Like Don Quixote on a Three Legged Donkey

It seems so long ago Joe Biden raised his hand and bold face lied to God and the entire nation he would faithfully carry out the duty of defending the Constitution and Country from enemies both foreign and domestic. He has done neither.  His pack of rabid neo-marxist, racial identity adherence yelling "our democracy is in danger" placed in positions of power is not going unnoticed by anyone paying a least bit of attention. The dems party's control of the White House circus, Senate, and the House is just a few months old, and it looks like the fully expected incompetency has risen to view.  The border situation is intentional, and more and more Americans see it as such.

The debate over strong-arming away the ballot boxes is over for now, the so called infrastructure talks are still dragging on, and the evil (only when dems are in power) filibuster isn't going anywhere. Democrats seem lost about what to do next, except tear their hair out and point fingers at each other. Convinced just months ago they finally had the country firmly in their socialist's grasp, even with the media carrying their feces dems are now in pillow biting mode and privately said to be entertaining the possibility they may get slaughtered in mid-terms.

The party's strategies have hinged on getting the big parts of 46* agenda passed before the 2022 election, after which it might be too late. So confident they were, there doesn't seem to be much of a Plan B.

Plan A -- passing dramatic power grabbing legislation like climate change and emptying the national treasury in the name of compassion to buy voter loyalty depended on eliminating, or at least weakening, the filibuster.  Just to repeat the obvious: Democrats have just 50 votes and Kamala Harris' tie-breaker vote in the 100-member Senate; it takes 60 votes to overcome a filibuster.  Stymied by rules, democrats can't ram down the throats of America their bold and innovative cancerous racial tinged anti-capitalist agenda. And it is also worth noting Republicans also hold a majority of state legislatures and governorships.

There's always a danger when commenting on politics to believe that the way things are now is the way they will always be.  But it's also the case that the democrat's contingent of disturbed anti-Semitic, anti-White radicals pushing far left wing agendas, coming redistricting, and growing minority vote for Republicans scare the shit out of dem who face a future with an ever-narrower path to power.

In Clown World There is Always Another Act Warming Up Off-stage

The media is busy making the Vegetable-in-Chief sound like a statesman, which is far less exciting than it sounds. The novelty of having a dementia patient in the White House has worn off and we are left with the reality. That reality is that there was never any reason for Biden to be president, other than he was the only option they had to replace Trump. 
Once he scrawled what he thinks is his name on the executive orders they put in front of him, there was nothing left on the agenda. The long temper tantrum no longer has a reason, so the stasis of late empire decline is back, which means nothing happens. 
The only potential for something interesting to happen is if they snuff out the vegetable and install Harris. She is revealing herself to be dumber and shallower than anyone imagined. She is fumbling the softest of questions from the most obsequious of reporters. It seems impossible, but she may have less cognitive function than her boss and he is close to brain dead. - The Z Man

He Saw Biden in All of His Glory and His Loins Quivered


46* for the Nobel Peace Prize

Sadly some Kool-Aid drinker that writes for The Hill thinks 46* deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.  No, I’m not kidding. Let’s forget for a second that Biden probably can’t even say 'Nobel Peace Prize' without reading it off a teleprompter. So what has he done to deserves this award? 

To be fair, some other lint licker nominated Biden a while ago.  But Brent Budowsky at The Hill just thinks he definitely deserves to win. Why? Well, if you want the cliff notes version, it’s for no good reason.  But if you want to hear what Brent Budowsky has to say, it’s because of all he’s achieved and all he aspires to achieve.

Now, I would probably label his accomplishments as ''Was No one watching him??'' and his future accomplishments as "dear Lord, why is this happening??" But Brent seems optimistic. I'm not sure why. And let's not forget, Joe's former boss snagged a Peace Prize for nothing more than having a nice crease in his pants or big ears or something. I can't really remember.

Brent thinks that after Trump dividing us (Biden would never say ANYTHING divisive, racist, or inappropriate, I mean besides everything he’s consistently said over the past 4 or 5 decades) Biden is restoring America’s leadership.

I figured Brent made this dumbass statement BEFORE Biden embarrassed himself and all of us on the world stage at the G7 summit in England or when he broke protocol three times with the Queen. But nah. This ratchet opinion piece came out yesterday morning.

Clearly this Brent Budowsky lives in a different universe than us. He sees Biden as compassionate and powerful. I only see a bumbling idiot.  And I do try to watch various news sources so I get a more balanced understanding of what’s going on in the world.  Biden is always an idiot.  Even CNNLOL recently ran a segment how unprecedented it is for the President’s handlers to prevent him from answering questions, literally screaming at him to stop talking.  I guess that’s all that power and confidence Brent mentioned.

If somehow Joe did manage to mumble his way into a Nobel Peace Prize, all it will tell me is that the award has gone the way of the Times Person of the Year Award.  Everything is meaningless.  Kinda of like Victoria’s Secret getting rid of their angels and hiring the flat chested dyke Megan Rapinoe and some plus sized chick to sell lingerie. That’s going to work out well. Or like when YouTube awarded YouTube with the YouTube free speech award.

But Brent saw Biden in all of his glory and his loins quivered. There’s a leader and a bastion of hope for humanity, Brent thought. He deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, Brent thought.

Maybe This is Why Kamala Told Them "Don't Come".

It seemed crazy enough when it became clear that President Porchlight was just going to undo anything Donald Trump did as president, no matter how efficacious for the country because it was something Trump did.
 
Having accomplished most of those things, what’s left for the Loki Administration to do? Why, look around at the mess and figure out ways to make the rubble bounce. -Vodka Pundit
 

That's cute the way The State Dept. & Homeland Security have changed the language "illegal border crossing" to "irregular migration".

Today in Victimhood Olympics

The above tweet is from a retweet by James Woods of one of our virtue signaling gender confused fellow citizens.  A male who believes they are female and an inspiring journalist, who seems to have a lack of real world awareness as many of his her their generation do about what makes the world go around.

This tweet says a lot about it's author. So I have endeavored to provided some understanding to this poor soul as to why they were ignored by the captains of capitalism and not awarded their desired timely employment. Because if I didn't I would feel I failed humanity. I'm like they you know.

* You lament about diversity and fair shakes in the media. Pay attention. They don't apply you. You're White sweetie.

* Your Virtue signaling isn’t valued in the real world. It's a toy of the left, advertisers and social media. It severs no real world usefulness other to make you look stupid to reasonable people

* Here on planet earth announcing one’s pronouns is more of a warning than a piece of information.

* Adding pronouns to Resumes and Cover Letters may be construed as a structural bias in your reporting, and represent a questionable mental state. (see Jim Acosta)

* Pronouns are not objective information. It's an attempt to control how people are allowed to speak to you. A sign of High-drama people with all the trappings of an overindulged, “woke” generation.

* And of course there is always a chance it has nothing to do with your pronouns at all. You could just sucked at your job of journalism.

* Personally I think it was her moustache.

Using pronouns is bad enough on social media. It's freaking obnoxious. If you don't know better than to do something so unprofessional on a resume & cover letter, then you don't need to be working in the field of journalism. There are already enough political activist journos.

You may as well self-identify as Infrared, Ultraviolet or Orange for my "race," and a idiosyncratic pedantic didactic trans Dyke with a penis because I do not like men.  You will probably have just as much chance as an unknown snagging a job in media.  Most organizations that readily employ people who declare their pronouns AND have no fear of going broke are state funded. 

Pronouns indicate someone who is likely to spend time looking for offense, trying to change company policy or trying to get someone fired when something upsets them.  I shy away from employing anyone who I felt might be offended by the smallest error someone made in their conversation. Many employers shy away from resumes with pronouns because the people that make such an issue of being "politically correct" are usually the first ones in HR kicking up a fuss over some perceived injustice.

I have no problem with live and let live. Just don't make such a GD show of it.

Lessons Learned. Lessons Unheeded

If you were educated in the West, your history lessons taught you that totalitarian regimes always end up ‘coming for your children’.  One need only to recall pictures of Adolf Hitler inspecting the child soldiers making a last stand for the Third Reich.  Or we can remember the famous story of Pavlik Morozov, one of many Stalinist-era teens who denounced his father and reported him to the NKVD for criticizing the regime.  The lesson that we were taught was that these totalitarians purposely weakened the bond between parents and child so as to neuter the family as a rival center of loyalty. The state had to be the only organization that could command one’s devotion.

We scoffed at the notion that it could happen here. But it is happening here.

One example is the overwhelming triumph of LGBTism, and now the fad of transgenderism is the triumph of the individual over the family, and the triumph of the state over it as well. By the abuse of the education system turning children against their parents through approval of toxic ideologies, the state creates willing Janissaries, fanatical in their determination that its the family that is wrong.
 
Abigail Shirer has written an incredible piece on what happens when the state apparatus comes for your children in the name of transgenderism. In some cases the ability of the state to wrestle away children as young as 13 from their families without the permission of the family is simply a 21st century version of the Devshirme (Blood-Tax), the Ottoman practice of kidnapping Christian boys, circumcising them, converting them to Islam, and training them to become Janissaries for the Sultan.

Critical Race Theory is now the new frontier of totalitarianism, lead by the same proponents of other toxic ideologies. Only this time self hate and racial division are the platform the state attempts to steal the children.

Children you should be afraid of if they succeed.

There Was A Time People Like This Would Be Ostracized and Resoundingly Told To Go To Hell

I saw “dozens of American flags,” which was “just disturbing”
 

This made me think of Katha Pollit's famous reaction to flag displays after the 9/11 attacks. Here: "Put Out No Flags" (The Nation, September 20, 2001):

"My daughter, who goes to Stuyvesant High School only blocks from the World Trade Center, thinks we should fly an American flag out our window. Definitely not, I say: The flag stands for jingoism and vengeance and war. She tells me I’m wrong–the flag means standing together and honoring the dead and saying no to terrorism......."

"It seems impossible to explain to a 13-year-old, for whom the war in Vietnam might as well be the War of Jenkins’s Ear, the connection between waving the flag and bombing ordinary people half a world away back to the proverbial stone age. I tell her she can buy a flag with her own money and fly it out her bedroom window, because that’s hers, but the living room is off-limits."

Media Already Beginning to Push Excuses For Dems Potential Losses in '22 & '24 With Kooky Conspiracy Theories

Anyone with the intestinal fortitude to endure an early morning trip around the TV dial knows the mostly female former weather girls and failed actors pretending to be pseudo-journalist of the early morning shows for the most part set the news cycle for the day. Between cute cat videos and interviewing authors no one has heard of,  since the age of anti-Trump always wander off the rails into territory of which the don't belong. National Politics.

But it's now their job to help keep eyes off the stumbling inept Biden administration that increasingly resemble a grievance infused adolescent student council from a school for troubled youth in a runaway car speeding down hill.  Over on cable news, this is the all day norm.

None have produced so much conspiracy nonsense with so little available IQ then the confused mouth breathers at MSNBC.

This being the month of June means the 18 month run-up to the midterms have official begun. And this cycle, with the dems in justified fear of America waking up and their party getting their clock cleaned November 2022, will be pulling out all the stops. This mornings Squinty & Meat Puppy Show is the type of BS we all can expect here on out: Conspiracy. Conspiracy Everywhere!

Mika kicked things off by reading at length from a column by Yale professor Timothy Snyder, wherein he spun his conspiracy theory.
 

According to NewsBusters: Snyder is the same guy who in 2017 predicted that Trump would stage the equivalent of the Nazi Reichstag fire by declaring a state of emergency and taking full control of the government. That of course never happened, but Snyder's poor powers of prognostication didn't deter the Morning Joe crew from buying into his latest scaremongering theory.

In his column, Snyder foresees nothing short of "the collapse of the United States." He says he wrote his column upon awakening from a nightmare in which he was visiting the Empire State Building when a plane crashed into it. He knew the building was going to collapse, but people wouldn't listen to him and instead just go about their business.

"Wokeness" Has Become a Warm Blanket for all the Jealous and Weak and Insecure

For what ever reason, to some ‘Wokeness’ aims may be sincere. But it's method is pure madness. It associates itself with breaking away from any kind of rationality and logic and the complete subjugation of truth and the self to emotions. Its hatred towards of everything that has been carefully built up through long established truth and tradition is an act of moral vandalism. It’s not all doom and gloom though. Take your eyes off your Twitter stream or even better switch off all your social media and look around. It’s important to take a breath.

Hard as it may be in the echo chambers of the left and the right to understand, ‘wokeness’ is only a thing in the Anglo-American world. It has made negligible impact elsewhere so far (yes, it’s making inroads into Europe but not as much as Americans might think). Even in France, the country that gave birth to the very ideas upon which the foundations of the ideology of wokedom rests (the ideas of Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze that traveled to the Californian campuses since the 1970s), ‘wokedom’ hasn’t taken root. Indeed even France’s leftist intellectuals (many of them direct disciples of Foucault and Derrida) are horrified at how mangled and misunderstood their masters’ ideas have permeated into the rot of American intellectual discourse that’s now being drip fed into the cultural mainstream.

I sometimes wish I could take some of these white and black SJWs and show them the world (I’m pretty sure most don’t travel or ever engaged with other cultures or even learn another language). To show them how the world they inhabit is so shallow and inconsequential. Go to Africa, South Asia, the Middle East, or the Far East, and many just have no idea what ‘being woke’ is. More importantly, they do not care. Their struggles and challenges are a world away from the skin deep victimhood fueled tantrums of the spoiled Anglo-American millennial middle classes.

Those that do know (the ones who travel to the West) are shocked. My Japanese friend from school days in Europe look at ‘Cancel culture’ and how it is used to destroy people, publicly humiliate them just like intellectuals were during the Cultural Revolution in China. There is no grace, no forgiveness, just sadistic pleasure in personal annihilation. They worry that the West - whom they respect and admire is on a self-inflicted path to catastrophic destruction.

Some say that ‘wokeness’ is the new religion of the aimless white middle class millenials and ‘social justice’ is its new god. I can see the analogy except in one crucial and important aspect. Unlike Christianity which grew from the ground up through the truly marginalized - women and slaves - to change the world, wokeness has always been a top down movement, just like all the ill-fated and blood soaked ‘isms’ of the past (jacobinism, socialism, and communism). False gods will always fall.

Let me be clear, there is nothing wrong with political activism per se, it is a mark of an engaged citizen and a good neighbor to stand up for things that are unfair and unjust. But when political activism is based on destructive emotions, we all lose.

I certainly don’t hate leftist woketards because hate is such an unhelpful emotion.  However, when your whole identity is based on emotional reasoning rather than a rational or empirical one then that is hard going. Nor do I blame the woke left. That would be too easy. They are just weak jealous fools.  For the most part, I blame the rest of us because we as a collective have become intimidated, loosening our grip and relinquished rightful claims to our inherited history, cultural traditions, and unique national heritages.

Tony The Martyr

EARL Done This

Tony appeared on Ricky Maddow's Conspiracy Central show Friday and laid claim to his creds as a Martyr by proclaiming the recent criticisms of him are “really very much an attack on science,” and “the thread going through what’s happening now is very much an anti-science approach."  Fauci added that the origin of the virus is an important question, but “it is being approached now in a very vehement way, in a very distorted way, I believe, by attacking me.”

We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Reality:
"Fauci emails are showing three key things:
* It was a conflict of interest for Fauci and the science community 
* Anything Trump said, the Liberal media pushed the opposite 
* CCP propaganda 
"We have a whole ecosystem of scientists in the United States and around the world that are financially, because of the grant monies, professionally and reputationally heavily invested in this type of research and had every incentive to make sure that the narrative they were wrong and that it leaked out — was suppressed." -  Rep.Mike Waltz 
Waltz’s remarks follow the publication of a Vanity Fair article which suggested State Department investigators were “repeatedly advised not to open a "Pandora’s box" in terms of investigating the origins of the Chinese coronavirus.

Throw Back Thursday - A Woman Should Be The First Person to Step Foot on Mars


From the Dank Archives of DMF 2018

"Allison McIntyre, who oversees NASA's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility in Houston, the home base for astronaut training, said it's only fair that a woman takes humanity's first steps on Mars. Twelve humans have set foot on a planetary body beyond Earth. All 12 were men, walking on the Moon during the late 1960s and early 1970s as part of the Apollo missions.  
NASA's first female astronaut to fly in the space shuttle, Sally Ride, notoriously had to explain that she wouldn't need 100 tampons for a week in space, in 1983. McIntyre says, "We have female astronauts, but we haven't put a woman on the Moon yet, and I think the first person on Mars should be a woman." 
________________________________________________________ 

I have to say, Oh Hell Yeah! I wholeheartedly agree with Ms. McIntyre. And it's About Damn Time! So in solidarity with my sisters in the struggle against the patriarchy, I have a few ideas myself who should be the first woman on Mars.  In fact, I think we should send a whole crew of females. I would throw my bra into the ring for a chance, but seeing it would probably be a one way trip in all.....uh....and I have seen the movie 'Alien'.....I remember I have some important things to attend to that weekend.  

Here are a few of my nominees for crew. You can leave your own suggestions for who you think should be the celebrated 'First Lady of Mars' in the comments below. Just don't be dissin' your Beloved Editrix or my sisters with some lame-ass women driver jokes........

The Lincoln Project Continues Habit of Stepping on Rakes


Yesterday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a bill effectively banning confused men who think they are women from competing in women’s sports in the state of Florida.  As expected, DeSantis’ signing the law on first day of the “Pride Month” triggered the Usual Suspects, including the unhinged fanatics at the ironically named Human Rights Campaign, which is as strong an indicator as there can be that DeSantis absolutely did the right thing.

During the signing ceremony of a law that very well may effect her own life in the future, the governor’s young daughter Madison was next to him and handing him the pens with which to sign the bill: 


For reasons only known to him, Lincoln Project's Stuart Stevens, one of the more outfront members of the scummy group thought it’d be a good idea to use DeSantis’ daughter as a weapon with which to attack the popular Governor:
"I wonder when this girl grows up, how she’ll feel about being used as a prop in selling a piece of legislation that hurt people she is likely to go to school with, work with, go to church with. Using kids to sell hate for political gain is a favorite @GovRonDeSantis move."
That a member of a group that turned a blind eye for months as allegations swirled around them of predatory grooming behavior towards young men were being made against Lincoln Project would feign he cares for the young daughter of a governor he despises solely because of his political alliance with DJT was not lost on the politically aware who took to the tweeter to absolutely burn his ass for his lack of self-awareness and audacity.

A sample:


She’s a child, and Stevens and his colleagues at the Lincoln Pervert League should do the right thing and respect that instead of projecting their obvious inadequacies onto Gov. DeSantis. But then again, we know respecting underage kids (and women, for that matter) is not the Lincoln Project’s strong suit, so we shouldn’t really expect any better from this clown or his motley troupe of corrupt prevs.

The big ones are beginning to bite off their own.......

“What I want to fix your attention on is the vast, overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence – moral, cultural, social, or intellectual.  And is it not pretty to notice how ‘democracy’ (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient Dictatorships, and by the same methods? 
You remember how one of the Greek Dictators (they called them “tyrants” then) sent an envoy to another Dictator to ask his advice about the principles of government.  The second Dictator led the envoy into a field of grain, and there he snicked off with his cane the top of every stalk that rose an inch or so above the general level. 
The moral was plain.  Allow no preeminence among your subjects.  Let no man live who is wiser or better or more famous or even handsomer than the mass.  Cut them all down to a level: all slaves, all ciphers, all nobodies.  All equals. Thus Tyrants could practice, in a sense, ‘democracy.’ 
But now ‘democracy’ can do the same work without any tyranny other than her own.  No one need now go through the field with a cane.  The little stalks will now of themselves bite the tops off the big ones.  The big ones are beginning to bite off their own in their desire to Be Like Stalks.........”

A Perfect Metaphor for What's Happened to Journalism Over the Past Few Decades.

The Gilded Temple to Themselves "The Newseum" Fails and is Stripped of it's Facade 

It was the Gilded Monument to Journalistic Vanity. A museum immortalizing their Courage and Virtue in Pantheon-esque marble, created upon the premise that the news media weren't boastful enough of their accomplishments, that reporters weren't egotistical enough about their importance that a monument to their mighty works was to be.

Dubbed by even the Washington Post in 2018 as "A Slow Motion Disaster" for the hefty price of $24.95 a head.  You didn't get to witness such historical media exhibits such as a 5,000 year old cuneiform clay tablet announcing Sargon I ascension to the Throne, nay!  But what the few who wandered in did get to see was the Watergate break-in door, props and costumes from the movie 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy', a mock-up of Tim Russert’s office, posters and reporters’ notebooks from the Ferguson protests, Andy Rooney‘s typewrite, a Boston Globe reporter’s running shoes, hundreds of press passes, and for some strange reason, even Bono’s jacket, and much more.

There was a time when the American News Media was who most of the world looked to for the best example of unvarnished truth as could be had.  But then came the advent of 24 Hr. news broadcast and with it the rise of the overly self-important media reporters, high payed on-air talking heads celebrities and an undeniable political bias.

So when we see such arrogant people who deem themselves higher then us because they, and they only hold the cup of truth, can we not feel a bit triumphant when they stumble and fall into a pile of their own excrement and their temple to themselves fails and raised to the ground. 


"They should replace it with a monument to the stunning and brave journalists who stood up against Trump! Who risked their lives to give us nothing but the facts!! Heroes, all of them."

Amazen and the Claustrophobic Broom Closet of Despair

For years, one of the largest companies in the world has been criticized for the way they treat their workers. Yes, they did up the salaries of their warehouse workers to $15 an hour, but are still under constant video and audio surveillance, and there's the stories of the notorious pee bottles, etc., etc.  But Amazon is hoping to change all of that. No, not by paying people more or actually listening to workers about what would make things better for them. But by installing dystopian despair booths, about the size of a phone booth or old timey police box, at their warehouses where employees can go to scream their lungs out do "mindfulness exercises', and likely while being monitored by central scrutiny, as they always are.

And what could possibly be more calming than a small, windowless confined space?  Not to mention the fact that everyone can see you walk into it and will probably be going, "Oh guess who is losing their shit and needs to do some mindfulness exercises," and that would be literally all you could think of while in there, other than the possibility of the door getting stuck and you running out of air and dying of asphyxia. 

The original tweet featuring the 24 sec. video below was met with such horror and mockery on social media that the company deleted it after a day.
 

It's cute that they're "trying," but perhaps they could start instead with not requiring employees to pull 10 and a 1/2 hour shifts, allow them bathroom breaks so they don't have to pee in bottles and giving them breaks longer than 30 minutes when it takes some that long to walk to and from the break room.

And maybe, just maybe pay drivers a better wage so they aren't pissed and in a hurry all time and don't act like Tom Brady dropping a dime to his favorite receiver in the corner of the end zone when delivering my new coffee maker to my porch!!!!

Having 7 of my own employees, I can tell you those things would certainly be of more help to workers than shoving them into a claustrophobic broom closet of doom with sky and clouds painted on the ceiling where they can do "mindfulness exercises" as their supervisors watch the clock like a hawk.........

If a Tree Farts in the Forest, Does it Make a Sound?

Ecologist Melinda Martinez Measures “Tree Farts” with Gas Analyzer

I gotta say, you really have to believe in yet to be proven pseudointellectual theories and endeavor to save mother earth from natural climate change to attend university for 4 to 8 years only to find yourself voluntarily slogging through a snake infested marsh in the middle of nowhere, knee deep in mud toting a gas analyzer to measure tree flatulence. 

According to experts on the subject, gases released by dead trees — dubbed “tree farts” — account for a good portion of greenhouse gases. While these emissions pale in comparison with other sources, an accurate accounting is necessary to get a full picture of where those climate-warming gases are coming from.

A team of ecologists in North Carolina went sniffing for tree farts  which form when saltwater from rising sea levels sinking shorelines poison a woodland, leaving behind a marsh full of standing dead trees called 'Ghost Forrest". They tell us dead trees decay and stop taking up carbon dioxide through photosynthesis so the results are going to be a major greenhouse gas source.

In the grand scheme of carbon emissions, ghost forests role may be minor. Tree flatulence has nothing on those dangerous cow farts.  A single prolific gas spewing bovine fart machine can emit up to 27 grams of methane, a far more potent gas than CO2 per hour. But we are told accounting for even minor sources of carbon is said to be important for fine-tuning our understanding of the global carbon budget, what ever that is.

Obama Commerce Dept. Holdover Ran Very Own Illegal Spy Agency During DJT Administration


With all the nonsense we'd learned about the corruption and illegal activities during the Obama Administration, like spying on AP and Fox reporters and family, nothing should really surprise us about what comes to light out of the Obama years in the WH.

And now we have the Washington Post revealing a real life version of a movie mall cop gone mad with his very limited power, with a little Watergate burglar intrigue mixed in.  A supervisor of an "obscure security unit" in the Commerce Department who got some funny ideas about what his job was supposed to be.

The "Investigations and Threat Management Service" (ITMS) is supposed to be concerned with keeping "Commerce officials and facilities safe".  But under supervisor George Lee, ITMS morphed into a kind of counterintelligence outfit, but without any actual legal authority to do covert spy stuff and shit, routinely overstepping its legal limits without meaningful oversight from within Commerce since the mid-2000s.  Under Lee, the unit did investigations of Commerce employees and regular Americans social media, based mostly on whatever whims Lee might have.

This has the potential to make a really good dark farce, with the right director and screenplay. Almost everything about Lee's attempt to build his own personal KGB seems ploddingly amateurish.  One former supervisor told WAPO that the outfit's operations seemed like "someone watched too many 'Mission Impossible' movies."

ITMS agents did nighttime searches of offices, including looking in storage areas without permission, and even picking locks.  They were all kitted out in Gordan Liddy spy gear, too!
The unit’s equipment for covert searches, kept in duffel bags, included latex gloves, shoe coverings, hairnets, balaclava-style face masks and a lock-picking set, according to a current Commerce employee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss unit operations.  During some covert searches, investigators wore the face masks and avoided or blocked the view of security cameras.
OK, but did they pretend they were dodging lasers, like Tom Cruise??

Lee even design his own Derp State training program some said felt as if he learned it all by reading a book on it the day prior to class.  

Former investigators offered all sorts of charming examples of ITMS doing investigations for which it had little or no authority, like monitoring Commerce employees' emails to see if they were in contact with any foreign types, and opening files on people who sent completely nonthreatening mail to the Commerce secretary.
In one instance, the unit opened a case on a 68-year-old retiree in Florida who tweeted that the census, which is run by the Commerce Department, would be manipulated "to benefit the Trump Party!"  In another example, the unit searched Commerce servers for particular Chinese words, documents show. The search resulted in the monitoring of many Asian American employees over benign correspondence.
Now that DJT is gone and Mr. Lee relieved of his duties, the Biden Administration ordered ITMS to pause all investigations on March 10, and on May 13, ordered the suspension of all activities.  46* may not want any further stories about the activities of Lee and any activities during the last administration that may have enriched, or embarrass the democrat party in any way to come to light.  But if it does, it promises to be equal parts hilarious and cringeworthy.

This is the Kind of News That Would Drive the MSM Into a Frenzy for 24-48 Hrs During Last Administration.

The Media Now Have Deployed Knee Pads and Blinders

You remember - The media orgasms...the days of endless expert panel discussions by people no one had heard of,  the self-righteous criticism like Scarborough's rants on Squinty & Meat Puppet in the morning, to the constant accusations of racism from Don lemon at night over almost weekly headlines. 

You remember - U.S. District Judge says DJT's executive order "does not appear to serve the overall public interest." or Judge overturns restrictions on travel from seven known hotbeds of terrorism. (because Judge believes DJT's is racist). Or Judge Overturns DJT's denial of funds to illegal sanctuary cities who refuse to comply with Federal Law.  Wall to wall 24/7 manufactured outrage at the least little thing, minute to minute updated coverage for days on end.  But now, they have all gone deaf and dumb.

Case in Point: Judge Blocks Biden Administration From Doling Out Grants Based on Race, Gender.

A federal judge in Texas last week blocked the Biden administration race obsessed SJW appointees from prioritizing grants in a COVID restaurant relief program by race or gender. At issue is the fact the Biden Small Business Administration is prioritizing restaurants that are owned and controlled by women, veterans, and people THEY deem as “socially and economically disadvantaged.” The policy actively excludes entire classes of Americans not mentioned in the “priority” group (White Folks and Asians) who are also suffering significant financial losses caused by the pandemic.

In the plaintiff's suit, Philip Greer, a cafe owner, it is stated:
“The Small Business Administration lurches America dangerously backward, reversing the clock on American progress, and violating our most sacred and revered principles by actively and invidiously discriminating against American citizens solely based upon their race and sex. This is illegal, it is unconstitutional, it is wrong, and it must stop.”
Attorneys for the SBA asserted in a response to the motion for a Restraining Order that Greer lacked standing because he "hadn’t suffered an injury that was traceable to the priority period" and also argued the prioritization adopted, while being "race-conscious," don’t violate the constitutional guarantee of equal protection.

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor shot down that unconstitutional shit real quick:
"The context is clear: the evidence that Greer’s restaurant lost nearly $100,000 in gross revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic and [his] attestation that he has prepared an application and is otherwise eligible are sufficient."
America First Legal, which is representing the plaintiff, said in a statement:
"The facts of the case are straightforward: hard-hit American restaurant owners can apply for urgently-needed pandemic relief. But the government puts some owners at the back of the line for access to a limited pool of money based on their race. 
So we are presented with a simple but vital question: can the government reward or punish American citizens based upon the color of their skin or the ancestry of their families? We all know the answer. Racial discrimination, in any form, is legally and morally wrong. It is un-American. It is unconscionable. And it must be stopped."

No national news lede story of court issuing major blow to Biden administration's overt racist initiative .....no droning 20 something experts on CNN opining the unconstitutionality.. ......no raving panel discussions of Biden's bigoted intentions. Just crickets.

House Dems Vote to Feed Media It's Pre-Midterm Outrage Diet

House Democrats just passed legislation creating a 9/11-style commission regarding the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. It’s just their latest effort to re-traumatize the American psyche after a failed impeachment with fabricated evidence to excommunicate their political opponents, branding any and all on the political right who dared raise concerns about chaotic November election procedures as complicit in the horror.

Most House Republicans appear to see the commission for what it is: the 2021 version of 2017’s special counsel probe run by Robert Mueller, another excuse to use the weapons of law enforcement against Democrats’ political enemies.  No self-respecting Republican would vote for the commission as proposed. The absence of any investigation into any of the widespread political violence outside of the Jan. 6 riot exposes it as deeply unserious and, worse, deeply exploitive.

By nearly every metric, however, the prolonged summer of rage excused, endorsed, and encouraged by Democrats and their allies in legacy media was far worse.

Most conservatives are not in denial about what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6. In fact, the events were roundly condemned by conservatives, who remained consistent in vilifying all political violence, a stark contrast to leftists, who broadly only came out against political violence the single time last year the disorder ensued from their opponents. There is no shortage of double-standards between response to the riot at the Capitol and the fiery riots declared “mostly peaceful” just outside that same complex in what became a familiar scene in communities across the country. Double standards that expose the gaslighting nature of the Jan. 6 commission also remain at play in the prosecution of those charged for their participation. 

American Greatness Senior Contributor Julie Kelly has documented the experiences of more than three dozen people rotting in solitary confinement awaiting trial for months while the Biden Justice Department grants leniency for individuals charged in Portland’s insurrectionist riots.

Given the nature of the commission’s scope, however, tied exclusively to the violence on Jan. 6 without any probe of the events that normalized such violent protest, the commission will merely be a tool of the left to attack the right.

The commission is nothing more than further exploitation of the Capitol riot and the continued dismissal of their own deadly record of rage

After How They Got Disgraced...This is just Creepy.


Almost from the very start, The Lincoln Project came across as shady and scummy with something to hide. You may have noticed that you've not seen the Lincoln Lads Rick Wilson or Steve Schmidt shooting the shit on CNN or MSNBC with Don Lemon or Joe Scarborough or Jon Avlon or Nicole Wallace or Brian Williams lately.

The Lincoln Project was the most obvious and glaring fraud in modern history due to the utter gullibility of Liberals and Never-Trumpers. First the group was exposed as grifters funneling the projects money to pay themselves and companies its founders ran, and then came the bombshell pedophile scandal.

It now turns out that an offshoot of TLP known as the Franklin Project is coming on Tuesday and it's aimed at children.  Yes, the grifting pedophiles of The Lincoln Project join in the Left's Poisoning children's education.
The Lincoln Project, who's entire existence is for their slezzy manner of getting under people's skin, calling out their enemies, and making ads good enough to earn them almost 3 million followers, now want to help children understand Civics and define "civility" in our society.

Does this tweet sound like it comes from the kind of people worthy of lecturing anyone on what civility means, least of all children?
The Franklin Project plans to develop and provide a K-12 civics education program it will offer free to local school districts. It also will establish the "Democracy Corps," a hyper-local movement spread across the nation "that will advocate for and amplify the values upon which America was founded. The project does not plan to align with or endorse candidates, offering a true big tent to anyone feeling misrepresented by either major party, or left out of the current political system.  The Franklin Project will be a 501(c)(4) nonprofit. Such so-called dark money advocacy organizations do not have to disclose their donors."

The Lincoln Man-Boy Love Project pedophiles shouldn't be allowed near any child. And anytime some group advocates for "nationwide" anything, indoctrination is replacing education.
