Russia Disqualified From The European Tree Of The Year Contest


In light of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, many in America—and around the world—are boycotting Russian products. Bars are refusing to serve Russian vodka, for example. Some of the reaction, however, has been silly. What possible good could come from banning books by classic Russian authors like Tolstoy or Chekhov? Or from cancelling composers like Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, or Stravinsky, all of whom died long before Putin came to power?

Even sillier, recently a group in Brussels arbitrarily disqualified Russia’s candidate for the European Tree of the Year competition, an oak tree said to have been planted 198 years ago by renowned Russian novelist Ivan Turgenev. The ETY competition got its start in 2011…as a way to celebrate the histories of old trees and develop bonds between nations. After all, what could be less political and more neutral than a tree?

At an awards ceremony in Brussels on March 22nd, the organizers announced that this year’s ETY winner was Poland, for a 400-year-old oak tree that organizers said had become a symbol of Polish resistance to aggression-- and its warm welcome to refugees from Ukraine. Well, that’s not very neutral.

The organizers of the competition released a statement saying, “We cannot stand idly by and watch the unprecedented aggression of the Russian leadership against a neighboring country.”

So they didn’t. They went nuclear. Forget sanctions. And banning the purchase of oil and gas from the world’s largest country pales in comparison to this. This is devastating. This is a statement. Kicking Russia out of this year’s European Tree of the Year competition hits Putin right where it hurts!

Ketanji Brown Jackson Can't Say What A Woman Is


Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson could not define the word “woman” while under questioning recently from Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN). This led Blackburn to quote the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s majority opinion in U.S. v. Virginia: “Supposed inherent differences are no longer accepted as a ground for race or national origin classifications. Physical differences, between men and women, however, are enduring. The two sexes are not fungible. A community made up exclusively of one sex is different from a community composed of both.” After reciting this, Blackburn asked Jackson, “Do you agree with Justice Ginsburg that there are physical differences between men and women that are enduring?”

Jackson-- clearly struggling with this eternal puzzler-- replied: “Um, senator, respectfully, I am not familiar with that particular quote or case, so it’s hard for me to comment.”

Blackburn than asked Jackson, “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman?'”

To which Jackson responded, “Can I provide a definition? No. I can’t.

Blackburn: “You can’t?”

Jackson: “Not in this context. I’m not a biologist.”

This is as if Jackson was asked if she could provide a definition for the word “tractor” and answered: “No. I’m not a farmer.” Or if she was queried, “Can you give us a definition for the word ‘pants’” and replied: “No. I’m not in the apparel industry.”

Worse, actually, because Jackson is a woman.  Which, as President Biden himself stated, is one of the two main reasons why she was nominated.

In the interest of comity and clarity, I hereby offer several clues that you are likely a woman:

*You possess breasts and a vagina

*You urinate while sitting down

*You have given birth

*You like to shop at Target

*You watch the Hallmark Channel frequently

*You have been hit on by Bill Clinton

*You know the difference between ecru and beige

*You often use the term “patriarchy”

Just kidding about a couple of those, ladies. But, seriously, as I’ve often stated, if we get to the point where we can no longer determine what a man or a woman is, we are not long for this world.

Rather than face a conclusion, we should return to Genesis: “Male and female He created them.”

That we can no longer recognize this first-- and most basic-- of all facts, does not render it less true.




Convicted "Toronto 18" Terrorist To Become Canadian Lawyer


In 2006, Saad Gaya-- and more than a dozen other radical Islamists— planned to detonate bombs throughout Toronto, Canada’s largest city. Blessedly, the plot was foiled in a national security operation. Gaya was arrested while unloading what he believed to be ammonium nitrate for making truck bombs. The al-Qaeda-inspired plot was purportedly to target the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Parliament of Canada, Canada’s spy agency, and a military base, among other venues. Gaya and his accomplices planned to take political hostages. And behead various Canadian leaders including the Prime Minister.

In 2009, Gaya pleaded guilty to the commission of an offense for a terrorist group. He was sentenced to serve 18 years in prison. However, he was released on parole after only 10 years, finishing his sentence in 2020. Not bad for a guy that was involved with a plot to blow up bombs all over a city of 6.2 million souls……and decapitate its leaders.

And today? The Law Society of Ontario has decided to allow the convicted terrorist to become a licensed lawyer! You read that right. How could this happen, a sane person might ask? Well, the Law Society’s Tribunal decided he was “presently of good character,” finding him eligible to become a lawyer based on its assessment of his remorse and conduct since his “offense.” The Tribunal stated, “Clients, and our society as a whole, will benefit from Mr. Gaya becoming a lawyer.” Well, I guess it’s preferrable to him blowing up Toronto and beheading Canadian leaders.

Ironically, Gaya embarked on his legal career shortly after leaving prison, and recently graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. He is currently listed as an “articling student” with the firm St. Lawrence Barristers LLP. (Articling is a professional rite of passage for junior lawyers, a job akin to a practicum position. It's an opportunity for them to hone their skills before starting practice.)

Gaya is obviously a great guy who only briefly—and in his youth, mind you—flirted with blowing places up and beheading people. I mean, give him a break, it’s not like he walked through the Capitol Building or something.

Or misgendered someone. There oughta be a law!

For the good of society, let’s hope he doesn’t bomb as a lawyer.

Hillary Clinton Contracts COVID, Asks For Movie Recommendations-- Hilarity Ensues


Fully vaccinated and boosted Hillary Rodham Clinton recently tested positive for COVID-19. She joins other fully vaccinated and boosted Democratic luminaries such as Barack Hussein Obama and Jen Psaki in contracting the coronavirus.

The former First Lady took to Twitter to tell us: "Well, I've tested positive for COVID. I've got some mild cold symptoms but am feeling fine. I'm more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness. Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven't already!”

In the old days, vaccines prevented one from contracting diseases. You know, like smallpox, mumps, and polio, for example. No one said, “I’m more grateful than ever that the smallpox/mumps/polio I’ve contracted hasn’t led to serious illness.” But I digress.

The two-time loser added, “Bill tested negative and is feeling fine. He's quarantining until our household is fully in the clear. Movie recommendations appreciated!" Two observations here: First, Bill has probably been “quarantined” to the Clinton’s basement couch since the Lewinsky scandal. And second, Hillary exposed herself to much ridicule in asking for “movie recommendations.”

As was evidenced by the person who suggested she watch “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.” Or the ones who thought she might enjoy “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” or “Liar Liar” with Jim Carrey.

I would suggest Madame Pantsuit watch 1980’s “Hussy” with Dame Helen Mirren. I would also offer up “Black Hawk Down” for her viewing pleasure. 2012’s “Rape” or 1987’s “White Water Summer” with Kevin Bacon would be appropriate, too. Bonus: Hillary might then be inspired to play a modified version of “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” a game in which you try to find the shortest path between a given actor and Kevin Bacon, and in which connections can only be made between actors who have appeared together in a movie. In this version, “Six Degrees of Bill Clinton,” Hillary could try to find the shortest path between any actress—or female in general-- and her dearly beloved horndog hubby, and in which connections can only be made between those who have appeared together between the sheets. What fun!

New York Times Sort Of Defends Free Speech


The New York Times editorial board recently published a lengthy essay declaring that there is a "crisis of confidence" regarding free speech in America. In the editorial, the board lamented the fact that Americans "are losing hold of a fundamental right as citizens of a free country: the right to speak their minds and voice their opinions in public without fear of being shamed or shunned."

The essay stated, "The political left and the right are caught in a destructive loop of condemnation and recrimination around 'cancel culture,’” and was, preposterously, harder on the right than the left.

No matter, Times readers were aghast. The paper’s left-wing audience called the editorial "appalling” and castigated the paper for even comparing transgressions of the left and right. As if, right? A reader from Baltimore said, “You are creating a false equivalency between private citizens' opposition to willful disinformation and points of view they find objectionable, and the recent Republican craze for using the levers of government to stifle discussion of particular topics."

This is, of course, is 180 degrees opposite of reality. It is preposterous projection. It is Democrats that control the levers of government, who wield the power, and use it to stifle discussion. Their sycophants in the mainstream media and Big Tech literally stifle conservative expression and thought on a daily basis, banning them from their platforms, hiding, shadow-banning and demonetizing their websites. (Like this one, for instance.) Democrats and progressives in government have recently locked people down, deemed their jobs inessential, and forced them to accept experimental gene therapies into their bodies or accept the consequences—including fines, frozen bank accounts, and imprisonment.

The left hates free speech. Always has. This is a simple historical fact. Its ideology has failed everywhere it has ever been tried. It has brought nothing but misery and death to billions of people. This is why leftists will never participate in a civilized debate. This is why they must revise, alter, erase, or abolish history.

“Crisis of confidence” surrounding free speech in America? No doubt. Who’s responsible?

Try tweeting: “The 2020 election was riddled by fraud.” Or, “Some studies have shown that Ivermectin may help alleviate COVID-19 symptoms.”  Or “The science isn’t settled.” Or, “Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are great guys.” See where that gets you. Might be a clue.

Democrats Propose Inflationary Bill To Offset Inflation

Rampant inflation got you down? Don’t worry, Democrats are here to help! Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA), Rep. John Larson (D-CT), and Rep. Lauren Underwood (D-IL) have proposed a bill that would give every American $100 each month to help offset the scourge of rapidly rising inflation.   

CBSNews noted of the proposal, which is being called the Gas Rebate Act: “The gas stimulus would ‘provide middle-class Americans with monthly payments to ease the financial burden of this global crisis,’ Thompson said in a statement about the proposal.”

Not to be outdone, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), have put forth a second proposal, one which would provide a quarterly rebate to consumers based on a tax levied on oil and gas companies. According to a statement from the two lawmakers, their “Big Oil Windfall Profits Tax” would charge a per barrel tax equal to 50% of the difference between the current price of a barrel of oil and its pre-pandemic average price between 2015 and 2019. Khanna and Whitehouse claim to have calculated that if the per barrel price is, say, $120, the tax would raise about $45 billion a year — providing single filers with $240 annually and joint filers with $360 per year. (Another marriage penalty?)

When you really think of it, this is mind-blowing. And counterproductive. Democrats want to offset the negative effects of their own policies by trying to buy our votes? And the money they would send us would either have to be taken from us taxpayers in the first place, be printed out of thin air, or just be added to our already astronomical national debt. In any case, it would exacerbate the very inflation whose effects these ignorant asshats purport to be attempting to ameliorate.

As for the tax on “Big Oil,” these companies would have to pass on the cost of the tax to consumers, thereby raising the price of gas even further. And necessitating another gas rebate for consumers and an additional tax on “Big Oil?” Do Dems wish to repeat this cycle ad nauseum until the complete and utter collapse of our economy? “Windfall profits?” I thought “Big Oil” only engaged in price-gouging when their enablers in the Republican Party were in power. But gas prices were historically low when President Trump was in office.

But now that President Biden has embarked on a war against North American extraction industries—-and continued Obama’s massive arbitrary subsidies of Big Wind (not Eric Swalwell’s nickname), things have necessarily changed very quickly. “Sustainable” green energy can’t compete with oil, coal, and natural gas on a level playing field in a free market, yet the U.S. government has dictated that it must—and spent billions of dollars to make that happen. That is a “windfall.” Entirely unearned. For green energy.

There is a good reason why “I did this” stickers featuring President Biden’s likeness are showing up on gas pumps and on grocery store shelves around the country. He did do this to us, knowingly or not.

We were energy independent less than two years ago. In that context, the Ukraine War wouldn’t have mattered to us. (The humanitarian cost is another matter. We can all agree: Russia bad.) Yet now we are relying on countries with Most Heinous Nation status to provide for our energy needs. We are literally—and needlessly-- prostrating ourselves.

Democrats have no idea how the real world works because they typically have no experience outside of government. This is why no one should be eligible to serve in Congress unless he or she has run a business-- or has significant other experience in the private sector.

The more there is of something, the less it is worth/will cost. The less there is of something, the more it is worth/will cost. The law of supply and demand can’t be repealed. Even by our elites and would-be tyrants.

The Biden administration can keep its “Biden Bucks.” We should all rebuff its attempt to buy our votes.

It did this to us. And it needs to stop it. And go away.

Yale Free Speech Symposium Cancelled By Protesters


A March 10 panel on free speech, hosted by the Yale Federalist Society, was disrupted by nearly 120 Yale Law School students whose behavior was so threatening that police were summoned to escort the speakers to safety. The panel featured Monica Miller of the progressive American Humanist Association and Kristen Waggoner of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative nonprofit that promotes religious liberty.

The opposing groups took the same side in a 2011 Supreme Court case on legal remedies for First Amendment violations. Ironically, the Yale event was intended to show that a liberal atheist and a conservative Christian could find common ground on free speech issues. That may be the case, but progressive/leftist whackos won’t be part of any such agreement or understanding.

When Yale law school professor Kate Stith began introducing Waggoneer, the protesters stood and held up signs attacking the Alliance Defending Freedom. Their actions are an apt metaphor for what’s happening around the world today.

The protesters also predictably attacked the Yale Federalist Society, with one of them even exclaiming to a member of the YFS that she would “literally fight you, bitch.” Professor Stith then reminded the protesters that Yale’s free speech policies bar any protest that "interferes with speakers' ability to be heard and of community members to listen.”

This naturally prompted the protesters to heckle Stith and raise their middle fingers to her. Stith kept her cool and simply responded by telling the protesters to “grow up.” At this, the protesters appeared shocked. They howled and shouted at panelists, declaring that their outbursts were "free speech."

Americans can no longer say we all have free speech rights without leftist thugs calling them names and threatening to do them physical harm. We can’t state the obvious or read the First Amendment without wildly hypocritical—and ignorant-- progressive asshats verbally or physically assaulting us. Behavior which they believe is free speech! Conversely, they think a stated opinion that differs from theirs is not protected, and is, in fact, violence. And these are the lawyers, prosecutors, and judges of tomorrow. Incredible. Scary. Heartbreaking.

{I will} “literally fight you, bitch?” That doesn’t seem very progressive, tolerant, or inclusive, especially as directed at one woman from another. And you can be sure that protester purports to hate the patriarchy, disdain misogyny, “believe all women, and feel like a victim in this #MeToo world.

  One wishes to believe that episodes like this can’t be real, that no one could be that stupid, thoughtless, closed-minded, and hypocritical. Sadly, that is not the case.

Starbucks To Phase Out Its Iconic Disposable Cups


Starbucks recently announced that it will gradually phase out its iconic disposable cup in favor of reusable mugs. The Seattle-based chain claims it is aiming to “create a cultural movement towards reusables” by 2025 – by coercing the public into getting their drinks in reusable containers rather than single-use paper and plastic cups. (Starbucks had previously discontinued use of plastic straws, replacing them with toddler-style sippy cup lids back in 2020. Yay!)

Michael Kobori, Starbucks chief sustainability officer, stated: “Our cup is ubiquitous, and we love that. But it is also this ubiquitous symbol of a throwaway society.” Meaning the existing cups don’t always end up in recycling bins.

The coffee chain behemoth will be instituting “borrow a cup” and/or “bring your own mug” programs. Starbucks customers will soon be able to use their own reusable mugs at every Starbucks store in the U.S. and Canada, regardless of what beverage they order…even if they pay ahead or use the drive-through. The company is also considering allowing customers to “borrow” a reusable mug or cup from the store by paying, say, a $1 deposit, which would be refunded with the vessel’s return.   

The java outlets will install washing stations for the reusable cups-- perhaps next to the disposable needle boxes located near the bathrooms that drug addicts frequent since the company directed its employees to consider anyone who enters a Starbucks a “customer,” whether-or-not they intend to make a purchase. Unsurprisingly, this policy led to throngs of homeless drug addicts lounging around many a Starbucks outlet.  

The company is also said to be considering additional discounts and fees for U.S. customers based on their participation—or lack thereof—in the new woke program(s). So, if you bring your own cup (BYOC), you would get a discount off your order and if you don’t you would pay an additional fee? A Pistachio Latte, normally $5.25, would be, say, $4.25 if you bring your own cup (BYOC), but $6.25 if you didn’t?

What’s next? Will people who walk, bike, or skateboard to a Starbucks be charged less than those who come by automobile? Will those arriving in electric cars get a discount while those in vehicles powered by large internal combustion engines are made to pay a surcharge? Will those sporting bicycle shorts, helmets, and a “Bernie Bro” or “I’m For Her” button get special offers while those adorned with a “MAGA” hat are refused service?

And what else will customers be expected to provide when patronizing coffee shops, fast-food outlets, and “convenience stores?” Will we soon be expected to bring our own dishes and silverware with us when we visit McDonalds?

In that case, virtue-signaling entities like Starbucks should volunteer to get rid of their drive-throughs, so as not to encourage the endless parade of greenhouse-gas-spewing vehicles attempting to purchase something from them. They should eschew heating their stores in the winter and air-conditioning them in the summer. They should tear up the acres of asphalt around them and plant native grasses and flowers. And they should replace their modern bathrooms with outhouses to conserve water—and to provide compostable material to enhance the growth of the native grasses and flowers!

The more giant corporations denigrate the profit motive and espouse woke “fixes,” the less they seem to care about anything else but profit. You can clearly see this with Amazon, Coca-Cola, Facebook, etc., etc. And Starbucks. Similarly, the more leftists blame the rest of us for every problem, the more obvious it becomes that they lack accountability, integrity, and soul.

We aren’t the problem, people. They are.

It’s high time we woke up and smelled the coffee.

Bloomberg Article Says Let Them Eat Beans


A recent Bloomberg Opinion piece helpfully provided Americans with sage advice on how to deal with the current unprecedented inflation, which included eating beans, taking the bus, and skipping chemotherapy for your sick dog. Oh, and the article also suggested selling your car.  

A self-proclaimed "retirement security expert" and professor of economics at the New School for Social Research named Teresa Ghilarducci wrote an opinion piece for Bloomberg titled "Inflation Stings The Most If You Earn Less Than $300K. Here's How To Deal." Ghilarducci noted that "Meat prices have increased about 14% from February 2021 and will go up even more,” and added, "Though your palate may not be used to it, tasty meat substitutes include vegetables (where prices are up a little over 4%, or lentils and beans, which are up about 9%)."

I don’t know what Ghilarducci makes, but 98% of the U.S. population makes less than $300,000 a year. And vegetables, lentils and beans, tasty or not, are not “substitutes” for meat.

Sell your cars, people? And then eat lots of beans and take public transportation? Great advice! But you might want to wear a mask on the bus or train even if it isn’t required. A gas mask, preferably. And then let your dog die. Or, better yet, eat it to quiet those hunger pangs. Cheap meat!

Surprisingly, the Bloomberg Opinion piece did not go over well with some rubes in flyover country. Don’t question the government. Just give up your personal automobile. And meat. And your dog. And maybe your home. Mortgages are so spendy these days! It’s much cheaper to hang out in a Starbuck’s bathroom.

As someone once (might have) said, “Let them eat cake!” Or beans. Because they can’t afford anything else.

That’s what government can do for you!

Submitted For Your Approval: Three Stories


Submitted for your approval: three recent news stories so preposterous that they can only be true.


First: the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) actually condemned the practice of teaching that “self-control” is a “necessary virtue.” In sixth-grade sex education classes. The CBE stated that such an ideal is detrimental to “healthy” sexuality. Yes, healthy sexuality is to have no self-control, no virtue, and just do whatever the hell feels good at all times. Especially if you are a sixth-grader. Who could that ethos harm?

In a Draft Curriculum Review Briefing (DCRB) submitted to the Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees (RMBT) on March 8, the board wrote: “The idea of ‘self-control is a necessary virtue’ is a heavily faith-based concept that erodes the ability to learn about healthy sexual relationships.” Yes, the best thing we can do is get rid of any and all faith-based concepts! Especially those that prevent us from exploring our baser instincts for depravity, violence, greed, sloth, etc.

One can see how the CBE got its dander up. The district’s existing overview of sixth grade teaching about “human reproduction” notes that “It is important to think clearly before giving consent to anything that may have long-term physical, emotional, or social consequences.” How 1950s! Thinking clearly is, like, so totally yesterday! Who cares what the “long term physical, emotional, or social consequences” are…for sixth-graders? Or for anyone? Just jump in and let your freak flag fly!

Second: One of USAToday’s honorees for  Women of the Year (WOY) is a man! Progress!! You’ve come a long way, baby!!! A recent USAToday headline exclaimed, “Women of the Year honoree Admiral Rachel Levine defines courage.” The accompanying article read: “A four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, Levine becomes the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer across any of the uniformed services of the United States.

Let’s set the record straight here. Levine is a man, probably the laziest “transgender” in history. The only thing he’s done to “transition” is to drape a string of pearls around his neck and possibly curl his hair a bit. And he is not a real “four-star admiral” in “the uniformed services of the United States.” If you want to, say, take the Pacific back from Imperial Japan… or defend Taiwan from the Chicoms today, who ya’ gonna’ call? Why, The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, of course! Headed by Admiral Rachel Levine. Who is a woman! Really!

In truth, Levine couldn’t command a canoe let alone a naval fleet, and probably doesn’t know Guadalcanal from a root canal. Also, “she” is obviously confused about certain bodily health matters, unfortunate for someone leading the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Moreover, he took his mother out of a personal care facility even as he directed Pennsylvania’s nursing homes and certain care facilities to admit recovered COVID-19 patients who were treated at nearby hospitals. Shades of Gov. Cuomo.

Third: Someone named Alexis McGill Johnson recently posted a photograph of a pro-abortion ice cream truck on her official social media account. The pro-abortion campaign involved passing out ice cream-- and free condoms-- at the annual South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. She tweeted: "Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for abortion rights!" She added, “Catch us around SXSW and stop by to grab some free Bans Off swag, condoms, and education on the cold-hearted policies of the Texas legislature.” Is an ice cream truck a particularly apt vehicle from which to launch a pro-abortion campaign? Mixing food and the sudden, violent deaths of innocent babies seems inappropriate to me, period. But an ice cream truck immediately conjures up images of lazy summer days and young kids gleefully running after it to procure their favorite confection. Utilizing a Norman Rockwellesque image to promote infanticide should be as counterproductive as it is repulsive.

A pro-abortion ice cream truck? What’s next, a pro-holocaust bagels and lox stand?

Remember: self-control, virtue, and faith-based concepts are bad, but transgenderism is good.

God help us going forward.

Biden Administration Aiding, Abetting New Axis Of Evil


You can't make this up: President Biden is going to effectively give nuclear weapons to Iran, a country that routinely calls the nation he (supposedly) leads “the Great Satan,” and that has repeatedly threatened to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. U.S. officials say they are close to reimplementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a “deal” or “agreement” that is effectively a treaty. Just as incredibly, he is letting Russia, a country we are essentially at war with, handle some of the negotiations with Iran for us. Moreover, Russia recently announced that the United States had made written concessions to it that would allow Iran to continue trade with Russia, despite the fact that Iran recently fired multiple missiles at a U.S. consulate in Erbil, Iraq, and that much of Ukraine now lies in ruins courtesy of our negotiating proxy. Reimplementation of the JCPOA would mean putting at least $10 billion into the Kremlin’s coffers-- at the same time we are supposedly putting strict sanctions on Russia.

“Stupefying” doesn't begin to describe these facts. The Biden administration is aiding and abetting the modern-day Axis of Evil.

The Russia-Ukraine War never had to happen. There is no absolving Russia and Putin of blame. Period. Putin is a monster. But much of the blame for all the death and destruction can be put on President Biden. This war likely would not have taken place if he hadn’t cancelled the Keystone Pipeline on Day 1 of his administration. And if he had sent substantive help to Ukraine in the months leading up to the Russian attack. An attack his own government knew was coming—as it loudly and incessantly proclaimed. But Biden will brook no complaints, accept no blame. In this way, he shares some traits with Putin. Both are vainglorious-- and don’t care much about others.

The U.S. was prosperous, confident, independent, and still largely free just two short years ago. To a lesser extent, so was Ukraine. And then along came Biden.

And now? Never in the field of human conflict have so many been so screwed over by so few. Including generations yet unborn. (Though Democrats might have tried to abort them anyway.)

The Biden administration’s actions—and inactions-- are utterly inexcusable. For comparison, they are as if the FDR administration had been working on a “deal” with the Italians during World War II that would have granted them access to our nuclear research program… and then let Japan negotiate that “agreement” for us. Shortly after it bombed Pearl Harbor. “Preposterous” doesn’t begin to describe the actions of this administration.

The good news is that, short of using nuclear weapons, neither Russia nor China nor Iran can defeat or destroy the United States.

But they won’t have to. Because it appears the Biden administration is hell bent on doing just that.

Ironically, it is the only thing they seem capable of achieving.

Egg Farmer Transported To Hospital With Live Chicken In Rectum


A Shelbyville, Indiana, egg farmer was recently transported to a hospital with an “extremely agitated” live adult chicken stuck in his rectal cavity, according to reports. (I don’t know about you, but I hate it when that happens.)

Shelby County paramedics were summoned to answer a medical emergency concerning a serious “accident” involving a farm animal at around 11:30 one night. Upon arriving at the sight, they discovered 57-year-old Christopher Adams inebriated, bloodied, and naked, on a henhouse floor. With a loudly clucking 5-pound chicken more than half buried in his rectum. The paramedics briefly tried to remove the highly agitated bird-- to no avail-- and subsequently decided to transport Mr. Adams and the bird to the MHP Major hospital. Dr. Aurelius Thomas eventually extracted the bird after a 7-hour-long surgical procedure.

The hen suffered only minor physical injuries. Mr. Adams, on the other hand, required seven blood transfusions and over 780 stitches. At the time of the report, he still hadn’t regained consciousness.

Dr. Thomas noted, “I don’t really know how the bird got there, but getting it out was so complicated and damaging that I can’t imagine that getting it in could have been any fun, either.”

Both the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) have launched investigations into the incident. The ASPCA has taken the hen in custody for the duration of its investigation and, if necessary, will treat it for any evident posttraumatic stress syndrome. No doubt, the poor bird will have issues.

Clearly there was fowl play here. Foul fowl play, at that. (Insert your own joke here.)

There is no way for Mr. Adams to simply explain away what transpired. “Well, the damn thing just jumped in! One moment I was gathering eggs and the next it was…there.” Really? Then why were you naked while gathering eggs? This is a really tough one to rationalize to others. “Well, hon, it was the damnedest thing…”

Mr. Adams, there’s supposed to be a chicken in every pot

Hopefully, Mr. Adams will ultimately be okay. If so, the rotund egg farmer is going to be the butt of many jokes.

One might say his chickens have come home to roost.

California Threatens Toddlers Over Mask Mandate


Officials with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) recently “visited” all three locations of Aspen Leaf Preschool after receiving a complaint that the school was not enforcing the state’s mask mandate, according to conducting their “investigation” at the San Diego area preschools privately “interviewed” children as young as 2-years-old about their masking practices. Without their parents’ consent. This is child abuse heaped on…child abuse. The forced masking of preschool age kids who are at virtually no serious risk from COVID-1984 is abhorrent, “interviewing” them nearly as bad.

Did the “interviewers” carry truncheons and nunchucks? Did they say things like, “We have ways of making you comply with our policies…if you know what we mean. Ja?” Or did they just bad-mouth the kids’ teachers and caregivers?

This behavior should be unacceptable in a civilized society and representative republic.

The only ones who should be forced to wear anything are those in government and the Deep State who would rob us of our money, dignity, and freedom. They should all be permanently adorned with a scarlet HAT, standing for Hypocritical Asshat Tyrant.

If you’re a certain type of person, you can force kids to cover their faces with a mask. For years on end. But you can’t mask evil.

Mao Zedong Bust Displayed On College Campus


The University of Florida recently named a group study room after Karl Marx. The University of Florida. Karl Marx. (They have since reconsidered.)

The recognition and celebration of history’s most radical and deadly leftists is virtually ubiquitous at today’s moron factories on today’s college campuses. The Karl Marx Group Study Room was to be one of 14 such spaces on the school’s campus and the biggest in terms of occupancy. Marx is most notable for authoring The Communist Manifesto, a book published in 1848 that critiques capitalism and that paved the way for communist revolutions around the globe. Revolutions that led to the deaths of more than 100 million people in the Twentieth Century alone. If that’s not enough to get a guy honored on an American college campus today, what is?

Apparently being personally responsible for 45 million deaths, as in the case of Mao Zedong, the Chinese communist revolutionary and mass murderer, whose bust is on display in Washburn University’s political science department. In fact, Zedong’s likeness dwarfs that of most of the others in the Kansas school’s display case of political figures. Well, Chairman Mao is generally considered the largest mass murderer in history, an accomplishment deserving of recognition with a large bust, no? (Mao shares the display case with other leftist luminaries such as Bill Clinton and Bernie Sanders. One of the few “conservative” figures on display is a bobblehead version of Mitt Romney.)

Grant Armstrong, a lecturer in Washburn University's political science department, told Campus Reform that Mao’s bust has been on display for at least two years. He noted, “It’s bigger than any American political figure. It's emblematic of academia today.”

Armstrong added, “I'm a center-left guy, but I don't know if there’s room for people like me in academia anymore. It’s not just conservatives being targeted, it's also those who don't toe the far-left line.”

You think?

Statues and busts of American founders and patriots such as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington-- and even Abraham Lincoln-- have recently been destroyed or moved from city centers and college campuses, but the likes of Mao Zedong and Karl Marx are being highlighted and glamorized on college campuses around the country. This is (part of) the end result of the left’s successful late 1960’s vow to embark on “the long march through the institutions.” They have been remarkably successful in doing this, and now have total control of most of the federal government, mainstream media, Hollywood, academia, corporate boardrooms, Big Tech, and Wall Street, among other entities. This was achievable largely due to the fecklessness, cravenness and greed of the Republican Establishment, which, when push comes to shove, always backs down when leftists, media and The Deep State (Swamp) call them names. If these RINOs were serious, they would take these childish and vacuous attacks as a badge of honor. But, of course, they aren’t serious and don’t really believe in anything greater than themselves.

Leftists, often in league with foreign actors, know if they erase and/or impugn the very notion of American greatness and history, they can eventually uncouple the American people from their dedication to the nation.

And then statues of Jefferson, Washington, and Lincoln are destroyed or moved—and busts of Marx and Chairman Mao adorn college campuses.

Hell, let’s get rid of any and all commemorations of Lewis & Clark, the Wright Brothers, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Dr. Jonas Salk, FDR, JFK, and Ronald Reagan, among others-- and replace them with images of Pol Pot, Kim Jong un, Ida Amin Dada, Hugo Chávez, Nicolas Máduro, Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamene Jean-Claude Duvalier hori, Jean-Claude (“Baby Doc”) Duvalier, Justin Trudeau, and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. That’s democracy!

These are extremely volatile and dangerous times for representative democracies. Authoritarians are everywhere ascendant.

In America, there is no viable way forward other than with a Trump, Desantis, or Cruz. And then only if each of them put away any interpersonal enmity. If they don’t, they will have proven that even they care more about themselves than their country.

In the case of the United States, the way forward means going back to where we were just 2 years ago: with historically low unemployment, energy independence, and confidence in our future.



Proof Positive That China Is A Bigger Threat Than Russia


Memo to anyone who believes Russia is a bigger threat to the U.S. and the West in general than China is: Russia is reportedly now asking China for help with weapons and materials for its war against Ukraine. Think about that.

Second memo to anyone who believes Russia is a bigger threat to the U.S. and the West in general than China is: China’s economy is many times the size of Russia’s. It also manufactures much of the world’s modern consumer goods. And it currently dictates much of what the rest of the world can manufacture because it manufactures many of the computer chips and other necessities for doing so. Moreover, it is buying up land and ports around the world and otherwise positioning itself to dictate to other nations with its staggering in scope belt and road initiative.

Third memo to anyone who believes Russia is a bigger threat to the U.S. and the West in general than China is: Though perhaps less brutish than Russia’s, China’s leaders are cleverer, more forward-looking, and in some ways more diabolical, in plotting their nation’s future vis-à-vis everyone else on earth.

 Sickeningly, it is already clear that the winner of the Russia-Ukraine War will be…China. Perhaps even more nauseatingly, the country that will ultimately weather the COVID-19 pandemic in the best shape structurally and economically will almost certainly be…China, the nation that recklessly—if not deliberately-- loosed the plague on the world.

Western nations appear to have been somewhat awakened to harsh external realities by Putin’s assault on Ukraine. That is a good thing, such as it is. Russia under Putin is hostile to our interests and sensibilities. However, if the same Western nations cannot pry themselves from their recent obsessions with “climate change,” “gender fluidity,” and “preferred pronouns” long enough to mount a sober, united,  and sustained challenge to the erstwhile Middle Kingdom’s current designs on world hegemony, their goose will be cooked. And that is not an ancient Chinese secret.

But perhaps there is still hope. For, as Sun Tzu said, “Victory comes from finding opportunities in problems.

 For those of us living in Western countries currently beset by problems, the next chance we get to elect leaders who care more about the survival of their nations than they do about appearing “woke” will be an opportunity not to be squandered.
