Mexico’s soccer fans acted like they always act, but this time their team lost to the USA. The Clippers beat the Mavericks and now run Los Angeles. Jon Rahm got screwed out of a million bucks by the PGA. Serena got her ass kicked at Roland Garros. Federer pulled a punk move by withdrawing the way he did. The league needs to come down hard on these cheaters. And the Reds swept the Cardinals. I’m sure there’s a lot more, but that’s what I came up with for sports.
English dandy Beau Brummel was born on this day. He shares it with pioneer in mass child abuse Susan Blow, artist Paul Gaugin, marathon legend Clarence DeMar, actress Jessica Tandy, crooner Dean Martin, pitcher/announcer Herb Score, sportswriter Bert Sugar, Libyan politician (who shouldn’t have given up his WMDs) Muammar Gaddafi (or one of the other myriad spellings), catcher Thurman Munson, actor Liam Neeson, musical genius Prince Rogers Nelson, idiot Mike Pence, rocker Gordon Gano, hockey great Mike Modano, adventurer Bear Grylls, overachieving basketball player Allen Iverson, tennis player Anna Kournikova, and Canadian person Michael Cera.
Not a bad list. And now on to…the links!
The last of a group of brave men passes away. God bless him and all the others that fought to end that mass murder. He appears to have gone on and lived a very full life afterward as well. And he deserved it.
California does something well! Unfortunately, it was still a waste of taxpayer dollars. Also, they will probably not compete next year, as they won’t have any tap water.
Some good news. At least he’s not a complete idiot, as he’s apparently read the constitution’s section on who runs elections. Sorry to all the progressives, whose heads are exploding. You should push him until he leaves the party. That’ll show him!
And even more good news! How this guy hasn’t been forced out already is a complete mystery.
“Inciting”. I don’t think he thinks it means what it actually means. Also, they’ll know exactly how long to ban him based on whether he decides to run for a House seat or not. Because silencing him politically is the real goal.
This guy gets it! Although I wouldn’t exactly call him a former NBA star. “Former player” would suffice. Anyway, let’s hope he gets known more for this than his playing career.
Los Angeles government finally getting around to solving the big problems. Sorry, they’re not doing anything about the gazillion homeless in the city, but are gonna fine people for feeding peacocks. Why? Because it’s Los Angeles County, that’s why.
Allen West is out as Texas GOP head. Which undoubtedly means he’s running for statewide office.
A song for little Lilibet. I hope you enjoy it even if she doesn’t.
Now get out there and have a great day, friends!
I found a pirated stream and watched the Logan Paul vs Mayweather boxing thing last night. I found it to be really boring. My boredom stopped when a piece of my toilet self-destructed and I had to shut off the water to avoid flooding. Fun! Also, I have a new job which is too new to be screwing around on sites like this, but here I am. Happy Monday Glibs!
Sorry about your shitter.
But it could have been worse.
Yeah, it wasn’t shitty, just wet.
My wife works in a hospital. When patients shit themselves they call it a code brown.
I hope they called the one in that pic a “Code Bono”, because it’s massive.
Yeah that looks like it broke the record for Courics.
Is she carrying a someone’s baby?
Jesus. That rivals the famed Viking coprolite on display in a museum.
I LOST 6 POUNDS THAT DAY!
Feeling blue, Waffles?
I liked this description of paul
The fight between one of the greatest boxers in history and one of the best YouTube personalities in his family ended in predictable fashion on Sunday night as Floyd Mayweather danced around Logan Paul for eight rounds without inflicting any real damage.
Given what was on the line, i.e. nothing. It was the most sane way to collect the money. I can only blame myself for paying it any attention.
Sorry about your toilet.
Congratulations on your new job!
Never buy the toilet that has Alexa installed. It knows you’re getting free Pay per View and will initiate the self destruct sequence.
Manchin’s surprised me, I figured he’d parlay his opposition into massive pork for his state and he’d sell out but he has more sense than I thought it seems. Maybe I’m too cynical.
He still could, I suppose. But this came across as a pretty definitive statement, not a means to open negotiations.
I am worried that this is exactly what it is. He is holding out for a trillion in pay-offs so the can have a chance to still win the election if he lets team blue fuck the country over. And considering the dems now think money is just printed, not an artifact of wealth and wealth creation, and thus a limited resource unless you want rampant inflation, they might offer it to him…
It could be a negotiation tactic but, as Sloopy said, he didn’t leave himself much wiggle room.
I’m thinking Manchin wants to be reelected as a Democrat in the fourth most Republican state, and this is a part of the reelection strategy to get enough crossover voters.
This. The dude has been around the circus tent more than a few tours and sees the writing on the clown sheets. Dems just don’t have enough juice to make it worthwhile, not after what happened with 0care.
The dems stole the election and now they’re treating the country like stolen property. They seem to realize that they might not pull it off again any time soon. They better get all the power grabbing in they can, while the gettin’s good.
I can feel the hate flowing on twitter.
How is that different from any other day?
So…a normal Monday?
That’s to be expected on Twitter, the most insane of the social media platforms.
Assyl.io has a lot of crazies on it.
It’s pretty astounding to me that a senator from WV is the most powerful man in the government right now. The he seems loyal to WV and not to his party is doubly astounding.
How can 1 senator join with 50 senators to thwart the will of the other 49?
Tyranny of the majority!
“He’s an asshole for holding up bipartisan legislation!”*
*that won’t get a single crossover vote and will require the VP to be the tiebreaker for
48 Democrats and 2 “independents” are bi-partisan, aren’t they?
I’ve heard that Republican voters approve even if the Republicans they elected oppose, so it is bipartisan.
Mind readers read minds.
If the Senate was a copy of the house, this wouldn’t have happened!!!
He’s just the most powerful man in the upper chamber of the legislative branch.
The most powerful man is still the one who can simply write EOs with the force of law while the judiciary sits in their collective ass and lets him get away with it.*
*this applies to every president for the last several decades, not just Biden
Preach it brother.
Overturning making law through EOs would endanger their racket of making law through rulings.
Robert Byrd rolls over in his grave.
If my neighbors and I are an example of the rest of the state of West Virginia then the sheer number of phone calls and email his office has been getting must be enormous. I have probably called and sent emails asking for his opposition on various things 20 times this year alone. My neighbors are very active as well. When he came back after the impeachment vote expecting to be lauded for his sage choice he instead got a face full of vitriol.
I don’t know what his long-term plans are but on a local morning show that he called into right after the impeachment vote he mentioned that he didn’t know if he was running in 2024 and was leaning against it. He is the former governor of the state and does have a large residence here so there is a slim very slim chance that he actually cares what West Virginia thinks.
At least there’s a chance Mitt genuinely does not care what Utahns think, and we should be grateful that the disgraced governor even deigned to carpet bag his way over here.
So you’re saying there’s a chance?
Why how dare he listen to his constituents and not the prog-tards on the coasts!
He’s up for reelection in 2024. If it was 2022, I’d say his motivation was to get reelected, but 2024 is still a bit out. A lot more can happen in that time.
“Manchin’s surprised me”
I don’t trust him. He’s waiting for a big payday. So he’ll surprise you again when he suddenly folds and votes in lockstep with the commies.
He may not even know it yet, but he’s gonna fold like a cheap suit.
They’ll find his weak point. Is it money? Is it power? Is it nepotism? Is it skeletons in the closet? Is it withering from threats to his family?
The prog-fascists don’t tolerate dissent.
At this point, probably money. He’s probably ready to sail off into the sunset of glory. Maybe he’ll buy the island next door to the one Roberts purchased with his boatload of democrat cash.
They jumped the shark by giving his wife a sinecure. What else will they offer him before the end?
“When you listen to Donald Trump talk now, when you hear the language he’s using now, it is essentially the same things that the Chinese Communist Party, for example, says about the United States and our democracy,” she said.
“When he says that our system doesn’t work … when he suggests that it’s, you know, incapable of conveying the will of the people, you know, that somehow it’s failed — those are the same things that the Chinese government says about us,” Cheney continued. “And and it’s very dangerous and damaging … and it’s not true.”
You mean the exact same thing the Democrats have been saying about the Electoral College for the past four and a half years? Or their whining about how pissant states like Wyoming get just as many Senators as California and thereby thwart the Will of the People on an ongoing basis?
But Trump singlehandedly shredded the Constitution.
Yeah, somehow using all available legal means to prevent your ouster in an obviously compromised election is worse than siccing the alphabets on a new incoming administration by using fraud deceit. Sounds legit.
When we do it it has merit, when the other side does it it doesn’t. The Reps and the Dems both play this game although the rhetorical condemnations, primarily by the left, have stepped up in intensity lately.
Cheney is just interviewing for a new job in 2023.
Dynastic Democracy seems, to me at least, just as oxymoronic and failure prone as the Dynastic Communism of the DPRK.
Also from the Democrats who care so much about respecting the results of elections:
– “Teh Rooshians INTERFERED!!!!!!11”
– “B-b-but Hillary won the popular vote, so she should be the actual president!”
The Senate keeps”pissant” States like Wyoming ( or you know Vermont, but mentioning that never happens) from being more that colonies of California, and the only reason that they have to stay in the union. But yeah stay mad.
I think it is very likely that if we hadn’t had a federalist system the trans-Appalachian areas would have broken off rather than become states. It was a near run thing as it was, honestly.
But sure… lets just toss all that on the dustbin of history. Surely we have perfected the New Soviet Man ^W^W^W Progressive Heart this time!
It was the Federalists in New England that first threatened secession over the admission of the southern and western territories. The Progressive love of central authority traces back to them.
He’s killing our democracy. And by democracy, I mean communism.

Yep! Big Sean’s up!
You pick your targets, and work backwards to establish a set of rules which will allow you to confiscate their ill-gotten gains. That’s what tax justice means.
Imagine if these apparatchiks and cognoscenti put that much effort into doing something productive and adding value to people’s lives? Why, humanity might have expanded beyond this wee rock and opened up unimagined opportunities. Nah… better to think of increasingly clever ways to steal from others.
Maybe Edit Faery will bless you.

It’s going to be funny seeing all the major companies incorporating from Somalia or Madagascar or whatever countries haven’t signed on to this global extortion scheme.
I bet Ireland is really starting to rethink that whole Euro thing.

Janet Yellen, the US Treasury secretary, on Saturday told the Reuters news agency that she expected Facebook and Amazon to be covered by the proposal.
“It will include large profitable firms and those firms, I believe, will qualify by almost any definition,” she said.
A segmentation approach would mean a company like Amazon would pay tax in countries such as the UK on profits of subsidiaries such as Amazon Web Services, its lucrative web hosting arm. AWS made a margin of 30% in 2020, according to the Fair Tax Foundation.
The US tech firm ended 2020 with more than $13.5bn in annual operating profits from annual AWS revenue of $45.4bn, up nearly 30% year on year.
Sources said that while the G7 sealed an over-arching agreement, details about how to carve up the revenues of big corporations into their constituent parts for tax purposes had yet to be agreed.
It is possible that some businesses will be able to rejig their operations to offset profits against loss-making units to remain under the 10% threshold, unless tough rules are in place.
Alex Cobham, chief executive of Tax Justice Network, said: “If the OECD cannot ensure Amazon is in scope, not only will it fail to meet the public demand for fairness here, it will also offer a blueprint for other major multinationals to escape this element of the reform.”
I dont love amazon but the last thing world governments need is more money. I cannot understand how sone people think governments will become better if only they had more money
“Money is the root of all evil” doesn’t apply to government, apparently. In fact, it supposedly solves everything.
Like a gateway of plenary indulgences, taking a government job cleanses the soul of all sin.

Morning, Sloopy (et alia).
Have to say on the Anna Kournikova birthday — I would have gone with “The perfect lure for oh so many phishing attempts”. Inextricably linked in my mind to malware, phishing and viruses now.
Good morning, Sloop!
Solid birthday list today.
Why are non-proggies still on Facebook? What possible value can it bring? The censorship alone should have sent people rushing for the exits. And not just Trump.
Most of the right wingers I know are on it for the local buying and selling of goods and services. It seems to be very effective for that.
Yup, that and local groups that coordinate on Facebook.
There are local disc golf things that I miss out on because I refuse to spend one second more than necessary on Facebook. Wife disabled her account and then re-enabled it after realizing how out of the loop it put her for certain groups and activities.
Yes to both Stinky and Trashy. Full disclosure: I’ve used facebook marketplace with some success.
Also, some bars and restaurants I know only update their facebook page with goings-on/specials. While you can view those pages without a facebook account, facebook puts quite annoying pop-ups on the page if you aren’t logged in. Also I think your interaction with the page (like sending messages to whomever runs the page) is limited without an account.
I intentionally set up my current facebook account so that facebook knows very little about me.
That is the only reason my wife is on it…for connecting with her clients that find her via Facebook. Other than that, its a cesspool.
How else are those people gonna bicker with their neighbors and post pics of their grandkids? I suppose there’s Nextdoor, but FB is still king.
Nextdoor ties you to an address that they can’t even group correctly into neighborhoods.
For me, it’s the distributed communities of special interests — orchids, Japanese gardens, killifish, dwarf cichlids, some resolutely apolitical sf groups. I “miss out” on all the political ranting and Twitter-like nonsense, so it works for me.
I had to give it up when it got a little too much Re-Friending. You had your chance, Girls. Haven’t touched it in a decade.
Exactly this. I miss a few shooting, backpacking, and herpetology-related Facebook groups. Sometimes.
The political and COVID-related ranting just got to be too much.
Never been on Faccunte, and I will be honest and admit that while I have sometimes wondered if I should have, every day I find a million reasons that my choice was the right one (for me, for sure).
It’s kind of amazing to me, I see essentially none of this in my FB feed.
I pretty much don’t do ‘friends’, unless I’m tight IRL with the person, and have everything set to ‘private’. The closest I get to politics is sf author Neal Asher, who would pretty much fit in here, and the Mises and Cato links. Those latter 2 I generally scroll past after reading the headline.
I never joined Facebook. It’s all about MySpace. I’ve never been bothered a single time by a policial rant over there.
How do digital tumbleweeds work, anyway? 😉
News like this shit only serves to make the argument that the left chose to treat the supposed pandemic as a political tool. Once it was evident that even though the damned thing was engineered and escaped a lab, it was not as deadly as they thought, they decided to use it to get rid of the people opposing the globalist leadership agenda. And you know who was at the top of that list of people the globalist marxist movement hated.
The orange one, yes….
And you know who was at the top of that list of people the globalist marxist movement hated.
The elderly, the obese, and those with comorbidities? Because that’s almost exclusively who it killed.
Like zombieland the fatties were the first to go
The well marbled always get it first.
Killed a lot of small businesses and destroyed a lot of wealth, too.
The virus didn’t do that. Governments did.
PEOPLE BEFORE PROFITS!!!!!!!!!
They are equally happy to destroy profits before people.
The only people these fuckers care about are themselves and their kids. Their goal is to destroy the system they see is a threat to their hold on power because credentialed mediocrity and the fact their kids are even dumber and more destructive, bodes very ill for them.
“And you know who was at the top of that list of people the globalist marxist movement hated.”
Alex Jones ?
We should put all those systems under the care and control of the federal government
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Sunday warned in stark terms that the US power grid is vulnerable to attacks.
Asked By CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” whether the nation’s adversaries have the capability of shutting it down, Granholm said: “Yeah, they do.”
“There are thousands of attacks on all aspects of the energy sector and the private sector generally,” she said, adding, “It’s happening all the time. This is why the private sector and the public sector have to work together.”
When those filthy Roooshun hackers tamper with our USA Number One Energy Co-operative, we can declare war.
So now I get why the Biden admin told us all that this state protected criminal enterprise (Anyone believe that a authoritarian like Putin would have these crooks running this sham in his country without knowing at a minimum who they are?) was a private sector problem. If they let it happen and cause economic pain, they can make an argument for the state to take over (rather than prevent or punish those doing the criminal activity). Cause with these people it is always about taking advantage of the crisis to centralize and take more power…
I think it’s a little naive to believe the US (I mean teenagers working out of the garage) isn’t dabbling with tech interventions.
‘Course that would be anti ethical and we’re beyond that.
Youtube has been pushing a political ad in front of every single video I watch recently–something about Mitch McConnell not investigating THE INSURRECTION.
It’s one of the ads that you cannot upvote or downvote (why do they always seem to take away that functionality with political ads?). You can skip after a few seconds, but I’m tired of this.
Just wait until their autoplay algorithm starts trying to ram Jordan Peterson down your throat no matter what you’re watching. I don’t have anything against the dude but damn.
The algorithm mostly shows me bikini try-on hauls
What sucks is than many chicks no longer show their ass because apparently that can get the video demonetized as inappropriate for advertisers
The puritans always screw it up for everyone. Lauren Alexis’ ass shouldn’t be censored.
This. My particular annoyance is their insistence that I watch videos about Lord of the Rings, Mindcraft, Star Wars, and EU4. I’ve never clicked on those videos and have disliked and said Don’t Show This Channel a thousand times over but apparently I fall under the sci-fi/fantasy dork type according to their myopic, brain dead algorithm. And nevermind the political bullshit. No matter how many times I say no thanks they just keep coming. For example, a few weeks ago YT wouldn’t let up on the Hate Evil Isreal vids.
Maybe when they show it to you the thirtieth time you’ll realize you actually do like it after all. It’s infuriating and they do it on purpose, if you erase your history and look at innocuous bullshit the algorithm is highly capable of serving up relevant results.
‘(why do they always seem to take away that functionality with political ads?).’
Because the people at YT are bought and paid for hacks who push an agenda no matter how many times you ignore or dislike a video and the ads forced upon you are an extension of that?
Ad Block is your friend, ya know.
I’m using Brave and Youtube figured out a way to circumvent their ad blocking a few weeks ago. I’m hopeful that Brave will fix it.
In general, I don’t install extensions/add-ins to my browser.
Relevant to this and my remarks above on FB, I find YouTube far more toxic than FB. I avoid it strenuously, only occasionally grabbing links to download videos. I never log in, I almost never browse. On this site, I use my browser’s preview function to see what music y’all are linking, but that’s about it.
YouTube, for me, isn’t as bad as other social media. I want to get off of it, and have moved over to Rumble for what I can, but until Hickok45 and a few others migrate, YouTube is a necessary evil. Granted, I don’t do any political/current events stuff on youtube.
I get the same stupid LinkedIn ad all the time.
Some funny news:
Baby Name ‘Karen’ Plunges In 2020, Hits Lowest Ranking Since 1927.
That’s a powerful meme.
My mom is a Karen. She hates that stupid meme.
That originated on black twitter so hating it could be interpreted as the big R
I’ll bet. My SIL is a Karen, as well. She said she’s thinking about using her middle name!
Fuck that! If my name were that I’d wear it loud and proud!
The Dicks of the world agree.
The other Dycks.
It’s always an event when the Dycks slip out.
That is so queer.
Heh, one of my SILS is also named Karen. She’s not a Karen though, actually pretty nice when she’s not sober, which is pretty much 24/7.

Kamala Harris Greeted In Guatemala With ‘Go Home’ and ‘Trump Won’ Messages
And the press will cover her cookies more than that, I bet.
Hasn’t she been delivering her “cookies” for years?
Nice. A big difference between Obama’s tenure and the current one is that Biden is openly despised by everyone except the center-left. It’s a tremendous headwind for the administration. Too bad the media will carry water for them like none other.
Everyone knows those Guatamalans are racist white supremacists who hate Mexicans. That’s why that stand with Trump. Getting a jab at the first Indian and Black VP was just icing on their Racist torta.
But seriously, it’s funny that every foreigner knows that the quickest way to get under the current admin is to claim Trump won.
I have to give Pat Buchanan credit for still being able to verbally skewer the dimwits.
Sunday, Harris, who is also Biden’s point person on the border crisis, will be in Guatemala to learn what causes Latin American peoples of color to leave the land they were born in and travel 1,000 miles for a chance to live, work and raise their families in a nation established by and for white supremacists.

Stupid black folks don’t know what’s good for them
The Biden administration knew the key to a successful Covid vaccination campaign would be reaching the most vulnerable populations. But more than five months in, even a blueprint that’s worked with other ethnic and racial groups isn’t doing enough to win over Black Americans.
Less than a quarter of Black Americans had received their first Covid-19 shot as of June 3, amid a weekslong stagnation that has defied the government’s ramped-up effort to accelerate vaccinations and reach the nation’s most vulnerable communities.
The slowdown has put Black Americans behind the pace set over the past month by other racial and ethnic groups tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The trend line worries health officials and experts who say the immunization drive is running into a particularly complex web of distrust, outreach challenges and stubborn barriers to access.
“It’s a tough layer that we have to address — it requires relationship building and it’s going to take a little longer,” said Octavio Martinez, executive director of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health, who sits on the White House’s Covid-19 Health Equity Task Force. “We have a systemic issue here.”
One of the task force’s first assignments was recommending ways to build trust in the vaccines and effectively roll them out to those marginalized communities — chief among them Black Americans who are dying from Covid-19 at disproportionate rates. Some early ideas were incorporated into the administration vaccination plan crafted within the White House, task force members said. Yet as the panel has shifted its focus to other, long-term health equity issues in recent months, vaccine disparities have persisted.
They’re like recalcitrant children who have to be led around by the hand and shown what to do.
I have noticed that mask wearing among blacks is higher than among whites in our area. Perhaps it’s associated with the unwillingness to take the vaccine.
I told my wife the same observation last night. Besides athletes on the playing field, I don’t know that I’ve seen a black person in person or on TV without a mask on in over a year.
Must be all the Karens stepping up and shaming them.
Yes, it was noticeable in Memphis.
They’re so backward that they can’t even manage to beg I.D. from the Gubmint! Someone the other day said that they should start using darts on recalcitrant people.
This is a real pickle. Either Dems come out and openly say they don’t think black people are smart enough to do what’s best for them or they acknowledge that black people might be skeptical of an unproven government vaccine based on past experiences like Tuskegee, which were carried out by Team Blue.
I can not for the life of me imagine why African Americans might be wary of the federal government injecting them with new and relatively untested things under the guise of being for their own good.
Nope…. no idea whatsoever…
Sounds logical, but on the other hand the vaccine is being given to White people too.
Well. they say they’re giving the vaccine to wypipo, but how do you know it’s not a placebo?
That’s a major conspiracy theory going around the anti-mask groups/Reopen groups that I’m in: That government officials received a placebo and not the vaccine.
The virus was apparently engineered to kill POC more. So who’s to say the vaccine wasn’t engineered the same? Progs were huge fans of Eugenics and are huge fans of abortion. Maybe they’re just upping their game.
It was engineered to kill
POCpeople with a Vitamin D deficiency.
“people with a Vitamin D deficiency.”
So everyone in northern latitudes who don’t supplement?
Health experts cite myriad factors: Ingrained skepticism of a federal government that’s historically failed minorities when it comes to public health, difficulties getting the transportation or time off to seek out a vaccine or a lack of community outreach, among others.
At the same time, Black people in several areas have accounted for an increasing proportion of Covid-19 cases and deaths — including in Washington, D.C., where government data indicate they’ve made up nearly 8 in 10 new cases and close to 90 percent of deaths since May 1.
“We all realize that this is the critical moment in the struggle,” said Reed Tuckson, founder of the Black Coalition Against Covid-19, which is coordinating with the administration on its vaccination campaign. “It’s going to take a lot of effort from a lot of different places.”
We just need to get more non profit community activists involved.
difficulties getting the transportation or time off to seek out a vaccine or a lack of community outreach, among others.
Ah, yes. The soft bigotry of low expectations. And it’s met with applause from black “leaders” rather than derision.
Burning down the CVS probably didn’t help.
including in Washington, D.C., where government data indicate they’ve made up nearly 8 in 10 new cases and close to 90 percent of deaths since May 1.<with?
Not mentioned is that blacks are just short of 50% of the population, and that the 90% of deaths is all of 30 people*.

I was a theater kid in the pre-internet days. Nobody knw what the line “this Brummel of cats” in “Bustopher Jones” meant. After a few years, we just accepted it was something and stopped caring what.
Don’t forget that his shit is also all retarded…
Kids might know very little about the past these days, but you can bet every school kid alive will have “1619” pounded into his head.
You could really be a Beau Brummel baby, if you just give it half a chance!
“I have seen a real explosion in the Hispanic community being reached out to in their own language,” said Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, adding that the challenge in the Black community has been finding both the most effective messengers and approaches. “The things that have created disparities in the first place, we have fixed some of them. But not all of them, and not to a large enough degree.”
They should look for somebody who speaks jive.

I blame Tammany Hall. When ten generations have lived under an openly corrupt government, it becomes so normalized that a non-openly corrupt government is unthinkable and disgusting.
Western world in a nutshell…
The corrupt & inept run the show, and they want to make sure they stay in power since their ineptitude can only result in things collapsing eventually into chaos and hell. That’s why America is doing a reboot of the Chinese cultural revolution using the whole CRT cult shit.
It’s more like the DPRK wherein the family becomes the ruling party.
Inept? Unfortunately, they are ept enough to keep fooling the American voter.
Not a difficult task when they keep dumbing them down consistently and are hard at work turning them into dumber than a fucking rock with this marxist shit.

Sentient virus is stalking your children, America!
“As adults get vaccinated and become more protected and immune to this virus, the virus is still in the community looking for a vulnerable host — and pediatric patients fit that description,” Bicette said.
Severe Covid-19 is not limited to older Americans. A study by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention examined more than 200 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 who were likely hospitalized primarily for Covid-19 in the first three months of 2021.
The report said while there were no deaths, nearly a third were admitted to intensive care units and roughly 5% required invasive mechanical ventilation.
200! LIKELY hospitalized PRIMARILY for the plague.
What are the odds these are all children with one or more serious pre-existing conditions?
“a vulnerable host — and pediatric patients fit that description”
See some were wrong when they said the panic would go away with OMB. The panic has yet to outlived its usefulness

You know somewhat maybe, I think.

David Dushman, the last surviving soldier who helped liberate Auschwitz-Birkenau, died on Saturday at the age of 98, the Jewish community of Munich and Upper Bavaria said in a statement on its website.
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, who holds the key Democratic vote in the evenly divided Senate, said Sunday he will oppose a sweeping election and campaign finance reform bill and instead encouraged his colleagues to pass voting rights legislation that can garner bipartisan backing.
He’s right. However, the Constitution does grant Congress the ability to override states on some aspects of elections for Federal office. Article I, Section 4:
The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.
And on choosing Presidential Electors from Article II, Section 1:
The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.
HR 1 isn’t quite as unconstitutional as it is made out to be.
If the chamber draws up articles of impeachment against the governor, thus triggering a trial in the state Senate, the legislation would also cover the upper chamber’s costs.
Call me when this actually happens. I’d like to see it happen, but I don’t see this happening unlike the Newsom recall.
A top Facebook executive has spoken out to defend the company’s two-year ban of Donald Trump, saying the former president crossed a ‘red line’ against inciting violence during the U.S. Capitol riot.
“Inciting violence.” Huh. Doubleplusgood redefining of words.

Eight days ago I posted about Marion Millar of Airdrie, Scotland, who was summoned to a police station for a compulsory interview over allegations that she had posted homophobic and transphobic tweets.
She has now been charged.
“Activist Marion Millar charged with sending homophobic and transphobic tweets”, reports the Times.
Marion Millar, 50, from Airdrie, was charged under the Malicious Communications Act for tweets published in 2019 and 2020. If convicted she faces up to two years in prison.
The messages investigated by officers are understood to include a retweeted photograph of a bow of ribbons in the green, white and purple colours of the Suffragettes, tied around a tree outside the Glasgow studio where a BBC soap opera is shot.
It is one at least six tweets reported to Police Scotland. The nature of the others is unclear. Millar, who owns an accountancy business, was bailed to appear at Glasgow sheriff court on July 20.
Her supporters said that the prosecution was an attack on the rights of women to express themselves.
Added later: The Times has turned off the comments to its account of the Marion Millar case, presumably for fear of committing contempt of court, so the readers have taken to making veiled allusions to it when commenting on other stories in the paper’s Scotland section.
A couple of the Scottish papers have also reported on the case
Stickers are hate
I don’t think I would react kindly to the local constables in such a case.
Imprisoning someone for a tweet is just slightly over the line of things I will put up with.
Question for the legally minded, doesn’t FOIA mandate the release of documents? Why is it that every time I hear about FOIA it’s in conjunction with a lawsuit that was forcing the government to follow the law?

Donald Trump’s words will “surely kill again,” Steve Schmidt, former GOP strategist and co-founder of the anti-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project has said.
…Schmidt, a former Republican strategist who resigned from the Lincoln Project in February amid numerous controversies at the organization, said too much media coverage had wrongly suggested that the closure of Trump’s blog was evidence of the former president’s declining influence over the country and the Republican Party.
“Some have posited that Trump’s loss, social media bans, and inability to sustain a blog are evidence of his decline, irrelevance and diminishment,” he wrote on Twitter on Saturday.
He added: “These people are fools and their delusions are dangerous for the survival of American democracy. We are at an hour that requires people to wake up. Trump is powerful and he is a clear and PRESENT danger to our democratic society and national stability.”
“Trump has the ability to kill and destroy with the spoken word. His words; his lies, delusions and conspiracy theories have caused bloodshed. That is what happened on January 6th. His words will surely kill again.”
Murderous Orange Authoritarian is going to kill us all. Don’t you remember how he had his palace murder squad round up all those pesky disrespectful journalists and put them to the sword? He’ll do it to you, too.
That’s pretty bold – recycling the co-founder of the organization dedicated to pedophilia and corruption – or was it corruption and pedophilia?
I was going to say, weren’t all the Lincoln project guys outed for sexual perversions
Brian Stelter can point at the Lincoln Project and say “At least I’m not that pathetic.”

The idea of OMB tearing through the press room with a katana (although he may be more of a claymore guy) does bring a smile to my face.
Huh. 19 Canadian beers and still standing. God rest ye merry Gentlemen… I need food and sleep. See you tomorrow.
I need sleep too – shouldn’t have stayed up to watch the US-Mexico game. But damn, what a game – marred of course by the inescapable incompetence of CONCACAF refereeing.
A group of Democratic advocacy groups that conducted a postmortem analysis of 2020 congressional elections concluded that the party’s lack of a core economic and pandemic recovery argument contributed to its losses in the House.
Democrats expected to expand their majority in the House, but the party only flipped three seats compared to the Republicans’ 15.
A former member of Congress told the groups that Democrats focused too much on why former President Trump was bad and not enough on why a Democratic majority would benefit voters.
“It was the lack of an economic plan that really hurt,” the groups wrote.
Some campaign teams told the groups that the party did not have a message beyond “Donald Trump sucks,” which may have led to split-ticket voting for Joe Biden as president and Republicans for down-ballot races.
When it came to the pandemic, they noted that a number of candidates, when discussing COVID-19, continued focusing on access to personal protective equipment, wearing masks and trusting science “without further connecting those issues to the critical necessity of re-opening the economy.”
I could have told them that, if they had paid me a million dollars.
I just wonder how hard “voters’ remorse” is going to swing the pendulum next time around. With any luck, it will be a bloodbath for the antidemocratic socialistas.
which may have led to split-ticket voting for Joe Biden as president and Republicans for down-ballot races
There, of course, is another possibility as to why Biden got many more votes than the downballot dems.
Speaking of Facebook, I just got a group chat notice with a bunch of my cousins also included on the list. It was selfie pics of some dude yanking his wank in a bathroom mirror.
Going to have to ask my cousins who they’ve been hanging with lately.
Interview with the psychiatrist lecturing at Yale’s Child Study Center who spoke about ‘unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.’:
“I wouldn’t say there is a distinction. For example, for white women, I do help a lot with passive-aggressiveness — not being able to use their voice, say things, feeling like there will be a negative consequence. White people have an intense level of guilt. I have never seen a level of guilt that I see among white people. I mean, white people don’t eat bread. Think about that. There have been wars all over the world over grains and bread and only here, white people are depriving themselves. Think about that shit. Everyone has this gluten allergy and you’re like, what the fuck is a gluten allergy? That’s a psychosomatic symptom. If you actually talk to a GI doctor, they’re going to say, “Well, there’s Celiac and there’s everything else” with a wink, and you know what the “everything else” is. It’s all the guilty gluten people.”
I mean, not wrong on the gluten rant, just not the cause that is being shoehorned into it.
That doctor is a psychopath who shouldn’t be anywhere near a patient.
Yeah, I definitely need to be lectured to about my “white privilege” by a Pakistani daughter of two doctors.
I guess America is so affluent that even our grievance mongers are outsourcing their labor to South Asians.
“‘unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way.’”
Talk about priveledge, that’s profoundly wasteful. Flaunt you wealth elsewhere.
“So why a revolver? Is the need to fantasize about a mechanical intermediary a result of your subconscious realization of your own impotence?”
I mean, if she doesn’t want to talk to me, I’m pretty much fine with that.
I worry though, that she might still want to talk at me.
63.5% of adults have been vaccinated but 79% are still wearing masks
Honestly both the free and brave part of your great country are going down.
Depends where you live at, i suppose.
I was seeing 50% ish of customer’s wearing them shopping over the weekend, plus all the staff.
I have asked some of the employees at places where the chin diaper mandate was dropped why they still wear theirs, and all said that it was to avoid the woke complaining Karens trying to destroy their business…
79% wore a face mask in the last seven days. Anyone who flew or visited a doctor in the last seven days counts. Let alone all those who donned a mask before entering a store because they wanted to be polite.
63.5% of adults have been vaccinated
79% are still wearing masks

In seriousness, there’s a bit of a spiritual impasse in the trashy household. We are aware of our spiritual responsibility of ministry to the society at large. We are also aware of our spiritual responsibility to raise our children to fear God and to be strong holders of the faith.
These days, those demands feel like they’re mutually exclusive. Obviously, masking and vaxxing isn’t some theological issue, but it’s a symptom of deeper issues in the culture that threaten to chew people like us up.
raise our children to fear God and to be strong holders of the faith. – don’t worry that will most likely be classified as child abuse in a few years
Trashy, you seem like the kind of guy that would be real fun to talk to in real life, face to face.
I was reading in Proverbs 5, where it is exhorted that children listen to the teachings of their parents. This makes sense when you consider that your parents love you and want your true happiness. It also struck me that such is a moral imperative of patey, and to make sure you raise kids to know wisdom.
Unfortunately it is the current fad to use your kids as a means to gain fashionable approval, by teaching them things that are popular, but often unwise.
Thanks! I hope to get the opportunity to talk face to face someday.
To me, this is a simple meshing of three pernicious trends that have been growing over the past few decades. First is the trend towards children as lifestyle accessories. Second is the trend towards politicizing everything. Third is the trend towards social Munchausen by proxy by finding “virtue” in victimization. If you’re a woke alphabet ally, merely having an ally child isn’t enough. You must have a queer child because that shows you have been divinely blessed by Gaia with a prophet, complete with enhanced victimhood powers.
When you’re right, you’re right.
I am reminded of the Ellen Jamesians (from The World According to Garp).
Let the proxy wars commence: Your child is only queer? My child is transgendered and transracial.

New Pandemic-Era Accessory: A Bracelet That Signals Your Boundaries
Event hosts are offering green, yellow or red wristbands to let people know if they can come in for that hug—or not. It can get little awkward; ‘The greens are just ready to party’
Lol, I remember when there was a fad of doing this (with buttons or stickers) at cons.
I’m gonna put mine on my junk. Green, of course.
The fact people can make money peddling this sort of bullshit snake oil tells you all you need to know about humanity. We are self selecting for the western world to implode and die.
“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”
― Robert Heinlein
I am amazed at how quickly we went from a we need to all be together and love one another to beware your fellow man, they might be dirty.
Shun the unclean!
We were never “all in this together”. That was never more than a throw-away line to morally intimidate people into compliance. I remember asking some idiot spouting that BS a few questions and quickly enough getting them to outright say just shut up and comply.
No not that ‘all in this together’ nonsense they put out over the course of the last year. I was speaking in general the whole BS “bullying is bad”, “human kindness” etc. they have been pushing for the past couple of decades.
Ah. My bad.
That was always BS, as well, though, wasn’t it? The people pushing it had no problem whatsoever with Twitter mobs, rampant bullying of some kids, etc. It was always a demand for non-bullying and kindness toward some people. But, if it isn’t universal, it isn’t opposition to bullying or promotion of kindness. It’s just rooting for your team.
Absolutely it was. The turnabout is what boggles my mind. And yes, it was always acceptable in their minds that some folk deserved to be bullied and such. It is why I hate people in general.
A tad bit complicated for me.

Is there one for “needs a ham sandwich afterwards”?
So, to see the hanky, you’d have to look at their butt. It seems like this would result in everyone circling one another like dogs at a park.
So you’re saying that I should stop wearing that blaze orange bandanna when I’m out hiking?
You do you. We won’t judge (and admit to it (to your face)).
You were one set of parentheses from trouble.
See, I’m reminded of the old joke.
A hunter sees a beautiful naked lady out in the woods. He asks her if she’s game. She replies yes, so he shot her.
Why would someone need to wear a piece of colored cloth to indicate that they are overweight?
Yeah, like that’s not going to be given a whole new meaning inside of hours of it’s release. I’d almost assume it was intentional.
It would be easier to see if it was an armband.
NY is still requiring schoolkiddies to be masked, indoors and out.
They are doing the most overt buck passing I’ve ever seen. They make a “plan” to let the tax veal ditch the masks, but then submit it to the CDC (on a Friday) and when the CDC doesn’t respond with “Super great plan! Implement immediately!” They say “Oh well, the CDC hasn’t approved out plan, muzzle up kinder!”
Chickenshits that won’t stand up to the union or the electorate. Such astounding leadership.
RIght! I read that today and LOL’d.
Why are they submitting a plan to the CDC in the first place?
For the exact same reason they didn’t really want a response, ass-covering.
This has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with satisfying the desires of the unions. I wish I could be more sympathetic. But, they vote for it. Maybe not everyone. But, enough. And if you publicly criticize the whole corrupt charade, you’ll be a lot more likely to be the one confronted and ostracized. At some point, it really doesn’t matter how much New Yorkers gripe. They’ve revealed their preferences.
Good morning everyone! I finally got to play some hockey this weekend, in beautiful and extremely hot Minnesota. At least I was in a cold rink most of the time. I also got to meet a Glib in real life for the first time, in the form of Tundra. He suggested a very good breakfast place and came to one of my games.
Hope you all have a great week and a great start to summer.
In my various travels I’ve had occasion to meet a good number of our fellow Glibs. It’s always a hoot.
Hi Kevin! Glad you made it back safely. Thanks again for the invite – sled hockey is fucking great!
Even the damned SCOTUS lefties decided this illegal immigration loophole shit couldn’t stand if you wanted to maintain the veneer of the law mattering….
Don’t worry, the dems have this immigration problem all figured out. They’re going to make the US so poor and unsafe that no one will want to come here. Pure genius!
“This decision will come as a blow to many Democrats. Sens.

Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.), Darren Soto (D-Fla.), and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)”
Seems like it’s a matter of a simple law change to make TPS a form of legal entry. And with all those senators on board, surely they can change the law no?
They are not as strong as they are projecting themselves to be.
They never are – it seems the more they project the more it is done from weakness.
“Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)”
Huh, long time since I’ve heard anything about the one of unwashed hair.

Of course, GoFundMe shut down the campaign to help Ocasio-Cortez’s grandmother.
Supposedly, the “family” said they wouldn’t take the money. GoFundMe said:
The beneficiary is the grandmother. Seems like somebody not the grandmother said to shut it down.
Heh, that’s a good one.

Dammit. They took my name for my female Krampus. Looters and moochers, the both of them.
To be fair, “cramp-puss” isn’t all that creative of a name.
We do not know this monster?
I was just making fun of the feminine wordplay that can be made with Krampus.?
Well, I wondered, but erred on the side of caution.
I am being “transgressive”, which, in my case, isn’t very much compared to other authors.
I was gonna say, “transgressive” has to go fairly far off the beaten path to be noticed these days. Especially when it comes to gender swapping traditional characters.
Sort of. Tropes that were transgressive 10 years ago have swapped places with things that were commonplace 10 years ago.
They are scandalized by a hereto same ethnicity and economic class couple that saves consummation until after marriage and remains faithful?
That goes in the “clean” and/or “inspirational” genre. Yes, “clean” (possibly “wholesome”) is now a genre.
I did a “waiting until marriage” romance, but I framed it as a feminist choice, not necessarily a religious one.
Who took it? Jen Psaki?
