Dutifully playing her appointed part, Meat Puppet Mika almost acts concerned about her husband's mental health as they went to break, asking Scarborough "do you need to go listen to the Stones, or are you okay?"

This is media Faux outrage and play for attention at it's best. I present to you the winner of 'Best Staged Media Theatrics' of the Week":

From Court Jester to The Placeholder


Strange days are these, indeed. And in what alternative universe can anyone imagine Joe Biden actually making it through a rigorous election campaign? The party he supposedly leads stuffed him into a closet last week after he gibbered and drooled through a live stream appearance with CNN’s softball pitcher Anderson Cooper. They can’t just hide the poor dolt there until November.

Asked about reopening everyday life in America, Biden said, “You know, there’s a…Roosevelt (not sure if he meant Teddy or Franklin) and something something something and war. It went downhill from there. Everybody knows he’s dimmer than a night-lite, and everybody’s pretending it’s okay. There’s no analog in history for any faction putting up such an empty vessel for high office. Granted, the Democratic Party has trafficked in unreality for years, from Crossfire Hurricane through UkraineGate ­(with side-trips like trannies in women’s sports) but those capers were just old-fashioned scams. Joe Biden for President is Emperor’s-New-Clothes caliber deceit, requiring a rank-and-file so marinated in falsehood they couldn’t tell you the difference between a red light and a green light.

So, you have to ask: what is their game? Picking Joe as the instrument to block Bernie seemed especially dumb just weeks after the Democrats’ impeachment gambit blew up in their faces.  There really are only two plausible game plans for the Dems with Biden. One is that he’s a mere placeholder until the convention – assuming it can even be held, where party bigwigs are forced to undo their Biden blunder by some legerdemain of rules-fudging, and cram in a last-minute replacement. The putative savior would be none other than She-Whose-Turn-Was-Thwarted in 2016, on the grounds that she at least knows how to run for president, even if she isn’t very good at it. They might as well hand every delegate a dixie-cup of cyanide-enhanced kool-aid as they cast that fateful vote.

The other pretty obvious scheme, seemingly underway now, is to fix up Joe with a running-mate who can take over his duties twenty-three minutes after the inauguration ceremony. Tank Abrams, the self-proclaimed “real governor of Georgia” who, in fact lost that election but has made out nicely hustling her delusions while campaigning arduously for the VP appointment. Wouldn’t that make a heck of an appealing ticket? Or maybe the Voodoo Queen Kamala??

Apparently, there's a memo the Democratic Party didn't get: America no longer has time for identity politics. There are more important things to attend to, like whether large numbers of people go to bed hungry, get cast out of their homes, live or die. Things like that. For the moment, the USA doesn’t have an economy. Nor does much of the rest of the world. Believe me, that’s a problem. And unlike Joe's dementia, there’s no pretense about not noticing it

Fredo Stages Weird ‘Official’ Emergence From His Basement


It's not been a good few days for the media sideshow formerly known as "Most Trusted Name in News".  First we had the media hall monitor, Tater Stelter, losing his sh*t and crying in his pillow, then we hear Brook Baldwin is in dark places with severe mascara withdrawals, they totally blew the whole Korean Fat Kid is Dead thing, and now we find Fredo Cuomo gets caught faking his heroic emergence from the dankness of his prime-time televised basement solitary confinement.

According to The Federalist,  the CNN anchor dramatically staged a post-coronavirus emergence from his basement on Monday’s Fredo Prime Time, falsely implying the footage captured the “official” first moment he left his basement quarantine. But as we have learned, believing anything on CNN is kinda like believing in fairies.

Just last week on his radio show the brother of New York’s governor (Cuomo the Elder) complained about the downsides of his high-profile CNN gig. As the New York Post reported "Fredo then launched into a tale about a ‘loser biker’ who confronted him on Easter Sunday for being outside his property with his family despite his coronavirus diagnosis.” Fredo's staged emergence came after the  journalist talking head, discussed prior travels from his home, rendering Monday’s video report misleading at best and an outright lie at worst.

In the footage aired by “Fredo Prime Time,” the anchor ascended a staircase claiming, “Alright, here it is, the official reentry from the basement. Cleared by CDC, little sweaty, just worked out, it happens. This is what I’ve been dreaming of, literally for weeks.” 

So, Fredo was diagnosed with the virus on March 31. He left his home to visit another property on April 12, at least a 30-minute drive from his home and flouting his own brother’s “essential travel” guidelines. April 20, he aired “the official reentry” from his basement on CNN. That’s the definition of Fake News. These are facts. CNN might call them apples. They indisputably amount to false coverage. They should raise the ire of media defenders. (But they won’t.)

To be clear, as far as CNN falsehoods go, this one isn’t the worst. Yet the weird attempt to revise Cuomo the Younger's personal history remains a glistening example of why the apple-versus-banana channel has serious credibility problems. The same people who rant daily about alleged lies from the White House twist facts to suit their own narratives.

The Plastic Face Lady - "How Dare They Defy My Diktats".

Frau Whitmer (D-Michigan) She Will Punish You.

Jobs are being destroyed, mortgages are in arrears, businesses have closed and many will never re-open. If there’s one thing that’s becoming increasingly obvious about the coronavirus lockdown, it’s that some people are getting really, really sick of it.  
The last few days have been rife with protests, as people across the country let their governors know how they feel.  Onerous shutdowns are going to have to end soon or we’re going to be facing genuine social disorder and economic collapse.  Nowhere is this more obvious than in Michigan.

Over the weekend, protests erupted in Lansing, and the Governor, Frau Whitmer, is none too pleased that her Michiganders have dared defy her quarantine diktats and her Bizarro-World definitions of “essential” and “non-essential."  Appearing on conspiracy central's Rickey Maddow show, she deflected the protests as nothing more than political rallies.  Because of them, she claims she may need to punish the state by extending her lockdown order. *Clicks Heels* 

It's weird how leftists only seem to call protests “political rallies” when they target Democrats.  If the exact same protest had been aimed at a Republican governor, it would have been portrayed as a brave display of resistance, or “the highest form of patriotism.” And It’s unclear whether Whitmer genuinely believes her random proclamations about “non-essential” goods, services and activities are really helping the situation, or if she’s just playing to her party in pursuit of the vice presidency.  What is clear is that her state is getting sick of her. The recall petition has picked up steam.

Fair or not, she’s become an avatar for the worst sort of capricious, nanny-state tyrant.  Whatever goodwill she enjoyed outside of Detroit and Lansing is quickly evaporating, and the anti-Whitmer voices are only getting louder.  Expect that to be accelerated by the punitive notion that you are kids in the back seat got noisy, and the grown-ups are angry.  Your betters apparently think you may need to be punished. In fact, they might just turn the state right around and keep you trapped in your homes for another month or so.  Don’t think they won’t do it, either.

Coming Soon to CNN & MSNBC

Cable news networks are running out of "experts" to repeatedly appear and politicize the Chinese coronavirus,  and the likes of Don Lemon, Chris Hayes or Squinty & Meat Puppet will soon be dragging people like this out of the subway for round-table panelist.

Pretty Much Why the Media is Useless in the Age of the Chinese Coronavirus.....

Here's a few notes I've scribbled down over the past days from my nest in the love seat about the present apocalypse as conveyed to us by the many soft skull geniuses at CNN & MSNBC:

We're told not to leave the house for any reason. But if you have to, then you can.  Masks are useless, but maybe you should have to wear one, it can save you, but it is probably useless otherwise, but maybe it should be mandatory as well.  You should not go to hospitals unless you have to go there. Same applies to doctors, you should only go there in case of emergency, provided you are not too sick.

Animals are not affected, but there is still a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested, plus a few tigers here and there.  You will have many symptoms when you are sick, but you can also get sick without symptoms, have symptoms without being sick, or be contagious without having symptoms. In order not to get sick, you have to eat well and exercise, but eat whatever you have on hand and it’s better not to go out, well, but no…

This virus is deadly but still not too scary, except that sometimes these things actually leads to a global disaster.  Everyone needs to stay HOME, but it’s important to GO OUT.  There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarket, but there are many things missing when you go there in the evening, but not in the morning. Sometimes.

It’s better to get some fresh air, but you will get looked at as very wrong when you get some fresh air, and most importantly, you don’t go to parks or walk.  If you do go, don’t sit down, except that you can do that now if you are old, but not for too long or if you are pregnant (but not too old). If you are sick, you can’t go out, but you can go to the pharmacy.

You can get restaurant food delivered to the house, which may have been prepared by people who didn’t wear masks or gloves. But you have to have your groceries decontaminated outside for 3 hours. Every disturbing article or disturbing interview starts with “ I don’t want to trigger panic, but…” The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours, no, four, no, six, no, we didn’t say hours, maybe days? But it takes a damp environment. Oh no, not necessarily.

The virus stays in the air - well no, or yes, maybe, especially in a closed room, in one hour a sick person can infect ten, so if it falls, all our children were already infected at school before it was closed. But remember, if you stay at the recommended social distance, however in certain circumstances you should maintain a greater distance, which, studies show, the virus can travel further, maybe.

We have no treatment, except that there may be one or two  medications that apparently are not dangerous unless you take to much and has been prescribed for decades, but we cannot use it because someone might experience side-effects, or even get sick.

We should stay locked up until the virus disappears, but it will only disappear if we achieve collective immunity.  We count the number of deaths but we don’t know how many people are infected as we have only tested so far those who were “almost dead” to find out if that’s what they will die of…and in NYC they are cooking the books by adding 3700 more deaths to their total even though they were never tested and only presumed to have died from coronavirus.

Orangeman Bad.    

Joe Went off the Teleprompter Again......

Joe Biden appeared this morning with his wife on MSNBC’s Squinty & Meat Puppet in the Morning, famous for questioning Trump’s mental health. Meanwhile, they are hosting this word salad without even a question of Biden’s inability to function. He attempts to share an anecdote that turns into something so foreign that you’d think he’s speaking a different language. The stuttering, the losing his train of thought, the slurring of his words, and the inability to make any sense are all readily apparent. Jill Biden just sits there, obviously realizing how badly he’s doing. 
No one around him seems to want to end this buffoonish charade. Lady MacBeth Jill Biden, REALLY wants to be First Lady and looks like she’s in on it.

Lo, Such Rebellious Subjects We Have Become!!


It seems pockets of the Spirit of  '76 live on in the former British colony of Maryland, in particularly the township of Taneytown, founded 1754, where police are having to warn subjects against indulging in certain forms of civil disobedience. The Taneytown Police took to their official facebook page to remind the cabin fever weary citizens of proper lawful procedures when inquiring into the contents of their mailboxes in this time of pandemic.
"Give me liberty, or give me death!" is live and well in Taneytown, and the citizens took to the police facebook page and had a real good time with it.  1K comments last time I looked.

Barky Obama Reminds Us He's Still a D**k Head


After months of speculation, Barky O' has finally endorsed his former VP in his bid for the White House. It was a brave move considering everyone else has dropped out and no one else to endorse. In an excruciatingly long 12-minute endorsement, the 44th President says that making Biden his “vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made” and that he “has all the qualities we need in a president right now.” He did it with a straight face too. 

He tried to reassure Bernie’s socialist soft skull minions by saying, “Joe already has what is the most progressive platform of any major party nominee in modern history.” That may be news to Biden, but I'm sure someone will tell him if they ever unlock the basement door. 

And of course Barky couldn't leave it at the endorsement at hand and show the dignity in his words former presidents are accustomed to showing, he had to prove he is still a giant dick.
“One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the US Senate are not interested in progress. They’re interested in power… They’ve given polluters unlimited power to poison our air and our water… The other side has a massive warchest. The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”
There may have been only one thing he said that I can agree with: “Our country’s future hangs on this election.”

Fredo's Epiphany

'Cuomo The Younger'

I'm not sure if he has fully recovered or not or just in a fever dream of some kind, but it seems Andrew Cuomo too has come to the same conclusion most of us did long ago - Why in hell are you on television??

According to the New York Post, 'Cuomo the Younger' said his battle with COVID-19 has made him rethink his values and question his position as a public figure. Fredo took to the radio mic Monday and trashed his nightly primetime CNN gig.
“I don’t like what I do professionally, trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous. Like talking to Democrats about things that I don’t really believe they mean and talking to Republicans about them parroting things they feel they have to say. 
I don’t think it’s worth my time. I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally. I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”
Personally I suspect watching 'Cuomo The Elder' on the tube everyday giving his coronavirus press briefing, projecting an image of a respected voice and popular politician, not a ridiculed host masquerading as journalist of a basement rated opinion show on an embarrassment of a news network, has done a number on Fredo's head.  I suspect he also spent some of his time alone the basement binge watching the other networks and realized how utterly ridiculous the media sounds as nothing but a verbal hit squad.  He also said he wants to stop analyzing the president, “Who we all know is full of shit by design.”

Fredo said he has to tolerate other people’s opinions of himself and it’s just not worth it to him anymore. (I hope we didn't hurt his feelings).
“I don’t think it's worth it to me because I don’t think I mean enough, I don’t think I matter enough, I don’t think I can really change anything, so then what am I really doing?” 
“I’m basically being perceived as successful in a system that I don’t value,” he continued. “I’m seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions… but I don’t know if I value those things...."
Then again, you can't be employed by CNN and also be part of  a Presidential Campaign when your brother is drafted to replace Joey B. now can you???

No City, No County or Parish, State or Government Worldwide Was Prepared for a Response to the Coronavirus. To say Otherwise is Just a Lie

But it won't prevent the pus filled life form known as Adam Schiff  from trying to capitalize on the Lie on behalf of Democrats.

Oh God, How I Have Grown to Truly Loathe These People

I know this is probably not the time to post something like this, but after yesterday, I've had enough.  I've been told my entire life that HATE is not healthy emotion and will eat you from the inside. But of what we are now witnessing, I find it harder and harder to fight the impulse.  For what seems an eternity now one has heard a lot of hueing and crying from Never Trumpers who have managed to transition from being what was thought to be patriot defenders of Republican ideals to shameless permanent, paid members of a hate-filled leftist Media without so much a change of clothes.

They are very loud, these Never Trumpers, and have been gifted enormous mainstream media platforms and they are just full of Righteous Indignation about how OMFG can you believe that these "Trumpers" are still supporting their Dear Leader even though he lies to them every day! And OMFG, Fox News!! And OMFG, this is not the Republican Party I was a part of!!

And even now, in our times of trouble we share with most of the rest of the world, even now, they cannot put aside their hateful propaganda and tell the truth.   

Self-lobotomizing Republican meatheads, through-and-through cowards, collecting a paycheck from the leftist media lords with their eyes wide open. And whether they are zombies or cowards or cold-blooded mercenaries, all of them are complicit in promoting an anti-american regressive monster and further dividing a nation.

All of them.

All of them, every Never Trumper you see on teevee or read in The New York Times or The Washington Post wringing their hands and weeping bitter tears over the loss of their glorious party and the state of the nation. 

So congratulations: While you were busy explaining to your family and friends that you had joined the fight against the Republican  fringe, that bold new experiments in a wholly fake press “reporting” wholly fake news you joined into became the “fringe” and the Democrats became The fringe Party.


So you can remain comfortable with wearing your sheets of intolerance and goose-step marching in formation as you divide the country, but what you can’t do is continue this ruinous and infantile pretense that you're are the truth. You and your fellow wingnuts clearly hate traditional America as passionately as any muslim jihadist. You hate the plurality of it, the tolerance, the check-and-balance that deters your fellow believers from curb-stomping red hat wearing patriots, or colored Trump supporters whenever they fucking well feel like it. You seem delighted with the notion of a fascist America (as long as you are the one’s holding the machine guns) Your heads are open sewers swirling with happy masturbatory thoughts of beating your opposition to jelly. You are at war with reality itself, and smile at every lie your ivory tower Lord and Masters allow you to tell.


Every mediawhore who is uncovered, figuratively or otherwise, makes the shrug and smirk and then dance a drunken little jig that says, “See! We can say anything and you can’t stop us! Anything! ”

This is the behavior you validate and actively endorses every time your voice supports progressive voices. By some sudden and inexplicable madness which no one could possibly have seen coming, you make absolutely no secret of what your agenda is, what your willing to do with no conscience as you help overthrow all we hold dear.

So how about you Wake the Fuck Up and answer me one, simple question: Why in the name of God do you insist on helping your enemies destroy the nation you claim you love?

Dems are Literally Exploiting Death and Disease to Advance an Agenda

Like a bunch of howling monkeys flinging poop, democrats are throwing all of their pet projects at the wall to see what will stick as congress tries to relieve the nation's pain and work toward steps to revive the economy.  No matter what it is, no matter how completely unrelated the issue may be, they’re trying their best to tie it to the Covid-19 pandemic relief bills.  Universal basic income, tax hikes, gun control, and end to oil, Medicare-for-all.  No matter how tenuous or outright ridiculous the connection may be, they're attempting to portray all of their longstanding agenda items as an imperative part of the recovery.

“Squad member” and Prog Princess Ayanna 'Bullethead' Pressley (D-MA) as rabidly left-wing as anyone in the House of Reps, is doing her part by trying to inject a steaming pile of progressive pipe dreams into the next round of stimulus that includes cash for illegal immigrants, prisoners, homeless people, and 100% student loan forgiveness.

Never mind that in most cases these financial situations either pre-date, or have absolutely nothing to do with the coronavirus pandemic, Pressley smells blood in the water, and she’s looking to exploit it. Logic, and fiscal realities, be damned.

Even the perpetually confused Joe Biden on an appearance of CNN’s Fredo Cuomo Corona Basement Show, reiterated comments made by James Clyburn in which the House Minority Whip accidentally admitted Dems view the COVID-19 outbreak as an “opportunity.”  An opportunity to do what? Restructure the United States. Since Joe also needs to shore up his left-wing bona fides, he also takes the opportunity to blame the corona pandemic on the environment. As he puts it:
“We have an opportunity, Chris, to do so many things now to change some of the structural things that are wrong, some of the structural things we couldn’t get anyone’s attention on. In a sense, no pun intended, the Band-Aid’s been ripped off here. Everybody now understands that we have a voting system that is not transparent and clear and available for everyone. Everyone understands that the environment has impacted on this coronavirus and there’s mounting evidence of that.”
That’s some impressive gaslighting, and since it’s CNN, no reason to challenge him for any actual proof to back up those claims.  But get used to it, because the media is going to have to cheerlead and NOT ask the right questions if they want to drag Joe’s sorry ass across the finish line Election Day.

Coronavirus Hasn't Slowed the Sewage From the Ivory Towers

The Wistful Utopian Centrist Thomas Friedman

If you happen to have perused the latest dreadful exercise by NYTs Thomas Friedman in drunk revisionist history, magical thinking, and radical 'both siderist' idiocy seems vaguely familiar to you, it should.  Because it is virtually identical to the drunk revisionist, magical thinking, radically idiotic "OMFG Democrats Should Do National Unity" column that Friedman wrote just before Michael Bloomberg's campaign and his $500 mil. went in the woodchipper.

Friedman, bless his heart, has a long-time, brainsick fetish for solving all nation's problems by waving a wand and creating a Magical Centrist Third Party. With 'Bernie the Red' all but out of the way, Friedman is now suggesting that at the 2020 Democrat National Convention that the nation's coming savior, Joe Biden, name a “national unity cabinet” to signal an end to the bad old “hyperpartisanship” of the previous era.

From his Ivory Tower of privilege and political infantilism, Friedman pleads for a “political system to mirror the best in us rather than to continue to exacerbate the worst,” which presumably means parking your political party, your ideology, and perhaps your values at the door and pitching in to the common cause of having a common cause.

He wishfully dreams the Democrat Party, a political cult which has openly declared war on everything America believes in, a party of bigots and imbeciles which has been going very publicly insane for the past 40 years,  rotten from top to bottom and has shown over and over again that the minute it gets its filthy paws on any political power whatsoever it will unhesitatingly use that power to damage the country,  should actually share power in the nation saving Biden administration with a renewed Trumpless Republican party.

[insert laugh track here]
 
Friedman even included 20 suggestions for Biden's fantasy Cabinet, my favorite feature being that it would place Alexandria Ocashew-Cortex at the U.N. as our ambassador, reporting to Mitt Romney as secretary of State. That should be a fun partnership. Even among the Democrats, there are some strange configurations, like Wall Street’s own Mike Bloomberg at Treasury cheek to jowl with Lizzy Warren as Czarina of oversight for the trillions of dollars in emergency coronavirus spending. What could go wrong...

For some reason people like Friedman struggle to understand or accept that partisan polarization is in no small part attributable to genuine ingrained differences of opinion over economics, the role of government, the legal system, America’s place in the word, and yes, culture. Culture Mr. Friedman. One you've turned your back on from the relative safety of your Ivory Tower.

You Know It Pained Cuomo the Elder to Say It -'DJT Delivered'


Democrat Sphincters Clinched all Across the Fruited Plain at Hearing His Words

Meanwhile, about that same time over at the incapable of relating to facts network, CNN's Anderson Cooper was claiming no timeline for PPE has been provided after CNN refused to air WH press conferences during which military officers provided a timeline for PPE.

National Media is Actually ROOTING for Hydroxycloroquine To Not Work as a Treatment. Think About That.

Dr. Anthony Cardillo said he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients. "Every patient I've prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free. So clinically I am seeing a resolution."

Cardillo is the CEO of Mend Urgent Care, which has locations in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys and Burbank. He said he has found it only works if combined with zinc. The drug, he said, opens a channel for the zinc to enter the cell and block virus replication. He says that the drug shouldn't be prescribed for those who are only mildly ill, because he doesn't want to exhaust our supplies. But he says it has "very promising results" for the "most severely ill."

Meanwhile, the media continues its open war on hydroxychloroquine. The Bad Orange Man said it's good, therefore, it must also be bad.  They pretend their bias comes from "experts" but they always seem to forget to quote the expert medical doctors treating patients and seeing success. Someone is anti-hope b/c that goes hand-in-hand with being anti-Trump. Trump and the others at the briefing SAID it's not for everyone and even some shouldn't based on their health history. And it should come as no surprise some wacked AOC want-a-be wants to refer crimes against humanity' charges against the president.

But sure, be unhinged. Alinsky tactics all the time at CNN:

If hydroxychloroquine is proven to work well against COVID-19, its sales would jump, but pharmaceutical analysts say they don’t know of any company or individual that stands to make a windfall. That’s because there’s so much competition and the vast majority of prescriptions filled are for generics. But that hasn't stopped Ricky Maddow and the frothing Tin Foil Hat Brigades from aping their conspiracy theories.

Hideous Horned Insect With Strange Genitals Officially Named After Strange Celebrity


Enigmatic pop star Lady Gaga seems as if she’s horny and has strange sexual proclivities. Now, joining other femmes fatale such as Beyonc├ę and Kate Winslet, she enjoys the rare and possibly dubious honor of having an insect named after her.

The Kaikai gaga is an absolutely hideous beastie who was named by the has-to-be-gay entomologist Brendan Morris of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, who describes his decision to name a repulsive rare treehopper from Nicaragua after the mysterious and possibly autistic pop performer:
If there is going to be a Lady Gaga bug, it’s going to be a treehopper, because they have these crazy horns and a wacky fashion sense about them. They are unlike anything you’ve seen before. The frontoclypeus, which is like the face, was shaped totally different. The genitalia also looked more like treehoppers from the Caribbean. 
When you pause for a moment that this is a guy who studies equatorial insect genitalia, you don’t know who should be more insulted: Lady Gaga or the bug that was just named after her?  I would have thought naming a reptile species after her would be more appropriate.
But Yeah, I kinda See a Resemblance.....
