Pass The Hot Sauce...

First Speechwriter: “We need to figure out a way to make all these Hispanic people we’re lumping together under ‘Latinx’ feel unique.”

Second Speechwriter: “That’s like Mexican or something, right? Don’t they all eat tacos?”

First Speechwriter: “Yeah, but… needs more oomph… BREAKFAST tacos! They’ll eat that up. And they'll swoon at Dr. Jill's progressive vision!

Squinty & Meat Puppet and Co. Beclown Themselves Standing Up for Kamala

Monday, our favorite kickball, the blathering duo of Squinty Joe Scarborough and Brain Cell Mika Brzezinski, served up yet another three hour-long rant about the upcoming midterms, anti-Republican rhetoric, and jokes amongst liberal media hyenas about how those in opposition to them are "conspiracy theorists," "freaks," and "weirdos."

The bitter former Florida political loser further debased himself by taking aim at someone far more successful in Sunshine State politics, Governor Ron DeSantis (R). He then bloviated about January 6, saying that even with an administration who is putting financial stress on Americans, the voters will still not trust Republicans.

He fails as usual to mention they don't trust dems either.

“These guys are wackos and insurrectionists and freaks, I’m certainly not going to trust them to run the country.”

It's okay Joe. Really. It's Okay with us.

Squinty Joe went as far to say the extremely unlikeable and unpopular Vice President Kamala Harris beats Ron DeSantis “in one poll after another” (?) despite her constantly getting bad press. It’s funny because most of this bad press comes from Joe & Mika's regular S&MP minion Jonathan Lemire's own Politico website, where he holds the title of White House bureau chief. His colleagues have increasingly trashed the Vice President and even told the public what a bitch she is to work with.

But according to Lemire, democrats have a “sense of eternal gratitude to Joe Biden for defeating Donald Trump in 2020 but thinking perhaps he is not the right guy to now defeat Trumpism.” 

Because we all know “Trumpism” is the main concern for Americans right now, not crime in the streets or their unnecessary financial stress.

Lemire then claimed the Republicans “seem out of step,” and voters will see that in November despite there being supposed frustration caused by the SCOTUS decisions, the January 6 hearings, and other matters far from Americans’ minds right now such as the pandemic. In terms of blame, Lemire absolved his friends in the Biden administration.

There may not be a midterm "Wave" as predicted by pollsters as of now, but one thing will be for sure. As long as dems are led the mental infirm tards, Biden/Harris, they are the real losers.

DJT Lives Rent-free in Biden's Head, and It Seems the Lease Has Just Been Renewed.

We are only a year-and-a-half into Biden’s presidential tenure, and things are not going well to say the least. That’s the opinion of a full 85 percent of the Americans from both parties polled who believe the country is headed for the ditch. So, what is a president to do when his whole  administration is collapsing around him? Blame Donald Trump, of course.

Talking nonsense in Ohio yesterday to an audience of paid to be there union members, Joe had this to say:
"The previous administration lost more jobs on its watch than any administration since Herbert Hoover. That's a fact. All based on failed trickle down economics...We came in with a different economic vision."
Yeah, how is that "different economic vision" working out Joe? Sky-rocketing inflation, the deep drop in the stock market, record gas prices, all the foreign policy fuck ups? GD Putz!

I get that Biden’s brain is mush, but you’d think he’d remember the global pandemic that took place in 2020 before spouting off about job losses. State-level lockdowns happened across the country, putting the economy into an artificial coma. Apparently, Biden recalls none of that though, instead choosing to blame “trickle-down economics” for the job losses under DJT, a contention completely devoid of reality.

Never mind that the economy was booming under DJT until COVID hit, making Biden’s critique rather absurd. To put it succinctly, when the current president is spending all his time obsessing over the former guy, that current president is losing.

Biden may not perceive much reality these days given his mental decline, but he knows enough to know he’s been an abject failure. With no accomplishments to talk about, all he has left is making awkward, false mentions of Donald Trump.

While I don’t agree with Biden’s politics one bit, it’s still sad to watch a guy crumble like this. He can barely speak, his jokes make no sense, and he’s been reduced to squinting at a teleprompter, just hoping to get through another event. Someone should really step in and stop this elder abuse. And the country can't take much more of this screaming full speed down the highway blindfolded.

The Rise of the New Mediators

We know exactly when and how Rome fell, but why such a backwater of a city became one of history’s greatest empires remains a mystery. And now, from politics and especial the media, the old framework and the old elites seem to be going the way of the dodo. Other institutional developments are less well known but even more pregnant with future possibilities.

The flood of digital content has proved most destructive to those institutions that profited from selling information, what we call for interesting reasons, the media. The word means “in the middle.” Journalists claimed to stand between the public and the facts about the world. While that was never really true, in the last century the news media did sprinkle tidbits of information sometimes useful to ordinary people.

Today, we are drowning in the stuff. The “news feed” is nothing more than a button in social media and the newspaper, cradle of journalism, has lost its business model. The facts of the world as it turns out, are virtually infinite in number and incoherent in pattern. The digital age resembles the Tower of Babel, an uproar of mutually unintelligible voices in a giant circle jerk.

Media like CNN flushed their credibility long ago and now merely contribute to the noise. In such an environment, conspiracy theories can become plausible explanations for the behavior of scientists. The more information we absorb, the less we understand. The New York Times has given up any pretense of objective reporting and is now the interpretive organ for the cult of identity and the progressive left. 

Fox News has long made a good living playing the same part for the unreconciled right, but zoomers and younger millennials have little interest in the pronouncements of people with trained voices and unfashionable hair. 

The new mediators offer themselves as storytellers and interpreters, our local guides through the jungle of contemporary life. They make no claim of objectivity and their ideologies encompass the political spectrum. On the left, for example, the “Young Turks” headlined by the verbose Cenk Uygur (affectionately known to readers of DMF as Cunk Yogurt) and his skinny chick sidekick have become the mouthpiece of the communist-oriented Justice Democrats. The Turks boasts there own fledgling network and more than 5 million subscribers on YouTube alone, far more than CNN’s average cable audience. 

Then there is young lass Bari Weiss, having worked at The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, comes from old media, but she understands the changed landscape and seems to have the right mix of talent and ambition, and a healthy Substack. Though fairly centrist in her politics, Weiss is a fierce advocate of free speech and an unrelenting opponent of the cult of identity. She strikes me as a dragon-slayer and a voice to be heard in the coming years.

Then there is Ben Shaprio. Full Stop.

We go to a purveyor of information as we go to a doctor, because we believe both to combine special knowledge with high integrity. At a time of institutional breakdown this can only be a personal assessment. Institutions are depositories of reputation. They garner trust over long spans of time, often generations. The journey is strewn with the carcasses of experimental forms that succeeded briefly, then failed for good. (cue laugh track) Then there are the CNN+'s that just fail coming out of the chute.  

With the institutional future of media, as with every evolutionary process, many are called but few will be chosen.

Joe Biden’s Guide to Life

"Hardly anyone was shocked to learn that President Joe Biden is so cognitively impaired that members of his staff are printing out official note cards with detailed instructions to help him carry out his daily tasks. On Thursday, for example, White House photographers caught a glimpse of a card outlining the "sequence of events" for a discussion about offshore wind energy. "YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants. YOU take YOUR seat," the card instructs."

"In addition to these event-specific note cards, Biden also carries a general "cheat sheet" to help him get through the day without humiliating himself. The Washington Free Beacon has exclusively obtained a copy of this official document. It is published below in full to ensure that OUR democracy DOES NOT die in darkness. Enjoy!"

And Now a Word From the President:
