It’s Christmas!  It’s that happiest time of the year, a time for giving and kindness, so our Temporary President sends us a message of good cheer: You’re going to get serious illness and DIE!!!!

And what joyous tidings does the embodiment of science bring?

Dr. Anthony Fauci says families should ‘ask,’ and ‘maybe require’ that guests be vaccinated if they come over for holiday celebrations.

‘When you get vaccinated, and you have a vaccinated group, and you are in an indoor setting, you can enjoy, as we have traditionally over the years, dinners and gatherings within the home with people who are vaccinated,’ Fauci told the Washington Post Wednesday.

‘And that’s the reason why people should, if they invite people over their home, essentially ask and maybe require that people show evidence that they are vaccinated or give their honest and good faith word that they have been vaccinated,’ he continued.

Of course!  What says “holiday” more than having the police drag Aunt Mary off to jail in handcuffs for failing to have her vax card?  Maybe this?

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on ABC’s ‘This Week’ that if yearly boosters for the COVID vaccine became necessary, then we would ‘just have to deal with it.’

“We” would be delighted to tell Fauci where he can put his “just have to deal with it.”  I’m sure you know by now, gentle readers, the Salvation Army stepped in it with both feet:


The Salvation Army is one of the few national charities that Americans trust.  Or, maybe, as the Salvation Army jumps with both feet onto the racist, anti-American Critical Race bandwagon, that should be past tense: the Salvation Army is one of the few national charities that Americans ‘once trusted.’

Isn’t it nice to be so righteous you can accuse your donors of being horrible racists and expect they’ll keep on willingly giving?  Or not:

Get woke, go broke.  Just in case you think they might have actually learned something:

The Salvation Army is hosting a two-day racial justice forum in Illinois in an effort to “help alleviate the pain of suffering humanity within our communities and institutions” after the organization sparked controversy last month with a racism guide that it has since retracted.

The Young Adult Racial Justice Forum, hosted by the Salvation Army Metropolitan Division, will take place in Hoffman Estates near Chicago on Jan. 8-Jan. 9 and will feature theologian and activist Esau McCaulley as a guest speaker.

‘We believe racial justice is an urgent issue close to the heart of God,’ the event description states, ‘and therefore are eager to create opportunities to disciple our soldiers and stakeholders in ways that will encourage deeper holiness and to provide those in our ranks with the resources to help alleviate the pain of suffering humanity within our communities and institutions.’

Hmmm.  So salvation only for the woke?  That ought to win souls for God.  And speaking of never learning:

Well sure.  When you have family members slaughtered by a racist maniac and children in the hospital fighting for their lives, what more could you ask for than a couple of politician’s spouses hectoring you about getting shots?  And in continuing news from Biden/Woke world:

There is nothing worse than SUV violence.  See:

Except maybe this:

For the younger among you, the guy whose hand Biden is holding is former Senator Robert Byrd, a noted high-ranking KKK leader.  This never gets old:

During President Joe Biden’s keynote speech at South Carolina State University’s commencement ceremony on Friday, the president slipped up, calling Vice President Kamala Harris ‘President Harris.’

Neither does this:

It’s Weekend at Biden’s, but fear not — Dementia Joe is always here to protect you from the latest panic-porn sequel, the variant known as … well, Joe can’t remember its name either, but he does know how you can protect yourself against the dreaded ‘mild symptoms.’

‘A fully vaccinated booster person is the most protected against COVID.’

And where, pray tell, will we become booster persons?

‘Get the booster shots at CVC.’ OK, probably more Americans had considered going to CVS, but whatever you say, Mr. President. Because it is important, isn’t it?

‘Vaccilating the world is not just a moral tool.’

But what about all the would-be booster persons out there who’d prefer not to get vaccilated?

‘We’re we we we have promising new arrival pills excuse me anti-viral pills.’

Right.  But what about this?

I’ve seen more of Dr. Fauci than my wife. We kid each other but they look who’s president. Fauci. But all kidding aside, I sincerely mean it.

Mean what?  He’s seen more of Fauci or Fauci’s president?  Take the link where you’ll find a great many more bizarre pronouncements.  And speaking of priorities:


The Colorado Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) voted on Friday to drop the term ‘sex offender’ because the word has had a ‘negative impact’ on sex offenders.

That’s right, the sex offenders do not like being called sex offenders. So stop it — the SOMB already has.

The SOMB board voted 10-6 to change the term to ‘adults who commit sexual offenses’ in its Standards and Guidelines book.

Oh yeah; that’s muuuuch better, because nothing is more important than not offending sex offenders.  If they’re upset, they might go out and sexually offend again. And speaking of offensive, particularly at Christmas:

Does the Pope know about this?  Just what men need for Christmas:

Universities across America are funding the inclusion of tampons and menstrual products in men’s restrooms.

At Davenport University, a private university in Michigan, the products were supplied by the Panther Resource Closet, a campus center designed to provide food, hygiene products, and clothes to students in need.

In need of what, exactly?  Sanity?  Reality?

Yeah, I can just hear first graders asking: “why are you so queer?”  I can also hear parents asking: “what the hell is someone like this doing in a classroom?!”

I believe you.

Yup.  And speaking of priorities:

I’m sure you’ve heard elementary aged kids are being forced to eat their lunch outside, sitting on the frozen pavement, when it’s—you know—winter:

Grinch, thy name is Psaki.

Layers and layers of editors and fact checkers.  And in Climate Change news:

It appears ‘polar bears are being forced to change their eating habits’ thanks to global warming, alarmists at Euronews announced Sunday.

The article cites video footage of a single polar bear chasing a reindeer into the water and killing it in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago, warning that the incident represents ‘another stark indication of climate change.’

Well sure.  Polar bears would never do anything like that if it weren’t for climate change.  They usually eat polar nuts and polar berries and graze on polar grass and stuff like that, right?  They’re vegetarians, right?  Right?

Wow!  I guess climate change really is making everything worse!

Yes, they really do think we’re stupid.  This graph illustrates a 2 cent per gallon price decrease over 6 days.  That’s right gentle readers: 2 cents over six days.  I’ve seen gas fluctuate as much as 50 cents in a single day.  Of course, they’re tacitly admitting Joe Biden, who we should thank, actually has control over gas prices, and they’re stupid enough to think we’re stupid enough not to remember how much the price of gas has increased in the first year of the Harris/Biden/Whoever Administration, Joe Biden, Temporary President.  Sheeeesh.

No.  Next question?  And speaking of high gas prices:

Jen Psaki let the cat out of the bag a couple of weeks ago, when she explained the upside of high gas prices (which so very many people had somehow overlooked): ‘Look, our view is that the rise in gas prices over the long term makes an even stronger case for doubling down on our investment and our focus on clean energy options, so we are not relying on the fluctuations and OPEC and their willingness to put more supply and meet the demand in the market.’ On Tuesday, Old Joe Biden doubled down on the idea that skyrocketing gas prices are all part of a Leftist social engineering project when he claimed that those who bought electric cars are saving money these days instead of paying exorbitant prices at the pump.

The ostensible president read off his teleprompter: ‘I also want to briefly address one myth about inflated gas prices: They are not due to environmental measures.’ Of course, Joe! How could anyone have possibly gotten the crazy idea that killing the Keystone Pipeline and destroying America’s energy independence could have anything, anything whatsoever, to do with rising gas prices? ‘My effort to combat climate change is not raising the price of gas or increasing its availability.’ He meant ‘decreasing,’ but you knew that. And since this is Joe Biden, you also knew that he was going to tell you how a sow’s ear is really a silk purse, and a disaster is actually manna raining from heaven: ‘It — what it is doing: It’s increasing the availability of jobs. Jobs building electric cars, like the one I drove at the GM Detroit — at the GM factory in Detroit last week.’

That would be a GM Hummer electric pickup that will retail at a mere $113 thousand dollars.

Biden went even farther, pointing out that if you had been one of the environmentally-conscious folks who bought an electric car, you wouldn’t be watching more and more of your income flying away at the gas pump: ‘For the hundreds of thousands of folks who bought one of those electric cars, they’re going to save $800 to $1,000 in fuel costs this year.’ Not only are they weathering a bread shortage by eating cake, but they’re also helping all of us out: ‘And we’re going to put those savings within reach of more Americans and create jobs installing solar panels, batteries, electric heat pumps — jobs making those clean power-generating devices.’ This is going to result in a new dawning of prosperity: ‘And by the way, deploying these technologies for each home where they’re installed is going to save folks an additional hundreds of dollars in energy costs every year.’

Right.  Let’s see: a reasonably priced conventional pickup would cost about $40 thousand, so to make up the difference, I would only have to drive a Hummer for 73 years or so to break even on fuel prices.  Thanks, Joe!  We know we can trust you!

Er, maybe not.  But surely we can trust Democrat-run cities?

Democratic-run cities that have implemented bail reform have seen a rise in criminal activity amid the release of criminals with multiple offenses who went on to commit additional crimes following their releases.


Golly!  Who could have seen that one coming?  Certainly not Democrat-run cities.  Maybe we ought to give Joe one more chance?

Today (P)resident Biden made the extraordinary claim that during the Six Day War, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir invited him over to be the liaison between Israel and Egypt about the Suez ‘and so forth.’

The Six Day War was in 1967. In 1967, Biden was in his second year of law school at Syracuse University (where he finished 76th in his class of 85, recall, after having been caught plagiarizing). It is doubtful Golda Meir invited a second-year law student to mediate the crisis.

Perhaps Biden has in mind the 1973 Yom Kippur War, when Meir was still prime minister. This seems more than doubtful, though. Biden was elected in 1972, at the age of 29, turning 30 before he took office. He had only been a senator for nine months when the war broke out. How likely is it that Meir, in the midst of a life-or-death struggle for survival, said: ‘Yeah—let’s invite a 30-year old Senator we’ve never heard of to be the liaison with Egypt. Who needs Kissinger when we can get Biden!’

Oh.  Well, to be fair, Joe probably believes it.  And now, gentle readers, we have Safari Rules:

An inevitable evolution now takes place as rampant crime, violence and anarchy take over the municipal regions controlled by leftists and Democrats.  What is described, in the video excerpt from ABC news in Maryland, is what we have described as the ‘Safari Rules.’

As stunning as it may seem at first glance, the media are informing the public on how to behave when entering any area were Democrats are in charge of civil society.  It is important not to accept this new normal; instead think about this broadcast in the larger picture of what it represents.  The media no longer question if you will be attacked; the media are now advising us on how to mitigate our pending attack.  The attack itself is a foregone conclusion.

Hey, it’s just the price you pay for living in such sophisticated, cultured places!  And now another Biden public service announcement:

‘We’re making progress. We’re going to keep at it to ensure the American people are paying their fair share for gas, not being gouged for gas,’ he said [emphasis added].

Somehow, I don’t think Joe thinks there is any upward limit to what our “fair share” is.  This week Senator Elizabeth Warren blamed higher food prices on “big grocery.”  The average profit margin in that business is 2%.  And Jen Psaki got in on blaming everybody but the Bidenites policies:

“Meat conglomerates.”  Right.

Good point.

Do they really think kids text about this, or are they sufficiently stupid to think this will encourage kids to text about this?

Gee, when I played cops and robbers, losing evidence was kind of a big deal.  Of course, that was a long, long time ago, and I didn’t work for the FBI…

Well, what else does one think of around the Thanksgiving table?

Nah, Dan.  There’s no limit to Klain’s arrogance and stupidity.  More to come.

That’s not fair.  The media have had their irony surgically removed.  And let’s turn to Peggy Noonan, a former writer and sane person, who offers advice for Kamala Harris:

Noonan now offers Harris her best advice, culminating in this recommendation:

‘She could lend what skills she has to the public presentation of the administration’s stands. Mr. Biden isn’t strong there; he’s uneven in his attempts to explain and advance policy thinking.

To do this Ms. Harris would have to decide to become serious—to inform and immerse herself, meet with party thinkers, study her briefing books. Her current strategy, to the extent it exists, appears to rely on her sense of her own personal charisma—delighted laughter, attempts to connect personally, to convey zest.

She should speak instead with sincerity and depth. She shouldn’t confuse Happy Warrior with Hungry Operative.

Ms. Harris has never seemed especially earnest. This would be a good time for earnestness.’

In other words, Kamala needs a complete personality and competence transplant. And finally, from the party of SCIENCE!

Let’s see: It currently takes a cargo ship about a week on a direct route to cross the Atlantic at 20 knots.  In the 1700s, with sail power, it took from seven to 12 weeks, because the wind doesn’t always blow, and when it does, it doesn’t blow in a consistent direction or with a consistent velocity.  Also, ships back then were much smaller and lighter than today’s cargo ships.  Then there are ocean currents, and other weather and ocean stuff to worry about.  Oh, and if they don’t have engines and/or generators, how are crews going to see at night, cook their meals, keep food refrigerated, etc.?  So yeah, that’s a great idea.  It will certainly take care of our supply chain problems, won’t it?  Decarbonize=desurvivalize.

Too stupid to survive.
