The Bidens were late to the Queen's funeral, so they were seated in the "nosebleed seats," 14 rows back.

All because Not-President Joe need special accommodations in transport.

The leader of the free world was relegated to Westminster Abbey's nosebleed seats for Monday’s funeral of Queen Elizabeth.

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden were seated 14 rows back for the service in what the British press described as the result of a complex seating plan devised under long-established protocols. Those with a better view included the president of Poland, the emperor and empress of Japan, other European royals and the King of Jordan.

He got "stuck in traffic." Why didn't he leave earlier?

Here's an idea: They didn't leave early because they know that Biden only has a certain amount of time, measured in 90 to 120 minutes, before he starts sundowning and showing obvious signs of mental infirmity.

So they left late deliberately, because they couldn't take the chance of having Biden be caught in a place he couldn't easily escape from for hours and hours.

And I think they wanted him near the back, where he'd draw less attention if he began sundowning.

Bear in mind, he was jetlagged, so who knows when Sundown's sundowning would start.

He also needed a note-card to tell him what to write in the condolence book.

But he's the real president. He's totally fit for office. Watch what he does!

I had to screencap that from SC Reviews because this genius protected sher tweets, of course.

"2 + 2 = 4" is "covert racism."

"Standardized testing," in which all people at the same grade level are tested on the same subject matter because they're all being taught the same curriculum, is "racist"?

Basically, having anything that you say is a definite right answer, or having any standards whatsoever, is racist, because some minorities will fail. And yes, it's because some minorities will fail. Some white kids will fail too, but, just like white people getting killed by cops or going to prison, no one cares about that.

All norms of society are being razed to the ground for the sake of "not being racist."

If you can't bring up the bottom-performers, you have to bring down the top performers.

So we have to destroy all of math, science, medicine, and civilization itself so that "everyone is equal" in stupidity and failure.

I think I read about this a long time ago.


Josh Hawley asks Tamika R. Montgomery-Reeves, nominee to be United States Circuit Judge for the Third Circuit, about a report she prepared and signed her name to stating that portraits of white judges must be removed from courtrooms in order to avoid "identity threat." She says she doesn't know what identity threat is and basically says she didn't read her own report.

Former Fox "reporter" Major Garrett: We're 85% of the way to a civil war.


That far, huh?


Oh, and you're not going to believe this, but he says it's Trump supporters' fault.

"It feels more dangerous than any I've encountered in covering politics at the national level since 1990," Garrett told host Margaret Brennan. "Stating what clearly happened in 2020, it wasn't a fraudulent election, no crime was committed. That doesn't mean you have to be happy with the result but one of the burdens of democracy is when you're unhappy with the result your obligation is to win the next election. Not slander baselessly the election you fairly lost.

"We have a component of American politics that now wants to slander an election that was fairly lost," The Takeout podcast host said. "Because they're unhappy. That unhappiness does not entitle you to drag down American democracy, Margaret, because if we enter a phase in American life where either political party refuses to accept a fair and verified election simply because it lost then we will dismantle democracy bit by bit, before our very eyes."

...

"That's what I am, what we are driving at when we talk about the coming contours of not a bloody civil war, but a procedural Civil War where we separate ourselves from another and the Union, the United States itself, bit by bit becomes to break- begins to break apart," Garrett said.


...

According to Garrett, the snowball effect could completely dismantle American democracy.

"The great fear I have, Margaret, is politics is a lot like the NFL, it's a copycat League, whatever succeeds, you replicate," he said. "On the right, in the Trump world now, the fastest way to social media, fame and fundraising is to deny the 2020 election. You don't think Democrats aren't watching that and may be tempted by the same social media and fundraising lure- that that has? They will be. That's why we have to stop it, back away from it, and say, not here, not this place. This part of our civic life is sacred. We're going to inspect it and respect it and accept the results."

They will be "tempted" to deny election results?

Where were you in 2016 through 2020?

Did Hillary Clinton respect the 2016 results? Did the #ResistanceMedia? Did the DOJ? Did the FBI?


Plot twist: Some Martha's Vineyard residents are praising DeathSantis for sending the illegals, to raise the profile of the issue.

Fox News went to Martha's Vineyard to chat with the locals and found at least two that were impressed by the move.

"I really praise him for doing that," said Elizabeth Bostrom. "Because it wasn't a stunt. I know the media's been saying it was a stunt."

"But how do you get the attention of the administration?" she asked. "How do you get the attention of [Kamala] Harris who is supposed to be in charge of this?

Fox News's interviewer asked if Harris has been a good border Czar. Bostrom scoffed at the question.

"It's really a joke and everyone knows it," responded Bostrom.

It gets better.

Another resident actually brought up the fact that what Martha's Vineyard experienced briefly before it rid itself of the issue in the most hypocritical way possible is something that Texas experiences daily and in a vastly greater capacity.

"How do you think the people in Texas feel that get thousands of them a day? We had a little taste of it with 50," said the unidentified man.

The planet is still going to melt though, right? White supremacy is still a greater threat than ISIS though, right?

Why you should be happy about inflation and worried about something else, top economist Brad DeLong says

How could high inflation possibly be good?

Not only are you paying more for stuff than a year ago, but the consistently higher-than-expected readings in the Consumer Price Index continue to devastate the stock market, sending the S&P 500 down over 1,000 points on Tuesday, its worst day since June 2020.

Someday that shit will get loose from one of the thousands of biolab freezers around the world (or somebody will build the organism from scratch with gene sequencing.) When it gets loose, expect COVID-exemplary competence from our 'public health' leaders. We'll all fucking die.

Not really, if its just smallpox. In days without fever reducers it was pretty bad and scarring was nasty, but fever was the real killer. We have ways to reduce the symptoms now, assuming the government doesn't suppress them again.

72 "2 + 2 = 4" is "covert racism."

The people trying to sell that BS are actually trying to sell Minority New Math and Logic. For example, the following equation is unquestionably correct using Minority New Math and Logic:

on the other hand, global warming BS has been very useful for taking control of energy policy (and many other things). The mRNA experiment and "anti-science" shutdowns were useful in killing small business and manufacturing their crisis (which they won't let go to waste).

High energy cost hurt the poor the most, but coal is fine in China and India. That disturbing trend of a rising middle class had to be stifled, so the rich can enjoy their resorts and beaches without the hoi polloi working class polluting their space. Back to a struggling middle class, keep the peasants oppressed.

One example, this Major Garrett idiot. Like everyone else who just breezily throws out the absurd assertion that the 2020 election was just fine, he has not the slightest understanding of how an election with integrity is even run or designed. Not a clue.

These people can't concretely address *any* of the obvious problematic/to worse facts and observations of 2020. They don't even know what they are. They of course have no idea what the standard is for a federal court to void a federal election (not for president, it has its own constitutionally mandated "safeguards", which, ahemm, clearly failed as well).

Not a serious country, for some time. But now much, much, much worse than just that.

What an idiotic belief. I challenge the people selling that BS to find and put on TV a black, brown, yellow, or red tribal chief or tribal priest who not only believes, but insists, that 2+2 = 4. No tribal chief or head priest of any skin color keeps the job for long if the base tax and tribute calculations on 2 + 2 = 4 maybe, some of the time.

I doubt Aztec, Inca, Zulu, Polynesian, and Montagnard farmers ever had success telling the tribal chief or his tax collectors that 2 + 2 is not always 4.

154 So if he declares war, I think it gives him some conscript powers to increase troops substantially.

He can call up the reserves, which would involve calling up soldiers from across the Russian Federation.

This is a problem for Putin - almost all the soldiers killed in Ukraine are from dirt-poor rural areas and non-Russian republics, where economic conditions are so bad that joining the Russian army looks like a good deal.

Almost no one from Moscow and St. Petersburg has been killed in Ukraine. You start getting a significant body count from the rich cities, and the domestic politics of the war radically change.

160 Referenda in D & L have long been scheduled (for this week actually), and plans for same in "liberated"/"occupied" portions of Kharkov, Zaporozhe, and Kherson were announced in the last few months.

Those latter ones I always figured were just russkis trying to generate even more leverage over the Ukes for a settlement, they were announced at the height of Russian Big Mo on the battlefield (I mean after the first week, which is a different category). A potentially dangerous gambit (for lots of locals, in the medium run).

Now I'm not so sure. Of course all referendum results will be dismissed out of hand, which will help continue to protect ignorant/misinformed westerners from the complicated actual facts of eastern Ukraine WRT ethnicity, politix, national affiliation desires and etc.

Its been clear for a while that diplomatic paths were closed by the Ukes and the West. There have been several acts to try and assure people in the occupied areas that they will be protected - dual passports. The recent Ukr law that even food supplies by Russians are a crime just made that worse. If they vote yes they will be protected barring a military conquest by Ukraine which isn't in the cards.

221 I remember reading "WWIII" by some retired general and at the end when the Soviets ran out of gas and surrendered, the world was to be policed by the UN and if a leader somewhere in the word got uppity he and his family would be neutron bombed into behaving.

Before he lost his mind, never-Trumper Ralph Peters wrote a novel called "Red Army" in 1989 that looked at the war entirely from the point of view of the Soviet military that invaded West Germany. The Soviets won, which was unique for 1980s WWIII porn.

It's quite good.

222 That de facto immunity for US shipping to the Pacific coast of the USSR during the war was indeed an amazing thing, but from the Japanese viewpoint, a no-brainer. They needed a neutral USSR when they started in with the US - with each passing year they needed that more desperately.

Far East route was the largest by volume of the 3 major Lend-Lease routes to the USSR (Iran/Gulf/Caucasus 2nd, maritime to Archangelsk and Murmansk 3rd).

Great planning...they probably thought the economy would turn around, and they could protect Brandon and the dems. Now it'll be so obvious they have to declare it, right before the midterms, and without enough time for it to even have a chance to correct, even in some notional, abstract way.

If you know a child or wife is being abused, what do you do?

The easy answer is "beat or kill the assailant," but then you go to prison, and your own kids have no dad.

The next easiest answer is "call the duly-constituted authorities," but most of them don't care, and all of them are incompetent.

The worst moral conclusion is to say "it's none of my business. I'm leaving these people to their particular misery." But our society enforces this attitude, with extreme prejudice.

Even if our army was up to snuff in fighting which might not be the case after Obama/Biden neglect, you can't fight a war on Russia's doorstep without any supply line back to the US. The Black Sea route is out, there are too few good rail links, etc, etc. Now, of couse we have drawn down a lot of our reserve stocks to start with, and we likely don't have the ability to resupply a hot war over the long term due to our deindustrialization.

294 Extremely difficult to imagine any Russian government *not* keeping/securing/whatever Lugansk and Donetsk, now. If the Ukes take Lugansk, which I don't think is very likely, Russians will take it back. Both oblasts have a populace that will never reconcile with Kiev, after 2014-today.

So far the Ukrainians have shown little ability to take back land in the Donbass where the bulk of the troops are deployed even with most of the infantry there being local militia. Most reports have them taking lots of losses trying.

295 Why wouldn't you send illegals all to Martha's vinyard.Vinyard.. They can get jobs in the Vinyard. There's a nice agricultural visa, maybe they marry into the family and the car you bought your daughter comes pulling up with him driving. Calling you dad. What's that? Little Jennie is pregnant? Huh, she and Jose killed you! I'll be a God damn.

In the spring the Russians introduced a series of incentives for these fellows to volunteer for new units being raised and they have some units being trained up and brought on line.

298 Haven't read the comments, but I must say: Daddario is far, far more pleasant to the eyes and ears than the AOC kick Ace has been on recently.

And I would imagine even the Ette's agree.

Wasn't it TheJamesMadison posting the "Daily Daddario" recently? Must feel vindicated!

301 I think there's another reason for Biden riding separately to the funeral. As long as Biden is riding in The Beast, if he craps himself he can have his diaper changed and nobody in the vehicle with him will say a word. If it happens on the bus with all the other heads of state, he'll have to stay in his dirty diaper and everybody will smell it.

302 "All norms of society are being razed to the ground for the sake of "not being racist.""
No, Ace. Racism is being used to raze all norms of society to the ground. "Racism" is the tool. The razing of Christian civilization is the OBJECT.
