More bad polling news for Brandon--left-leaning AP shows him at a fresh low for their poll, 43% approving, 56% disapproving.

And:

As of now, just 28% of Americans say they want Biden to run for reelection in 2024, including only 48% of Democrats.

He's not running, and everyone knows that -- we don't know if he'll even be existing for that election -- so this has no real-world impact, but it does tell you about people's Brandon Tolerance Level.

And:

Only about a quarter were very confident that Biden "has the mental capability to serve effectively as president" or "is healthy enough to serve effectively as president." Close to half are not confident in Biden's mental capability or health.

Drew Holden has a great thread on all the bluecheck activist "journalists" who uncritically amplified Nina Totenberg's claim that Gorsuch is waging germ warfare against the wise Latina. I mean, I amplified it too, but I'm openly an activist and not a journalist and also, I think it's funny.

Good thread though-- why do zero "journalists" check sources now? Wasn't that supposed to be the foundation of their craft and why you were supposed to believe them?

In an interview I think I'll post tomorrow, Walter Kirn points out that almost no "journalists" leave their computer screens or even pick up a phone any longer -- literally all their "journalism" is reading tweets and retweeting. A major journalistic activity might be sending an email or DM for comment on a hit piece they've finished writing.

Speaking of illegitimate elections -- those drop boxes the Wisconsin governor lawlessly ordered in 2020? And the open invitation to voter fraud that is "ballot harvesting"? Yeah, those were both illegal. A judge has banned their use in 2022.

A judge in the key battleground state of Wisconsin ruled Thursday that ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting violate state law and cannot be used in the upcoming midterm elections.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren determined "there is no statutory authority" to allow for either practice, which became highly controversial in Wisconsin following the state's razor-thin outcome in the 2020 presidential election. President Joe Biden defeated former President Donald Trump in the state by approximately 20,000 votes.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission, which is under fire for allegedly bending and even openly violating state law to give Biden an edge, authorized the dramatic increase in the use of ballot drop boxes, but Judge Bohren held that the agency lacked lawful authority to do so.

The plaintiffs, voters represented by the conservative Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), argued that state law allowed for only two methods of returning an absentee ballot: Through the mail or in person at the municipal clerk's office. Nowhere does it allow for a ballot to be dropped off in a drop box.

Likewise, Wisconsin law provides that no person "may receive a ballot from or give a ballot to a person other than the election official in charge." This, the plaintiffs argued, is a clear prohibition on ballot harvesting, the practice of third parties collecting absentee ballots from voters.

I wonder which blogger, apart from AllahPundit, will write this up at Hot Air.

Oh, I already know. It was Jazz Shaw.

Most perfect election in the history of the universe.

M&Ms will become "more inclusive;" the animated characters representing the candies will be given "nuanced personalities."

Candy is about to get more "inclusive," with the maker of M&M's announcing its famed characters are getting modern makeovers and will have more "nuanced personalities."

Mars, Incorporated, the company behind the colorful, candy-coated chocolates, announced Thursday a "global commitment to creating a world where everyone feels they belong and society is inclusive."

What are the odds that two of the "nuanced personalities" turn out to be "gay" and "trans"?


Via Andrew Kerr of the DC Examiner, quoting the New York Times: Kathy Griffin once asked CNN's head and Chief Dwarf Jeff Zucker for a raise.

He was so offended that this zero-talent, who was lucky to have a job at all, was demanding a raise, that he fired her on the spot.

Later, he thought it over and rehired her... at a 20% pay cut.

Will Chamberlain was goofing on bloated nepot Jonah Goldberg and was surprised to hear about this story.

An old, old story. But a good one.


Jonah Goldberg's Fake Pulitzer Nomination Will Follow Him Forever


MSNBC.com's Bill Dedman clearly had a lot of fun debunking conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg's claim on his latest book jacket that he'd been twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

By Adam Martin

MSNBC.com's Bill Dedman clearly had a lot of fun debunking conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg's claim on his latest book jacket that he'd been twice nominated for a Pulitzer Prize...

As Dedman gleefully explains, Goldberg did not actually receive a nomination, but merely entered the contest, which merely requires $50 and an entry form. Penguin, which published Goldberg's The Tyranny of Clichés: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas, says it will remove the claim. Goldberg, for his part, says he didn't make the claim in his National Review biography, which has been updated to exclude it (thank god for the cache!)....

But while Goldberg, Penguin, and National Review have sanitized the instances of his biography on which Dedman called him out, he's a prolific enough writer and commentator, with enough short bios on various websites and publications, that the notion he's a two-time Pulitzer nominee won't be easy to put to rest...


Dedman may have won his point, but Goldberg's been trading on the notion he was nominated for a Pulitzer for so long, it will follow him around online long after he's officially disavowed it.

That's nothing. The bloated jerkoff also claims credit for the "MacGuffinization of Politics," a much more prestigious honor.

BTW, he didn't claim to be nominated for a Pulitzer as some kind of wry joke or satire of the industry. No, he really tried to scam people and got caught.

This is what got Chamberlain goofing on this untalented mommy-rider: He attacked Josh Hammer for calling the useless cvck Orin Kerr the "David French of conservative jurisprudence."

And, for you persnickety grammar policers out there, you'll note this Pulitzer Prize-nominated author (TM) defended French while confusing the parts of speech.

Screenshot (1306).png

Some of you may say, "But that's too minor an error to dunk on Jonah over."

But I'd respond: "Would Jonah dunk on a Twitter Enemy over that error?"

Checkmate. I say "Checkmate" to you, Sir.

NeverTrump distances, distances:

Screenshot (1311).png

Julie Kelly is right; this cowardly cvck gasbag took about 13,000 words (run the wordcount yourself, I'm just eyeballing this wall of text) to tell you "I'm not voting for either person."

As usual. It's not biiiiiinary.

But of course telling conservatives not to vote for Trump is effectively campaigning for Biden, because conservative votes would tend to go to Trump.

And that's all these it's not biiiiiiinary guys do, campaign for Hillary, and then Biden, and then claim that ackshually, they wrote in Ronald Reagan or Liz Cheney or whatever so they technically didn't vote for Biden.

No, you didn't use your single vote for Biden. You instead used your influence to generate thousands and thousands of votes for Biden.

Cowards. Liars. Quislings.

Send them your money. They are men of highest honor and scruple and courage, and they are all Fighting For You.

Speaking of: David French launched, get this, yet another attack on Christian evangelicals, presupposed on the leftwing paranoias about their militancy.

Screenshot (1313).png

Screenshot (1307).png

Here's Jonah the Whale continuing to whine that Josh Hammer called some other quisling a David French (a noun, not an adjective, note):

Screenshot (1314).png

Must be nice when your Democrat donors have arranged it nice for you so that this is your biggest worry of the day.

Must.

Be.

Nice.

Oh, and speaking of actual conservatives who really are fighting for you: Julie Kelly will be testifying in front of the House Judiciary Committee, attempting to inform these useless tits about the gulag prisoners the Media Faction and their NeverTrump Renfields call the "insurrectionists."


This earring-wearing Real Journalist not only cites the length of Biden's press conference as proof of his greatness, and not only says that one of the few tough questions (about his senility) was a bad question which came from "a real jerk," but then announces that Biden committed no errors during it.

They're the media -- trust them! They are brilliant, faultless analysts operating on the Plane of Genius and committed Truth-Tellers!

I still vividly remember the day my parents came home with a big bag of Trail Mix, when "trail mix" was new.

It was filled all kinds of shit -- such as "Carob" covered raising. Carob is fake chocolate that tastes like the devil's dingleberries. And pretzels covered in white goo, they told us it was yogurt or something.

We wanted Real Sugar!

But, you know what? My parents were right to try to get us off the Big Sugar slave train.

Public libertarians, the libertarian movement etc. basically consists of people whose only objection to government coercion is (a) border enforcement; (b) drug laws; (c) sex. Throw in the occasional tantrum about law enforcement in general and you've covered the whole gamut of libertarian policy preferences. We used to just call people with these positions liberals, but that term became so tarnished that the same people (joined by big government Republicans who find Christianity icky) adopted the self-designation libertarian.

At least Submariners, for the most part, still adhere to their "Silent Service" trademark, where SEALS seem to have gone full publicity whore. And you can tell that DELTA remain professional. Howso? You never hear nor read about DELTA, that's how.

Your argument seems to be a false choice fallacy, and that's inherently dishonest. If I vote down-ticket, but refuse to vote for the guy (or his opponent) that you like, then it's the same thing as voting for his opponent?

Do you feel the same way about all the tens of millions who don't even bother to show up to vote at all? Would you WANT those tens of millions to show up to vote? Because I bet if they did, they've likely vote against you in a tidal wave of stupid. Just sayin'.

Cicero was too lame to even go and fight Catliline, much less Pompey. In fact, he pretty much followed Pompey around on a leash when not trying to be invited into the "Best People" optimates. Like a new man like him had a chance there.

I think he just wanted a big win to cap off his consulate because he didn't really get how bad it would look when set up besides men with real wins. Same with his comical attempt to get a Triumph after he was forced to go out and leave Rome to govern a province.

252 A judge in the key battleground state of Wisconsin ruled Thursday that ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting violate state law and cannot be used in the upcoming midterm elections.
Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren determined "there is no statutory authority" to allow for either practice, which became highly controversial in Wisconsin following the state's razor-thin outcome in the 2020 presidential election

At which point no one - absolutely no one - can claim that there were no illegal votes cast in the 2020 election, or that the margin was so small that it was insignificant.

"Legal" fraud was the main fraud. Millions of illegal votes were cast out in the open via the legislative requirements being subverted by judges and other non-legislative bodies.

Liposuction has its place for getting rid of stubborn pockets or shaping. Using it for weight loss is stupid. It's painful and you'll gain it right back if you don't change habits.

I know someone who even failed the stomach staple process. He managed to eat so poorly he still gained weight.

Not the way it works, Marcus. If you run on being the great white hope, you don't denigrate white folk. If you run on being the "great communicator," you don't hide.
He ran on being a war hero (type) and then crapped on American basic values.
He wants it both ways. Not today. Not now.

Granted. However, you'd think he would have a better line to give someone who looked to him for help (I am talking about the J6 prisoners) than to say that doing or saying anything would only help him and not them. In reality, it is the opposite. They are already in jail and being abused physically and mentally. He's a free man, walking around.

Instead, he is acting as though being associated in any way would be poisonous to HIM.

I get what you are saying, but this seems wrong to me, in spite of what he's done in the past.

407 There's a Even Deeper Deep State embedded within the government-corporate-media complex, devoted to a Double Secret Reverse Cloward Piven Strategy. All this shit about Gay M'n'Ms, installing a drooling perverted criminal in the presidency, and playing the hokey-pokey with Putin in Eastern Europe is actually due to their clandestine efforts to completely implode totalitarian progressivism once and for all from the inside, out.

In other words, Q. With the explanation that there was never going to be a Trump led big mass arrest and media takeover to explain it to the public . "Enjoy The Show" meant, well, this right now. It would explain why the Super Duper Genius Cabal of billionaires and bureaucrats keep making average people unhappy and pushing really unpopular ideas like "eat bugs" and "accept pedos".

97 Later Tuesday on All Things Considered, [Totenberg] changed the word "asked" to "suggested," saying, "So Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form or other, suggested that the other justices mask up."

Exactly how did Roberts, in some form, ask or suggest that his colleagues cover up? Totenberg told me she hedged on this: "If I knew exactly how he communicated this I would say it. Instead I said 'in some form.'"

100 "It's time for the non-Jewish world to actively free itself from antisemitism. If you're not Jewish and you think Jews are centring themselves in cries about media bias, you don't have a clue what it feels like to watch mainstream media serve your enemies and jeopardise your security. You have no idea the act of courage and resistance that it is to walk into a synagogue in 2022 and pray. America tells itself it's a safe place to do that. That is a lie. This could have happened at any Jewish institution in this country. Why don't more people care?"

This is from an article linked over at Instapundit. I do not necessarily quibble over what she is saying, I just wonder if she ever wondered what it was like to be a conservative unvaxxed christian in today's day and age?

NBC News: "Conservative Activists" (Parents) Want the Schools (Government Agencies) to Disclose Their Lessons Plans (Government-Created Materials). But That's Bad.

The Media Faction is actually now arguing that the Government Has Privacy Rights and should be allowed to keep secrets from citizens.

They're literally arguing that parents should be forced -- by threat of violence -- to fund schools, but that schools should then conduct their business in secret, protected from parents' prying eyes.

This.

Cannot.

Last.

They fought critical race theory. Now they're focusing on 'curriculum transparency.'


Conservative activists want schools to post lesson plans online, but free speech advocates warn such policies could lead to more censorship in K-12 schools.

Art caption:

Some conservative activists say the curriculum transparency effort is a potent strategic move to expose and root out progressive ideas from schools

So you're admitting conservatives are attempting to de-politicize the politicization already effected by your fellow progressives?

Oh, of course they're not admitting that; in any question like this, they immediately default to the claim that "the truth has a progressive bias." Progressivism belongs in the schools because progressive politics is The Science.

Lawmakers in at least 12 states have introduced legislation to require schools to post lists of all of their teaching materials online, including books, articles and videos. The governors of Arizona, Florida and Iowa, who have previously raised concerns about how teachers discuss racism's impact on politics and society, called for curriculum transparency laws in speeches to their legislatures this month.

"Florida law should provide parents with the right to review the curriculum used in their children's schools," Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, said in his State of the State address last week.

Horrors! Parents want control over -- or even a heads up about -- the schools they're legally required to fund and which their children are legally required to attend.

But the Government Has Rights!, we shall soon see.

...

"People are going to disagree on a lot of these issues," said Matt Beienburg, the Goldwater Institute's director of education policy. "Transparency is something I think that at least allows for that conversation to know what is being taught. Everybody should be able to rally around the fact that we shouldn't be teaching something in secret."

But teachers, their unions and free speech advocates say the proposals would excessively scrutinize daily classwork and would lead teachers to pre-emptively pull potentially contentious materials to avoid drawing criticism. Parents and legislators have already started campaigns to remove books dealing with race and gender, citing passages they find obscene, after they found out that the books were available in school libraries and classrooms.

"It's important we call this out," said Jon Friedman, the director of free expression and education at PEN America, a nonprofit group that promotes free speech. "It's a shift toward more neutral-sounding language, but it's something that is potentially just as censorious."

The only people in America who have full free speech rights are government workers during their government-paid jobs teaching your children in a venue your children are legally required to be present at.

You, on the other hand, do not have any free speech rights. You also do not have the right to show up at school board meetings to challenge the methods and materials used to indoctrinate your children.

But teachers, ah, the blessed teachers! Those for whom It's All About The Kids, as we've learned so many times over the past two years!

They have carte blanche to indoctrinate and groom your children as they will.

And how will that work out for them?

Well, according to a new Trafalgar Poll: Not great. Not great.

Republicans soar to a preposterous 13.5% lead on the generic Congressional ballot.

Of the 1,083 likely general election voters surveyed between 01/12/22 and 01/15/22, just 38.7 percent approved of Biden's performance and 59.2 percent disapproved. Nearly 50 percent of voters said they strongly disapprove of the job Biden is doing.

...

Trafalgar's party preference poll, conducted between 01/12/22 and 01/15/22, resulted in very ominous numbers for congressional Democrats.

...

Respondents said they preferred Republicans over Democrats 55.7 percent to 42.2 percent.

As a wise woman once said: "It is time to do what we have been doing, and that time is every day."

Amen.

25 Note to future VA college students - take Oral Communication/Public Speaking at your local CC before going to college. Of all the required "core courses" so far, this one seems to be the utmost in leftist indoctrination. Which is a little surprising b/c you'd figure other core courses would be more likely for the indoctrination overkill, but I guess this one has no other course options except coming in with CC credit, and there's no AP course to bypass it, so here we are.

50 "Censorship" of organizations goes by another name: control.

My wife was a public school teacher. She wasn't allowed to talk about Jesus any time she wanted to, even if it could have helped a kid. Since courts decided that authorities at school are like "Congress" making laws putting people under the authority of Churches, she knew that she didn't have a "right" to say what she wanted.

Now, curriculum is decided by administrators--even *further* up. If administrators can be "censored" in the curriculum, then any administrator that doesn't get his choice of textbooks is being "censored". Because the administration picks what this textbook says and not what that one says.

This is soooo stupid. And, I daresay bullshit.

55 As a homeschooler, I find it odd that parents want or need privacy. Since the beginning when my spouse and I started volunteer teaching homeschool kids, we've had a policy that parents can sit in the back or listen in on the computer at all times (depending whether we've been onsite or virtual) - partly so they can watch their own kids' behavior/effort and partly so they can know what's going on and incorporate it in other learning. Now, the only rule is they can't disrupt or answer the questions for the kids, but other than that, well, we hope they learn something...

Ours is a top 5% school in the state. Every parent is a Tiger Mom/Karen helicopter parent. My kid was upset once about a "bad" math test. The "bad" grade? 91. It's that kind of environment.

Another kid is at a charter school and there it's the same. No fucking around. Teachers don't put up with any bullshit and the principal is not afraid to expel students who aren't cutting it or don't want to be there. The goal is Stanford or bust, that's kind of the joke.

Point being there is still good education out there. My view is parents make the education system. If parents care, the education will be good. If they give no fucks, it will not be.

119 MIT has a huge collection of practically all of their lectures online in a number of subjects and several other colleges do the same to a lesser degree and even the most run of the mill community college will post their syllabus online but apparently it's a bridge too far for some tattooed nitwit with a nose ring and a 1.9 GPA education degree to post her lesson plan for teaching history to your fifth grader.

Personally I think a lot of them are afraid of everyone finding out how dumb they actually are. I've run into some public school teachers over the years and I've yet to see one that impressed me with their intellect. Most of them teach straight from the textbook when they bother it all to teach. My 10th grade world history teacher back in the late seventies could go on for hours about the Peloponnesian Wars. I doubt there's a 10th grade world history teacher now that could find Iran on a globe.

Sounds like a lot until you realize that's only going to pay the superintendents pension for a single year. I should have worked that fourth job for a couple of more years, then I wouldn't be complaining.

I also complained to my teacher and was told I just didn't understand the beautiful symbolism in those scenes.

Are none of the parents who have gotten deeply involved with the CRT asking their children to write-down the titles of written materials and videos used in their classes each day? Are children not permitted to take printed textbooks and handouts, or the electronic versions, out of school buildings? Are no parents asking their children to describe what they were taught in school that day, while recording the session on a phone or GoPro? This will not provide a list of materials to be used the next day, week, or month, but it's hard info that can be used to get a sense of where a given school or teacher is heading.

I support the efforts to mandate teaching materials transparency. Waiting for those laws to be passed should not be preventing parents from obtaining a lot of the info now from their children, then sharing the info with other parents, legislators, and friendly news media.

144 I've been trying to come up with words to describe what I see happening on the left right now, and it's difficult. It's a weird situation; the power class is getting more and more strident about hanging on to their perks and privileges, but all of their actual supporters, their foot soldiers, are getting depressed and just dropping out. It's hard to prove because those that are leaving don't want to talk about it, they just quietly fade back into the woodwork.

But the entire Left is turning into an ersatz Potemkin Village - a large, ornate, impressive looking front with nothing at all standing behind it.

That works for me. But I'd also like to see parents inspecting the crap their kids haul home from school in those big backpacks. Parents should inspect kids' homework, and should show an active interest in what their kids are learning, if for no other reason than encouragement. Don't need to pass a law to do that.

It's not really that "Dems" have chosen this hill to die on; the real problem for them is that there is absolutely no leadership at all on top, no one to make choices or say "this really isn't a good idea". So what happens is that every vested interest group that's part of their coalition - in this case the Teachers Union and the Ed. Establishment - go nuclear whenever *their* personal grift and fiefdoms are challenged, and they drag the party into their fight with them, even if it's a stupid, destructive, battle that will damage all of them.

There's no one on the Left who can say "No!" to any of this, which is a big reason they are failing, and will continue to fail.

It's a good thing, but in the end, it is another government problem, government solution pair, where the solution is ripe for abuse. The solution does not address the base problem of the dominance of leftists and their organizations in the sphere of education. You are meant to surrender your child to the state for indoctrination. It is a band aid meant to prolong that dominance. We will need to revisit the same in a few years, just like VAERS was meant to track vaccine adverse events, and it appears to capture only 5-10% of the current cases, and of those, the information is highly politicized in favor of protecting the status quo.

I don't know if I remember this happening during the day, but I do remember evening events when all the teachers and classes were open, and the parents went to each room to meet/greet with the teachers and the kids. Examples of where we were at as far as instruction at that point during the year, and what level we'd be finishing at. This was elementary. My High School did weekend events, which a blast as they'd work a fundraiser in there as well, sort of an educational carnival (private school).

I had a math teacher who was running a craps table shaking down the parents. Starting at a nickel, the stakes rose quickly. He taught parents (and kids) the basics of probabilities and statistics in 20 minutes. He made a few thousand dollars that weekend for the school.

I saw a similar (or the same?) picture on the twatters and some psychos in the comments said it's no big deal because they used to have *recess* in cold weather.

Someone should make them sit down on the ground (no grass allowed!) outside in below freezing temps and tie them down so they can't move about for an hour. It's amazing how many people are ok with cruelty to children (and sick and other vulnerable people) because of muh Corona.

And the school district (Fairfax, NoVa, IIRC) was like, oh no, it wasn't a big deal. We were actually being nice because we were giving them a break from masking up.

Lots of folks need to be locked up.

Yep. Looking back I can count the number of teachers I had who were actually smart on one hand. When you have teachers who send you to the eye doctor because "Horrors! That cow demon is writing letters FROM THE BOTTOM!!!" or "You don't know how to write cursive? We learned already. Too bad. Learn on your own." (From moving from a place which didn't teach it until third grade and instead taught it in second) it's not an indication that they are smart or ambitious.

But there is something that I can't get over and that's that they look at it from a defensive position instead of taking the offensive. We wait until these clowns come ashore before beating them back into oblivion. I'll say this, they have it planned down to losing every man, woman, and child who can fight but why not take the fight to them instead of waiting for it to knock at the door.

I cannot recall the Cuban Missile Crisis. I also cannot recall doing a Duck and Cover Drill in school. We lived a long way from any Russian first strike targets, throughout my grade school and Junior High days. The only time in all of my school years I got a bit worried about the Rooskies was in 1973 when Nixon went to DefCon 3 during the Yom Kippur War. I'll never forget my history teacher announcing that in class, in a solemn voice.

Gird. Your. Loins.: Rachel Maddow Claims That Biden Heroically Stood at the Podium for One Hour and Fifty Minutes to... Send a Powerful Signal to Vladimir Putin That He Was Strong And Had Stamina for the Long War Ahead

Remember when I said the only thing the left could find to praise in Biden's press conference was its duration? (Which wasn't even all that long?)

Well, Maddow decided to take the leftist meme of the night and go insane with it -- as usual -- and link it to MuhRussia -- as usual -- and claim that Biden stood there and took questions for a full 110 minutes just to send an unmistakable signal to Putin that he was ready for a push-up contest with nuclear missiles if Vladdy wanted one.

This isn't Trump's America anymore, Vlad! Poppa Biden's gonna show you how he took care of business with Corn-Pop!

"With all the talk about Putin and him talking about ... the question of whether Putin is going to invade Ukraine might ... be decided by which side of the bed Putin wakes up on -- and all this stuff about trying to get Putin's head. One part of me wondered if he was trying to sort of ape Putin's annual press conference thing where he does these sort of feats of strength. He does these feats of stamina showing how long that he can continue to go taking these questions. So that was part of it," Maddow said.

You all heard Biden give Putin the go-head for a "just the tip" "minor incursion" into Ukraine.

Rachel Maddow, on the other hand, saw Biden deliver a "Tear down this wall" challenge.


Sounds like Rachel's girding her own loins for a man for the first time in her life.

Speaking of overpromoted coozes: Kamala Harris. I will take Kamala Harris' side 100% non-ironically and say absolutely, the old white man who is her boss-puppet emphatically did not position her for success, because she had to go out on TV shows and explain whether Biden did or did not believe that the midterm elections would be illegitimate.

Because Kamala Harris didn't know the answer -- I mean, does Biden actually know what Biden thinks? Did Ron Klain tell him what Biden thinks? -- she had to do what Kamala always does, dodge the question by filling up the air with nonsensical babblings.

And when that doesn't work, she gets, what is the word?

Bitchy. She gets bitchy.

Which is what her nasty senile boss does, too.

What?

On one hand, I concede that she's been put in a difficult situation by a feebleminded moron, but on the other hand, she dodges questions by babbling incoherently so often that you'd think she'd be better at it by now.


itistimeforustodo.jpg

She's lifting from Kramer.

Jen Psaki was also in a difficult spot, and so she decided, as Kalama Harris might say, that it was time to do what we have been doing, which was aggressively, bitchily lying.

She claimed repeatedly that Brandon did not say what he plainly said about the midterms being illegitimate if he wasn't allowed to rig them like he rigged the 2020 elections -- even after a reporter read back Brandon's words to her, verbatim.

Joe Concha
@JoeConchaTV

Here’s what Biden said yesterday: "The increase in the prospect of (future elections) being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these (voting) reforms passed." How else can this be interpreted?

It can be interpreted as "Orange Man Bad, 2020 Elections Perfect, seditious conspiracy to question them, 2022 elections... we'll see. We'll see."

Returning to Rachel Maddow's insensate claim that Brandon's press conference intimidated Putin rather than emboldening him: Weird, the State Department doesn't agree, because they lit up reporters' email to clean up Brandon's open invitation for a "minor incursion" in Ukraine.


The President of Ukraine sure didn't think that Brandon was challenging Putin to a Festivus Feats of Strength, either. He seemed to think that Brandon had all but clipped the barbed wire to help Putin start his invasion:


Screenshot (1304).png

Was the plan always to supplement Brandon's Show of Force -- by merely standing and talking for almost two hours, you know, like you do at any cocktail party -- with an urgent WH press release that contradicted his statement that a minor incursion would be permitted?

cleanupminorincursion.png

John Hayward
@Doc_0


Biden's handlers do not understand the psychological impact of dispatching his flacks to insist the senile old man didn't say any of the things he clearly said in his dumpster fire press conference. They're on the verge of turning low poll numbers into national panic.

Screenshot (1305).png

Yeah, I'm all out of F's to give about Ukraine. I don't like this corrupt country meddling in our elections on the Democrats' side as if we're some backwater third-world shithole.

We are that, of course, thanks to Obama and the left, but I don't like this pissant country taking advantage of our temporary embarrassment.

45 The plan is to let Russia invade eastern Ukraine as a demonstration of force, then "negotiate" its withdrawal.

Only when the Russians don't play along and instead either a) take Kiev and install a puppet government, or b) simply carve off the eastern portion of the country, the Biden admin will flail and likely get us drawn further in. I could see the Russians shooting down US transports, with the US response resulting in an air and naval battle in either the Baltic or Black seas.

I don't believe it has anything to do with Putin. I think it's more likely he saw polls that were saying Americans think he's feeble and addled and he said, "God-damn it, I'll show them! I'll stand up there and answer questions until the reporters are begging for a break!"

57 Why does Biden not care about a country that funnelled him lots of corrupt money? Probably because the political leadership supporting that corrupt money-funneling got thrown out by voters, and replaced with an administration that's been trying to investigate the corruption.

In short, the current president of the Ukraine could potentially end up exposing Biden's corruption. With the receipts.

82 At least Biden is fully consistent and non-contradictory. Like how Russia's control of the European energy supply doesn't matter until our energy policy should guard against it.

for example, everybody talks about how Russia has control over the energy supply that Europe absorbs. Well, guess what? That -- that money that they earn from that makes about 45 percent of the economy. I don't see that as a one-way street. They go ahead and cut it off -- it's like my mother used to say: "You bite your nose off to spite your face." It's not like they have all these wonderful choices out there.

{five minutes later}

And I think there's ways in which we can be of some value added in terms of the price of gas -- natural gas and the like -- to take the burden off of European countries that are now totally dependent on Russia. But it's going to be hard. It's going to be very hard.

The longer the Russians stay in Ukraine proper, the more "false flag" attacks against Russians in Ukraine will occur. However, Putin will certainly raze Kiev from Belarus to send a message: Russians are not to be fucked with.

Yes, constantly. And two hours would have been short for one of his daily COVID press conferences.

But the "Biden's presser was longer than any Trump presser" us almost certainly a technical dodge meaning, "no scheduled press conference by the Trump White House for general remarks exceeded the duration of the this Biden press conference." And that might be true, I don't know. But Trump ran marathons with the press, constantly, in all venues.

Watching this asshole trying to president, to the degree he is still a rational conscious actor, is like watching someone try to play Madden who doesn't actually know how the sport of football is played.

They've watched it, and rooted for it, and they own a jersey, but they don't really know anything about the game itself. They're just trying to hook up with the chicks at their buddies' house who do watch football.

Biden has been a detached grifting nonentity for his entire career. He is to presidenting what the drunk old lunatic at Applebee's ranting about how the quarterback sucks is to being an NFL champion.

The fuck? Most Americans have never met someone with Polio, so they can say stoopid things like this.

Polio is awful. I met a guy in Canada who had Polio. Not only was one leg several inches shorter than the other, he was a broken man.

He couldn't read more than a few sentences at a time because he would get massive headaches. That happened because his skull was malformed and focusing his eyes was a great strain on him.

He had a child's ribcage with adult sized organs.

He was hopelessly addicted to opioids because he was in constant pain.

Polio is absolutely NOTHING like Covid.

247 I would say, the US has an obligation to protect Ukraine from the treaty we were part of to have Ukraine give up its nukes.

I'm afraid though that US credibility is repeated flushed down the toilet by Democrats every single time when the US is called upon. (see Vietnam 1975, etc.). Any country that enters into a treaty with the US better have it's eyes wide open.

Perhaps that's what Ukraine was trying to buy loyalty from the Dems and Biden, but I guess this only adds to the betrayal. Biden seems ok with Putin taking a bigger bite out of Ukraine. Putin probably doesn't want the whole thing, it would be more than weak and poor Russia could handle anyways. He'll just take a piece at a time whenever a Dem is president (Obama, Biden)

If? I think it is a near certainty at this point. Middle of election cycle, stuck with braindead and a cocksucking dimwit, woke military. The really bad part of it is that I wouldn't put it past the American left to secretly push for it and a half-hearted military engagement if only to seize war powers. Outside invasion worries? Why? We are our own worst enemy.

I have no particular love for Ukraine. But to let Russia invade or use UC means to take the country over is a mistake we would regret. There has to be a price for such action because it eventually leads to a conflict we will care about. But don't take my word for it, look at history. The Russians will keep pushing until there is a price to pay.

Ze Germans thought the same, and with considerably more justification. America can win if everyone else is using wargame rules to let the US military take full advantage of all their gadgets with a relatively united population. The Chinese have gone out of their way to minimize the potential of everything from GPS on down. If they don't buckle under the first military response- and they won't- then they can start by pushing the US forces in Korea into the sea.

Look, there is nothing wrong with supporting the home team, but the mongoloid leaders in Washington didn't see the Russian buildup in Belarus. Tech is good, but it can't replace brains.

Due to our random sanctions on Russia over the last 10-20 years Russia has developed internal means to build almost everything, and the relation with China means he has at least 1 trade partner, and India is talking to them as well.

Even if that hadn't been true, Europe's need for Russian gas is far worse for them than not being able to sell it. And the notion that gas exports are half the Russian GDP is absurd.

Yes, Ukraine should have pushed for ratification before signing. Our executive branch needs to follow the Constitution and submit for ratification.

440 The Russkies and Ukraine situation is significantly different than the Chinese-Taiwan situation.
But then again, there are similarities.

In Europe, a lot of NATO and EU countries want to make nice with Ivan (like Germany). Other countries, not so much (like Poland).
The alliance is split on the issue. I don't know what or how we would deploy troops there, besides the ones already in Poland. It could be a bad meatgrinder for us to get involved on the ground.

Taiwan has it's detractors, but Japan has invested a lot of money INTO Taiwan to make stuff for Japan. Japan is also alarmed at what China is doing strategically (overall) in Asia. Add Australia, India, S. Korea (which is also divided on the issue and is pretty close physically to China).
If Taiwan falls to the PRC, a lot of dominoes in the Pacific will start falling.
If Russia bites off part of Ukraine or installs a puppet government there, I honestly don't think much really changes.

457 As much as I hate the "world's policeman" image, it is (in some ways) necessary for the US. It may not matter today if Russia takes Ukraine, and China Taiwan, but ever nation that is absorbed into hostile powers will bite us in the ass in the future. Maybe militarily, maybe economically, but if hostile nations gobble up one small nation after another, and we don't expand our sphere of influence, it's not a good thing. We pay with lives now, or many more lived later.

It was the lesson I thought we took away from WW2. Large conflicts will inevitably arise unless someone (the US) is so overwhelmingly powerful that no one dares to start anything. It mostly worked. As Team America said, we have the responsibility because we have the power.

Not that I have heard, this came out from western sources only. The negotiations with the US and EU over Ukraine's situation are that Ukraine should complete the Minsk agreement and have bilateral discussions with the breakaway countries to settle borders. Ukraine seems to want Russia pulled into that, which Russia doesn't want but they do want it settled.

All services and utilities would begin to seize up. Roving bands of murderers would own the streets (even more than we have now.)

I've read that to secure our electric grid from such an attack would cost every household a one time charge of 25 dollars. I'm willing to secure my household and a bunch of my neighbors at that price. I'd suggest our leaders don't care but I think the truth is that they don't give a flying fvck.

575 My stance on the point of helping Taiwan vs having chips is that we need to be prepared for chip shortages. I do not want to risk American lives just to have a new iPhone either. Just that the reality is our country is sadly not prepared for this reality, and it was easy to see coming for over a decade.
Posted by: Dogbert

It's not just computer microchips. It's a lot of things. Our position in the Pacific will be significantly weaker IF China takes Taiwan. This has been a point of discussion for about 70 years now, since the CCP took over and made China the PRC. There have been a TON of skirmishes between Taiwan and China over the years, each has shot down the other's airplanes, etc.
The single biggest thing we could do would be to put some fast attack subs in the Taiwan straits and sink whatever China sends over to Taiwan, should the fighting start.
I contend that China wants to take Taiwan intact, and not wreck the place. At some point, Taiwan is expected to give in. After all, people in leadership in China not only read Sun Tzu, they memorize passages from his book.

Ukraine's population is 44M. So .14% of their population is military. By comparison ours is something like 0.5%. So remind me again why our ration is 3X as high as theirs?

Say that does happen. Tawiwan produces 80% of the world's chips. So there will be a shortage, short term. But China produces 25% and I'm pretty sure they could ramp up production pretty quickly to meet the demand.

Even so, a chip shortage for a few months is not enough of a reason to go to war with China. Sorry. I can wait a few months for my new iphone 15 or whatever number we're at right now.

It a serious of exercises where the students take various staff jobs in different phases of an operation to defend Ukraine from a fictional nation's conventional invasion using Russian equipment and doctrine, starting with mobilization in the US, movement to theater, defending an attack, and finally counter attacking.

Yeah, well I remember in the 1970s the "Reforger" plan was that the US Army would just land at Frankfurt airport, about 30 miles from the front line if the USSR invaded. You can imagine what the Russians could have done to a bunch of Jumbo Jets full of troops.

638 We had a President sign a treaty that we would preserve the borders of the Ukraine (against Russia).
But he was a Democrat (Bill Clinton); so the Democrats are sure that doesn't count.
Yet again (Obama and now Biden).
Lesson:
Never trust a Democrat, they're certain oaths and treaties are of no value.
I already knew that; watching Reagan and GHW Bush make "deals" with them.
But it's nice to give big examples to everyone, I guess.

Posted by: Joe XiDen - I miss Delta Variant at January 20, 2022 05:27 PM (OalnH)
================
China is the physical location of Taiwanese chip plants. As a broad generalization the Chinese have zero ability to run those plants or maintain them. What is ridiculous is your semi-hysterical pro-China rants. You need to understand the difference between plant location and management capacity. Its basic.

But again, the larger point is unhinged posts, like yours, only lead to bigger problems. Trump managed the Pacific incredibly well, I thought, better than any recent president, and his policy was the exact opposite in every respect of what you advocate here.

Too true, and I am by no means knowledgeable about this. There was a guy I knew once who was a non-com out at NTC, and that was basically what he said.
A lot of the lower level enlisted will have no training for this at all. Some of the older NCO's and officers may remember what to do. I mean, they're not senile and forgetful.
But training has always been the edge for the US military. Since Reagan was President, training has been a by-word for being prepared.
The Russian army is full of 1-2 year conscripts. They might look good against Ukraine.

Not a treaty, not ratified by the senate, and doesn't obligate aid. Russia was one of the states signing the Budapest memorandum so it wasn't specifically against them either.

At most it calls for consultation in the event of Ukraine's borders being violated, and to make a request for aid to the UN security council if a nuclear threat is made against them (how about them Russian and Chinese vetoes).

Ukraine considers it a treaty, since to admit otherwise would mean they got cajoled out of their nukes, but obviously since we never ratified it as a treaty in the Senate it cannot be a binding treaty with us.

In practice it's another lesson for countries to not trust us diplomatically and to never enter a NPT if they aren't already allied with a nuclear power.

656 427 China makes more chips than Taiwan by the way, 24% to 21% of worldwide output. Going to war with China will fuck our access to more chips than letting China have Taiwan.

Also how is the quality and reliability?
It reminds me of the pronouncements that more women are graduating college than men. But ..... what degrees are they coming out with in comparison to the men? Women Studies, Black Studies, Sociology, Underwater Basket-weaving?

Ugly Dwarf Robert Reich: Democrats Should Give Sinema "the Backs of Their Hands"

The Party of Women, y'all.


Former Democratic Labor Secretary Robert Reich became the latest figure on the left to viciously attack Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., over her filibuster stance, suggesting Senate Democrats should assault her for it.

"Tonight, Republican senators lined up to shake Kyrsten Sinema's hand," he wrote in a now-deleted tweet on Thursday. "Democratic senators should have given her the backs of their hands."

...

"No big deal," tweeted radio host Larry O'Connor. "Just Democrat/Socialist icon [Robert Reich] encouraging violence against a female senator who didn't vote the way he wanted."

A malignant communist dwarf with barely-repressed anger issues against women?

I shan't believe it! I simply shannot!


Update: Robert Reich has now acknowledged fault.

He acknowledged that this is all the fault of the conservative media, for "wildly misinterpreting" his statement.


Robert Reich
@RBReich
Last night I deleted a tweet because it was widely misinterpreted and distorted by conservative media. "Back of the hand" is an idiom for rebuke. I wholeheartedly condemn violence against women.

Why didn't you say it about Manchin then, Miguelito Loveless?


Last week, Jonathan Turley was perplexed -- remember how the media used to love "mavericks" like John McCain -- or Mitt Romney -- Republicans who defied their party to vote with the other party?

How come the leftwing media isn't celebrating two mavericks, Joe Manchin and especially the unconventional Kirsten Sinema?

I mean, you can't get more mavericky than Kirsten Sinema.

And yet the media hates them.

Liberal commentators this week went after Sinema with sputtering, blind fury, many mocking that she became emotional as she described the anger and divisions in the country.

...

Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, who previously called for burning down the Republican Party, tweeted, "Sinema is effectively asking the authors of Jim Crow and vote-rigging to give their permission for her to stop it. This is worse than incoherent or cowardice. It's a moral disgrace. Ask the segregationists for permission to vote for Civil Rights Act?"

So, senators voicing the same position recently held by Democrats such as Biden, Obama and Schumer are now "segregationists"?

...


Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) [was once hailed as a brave maverick] he voted to convict then-President Trump in his second impeachment trial; liberal commentators showered him with praise. In 2020, Stephen Colbert heralded Romney as "a ray of hope" who spoke the truth and was "willing to put up with whatever the blowback for this decision is."

...

Yet, according to the Liberal pundits, Sinema is no Romney. She had the audacity to stand on principle rather than politics....

Sinema's speech was denounced by those who insist that bipartisanship is a "myth" in the age of rage. She is, according to MSNBC's Nina Turner, a "soulless coward" for seeking common ground and compromise. She is hated precisely because she did not hate enough. She did not hate Republicans so blindly as to declare them modern Bull Connors like Biden did or to call the filibuster "a relic of Jim Crow."

So, why does the media celebrate "mavericks" like McCain, Romney, Cheney, and Kinzinger, and condemn mavericks like Manchin and Sinema to hell?

I can't figure this Groovy Mystery out.

Can you?

Many years ago, I was traveling by air, and was in the United Airlines concourse at O'Hare International.
Carville was there, and stalking around. At one point, I was standing about 5 feet away from him in a book store.
He is actually pretty tall (6 ft 3 or 4) and had on a nice black 3 piece suit. But he is weird looking. He looks weirder on TV than in real life, but he is still weird looking. And he looks angry all the time.
Later, I saw him stomping away with a big bucket of peanuts to munch on.

Manchin for sure. He's most likely not going to have to worry about re-election. Any primary fight will be a joke, and any general election argument that he's a rubber stamp for the Biden agenda has a very public example of where he's not. Sure, he's rubber stamping every judge, but he stopped BBB.

Sinema, though...she's not the political institution in AZ that Manchin is in AZ. A well funded progressive challenger in the primary could possibly knock her out. She'd probably win the general were she to make it through the primary, but that primary fight that's surely coming is going to be tough.

What a cowardly liar.


First of all, the Democratic senators are already rebuking Sinema. So there is no need for Reich to say "should have."


Secondly, in context, he was talking about the Republican senators (physically) shaking her hand. So in context, this was not about a metaphorical rebuke. It was literally about senators' using their actual hands.

I like dwarves. in most games, dwarves are forthright warriors against the Dark. They hew giant cities out of the hearts of mountains, and have enormous, braided beards. They often are paladins.

Now, Bobby Hitlertime isn't a true dwarf. I thought he might be a gnome, but he isn't as good-natured as a gnome. Perhaps a svirfneblin. perhaps...

But Polliwog mentioned that he most fit the behavior of thieving leprechauns - the ones that accuse you who have bought your OWN FREAKING CEREAL of stealing his.

Thus, my conclusion - Robert Reich is a leprechaun.

If you want to have fun with any CovidKarens you know, casually drop this new study making the round, "you know, study shows flies can maybe transmit Covid".

They've know that flies can be a mechanical vector for various pathogens, and tried it with the Coof virus. They didn't get any culturable virus transmitted, but did get pieces of it. Which, if such a fly landed on you, might make you pop positive on a ridiculously high cycle PCR run.

Don't tell Karen that, though, just freak her out about flies transmitting it.

There are over 21,000 reported dead on VAERS (the official government site) related to Covid19 vaccines. And over 1 million "incidents". It is not easy to log into and report on VAERS, and it is thought that these numbers may only be 5-10% of the actual numbers.

I'm not going to, either, but I'll take a guess at it.

"Reports of vaccine side-effects are exacerbated because of wide-scale misinformation in anti-vax online communities and in the conservative media. People who get information from these questionable sources are more likely to report vaccine side effects, which indicates that many vaccine side effects are likely related to the "placebo effect" where people in drug trials report side effects even though they have not been given the drug. Widespread misinformation campaigns make people exposed to those campaigns susceptible to phantom effects that do not occur in the wider population."

501 I'm going to be honest, I'm not getting the vapors over Reich's comments. If someone said about McCain, "Every Republican outta slug that sonofabitch" after he voted against the Obamacare repeal, we'd think nothing of it. Sinema wants to play in in the Boy's League, so she doesn't get special treatment for being a girl.

505 I'm all too happy these Democrat "mavericks" decided to go down this path, but if I'm being intellectually honest, I'm not really sure it benefits them the way they think it does. They don't get the media praise, which is about the only thing Republicans get when they buck their base.

So the media hates them, plus the liberal activists, plus the liberal donors. Which means they get a bruising primary battle.

_______________

The placebo effect works because you believed you took something that was going to help you, even if you really just got a sugar pill or a saline injection, or whatever.

The media is apparently claiming that the people who had adverse reactions or died after getting the jab only did so because they believed something bad would happen if they took the jab.

IOW, that myocarditis is all in your head!

527 Actually the only mask that is effective is one that is rubber or flexible plastic of some sort and that has special filters that can be changed out every so often.

And even those are truly the best as they do not filter the exhaust which means you are still spreading any germs you breathe out.

Really the only mask that provides protection for you and all around you are a full face mask that has it's own air supply.

I've been waiting for some entrepreneur to come up with a Stormtrooper face mask with real filters and voice amplifier, night vision lenses and a separate air supply. Even paying the license fee I would think you could make millions with all the helicopter Karens out there freaking out over their kids being around hoi polloi unmasked barbarians.

535 hi guys! well I was a little sad to see the earlier post wherein I guess I diverge from our host a bit on vaccine efficacy. I am twice-moderna'd and have had autoimmune struggles, serious allergic reactions that have sent me to the hospital, recurrent rashes that are hard to clear, and sudden-onset arthritis.

all this for a vaccine that apparently doesn't even prevent you getting COVID! neat.

so, to me best case the shots are a wash. but honestly in my heart I know I'm not alone. it's not a wash, not at all.

if you have time, go thru this substack by El Gato Malo, with help from Joel Smalley, who got ahold of un-redacted data from Alberta:

Biden Claims That He's Greatly Overperformed Expectations, and The Media Actually Bothers Asking the Public: Do You Agree?

Via Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.

This was just an absolutely bizarre claim from Biden, during an evening of bizarre claims.

I know Trump really innovated and disrupted in the field of puffery -- "People are always telling me, you've done a really great job on trade, they can't believe what a great job we're doing" -- but at least those claims had some ba
