Notice he’s not calling it a vaccine anymore, so he’s dishonest by admission about the “shot” not preventing the disease or preventing its transmission.

It pains us when the vaccine isn’t a vaccine, doesn’t prevent disease or transmission and actually kills people.

Oh, they’ll stretch into the history of infamy alright. When a reporter dared ask about the origins of the virus, KJP angrily shut them up. Can’t have pertinent questions, can we?  Shut up and obey, peasants.  And on the Covid amnesty front:

Except the one guy who really ought to be begging forgiveness isn’t.  Wait a minute: didn’t he say the Covid pandemic was over?

Three years after President Donald Trump declared a COVID-19 emergency, Presidentish Joe Biden threatens to veto a Senate effort to finally end it.

People really think it’s possible for Biden to remember what he said a minute ago? Like this:

President Biden was once again spotted using a detailed “cheat sheet” — this time at the G20 summit in Bali — instructing him where to sit, when to deliver remarks and when to pose for photos.

The 79-year-old commander-in-chief was attending an event on the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment on Tuesday when photographers snapped a picture of him leafing through pages of notes.

The typed-up memo gave Biden step-by-step instructions on what to do during the meeting and referred to the president as “YOU” in bold red letters.

‘YOU, [Indonesian] President Widodo, and [Japanese] Prime Minister Kishida will take a photo directly before the event starts,’ one bullet point read.

Additional instructions said, ‘YOU will sit at the center’ and ‘YOU will deliver opening remarks (5 minutes).’

I wonder if he needs a note for eating ice cream or using the bathroom?

When pardoning a turkey:

THE PRESIDENT: How many turkeys have you got down there — are you raising?

PARKER: Circle S Ranch grows about nine and half million turkeys a year.

THE PRESIDENT: God love you. Nine and a half million turkeys. I tell you what. That’s like some of the countries I’ve been to. (Laughter.) And the — anyway.

I don’t suspect people were laughing because they thought him funny.

The Stupid Party is threatening to expose Biden family crimes:

Because everything is a clown car now, Team Biden Spokesditz Karine Jean-Pierre gave a full-throated world salad defense of the ‘Big Guy’ when questioned about it, which Robert covered for us:

Jean-Pierre began haltingly (she ended haltingly, too, and spoke haltingly in the middle; she is the most outstandingly inarticulate press secretary the nation as ever had): ‘So, look, uh, you know, um, there’s — there’s some — a little bit of, uh, interesting, uh, you know, kind of, on-brand, uh, thinking here, because, um, you know, congressional Republicans, uh, ran, uh, saying that they were going to fight inflation. Uh, they said they were gonna make that a priority. They were very clear about that these past, uh, several months, and instead, what they’re doing is they’re focusing, uh — you know, they’re focusing — they’re making their top, top priority — they get the majority, and their top priority is actually not focusing on the American families but focusing on the President’s family.’

I’m sure that reassured the nation. Oh, this is good:

President Joe Biden warned Americans on Friday to expect setbacks in his ongoing attempts to fix the economy.

‘It’s going to take time to get inflation back to normal levels as we keep our job market strong, so we could see setbacks along the way,” he said at the White House, promising to stay “laser-focused’ on the economy.

He also claimed that inflation at the grocery store was ‘down slightly,’ even though the cost of food at home is up 12.4 percent from the previous year.

Translation: the mid terms are over, you bought our bullshit, the economy is going straight to hell, and I’m sending it there, suckers. Next, CBS will confirm Washington crossed the Delaware:

Of course, because who is more deserving of taxpayer dollars than mentally ill snowflakes?

The city of San Francisco is offering a monthly stimulus program exclusively for transgender residents.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that the city would begin accepting applications for the Guaranteed Income for Trans People (GIFT) program Wednesday. The program is exclusive to transgender residents of the city, and led by The Transgender District, a neighborhood of the city for transgender people; it will give 55 transgender residents $1,200 a month for up to 18 months. The move is allegedly part of an effort to advance equity for transgender people.

I think they did it just so they could congratulate themselves on what they think is a cool acronym. This pretty much sums up 2022:

This guy has an odd definition of “secure:”

I guess this is what “secure” looks like now:

How could one possibly make DC worse? Like this:

In addition to eliminating most mandatory minimum sentences, the bill will also allow jury trials in almost all misdemeanor cases, according to the Washington Post. The bill now goes to Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), who, along with D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee, have voiced opposition to some of the provisions.

An amendment to increase penalties for those caught carrying an unlicensed firearm was rejected by the city council.

In other words: more than you can count:

FBI Director Christopher Wray said he had to ‘be very careful’ about answering questions about whether the bureau had informants dressed as Trump supporters in the crowd at the Capitol on January sixth.

‘Again, I have to be very careful …,’ Wray replied before getting cut off.

‘It should be a no!’ a perplexed Higgins shot back. ‘Can you not tell the American people ‘no, we did not have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters positioned inside the Capitol on January 6’?’

‘You should not read anything into my decision not to share information on confidential human sources,’ Wray concluded. 

How about reading something into having innumerable informants, yet doing nothing to prepare for any problems? But what about Trump? He kept all kinds of secret information at Mar-a-Lago! Nuclear Secrets! Treason!  Insurrection! A third, maybe a fourth impeachment! Russia! Russia! Russia! What’s that? Oh…

As usual, the administration’s scrivener is the Washington Post, which quotes ‘people familiar with the matter’ and ‘people who spoke on the condition of anonymity.’ It turns out that there was nothing of significance in those boxes after all:

‘Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.’

Imagine that! Holding on to mementos! I’m sure no prior president has done that.

‘That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.’

Retractions and apologies as soon as flying pigs are seen in a frozen Hell. How do you do the math on this:

Human behaviour is a neglected factor in climate science

In the light of the empirical evidence for the role of human behaviour in climatic changes, it is curious that the ‘human factor’ has not always received much attention in key research areas, such as climate modelling. For a long time, climate models to predict global warming and emissions did not account for it. This oversight meant that predictions made by these models have differed greatly in their projected rise in temperatures8,9.

Human behaviour is complex and multidimensional, making it difficult — but crucial — to account for it in climate models. In a Review, Brian Beckage and colleagues thus look at existing social climate models and make recommendations for how these models can better embed human behaviour in their forecasting.

The psychology of climate change

The complexity of humans is also reflected in their psychology. Despite an overwhelming scientific consensus on anthropogenic climate change, research suggests that many people underestimate the effects of it, are sceptical of it or deny its existence altogether. In a Review, Matthew Hornsey and Stephan Lewandowsky look at the psychological origins of such beliefs, as well as the roles of think tanks and political affiliation.

So let me see if I have this: climate modeling fails because too few psychologists are involved? How about that? A true psychic:

Either that or Mom knew her son very well. Somehow, I don’t think he’s going to be showing up for this gig:
