Gentle readers, the stupid has been absolutely overwhelming since our last edition of Too Stupid To Survive, so take your blood pressure medication, and off we go!

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head and chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” “it is just too soon to tell” if Christmas gatherings will be advised in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

Fill in your preferred obscenity here: “_______________ you, Fauci!”  Obviously smarting from the backlash tidal wave, Fauci magnanimously gave us permission to have Halloween:

The CDC had to get in on the stupid too:

Is there anything Climate Change can’t do?

…Experts are blaming a growing phenomenon known as ‘global stilling’ – whereby measurable wind speeds across the world’s continental surfaces have decreased by as much as 15 per cent since 1980.

It must be awfully convenient to have that kind of “science.”  No matter what’s observed, it confirms the “Climate Change” narrative.  Wind: climate change.  No wind: climate change/global stilling.  Cold: climate change.  Heat: climate change.  Tuesday: climate change.  Day: climate change.  Night: climate change.  Here’s more:

And if you’re not already sufficiently annoyed:

VP Kamala Harris filmed a series of video purportedly to get kids involved in science.  They were not only excruciating, but didn’t even use real kids:

Vice President Kamala Harris’s YouTube space series featured child actors in its first installment.

The YouTube Original Series, entitled ‘Get Curious with Vice President Harris,’ is aimed at getting children interested in space and included an appearance by NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough from the International Space Station. But the children featured in the first installment of the series were child actors, including 13-year-old Trevor Bernardino.

In one scene, Harris tells the children that they are ‘going to learn so much,’ adding that they will ‘literally see the craters on the moon with your own eyes. With your own eyes. I’m telling you.’

The kid actors appear to be genuinely excited, and Harris seems to be revealing something to them that they don’t already know. The kids are relentlessly ebullient throughout the video.

Which is why they had to hire child actors.  Normal children, like normal adults, would be staring incredulously, thinking: “what the hell is wrong with this idiot?”

Because the last thing we would want to do is write mean things about people sworn to torture, rape and slaughter every one of us.

As usual, the Babylon Bee was ahead of the curve.

See what I mean?  How do you neuter a Lego? And as usual, Gavin Newsom is a raving lunatic:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed a host of bills into law on Friday, including AB 1084, which requires ‘gender neutral retail departments’ in toy stores, so that shoppers will not be encouraged some toys for girls and others for boys.

The bill, authored by Assembly member Evan Low (D-Campbell), declares that differences in products that are marketed to girls or boys are ‘unjustified,’ and that it is ‘inappropriate’ to imply they should be used by one gender instead of another.

Other reports suggest the bill’s sponsors think toy shops shouldn’t be trying to convince boys they’re boys and girls they’re girls.  They didn’t mention how long it will be before California passes a bill giving the state the power to determine gender.

That’s a good question.  Breitbart explains:

An analysis from a geospatial data company argues the number of trees planted in different neighborhoods nationwide is unequal along racial lines, and says the threat of ‘tree inequity’ is real and growing.

‘EarthDefine uses an Artificial Intelligence (AI) classification model to detect areas of an aerial image that are covered by trees, as opposed to other ground cover like shrubs, buildings and asphalt. They then calculate the percentage of the total land area that is covered by trees — a metric called ‘tree canopy cover,’ the San Francisco Chronicle reported and compared the California city’s tree cover with other U.S. cities.

What this really amounts to is these idiots have noticed some neighborhoods—like ghettos and homeless encampments—in cities don’t have any landscaping.  The only possible reason for this must be—you guessed it—RACISM!  So we’re going to spend billions to plant trees, which will quickly die from lack of care, because landscaping—tree equity–isn’t much of a priority for people living in those conditions when there are no police, and they’re spending much of their time dodging bullets.

Did you know women have vaginas?  The Lancet is just figuring that out–sort of:

The left’s war on women continues apace, seemingly with no end in sight. Transgender rights cases keep winding their way through the U.S. court system, school boards force gender identity/pronoun ideology on students and parents alike, and men who identify as women being increasingly welcomed into women’s bathrooms, locker rooms, sports leagues, etc.

While it may seem that all hope is lost for those who oppose the movement to rewrite women’s rights as we know them to the point of eradication in the name of ‘inclusiveness,’ they should not despair. Three recent outcries and the responses to them provide small but strategic victories to build upon.

First up is the prestigious British medical journal Lancet, which landed itself in some hot water this week after an article on ‘the cultural movement against menstrual shame’ in their most recent edition referred to women as ‘bodies with vaginas:

“The cultural movement against menstrual shame?!”  I’ve somehow missed that one.  I’m just not seeing adults running about taunting “bodies with vaginas” thus: “you menstruate! Shame! Shame!”  Of course I live in Wyoming which is uncommonly sane, so…

The backlash was so swift across the pond and here at home that Lancet editor-in-chief Richard Horton issued an apology of sorts in a statement on the controversy. Horton tripped over himself in trying to appear both woke and sensitive to the objections of women to being dehumanized:

‘The Lancet strives for maximum inclusivity of all people in its vision for advancing health. In this instance, we have conveyed the impression that we have dehumanised and marginalised women. Those who read The Lancet regularly will understand that this would never have been our intention. I apologise to our readers who were offended by the cover quote and the use of those same words in the review. At the same time, I want to emphasise that transgender health is an important dimension of modern health care, but one that remains neglected.’

Well, D/S/Cs—the party that just loves bodies with vaginas–certainly are.  In a sane state, this kind of thing would absolutely torpedo one’s campaign:

Bill Kristol, just to clarify, is a drooling Never Trumper:

And speaking of drooling, The New York Times wants to redesign the American flag. This is one of the least horrifying designs they’re suggesting:

In Kurt Schlichter’s Kelly Turnbull series, the People’s Republic is constantly changing it’s rainbow flag as one victim group or another gains power.  Unsurprisingly, no one can keep up.  No one can keep up with this either:

You and me too, miss:

Ah!  So that’s it!  Defunding the police causes crime!  Who knew it was so simple?

Ida Bae Wells, AKA Hannah Jones, is the author of The 1619 Project, so…    And yes, she’s obviously too dimwitted to understand she’s undermining her own anti-police rhetoric.  And speaking of dimwitted:

Yeah.  “Little things” like our open border, rampaging inflation, Afghanistan, skyrocketing gas and fuel prices, an unprecedented 30% rise in the national homicide rate, parents declared “domestic terrorists,” you know—little things.  This is precious:

Of course!  Out of control spending is “investment”—he learned that one from Obama—and adding trillions to the national debt is not adding trillions to the national debt.  Somehow I don’t think my bank will be impressed when I tell them spending more money than I have isn’t actually spending more money than I have.

If these are grownups, I’ll take Kamala’s child actors.  They have at least one marketable skill.  See what I mean?

Apparently her parents never told her lying is a bad thing.  And in the dementia sweepstakes:

Hey, she’s from Texas, so she ought to know, right?  Right?

‘Let me pronounce to my friends that the border is both sovereign and secure,’ Lee claimed. According to her, the problem is that ‘it is obviously subjected to biased and unfair narratives for political purposes.’

Who you gonna believe?  Her or your own lying’ eyes?  That must be why Biden so desperately cleared out the illegal’s under-the-bridge hovel.  He didn’t want Americans “subjected to biased and unfair narratives for political purposes.”  Of course, now they’re subjected to tidal waves of Haitians…  And speaking of lunatic narratives:

I really like ‘Override the parliamentarian.’ There’s a slogan to stir the soul! Not sure how the chant works, though. Not exactly euphonious. But the internal logic is right: if we don’t care about the rule of law at all, who cares about anything as inconvenient as parliamentary rules.

The ultimate irony is that by blocking the Golden Gate Bridge, the protestors were interfering with Bay Area liberals trying to get to work. What a great idea: annoy the people with the most sympathy for your cause (so long as you don’t sent any Haitians to camps in San Rafael or Mill Valley).

Yeah.  Preaching to–and pissing off–the choir.  Such people aren’t really big on irony, subtlety or humor of any kind.

He won’t even take questions from D/S/Cs behind closed and locked doors!

President Joe Biden’s staff members prevented the president from taking questions during a Democrat caucus meeting on Capitol Hill, amid high-stakes negotiations that have imperiled his multi-trillion-dollar agenda and exasperated the schism between the party’s corporatist and socialist factions.

Politico reporter Sarah Ferris said Biden offered to take questions from Democrat lawmakers upon concluding his remarks, but his staff members ‘jumped in.’

‘He didn’t take any questions,’ she said.

Of course that’s just as well, because when they let him take questions, he says stuff like this:

And this:

And in California, which has enormous power supply problems:

As blackouts and flex hours roil California, the state and the local utility responsible for its last nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, are pushing ahead with plans to shut it down.

This despite the fact that nuclear energy is clean carbon-free energy, and that the plant was built to operate for decades more.

Underlying the puzzling decision is a complicated morass of local politics, utility economics, and fear.

Nah.  It’s just plain stupidity and arrogance.  And so is this:

He was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy about the harassment Senator Sinema faced in the bathroom of Arizona State University, where she was speaking over the weekend.

‘Mr President, Mr. President, I’ve been talking about how you have 48 Democratic votes right now, the other two have been pressured over the weekend by activists. Joe Manchin had people on kayaks, show up to his boat. Senator Sinema last night was chased into a restroom. Do you think that those tactics are crossing a line?’ Doocy asked.

‘I don’t think they’re appropriate tactics but it happens to everybody,’ Biden said. ‘The only people it doesn’t happen to are people who have Secret Service standing around with them. So, it’s part of the process.’

Keeping gropin’ Joe under wraps is the best they can do.  Somehow, D/S/Cs never quite figure out they always eat their own.  And who knew it was this easy?

Portland officials are attempting to solve a spike in city gun violence, with traffic barrels instead of police.

According to the Portland Tribune, City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty ordered the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to install the barrels across a six-block area in the Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood which has seen an uptick in shootings, some of which have been perpetrated by high-speed drivers.

‘I’m directing PBOT to be more active and engaged in holistic solutions to community safety that can supplement police and other bureaus’ roles in this effort.’

Workers have installed eight traffic barrels near Southeast Woodstock Street and 72nd Avenue, and will add another 18 barrels next week.

Well, they’ve defunded the police, and chased a great many other off, so I guess plastic traffic barrels are the best they can do.  It’s little known violent criminals fear nothing so much as plastic traffic barrels.  Batman, maybe, but plastic traffic barrels for sure.  Though this dimwit is trying to help BLM and Antifa better prepare for burning everything down:

So much for assimilation:

President Joe Biden’s administration has turned Fort McCoy in Monroe County, Wisconsin, into a ‘small city’ for Afghans brought to the United States, including ‘culturally appropriate clothing and food,’ a new report details.

As part of Biden’s massive resettlement operation, about 53,000 Afghans are currently temporarily living on eight U.S. military bases in Wisconsin, New Jersey, Texas, Indiana, New Mexico, and Virginia.

Of course.  Because America is evil and we need to import more advanced and enlightened cultures, who engage in sophisticated cultural practices like trying to rape female American soldiers.  Back in 2013, I wrote about media commentator Kirsten Powers, who had just then written about her pretty much unwilling conversion to Christianity.  In that article, I asked:

What do you think, gentle readers?  Is it possible to be a committed Christian and a Leftist, or are they mutually exclusive, as I believe them to be?

Guess I was right, because God certainly wants nothing so much as illegal aliens chasing women into bathroom stalls:

Kirsten Powers, a far-left commentator at CNN, joined many of her CNNLOL colleagues in justifying the outright harassment of people they disagree with.

This must be the “investment” Joe has been blathering about:

While speaking with Fox News this week, President Joe Biden’s former Border Patrol chief, Rodney Scott, confirmed that under Biden’s leadership, U.S. taxpayers are paying millions of dollars each day ‘to not’ build a wall along its border with Mexico.

What did he say?

Scott told host Bret Baier that at one point, the U.S. was paying $5 million a day to contractors despite the fact that wall construction had been canceled.

‘Many of those projects today are just still on hold, so we’re paying contractors. For a while, it was almost $5 million a day between [Department of Defense] and [Department of Homeland Security] to not build the border wall,’ he said.

What could possibly go wrong?

U.S. and international officials are preparing to airlift U.S. cash into Afghanistan for humanitarian assistance while ‘denying assets’ for the Taliban government and its leaders, according to Reuters.

Emergency funding for Afghanistan, aimed at preventing a humanitarian crisis amid food shortages and political upheaval, would see U.S. cash flown into Kabul for distribution through banks, Reuters reported. Officials reportedly plan to send $200 in direct cash to individual Afghans without involving the Taliban.

Oh, I’m sure the Taliban will go along with that!  They just looooove the Great Satan and everything good we do.  I’m sure our energy industry will go along with this too:


Desperate, yes.  Incredibly stupid?  Certainly.  And speaking of incredibly stupid, we have Alejandro Mayorkas, whose photo illustrates dictionary definitions of “deer in the headlights.”

Mayorkas’ “profoundly troubled” face, which is the same as his “deer-in-the-headlights face

Late Friday evening Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced contracts to construct border wall barriers in the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo Sectors, where the illegal immigration crisis is raging, will be canceled.

Of course.  You wouldn’t want to cancel contracts where no one is trying to cross the border.  That’s just what they’re expecting!

Too stupid to survive.
