Mother Jones Whines People Keep Stealing the Language of Wokeness


The notorious progressive nutsack, Mother Jones, has their panties all in a wad because the left's sacred mantra of 'wokeness' is being disrespected.  Recently, there was comparison made of white supremacy to what was called “woke” supremacy. What was so upsetting and off-putting was the author of such vile thought - one of three black GOP congressmen, Senator Tim Scott (R-SC). 

After being criticized in a Washington Post op-ed, the senator responded with his own piece, clarifying his comments.  “Woke” supremacy was as bad as white supremacy because, according to him, “Woke culture is speeding our country toward ideological and literal segregation.”  As one example of evidence, the Senator stated that more and more universities like Columbia had announced they would be holding multicultural graduation ceremonies, excluding white students, as well as the university-wide commencement. Sounds like segregation to me.

According to Mother Jones, the goal of right reasoning people like the honorable Sen Scott, is to take the radical messages like BLACK LIVES MATTER and muddle it enough until it means something like its opposite.
"So it goes with any message of social transformation. Wokeness becomes synonymous with oppression itself. Black Lives Matter is spun into “blue lives matter.” “I can’t breathe” is adopted by anti-maskers as their smirking slogan. The mantras and catchwords of movements that challenge the status quo are co-opted by reactionaries who want to quash those efforts.  Perhaps no phrase has undergone this type of distortion more prominently than the phrase “Black Lives Matter.” The “all lives matter” rhetoric was just the beginning of the co-optation. 
Today, at any right-wing gathering, you can find supporters of the “blue lives matter” cause (supposedly in support of police officers) and “babies’ lives matter” (for the anti-abortion movement). They’re flipped on their head, turned inside out, repurposed to sneer at the people they were meant to rally, and generally made to seem comical and ridiculous—a rhetorical minstrel act, essentially, whose theme is the old American standby that there’s no greater racist than the anti-racist, no greatest tyrant than the slave who wants to be free."
Comical and ridiculous—a rhetorical minstrel act is exactly what "Wokeness" is!

And the more woke we become, the more talk of safe spaces from white people, segregated events and suppression of free thought. The left are in a frenzy of excesses, and there are very real efforts to not only suppress speech but also to punish violations of new orthodoxies.  The left are protesting problems that they themselves allowed to fester and grow, covering their tracks by ever changing excuses, changing lexicon, and placing blame elsewhere.

The "Woke Supremacy" Sen. Scott spoke of is real.  It operates in bad faith, strawmanning complex systems and individuals as racist, misogynistic, etc. for power over people.  If "Black Lives Matter," then so do "All Lives Matter".

Joe Biden & CO. Taking a Wrecking Ball To The Republic

If I had told you five years ago that Joe Biden would put a man who thinks he is a woman in charged of the nation's healthcare policy, one in favor of using children as a test bed for gender reassignment cultural experiments. Or that he would politicize the US military,  or nominate some of the the most hate filled, unamerican, anti-white bigots to high level cabinet and policy decision positions, all while allowing hundreds of thousands illegals to pour over our border, your first reaction would probably be:  Joe Biden President???

Yes, the President of the United States, who just said he "doesn't criticize" China for its goal of becoming "the most powerful country in the world." That Joe Biden, who was Court Jester of the Barky Obama Administration, now being used to engineer the most wide sweeping transition of the republic since reconstruction. You'd have to be a fool of epic proportions to believe this man, one who was once a sharp minded and respected legislator, who now can barely make a public statement without notecards, is the one swinging this wrecking ball.

Just this weekend we learned Biden's DHS Head, Alejandro Mayorkas just fired almost all the members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, a bipartisan panel made up of leaders appointed by both Democrat and Republican DHS secretaries of old, that has existed and provided expertise and advice for years to the secretary’s office.

This would seem the worst possible time to axe such a support, when they are in a middle of a border crisis, with the Biden making all kinds of mistakes and bad policy moves. The Council was non-political and actually knew their stuff. They would see what is going on and wouldn’t be able to be buffaloed. *so down comes the axe*

Meanwhile, Biden has been criticized for appointing yet another retired general to head up the Pentagon, one many believe won’t speak his mind when dealing with a new president and will wreak havoc on civilian-military relations. Yesterday, the new Pentagon chief, General Lloyd Austin, announced US Special Operations Command had made appointment of its first “chief of diversity and inclusion.” This attack of morale, good order, and discipline comes in the form of mandating  “diversity and inclusion” (diversity and inclusion do not, apparently, extend to heterosexual males, particularly if they are white).

This takes place as Army Special Forces can no longer attract enough candidates to the selection course to fill vacancies, if anything like standards are maintained. This new Chief of Diversity & Inclusion who brings diversity, inclusion, thick glasses, and a double chin to U.S. Special Operations Command is Mr. Richard Torres-Estrada. What is glaringly absent from his resume is anything remotely related to being part of an organization that has a critical mission.....and a single day spent in uniform. The idea that you are going to pluck a goober like this from a failed organization like the Washington Metro (though they are very happy wallowing in their failure and not terribly concerned about doing anything except failing, so there is that) and have him oversee efforts to ensure more of the right kind of people make it to the top of the Special Operations community is nothing short of bizarre. His tweeter account includes statement comparing DJT to Hitler.

Under a sane president, this deliberate effort to divide the military into opposing camps based on race, ethnicity, and “gender” could have been mitigated. Unfortunately for all of us, we don’t have a sane president.  What next? A soviet style Political Officer on all ships and Subs, Bomb Wings and Infantry Units to maintain the proper diversity and gender balance???

This all follows Biden's his handlers decision to give Biden Rep. Marcia Fudge to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development, who, with her $50 Billion budget favors racial equity by planting diversity in your neighborhood and turning your little slice of America into her own familiar Cleveland ghetto.

Then there's Secretary of Energy: former governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm, a fossil fuel hating bundle of sweetness who spent most of last year's campaign season on daily MSNBC programs ranting like a meth head calling most all Republican Nazis, and says you WILL drive an electric car if she has anything to say about it!  And at Transportation, little Pete Buttigieg, former mayor  that couldn't fill a pothole in South Bend, but does know a lot about trains, and wants you to rediscover the wonders of a bicycle seat, and unconstitutionally tax your freedom of movement. 

Most of all the nominees, this Vanita Gupta chick is the most dangerous of all. Picked as Biden's associate attorney general, her public record has proved extreme to say the least. She's an avowed leftist and accused of lying about her stance on defunding the police, qualified immunity, drug legalization, and capital punishment. Her twitter account is most damaging.  This is just a sample of what has come to light this last week.

For four years the mantra of the media was DJT was a danger to our democracy. But ladies and gentlemen, what every that perceived danger DJT supposedly posed, it was nothing compared to what we now face.  REAL danger from within by the leftist to our republic. Not imagined, but real.

Throwback Thursday: Joe Biden Plans Vice Presidential Library

♫ We Have Friends In Low Places 

Middle Finger News Service Wire:

MFNS - Wilmington Del.- Unnamed sources close to Joe Biden have told MFNS the former VP has gotten a wild hair and decided to build his own Vice Presidential Library in his longtime home District in Delaware.  The source told us supporters of Biden convinced him of the need of on honor, he being the historic two term VP of the first black President of the United States, and as Biden himself likes to say, "The Cream in the Coffee of the Obama Administration."

The initial plans set forth for the library are said to include a Bidenesque design of three wings.  One showcasing his early life and lengthy time in the Senate, another housing pictures and mementos of his two terms as Vice President and a third holding his personal notes and the many proposed initiatives and ideas brutally shot down by President Obama.  The building is planned to also feature a Gift Shop, 51 Political Correct Gender Specific Restrooms, an Indoor Super-Soaker Tactical Training Course, a Free-Range Fried Chicken Café and a Starbucks.

The project is said to be funded totally with moneys raised by private contributions. The FOB's (Friends of Biden) last month started a Go-Fund-Me page to raise money for the project. The target is $5.5 million. As of this writing the fund has so far raised $12.17.

After wide criticism, undeterred, she digs the hole deeper:

Double Standards Are Better Because You Get Twice As Many


To the Infotainment media, the crisis is not that thousands of illegal immigrants are showing up at the border, but rather that they might not be receiving adequate amenities. Thus these journalists are conveniently absolved of having to ponder whether Biden’s lax immigration policies could be partially driving for the spike in crossings.

With that I leave you with this Question: when will the media realize their 24/7 - 3 or 4 day coverage of a shooting by a mentally ill perp who shouldn't be loose in the public in the first place, only encourages copycats.  Or, is that the whole Idea??

Let Us Today Pay Visit to Our Old Friend Matthew for a Few Choice Tibbitts of Cultural Observation

 by Matthew Noto@My Planet, My Rules

"Your Overlord is a great believer in the old adage that if you live long enough you will see everything. He's also a believer in the axiom that history repeats itself, although that is conditioned by circumstances so that the repetition is never exact, but often close enough.  I also believe in the maxim that if you gather enough truly stupid people together in the same place, the resulting flash from the explosion of asshole can be seen in distant galaxies.

And so here we are, in this year of 2021 and all of these precepts have proven themselves true. It is both disheartening and quite amusing. Segregation is back in vogue.

Only the Modern Segregationist is now the former victim of the Old Segregationist, clinging to and advocating for a New Segregation as a means of...I'm not exactly sure. This past week, I have read stories of Segregated college graduations; I have read stories regarding Segregated public spaces; there is even a whiff of Segregation in the philosophical approaches people are taking to things like objective truth, history, arts, politics.

In the past, "separate but equal" was the hallmark of Jim Crow. I refer to the New Segregation as "Jim Slow".  Because it is being carried forward by perhaps some of the dullest intellects we're ever likely to see.

Most of these are charlatan race baiters and hustlers looking to make a quick buck and they are aided and abetted by the typical accessory-after-the-fact of the irrationally-guilty, white, upper-middle-class retard who is always more than happy to help the downtrodden remain downtrodden in the quest for a world without downtrodden. For if we didn't have downtrodden the upper-middle-class libtard would lose all status in society and have no one to virtue signal towards as a means of assuaging their irrational guilt, and no one to take advantage of in what is to supposed be an act of penance for the "crime" of being born non-downtrodden without having to sacrifice anything of actual value.

Now, I'm not about to plumb the depths of the stupid in the formulation that people who fought -- and often died -- for the cause of Civil Rights should find themselves living in a world wherein the inheritors and beneficiaries of their struggle should suddenly reject equality as an act of "equity", or whatever they're calling it this week. That's a scary place; it takes a real, weapons-grade doofus to believe that any community can cut itself off from interaction with another, and prosper, particularly when the communities involved are interdependent in so many ways.

If I had to take an educated guess at why an entire generation of people would go through the trouble of biting off their noses to spite their faces, I would probably look to two "separate but equal" (see what I did there?) catalysts: Demographics and an Achievement Gap."

Media Pressure Taking It's Toll on WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki



NB- Continuing her streak of awful, no good, very bad days at the White House podium, Press Secretary Jen Psaki crashed and burned on Monday as she tried to explain away the Biden administration’s crisis at the border, responding to probing questions from Fox’s Peter Doocy and a whole cast of colleagues with bald-faced lies about the border being secure and how Facebook and Instagram ads will help deter illegal immigration.

Psaki insisted that border reporting was disinformation, calling it “an inaccurate depiction of what's happening at the border” because “there's no change in policy,” “the border remains closed,” adults “should not attempt to cross illegally,” and people will only be allowed to stay under “narrow, narrow circumstances.”

Psaki stuck to her talking points, claiming families were only allowed to stay under “limited cases” and they’re tested for the coronavirus before being deported.

Uh-huh. Sure.

Reporters pressed Psaki on immigration included (in order): Bloomberg’s Josh Wingrove, NPR’s Tamara Keith, the Los Angeles Times’s Chris Megerian, and The Guardian’s David Smith. With a roster like this of liberal outlets grilling an administration they had a vested interest in supporting (and destroying Donald Trump), the honeymoon has to, at least some extent, be over.

Celebrities Rush to Condemn Anti-Asian Violence Now That the Perp is the Proper Color


Entertainment celebrities are rushing to blame the shooting deaths of eight people in the Atlanta on anti-Asian racism, despite the police indicating that race wasn’t the motive. According to a law enforcement spokesperson, the attack on 3 massage parlors killed 8 people, 6 of the dead were Asian.

Celebs like alleged comedian and former Snoop Dogg's cum receptacle Chelsea Handler, D list actor George Takei, and director Rob Reiner joined the stampede to the tweeter to blame the shootings on racism with no evidence. And of course, some celebrities even blamed Republicans and DJT.  Sheriff Frank Reynolds of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said the investigation so far appears the shootings weren’t racially motivated and the suspect was out to stop “a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate.”  He has been charged with 8 counts of murder.

The fact he is White is all Hollywood needed.

My question here is THIS: where in the hell have these hypocrite celebrities been all these months as elderly Jews were being beat on street corners, Asians beaten to the ground in broad daylight and protesters targeting Asian stores for looting raids and vandalism.  Need I answer that??

I do understand this is award season, and the entertainment industry are somewhat consumed with patting themselves on the back and being recognized by other elites for a movie or TV series who's audience wouldn't fill a half dozen good size college football stadiums. But now, we have a White Male perp..... with a gun!!!  Their Hypocrisy is astounding.

Biden Promotes Useful Idiot Who Failed to Take Down 45

 Voluntary Useful Idiots Vevgeny "Eugene" Vindman & Brother Porky Vindman

On February 7, 2020, two days after DJT was acquitted in round 1 of the sham impeachment circus, Vevgeny Vindman and his twin brother Porky Alexander Vindam were unceremoniously fired and quickly escorted off the White House grounds when they showed up for work.

The story the media put forth was of brothers troubled by a phone conversation, the first to raise an alarm about the president's phone call in which they claimed (solely on their own interpretation of his words) threatened to withhold Congressional allocated defense funds if Ukraine wouldn't gin up a fake investigation into Joe Biden and his son.  At the time, Eugene Vindman was a legal advisor to the National Security Council on which Porky Vindman was the Director of European Affairs. Very well placed. Who could dispute such Men?

Both brothers reported their concerns to John Eisenberg, the NSC's legal advisor. Eisenberg didn't share the brother's twisted interpretation of the conversation after review of their flight of fantasy. Apparently Eugene had been looking for attention and a vehicle for promotion.  So he chose to jump into the impeachment parade even though both participants of the conversation denied Vindman understood what was said.

His congressional testimony was unimpressive and practiced. The Media and Dems celebrated his heroism. 

Here is a passage from Vindman's 2020 Merit Evaluation:
"Over time, LTC [Y.] Vindman displayed increasingly poor judgment and failed to learn from his mistakes. On multiple occasions, his unprofessional demeanor made NSC staff feel uncomfortable. Despite express guidance from his supervisor, he continued to add himself to meetings with senior NSC staff where he did not add value. 
LTC [Y.] Vindman's substandard performance—his lack of judgment, failure to communicate well with his superiors, and inability to differentiate between legal and policy decisions—caused him to lose the trust of NSC senior leadership. … With additional counseling and experience, LTC [Y.] Vindman's performance may improve. He would benefit from additional experience in a slower paced work environment subject to less pressure and scrutiny. In time, he may become a better attorney."
According to Politico, after the election the evaluations having been deleted, Vindman's name was placed on a list of promotions headed to the Senate for approval after Sen. Tammy Duckworth threatened to hold up all promotions above lieutenant colonel if Secretary of Defense Mark Esper wouldn't assure her in writing that the White House hadn't intervened to keep Alex Vindman off the list — an assurance she never got.

Now Vindman has his promotion to full Colonel despite his part in deception, pushed heavily in public by the forces of overthrow, to help torpedo a sitting president.

Many Americans Will Have a Ralphie-Ovaltine Moment, and I Won't Feel for Them.

In many homes across the country the classic movie "A Christmas Story" is a holiday staple.  In this perfect little movie, Ralphie has several loss-of-youthful-innocence moments. One of the most poignant is his effort to decode a message to save radio heroine Little Orphan Annie. Ralphie eagerly awaited his special decoder rings arrival in the mail. This is important stuff!  He finally receives the decoder package and rushes off to sit in privacy and decode.  The narrator recounts the tension building as he deciphers. That’s until the whole message is clear.  A stunned Ralphie realizes he’s been duped. It’s another bittersweet moment where he is yanked into the sphere of mature knowledge.

For some Americans, their Ralphie-Ovaltine moment is coming.*   I don’t think it’s funny. I don’t envy them.  At some point, these Ralphies will be engaged, perhaps feverishly, with recollecting a lingering aspect of the chaos of the years of this present presidency, one they voted for in the belief he was their legally elected savior, and it’ll hit them.

Perhaps it will be when one of the many inside stories of the senile man they voted for was really a dupe.  A place holder.  One who did the left's bidding by appointments chosen for him by others that opened wide the doors and allowed the Marxist to march right into the seats of government.

Perhaps they’ll read a book about autocratic or Marxist propaganda. Or maybe they’ll read–or re-read–1984. They will see that a long and unfortunately reliable way to fool people is with what they now project onto many truths they oppose as "The Big Lie." They will come to know that if you tell a monster lie, a preposterous untruth, and repeat it enough, people will come to believe it.  Perhaps they will finally come to realize the Main Stream Media are just useful idiots, mouthpieces gleefully doing the left's bidding for a good ratings payoff, and not the real news after all.

Or perhaps it will be when they realize their freedoms have been eroded. That they too cannot buy books not approved of.  That they too cannot speak freely, or they too cannot go buy what they want, when they want.  Or perhaps it will be when they have no way to protect themselves and their families from a certain criminal element they for long so coddled as unjustly persecuted because of skin color.

Perhaps they will not have their moment for many years. Perhaps it will come when their kids or even grandkids will read about this era of the New Progressive America.  Perhaps it will be them that sees through the government approved lies about the integrity of the U.S. elections, and how many enablers went along with them to get votes. And perhaps a young face will look up to them asking, "You certainly didn’t believe that, did you?"  Faced with that question, what will our Ralphies do when they think back on the unpatriotic and undemocratic actions they approved of at the time, just to remove a president they were told they disliked because (fill in the blank). Or, even with so much time having passed, will they follow dutifully from the wreckage of integrity of the past years and simply lie themselves?

Regardless, I will not feel for these future Ralphies, as many will have a moment when their belief in a utopian progressive movement they went along with because it was cool, will be abruptly shattered, splintered by the searing shock of knowledge that the recent years had been largely a sham: a bloated, unamerican Marxist commercial.

No, I will not feel for them when they do.....

The 'Build Back Better' Bolsheviks


One of the most amusing things about the left is their absolute certainty that they know better than everyone else and that if only they ran the circus, everything would be perfect. I’m not 100 percent sure where this insanity comes from, except for saying that it’s common in philosopher-kings, i.e. people well enough off that they have no idea how most people live, where food comes from, etc.

Take one of those people and cram their heads full of theoretical knowledge. Particularly if you tell it to them as the revealed truth (as science is taught in most of our schools) and voila, someone who thinks they know everything and how everything should be done. 

Which brings us to the left’ present attempt to choke Western Civilization which, granted, has been as evil and murderous as EVERY OTHER CIVILIZATION IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, but it with much more efficiency, but has excelled on the good side of human civilization: namely getting everyone fed, clothed, and living with a modicum of dignity. Not perfectly, of course, and there have been some truly disgusting periods, but by and large Western Civilization and it's influence has made the world a better place.

However it’s not perfect. It’s also not entirely contained within the cavernous emptiness of the average lefty’s mind. So, of course, off with its head.

And the left is absolutely, thoroughly convinced that it can “build back better.” That the system in its mind will translate perfectly into the outside world and run amazingly. Well, as we have found in the last year, the left literally doesn’t know where its food comes from; can’t understand the relationship between rent and home ownership; between GDP and currency, between– None of it.

They know so little about the real world they just don’t know what they don’t know. America, and the entire west for that matter spent 60 years keeping a cancerous USSR at bay, only to run headlong at full speed toward becoming a gay retarded version of it.

POWER TO THE CORRECT PEOPLE!

Gentlemen, you can’t teach in here — this is the university!

Today’s college crybullies don’t want to struggle with thorny questions — or merely be presented with them. So they got a teacher canceled.
On September 7, former history professor Richard Taylor gave a presentation for his class “History 1000: Emergence of a Global Society,” according to a letter from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education sent to administrators on October 8. During the lecture, Taylor discussed the Columbian Exchange — the transfer of plants, animals, disease, people, and culture following Christopher Columbus’s voyages — as well as its positive and negative implications for world history. FIRE counsel Adam Goldstein told Campus Reform that the university never responded to the letter. 
The final slide of the presentation asked if the “positives justify the negatives.” In response, an Instagram account called “SJURadicals” claimed that Taylor was a “RACIST PREDATOR ON CAMPUS” who “forced students to formulate a pros and cons list concerning the topic of slavery.” Taylor — a former NYPD officer who served during the 9/11 terrorist attacks — was unceremoniously fired from his position over an October 9 Zoom meeting that lasted for five minutes, according to Taylor’s lawsuit.
St. John’s University — where the administration apparently allows radicalized, thuggish students to determine school policy — costs $43,160 per year for undergraduate studies. Assuming what you want to study has been pre-approved by the outrage mob.

Makes one long for the good old days of intellectual intercourse with students of free thinking and seasoned professors of learning before universities administrations became boiling pots of totalitarian troglodytes:

SCOTUS Opens Way For Students to Sue Over University Free Speech Violations


Hot Air- That gasp heard after this ruling dropped comes from every college and university with a “free speech zone” and policies that impose heckler’s vetoes.  Plaintiffs suing over restrictions on speech and religious expression on campus only need to establish “nominal damages” to gain standing, the Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision, not necessarily actual damages. That opens up a vast new field of litigation that attorneys all across the country will rush to meet. 

The 8-1 ruling in Uzuegbunam v Preczewski from Justice Clarence Thomas does not actually settle the case in favor of the students, but the writing is on the wall for Georgia Gwinnett College.

Normally, a plaintiff would have to establish at least some level of real damages to have standing in a lawsuit. Thomas rules here, and gets a surprising amount of consensus, that the violation of a core constitutional right is essentially enough of real damage to grant standing.

After this ruling on Uzuegbunam, it should have colleges and universities very, very worried — and might be the first real set of consequences for Academia after decades of forcing speech codes and silence on their students. Just the added risk of ending up in federal court might be enough of an incentive to force these universities and colleges to recalculate risk and reward.

Let’s hope that recalculation comes quickly, and both dissent and religious expression return to campuses as fast as possible.

Bubba & Shrub Return To Prominence in the WH

CNN's "Ms. Congeniality", Kaitlan Collins, reports the White House has confirmed 46* has returned two official Presidential portraits to the Grand Foyer after DJT moved them to a rarely used room, the Old Family Dining Room, a small space off the grand State Dining Room. He had them replaced with more popular Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt.

The George W. Bush portrait has replaced that of William McKinley, the nation's 25th president, who was assassinated in 1901, and the Bill Clinton portrait replaced one of Theodore Roosevelt, who succeeded McKinley.

The official Barky Obama portrait, yet to be unveiled, was rumored to be slated by DJT to hang near the official visitor's restrooms.

Is Biden Our Own Reincarnation of Russia’s “Goofy Drunk” President Boris Yeltsin


Boris Yeltsin won a surprise re-election in 1996 thanks to support from business and media oligarchs and US intelligence, only to find himself presiding over the same problems that his first term caused. Yeltsin’s popularity once again collapsed in his second term, opening the door to Vladimir Putin.

Is a similar situation brewing in the United States of America?  The media, intelligence agencies, and oligarchy have walked Joe Biden into the White House to reinstate the disastrous policies of the Obama era, which are precisely what led to Trump’s upset in 2016. 

The last remnants of the Soviet Union crumbled under Boris Yeltsin’s watch. His immediate predecessor, Mikhail Gorbachev, attempted to save and preserve the USSR by way of his twin Perestroika and Glasnost reforms. The failure of these reforms led to the dissolution of the “Evil Empire,” as the individual republics of the Federation began to secede as communism itself collapsed. The Soviet system had been creaking all throughout the 1980s, with a collapse in confidence in governing institutions and the economic system.

A divide grew between the party elites and the people who were left with little reason to “pretend to work while they pretend to pay us.” Bogged down in a fruitless war in Afghanistan, its global rival quickly sped ahead of it economically (sound familiar?). Increasingly unable to provide the most basic services for its people, the COVID-era USA likewise fails to protect its citizenry. No wonder that the rise in opiate and cannabis use and decline in US life expectancy neatly mirrors the alcoholism and shortened life expectancy in 1990s Russia.”

I have come to believe, for some strange reasons that escape me now, that there are some faithful readers of DMF who I sense are, shall we say, cultured gentlemen.  So I though I would draw upon on my ample education and Musicology background and bring a little dignity and culture to this joint. So pay attention!!

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) 

J.S.Bach as a composer had at his command the wealth of musical gifts, most superb contrapuntal feats as well as the most profound reserves of moving musical expression. He also possessed outstanding gifts as a virtuoso on the organ and harpsichord as well an innate and reliable knowledge about the acoustics of space. He did not need any complicated experiments but simply looked around a knew what to expect, as a practitioner through and through.

In Bach's own words: “It's easy to play any musical instrument. All you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.”

He knew of what he spoke. Bach fathered 20 children because he had no stops on his Organ.        ______________________________________________________________

Throwback Thursday: When Joe Biden Defeated Ebola

Not to worry America. We should be confident in Biden's leadership abilities as he showed in his command acumen during the epic fight against Ebola during his stint as Barky O's VP.

Kountdown To Kamala


As it has become obvious to all but the most soft skull observers, Joe Biden is a shadow of his former self.  Long gone is the aggressive, pugnacious, sleazy inquisitor known for shameful mistreatment of  Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in his confirmation hearings. Today, Americans see a President who is clearly mentally diminished and is getting worse on a daily basis.

During the campaign, when asked by a CBS News correspondent if he had taken a cognitive test, Biden snapped, "Why the hell would I take a test?" His last medical report was issued in December of 2019. While his doctor labeled 46* fit to perform as President, that view was not shared by other experts like Dr. David Scheiner, the former personal physician for Barack Obama who observed 46* for eight years, claimed that Biden was “not a healthy guy.” And Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician for President Obama and DJT, said Biden doesn't seem to have the cognitive ability to serve as head of state. He also reiterated a concern shared by many Americans, “I really think that he needs some type of cognitive testing before he takes over the reins as our Commander-in-Chief.”  Unfortunately, as far as we know, no such testing has been conducted. 

Clearly, Biden was chosen by Obama as VP because he was born in Pennsylvania and could theoretically appeal to white, working class voters in the Rust Belt. But during eight years on the same ticket, Barky did not value Biden as a Vice-President and never invited him to his personal quarters in the White House for a visit. Obama held Biden in such low regard that he did not encourage him to run for President in 2016. Instead, he endorsed Ma Clinton. 

After the election, his mental decline has become obvious.  He has not held a formal press conference and has only been interviewed a few times by friendly reporters. His one town hall meeting was broadcast on CNN, who still to this day uses most of its airtime fuming about DJT still breathing.

46's* condition has become so worrisome that 31 House Democrats are demanding the control of the “nuclear football” be removed from the sole authority of the President.  In the background, smiling and patiently waiting, is Vice President Kamala Harris.  To bolster her position, she has the full support of former President Obama and his political entourage. She knows that her ascendancy will come sooner rather than later. I believe it was the plan all along.

After all, if you were to criticize a black women president, what would they call you?? Harris is biding her time, as the countdown has begun.

Media Whines New Boyfriend Pays Them Little Attention


RS - It’s hard to believe but it’s only been a little over a month since Joe Biden took office. During that time, he’s signed a stack of executive orders that have resulted in everything from exploding gas prices to a surge of illegal immigration at the border, loss of untold thousands of jobs, and never mind his bombing of Syria.

When it came to transparency, we were assured that things were going to be different even though the Trump administration was, in actuality, incredibly transparent.  CNN’s chyron blared “how refreshing” about new Press Secretary Jen Psaki, while journalists everywhere proclaimed that honesty had returned to the White House. Instead, what the media got was a cliché ridden Orange Girl.  Psaki is terrible at her job, but it doesn’t matter because she has no need to actually be good at her job. She can throw the talking points out there knowing they’ll be dutifully repeated.

The news media fluffed Biden in unimaginable ways, making the bed they now have to lie in. You see, when you give a politician a pass on everything, do no investigative reporting on him, and essentially worship at his feet to defeat the orange man, that politician will not respect you when the time comes to press him on an issue. Biden feels completely comfortable snubbing the press, and they have no one to blame but themselves. 
Biden won’t release his virtual schedules, he hasn’t done a presser since taking office, and he hasn’t even been seen in public since Friday. What’s that say to you? Perhaps the lack of transparency is a necessity given Biden’s probable condition? I think that’s the real explanation here. Biden is only getting worse, and it’s going to get harder and harder for his handlers to cover it up.

A Good Monday Morning
