How stupid and utterly insane is our federal government?  This stupid and utterly insane:  

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) disclosed to a congressional office that illegal migrants flying without proper identification can use an arrest warrant as an alternate form of identification when presenting to airport security, according to a letter the Daily Caller News Foundation exclusively obtained.

Responding to Republican Texas Rep. Lance Gooden’s Dec. 15 inquiry about illegal migrants flying across the country, TSA Administrator David Pekoske explained that certain Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents may be considered acceptable forms of alternate identification for non-citizens, including a ‘Warrant for Arrest of Alien’ and a ‘Warrant of Removal/Deportation.’

‘TSA’s response confirms the Biden Administration is knowingly putting our national security at risk,’ Gooden told the DCNF. ‘Unknown and unvetted immigrants shouldn’t even be in the country, much less flying without proper identification.’

Because of course, but shouldn’t people breaking the law be arrested, particularly if they’re carrying around their own arrest warrants as a form of ID?  Asking for a friend…  How do we stop illegal immigration?  By attending inaugurations!

Vice President Kamala Harris and the left-wing media are promoting the idea that a trip to attend the inauguration of Honduras President-Elect Xiomara Castro is part of ‘efforts to deter migration.’

Uh…

Suuuure it will.  The time to do what we’ve been doing about illegal immigration is everyday, with the tools and things.

As I’m sure you know, gentle readers, the Supreme Court recently held oral arguments about Biden’s vax mandates. During those argument, the “wise Latina,” wasn’t so wise after all…

Uh-huh.  I’m sure it’s fake but accurate though.

Uh, because humans and viruses are organic and don’t spew sparks?

To be absolutely fair, that’s the 10th Amendment.  Maybe she hasn’t gotten that far yet?  That’s a lot of reading and modern folks can’t read English from the 1700s…

So she’s not only wise, but deaf too?

Justice Kagan is wise too, but not a Latina?

Breyer is wiser than the two of them, and better at math too!

Temporary President Biden also gave a speech to students at a Black university the other day.  He’s wiser then Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer combined!

In closing his speech, Biden told students at the historically black institutions that the vote on these bills was a defining moment, one that would mark whether leaders were on the side of the Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis. He added:

Don’t feel bad: nobody else was aware of it either, and Joe wasn’t two minutes later.

The struggle to protect voting rights has never been borne by one group alone. We saw Freedom Fiders of every race, leaders of every faith, marching arm in arm — and yes, Democrats and Republicans in Congress of the United States and in the presidency. I did not live the struggles of Douglass, Tubman, King, Lewis, Goodman, Chaney, Schwerner, countless others known and unknown. I did not walk in the shoes of generation of students who walked these grounds. But I walked other grounds, because i’m so damn old I was there as well. [Laughter] They think I’m kidding, man. It seems like yesterday, the first time I got arrested — anyway. [Laughter] But their struggles, here, they’re the ones that opened my eyes as a high school student in the late 50’s and early 60’s. They got me more engaged in the work of my life.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Joe really let go:

‘At consequential moments in history, they present a choice,’ said Biden in his speech. ‘Do you want to be the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?’

Other Swamp dwellers weren’t terribly impressed with Biden calling them racists, oddly not feeling unified, so Red Jen Psaki went to work:

White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Friday that President Biden didn’t intend to offend senators by likening them to George Wallace, Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis — but simply meant to compare their actions to those of the infamous white supremacists.

Oh, that’s much better.  Thanks!  Joe kind of forgot it was Democrats that were, and always have been, the party of slavery, racism, segregation and discrimination.  We also recently learned what the real problem is:

CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked [Dem flack Paul] Begala, ‘Do you think that’s fair criticism? Did President Biden put more effort into getting infrastructure passed, for example?’

‘Well, he [Biden] got infrastructure passed, and that’s a good thing because success can breed success,’ Begala replied. ‘He is putting the full force of the presidency behind it. I think the problem for the Democrats right now is not that they have bad leaders. They have bad followers, OK?’

‘Those of us who want to save voting rights — we need to get to work. I do think Biden is putting everything behind this, but he needs better followers. He needs all of us in the game as well,’ he concluded.

So get rid of all contemporary D/S/Cs and replace them with better ones?  That sounds doable.  But if that doesn’t work, DOCTOR Jill Biden is coming to the rescue:

First Lady Jill Biden has given an interview to mark the end of her first year in the White House, detailing the tough tasks demanded by her self-defined role of ‘healing’ the nation while at the same time giving hugs, love and understanding to those she can reach out to.

The community college teacher told the Associated Press she found herself taking on a role of universal caring that ‘I didn’t kind of expect, which was like a healing role, because we’ve faced so much as a nation.’

Wow.  She’s going to heal the nation!  Right after Joe unifies it, presumably.  And just in case that doesn’t work:

The White House is planning a new communications strategy, as President Joe Biden faces a total collapse of his approval ratings.

Citing ‘senior administration officials,’ NBC News reported Tuesday the White House is exploring new ways to communicate directly with the American people.

Advisers expressed the need for Biden to ‘talk to more people directly,’ instead of ‘one-dimensional’ speeches from the White House, the report revealed, citing ‘his greatest political strength’ as ‘empathy and an ability to connect with ordinary Americans.’

I know Joe connected with me when he boldy exclaimed: “TRUNALIMUNUMAPRZURE!”  I think, after his marathon press conference, Americans have had about as much connection with Joe as they’ll ever need.  Maybe if he learns to speak English?

Wait a minute.  Weren’t train robberies a thing in the 1800s?

No.  Next question?

The Wake County Democrats had to hastily take this down and apologize.  I can’t imagine why.

You’d think if the FBI wasn’t doing anything illegal, they’d want to tell us, right?  Weren’t they supposed to be the good guys?  When good guys essentially take the 5th, that’s not a good look.

Yeah!  Who do those parents think they are anyway?  The public or something?

Just like Nixon, she’s tanned, rested and ready.  Heavily drugged too—don’t forget that.

Want to understand why most of what Hollywood is producing these days is unwatchable, woke excrement?    Want to understand why they’re going broke and know it, but can’t help but go woke?  Go here.   It’s a case study in stupid.

How stupid is our federal government II?  This stupid:

NASA’s growing emphasis on Earth and climate science took sharper focus this week with the appointment of an Earth scientist, Katherine Calvin, to the agency’s chief scientist position.

Calvin also will serve as senior climate officer, a new title at the agency, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said in a press conference Tuesday.

‘This is really a big deal for us… We’ve chosen to elevate this senior climate adviser position to reflect new emphasis on climate change in the Biden administration,’ Nelson said.

Well, at least they’re consistent.  Under Barack Obama, NASA’s mission was to make Muslims feel good about the scientific contributions of their ancestors, so why not?

Guess what else is racist:

Lifted from the comments, a technological feat:

Traffic cameras in Chicago disproportionately ticket Black and Latino motorists.

Readers are invited to spot the word that’s doing the heavy lifting. It appears 10 times in the article quoted above, excluding variations.

The red-light and speed cameras are, we’re told, ‘distributed roughly evenly among the city’s black, Latino and white neighbourhoods.’ Despite which, ‘the ticketing rate for households in majority-Black ZIP codes’ is ‘more than three times that of households in majority-white areas.’ And so, explanations are searched out, including the width of a given road, the effect of passing vacant lots, and the geographical distribution of grocery stores. “Structural racism” is of course invoked, a phenomenon that apparently includes ticketing cyclists who choose to ride on the pavement, illegally.

Those presented as victims of injustice, of ‘racial inequity,’ include Mr Rodney Perry, whose photograph accompanies the piece, and who, in a single year, has received eight tickets for speeding and three for running red lights. The article appears not to have had room to include the views of those injured or bereaved by Chicago’s law-breaking motorists, despite an eye-widening spike in accidents, fatalities, and hit-and-run crashes. Nor, it seems, was there room to consider the possible effect of endless, widespread excuse-making for antisocial behaviour, and its role in making such behaviour more likely, not less.

See also the words disparatedisparity and disparities, which occur no fewer than 22 times.

Do you get it, gentle readers?  Traffic cameras are racist!  Why?  Because black people commit more than three times more traffic violations than white people.  I’m sure it’s a race-filtering, racist, white supremacist algorithm in the cameras, or they have some kind of filter that only sees black people.  Take the link to read the whole thing, if you’ve the stomach for it.

Fun with filibustering:  

The other day, Senator Ted Cruz tried to pass a measure to impose sanctions on the Russian’s Nordstream 2 pipeline.  D/S/Cs used the filibuster to defeat it and to help Russia.  You know, the filibuster that is a threat to democracy?  The one D/S/Cs swore would allow Republicans to utterly destroy America if they couldn’t eliminate it so they could federalize all elections so they could save democracy by ensuring only D/S/Cs could be elected forever after?  That filibuster?  As I’m sure you know by now, with the help of two sane D/S/C senators, and even Mitt Romney(!), the filibuster was retained, and the attempt to disregard the Constitution failed—for now.

Oh, and by the way, in 2020, D/S/Cs used the filibuster 327 times.  Guess they kind of liked it then.  Republicans used it once.

Well, this explains a lot about Romney, doesn’t it?

I always thought Utah was full of solid, sane people:

The Salt Lake City Tribune editorial board published an editorial on Saturday that called on the Utah governor to use the National Guard to prevent unvaccinated citizens from going anywhere.

In an editorial titled, ‘Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic, the Editorial Board writes’ the paper lays blame at elected officials for failing to mandate the vaccine for all citizens. The paper asserted that if Utah was a ‘civilized place,’ Republican Gov. Spencer Cox would implement a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for the state and have the National Guard enforce the mandate by not letting unvaccinated people go ‘anywhere.’

‘Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere,’ the editorial board wrote.

Oh.  They’re the media.  Right.  I don’t know…locking people in their homes at gunpoint until they starve sounds pretty Chinese to me.  Who’s working at The Salt Lake Tribune anyway?  Is this the “unity” Joe keeps promising?  I guess it’s just not Utah journalists:

A majority of Democrats would agree with the U.S. government taking more drastic coronavirus measures, such as confining unvaccinated Americans to their homes ‘at all times except for emergencies,’ a Rasmussen Reports survey revealed.

Oh sure, that’s gotta be constitutional.

Would you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose a proposal to limit the spread of the coronavirus by having federal or state governments require that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine?’ the survey asked.

While 61 percent, overall, reject that scenario, the survey found 59 percent of Democrats favor the government requiring unvaccinated individuals to stay at home ‘at all times’ with exceptions only for emergencies. Of those, 35 percent of Democrats ‘strongly’ favor that proposal. Another 55 percent of Democrats said they favor the government fining unvaccinated Americans, while 45 percent said they would favor a proposal to limit the spread of the coronavirus ‘by having federal or state governments require that citizens temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.’

Oh great.  Covid concentration camps.  I never thought I’d say this, but do we want to be as crazy as Australia?  I can just see the sign over the gates: “vaccination makes free.”  I’m beginning to think 59% of D/S/Cs aren’t really all that into the whole “America/freedom” thing.

But all the best people tell me inflation is really a good thing!  And in the “lost all touch with reality” department for this edition of TSTS:

Brand-new New York City Mayor Eric Adams says there’s an unfair ‘perception of fear’ about subway crime, just one day after another random murder on the city’s ‘safe’ subway system.

That’s crazy—anyone fearing for their safety in New York City, that is.  Hey, wasn’t Adams the law and order candidate for mayor?

Too stupid to survive.
