OK, OK, I know the Air Force is often the butt of jokes from the other armed services about a lack of a certain martial fortitude.  This isn’t helping.  Nor is this:

When aliens land and say “take me to your leader,” will the Space Force demand to know their pronouns?  Oh. My. God:

The Marines?!  The Marines have gone LBGTQWERTY++–?!  That’s going to strike fear into the hearts of Islamists and Communists.  Presidents, veterans, those who died in the service of America, mothers, fathers, only get a day.  LBGTQWERTY++– mentally ill narcissists get a whole month?!  What’s that about?  Then there’s this Marxist idiot:

He’s turning Los Angeles into a third world war zone, and he can’t even get Veteran’s Day right?  Guess he was in the armed services way too early.

Oh yeah, Islamist maniacs are all about LBGTQWERTY++–.  But that’s our State Department: winning hearts and minds, bashing America, betraying our allies, arming the Taliban…  Wait a minute…I thought owning property was one of the foundations of our republic.  I guess not:

A Boston University assistant professor said that property is racist and excused the riots that followed the death of George Floyd, according to a video posted by the school on Twitter Wednesday.

‘If we’re going to talk about George Floyd and really understand, then we need to understand community reactions,’ Saida Grundy, who works in BU’s Department of Sociology & Program in African American Studies, said. According to the professor’s LinkedIn, she also works at Ibram X. Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research

‘I think it’s really important for people who see reactions of communities to not judge and to not make assumptions about what is good and not good reactions and not actually re-victimize communities by saying there’s an acceptable and a not acceptable way to react,’ the assistant professor continued. ‘Listen to them, and then we can say what these communities need.’

No, we’re not going to talk about George Floyd, who was a violent felon and drug addict, who overdosed in the process of trying to pass counterfeit money.  No one should think kindly of him or anyone like him.  As a matter of fact, no one should think of him at all.  And we don’t give a rat’s ass about why people are looting and burning down cities, and if judges won’t judge them, we can at least think them stupid, violent thugs.  Oh, and you’re a racist twit, professor.  And speaking of racist twits:

Former President Barack Obama raised eyebrows on Wednesday for attempting to link this week’s mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, to the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder.

After eight years of Obama—everything is all about him–America has atoned for everything necessary for the next several centuries.  Except this:

To celebrate her 50th birthday on May 29, [Laverne Cox] the Emmy-award winning actor and LGBTQ+ activist is honored with a Tribute Collection Barbie. Her doll is dressed in a red ball gown, a silver bodysuit and comes with accessories like high-heeled boots and silver earrings.

Yes, “she’s” a guy, and he’s bigger than everyone else on the set.  I know about Ken, but what gets paired with a Laverne doll?

And now we discover noted traitor, former Secretary of State, and current hair-on-fire climate lunatic John Kerry was conducting secret, unauthorized, diplomacy:

This is precisely why we sent this FOIA request: to uncover actions of then-former U.S. diplomats – those who worked for the Obama-Biden Administration but who then went to work undermining President Trump and the core policies he campaigned on and succeeded. [Former Secretary of State] Kerry himself admitted his part in this scheme. And here we obtained a memo showing just that: an off-the-record meeting between Zarif and ‘former’ U.S. diplomats right in the middle of the Trump Administration and during the time President Trump was working through the aftermath of withdrawing the United States from the farce known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – the Iran nuclear deal.

Somebody—lots of somebodies—need to go to prison.

They don’t need to go to prison for this, but maybe they need to spend a month in the Mojave Desert–in August, just to get some sense of what cooking human flesh is all about?

I know about food shortages, but no movie popcorn?!  How bad has LBGTQWERTY++– gotten?  This bad:

That was a quote from Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  The ACLU pronouned her every reference to women.  Didn’t they used to have something to do with civil rights?

As I’m sure you recall, gentle readers, we dodged a bullet when the anti-liberty/gun cracktivist David Chipman wasn’t confirmed to head the ATF, not that the current nominee is markedly better:

‘I vow, if I’m given the privilege of serving as director, to partner with others to advance the cause of public safety, and to approach that task—especially here and now—with an open heart, with open ears, and with an open mind,’ [Steven] Dettelbach concluded his opening remarks.

That’s sounds promising, except Dettelbach can’t define “assault weapon.  I doubt he’d do any better with “woman”:

Citing a 2018 campaign Dettelbach mounted to become attorney general of Ohio, [Senator Tom] Cotton noted ‘you called for a ban on ‘assault weapons.’ What is an ‘assault weapon,’ could you define it for me?’

‘Senator, when I was a candidate for office I did talk about restrictions on assault weapons, I did not define the term and I haven’t gone through the process of defining that term,’ Dettelbach admitted. [skip]

‘So you’re running for public office and you called for a ban on assault weapons but you don’t have a definition for assault weapons?’ Cotton asked.

Good question.  If you’re trying to ban something, you actually do have to clearly define what it is, otherwise, how could anyone obey that law?

‘Senator, it would only be for a legislative body—whether it was the Ohio legislature or the Congress—it would only be for a legislative body to do that work, and I acknowledge that that would be a difficult task to define assault weapons because, on the one hand, you don’t want it to be so narrow that it doesn’t offer the protections that are intended, and on the other hand you don’t want it to be so broad that it infringes unnecessarily on the rights of citizens,’ Dettelbach responded. [skip]

“Why is it so hard to define assault weapons?” Cotton asked. [skip]

Perhaps because there’s no such thing?

Pushing further, Cotton argued that while various types of firearms exist—ranging from pistols to shotguns to rifles—there is no category clearly defined as an ‘assault weapon.’

‘Can you go into a federally-licensed firearm dealer and find a category of weapons on the wall labeled as ‘assault weapons?’ Cotton asked.

‘I don’t believe that’s a category of weapons that’s labeled on the wall of retailers—it’s not necessarily what retailers call it that would affect the decision of a legislative body but, no, in answer to your question,’ Dettelbach responded.

So it doesn’t exist, but Dettelbach wants to ban it anyway.  Your tax dollars at work.   Here’s a special kind of stupid:

Right.  Gun owners are maniacs just waiting to murder everyone, and she wants people to protest the NRA with guns.  Talk about irony challenged.  We expect stupid from NYC, but this…

Uh, don’t we want people to get off drugs, and isn’t being ashamed about destroying your life and the lives of everyone you know a good thing?  Apparently not in NYC; now it’s empowering.

He’s not getting better.

 And managers—don’t forget them:

San Francisco Giants manager Gabe Kapler told reporters prior to his team’s Friday night game against the Cincinnati Reds that he will not be taking the field for the national anthem and will not be doing so until he feels better about the direction of the country in the wake of the Uvalde school shooting that occurred earlier this week.

Yeah, everything is about Barack Obama, and sports team managers too.  Hey, go easy on the guy.  He was only told last year, and lots of times since:

President Joe Biden acknowledged Wednesday he did not know about the infant formula shortage soon enough.

‘I don’t think anyone anticipated the impact of the shutdown of one facility,’ Biden said to reporters when asked why he did not act sooner to help end shortages.

Of course not, particularly since it’s one of the very few factories, and the one making most of the government financed formula for the entire nation.

Biden spoke to a group of baby formula producers during a live video event on his imitation White House set across the street from the actual White House in an attempt to demonstrate his commitment to solving the problem.

But Biden said he did not realize the problem until early April, even though formula-producing executives had sent messages to realtors warning of potential shortages.

‘They did, but I didn’t,’ he said shortly, referring to the CEOs.

Here’s a good question:

He forget to ask even if it was brought to Biden’s attention, would he understand the question?  But then again, neither would his press secretary, who is historically black, gay and an immigrant:

Temporary President Biden recently regaled Naval Academy graduates with a story of how he was offered an appointment to the Academy, but turned it down in favor of the University of Delaware.  That was 1965, the year he graduated from Delaware.  One doesn’t get an Academy appointment if one is graduating from college.  To be fair, Joe may actually believe he was offered an appointment.  And that wasn’t all:

The speech hit the usual nonsensical far-Left talking points. We heard, for instance, that COVID-19 had accelerated climate change: ‘Over the past few years, we’ve seen how interconnected the world is. The deadly pandemic has impacted not just our own schooling, but almost every aspect of our lives — impacts of disruptions to the global supply chain causing significant inflation; accelerating the climate crisis that’s leading to rising seas and more severe weather patterns arou- — around the globe.’

Biden also asserted that ‘before I departed Asia — before I left for Asia, I should say, I got a phone call from the Prime Minister of Sweden and the President of Finland — could they come and see me in the Oval. They came to ask me whether I would support them joining NATO.  The actions taken by Putin were an attempt to — to use my phrase — to ‘Findalize’ all of Europe — make it all neutral. Instead, he ‘NATOized’ all of Europe.’

I hate it when I get Findalized.  As usual, the press secretary was on top of things:

The stupid is thinking this a good idea in the first place.

The library at the Ramstein US Air Force base in Germany cancelled Drag Story Hour for kids after reporting from The Post Millennial. The base, on which 54,000 American service members are stationed, accompanied by more than 5,400 US civilian employees, had held a Drag Story Hour in 2021, and was slated to hold one again.

however, after reporting brought the plans to light, the 86th Airlift Wing told The Post Millennial that the plans were scrapped. ‘An advertisement was posted to the base library social media page before the event had completed Ramstein’s established processes for special observance coordination and approval,’ the public affairs spokesperson revealed.

Suuuure it did.  As always, California is on the cutting edge:

Two days after the Uvalde massacre at Robb Elementary School, the California state senate voted to end mandatory reporting of students who threaten to do what the Uvalde killer did.

Before the California law was passed, existing law stated that whenever a school official is ‘attacked, assaulted, or physically threatened by any pupil,’ staff was ‘required to promptly report the incident to specified law enforcement authorities.’ The new bill repealed this requirement.

The police, who we’re busy defunding, are too busy for such trivia.

If you’re raped in Seattle, tough cookies sweetie!  

Seattle police’s sexual assault and child abuse unit staff has been so depleted that it stopped assigning to detectives this year new cases with adult victims, according to an internal memo sent to interim police Chief Adrian Diaz in April.

The unit’s sergeant put her staffing crisis in stark terms.

‘The community expects our agency to respond to reports of sexual violence,’ Sgt. Pamela St. John wrote, ‘and at current staffing levels that objective is unattainable.’

In the memo, St. John went on to say that she was not ‘able to assign adult sexual assault cases’ that came into her unit. Cases involving children and adult cases that had a suspect in custody — a fraction of adult sexual assaults reported to police — were being prioritized. The unit just had too few detectives.

I’m sure being unable to define what a woman is had some effect.  Even better, it’s now illegal, with a very few exceptions, for the police in Washington state to pursue criminals.  Crooks, often in stolen cars, simply refuse to stop, and the police can’t chase them.  This is precious:  

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen finally admitted that she was ‘wrong’ last year when she initially dismissed rampant inflation across the US as a ‘transitory’ problem that would soon resolve itself.

Both Yellen and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell repeated on several occasions last year that rising inflation was “transitory” in nature and that prices would return to normal as pandemic-related supply chain bottlenecks cleared — a prediction that has turned out to be woefully off the mark.

‘I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take,’ Yellen said during an appearance on CNN late Tuesday. ‘As I mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices and supply bottlenecks that have affected our economy badly that I, at the time, didn’t fully understand, but we recognize that now.’

Thanks, Secretary Obvious.  I’m so glad you’re in charge.  Let’s review:

Let’s see now, could the upcoming midterms, and the continuous crashing of the economy have anything to do with Yellen suddenly wising up?

Too stupid to survive.
