“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the… you know… you know the thing.” – Joseph R. Biden, Democrat candidate for the presidency of the United States.
When it comes to Joe Biden, only he can effortlessly segue into some inane, creepy, and blatantly weird shit at the drop of a hat.
Now I understand that in the course of human history, CPR is a relatively new thing, but mouth-to-nostril? That’s a new one on me.
As noted by the good folks over at Breitbart.com, Creepy Joe was virtually interviewed by the uber-liberal SEIU (Service Employees International Union), when this yutz actually stated;
“I had a nurse– nurses at Walter Reed hospital who would bend down and whisper in my ear, go home and get me pillows. They would … actually breathe in my nostrils to make me move, to get me moving.”
Biden said such a thing wouldn’t be allowed “during COVID time,” but it’s not clear when such a practice would ever be allowed in a hospital setting.
Tom Elliott of Grabien News surmised Biden was referring to his stay at Walter Reed, when he had surgery to deal with a brain aneurysm.

When you lay with dogs, don’t be surprised when you catch fleas…
Remember when New York City’s chief of police (official title: Chief of Department) Terence Monahan posed for the cameras and joined the mob in ‘taking a knee”, as seen in the video below?
Well, Terry may have thought he was in tight with the thugs, but now it seems that these jackals have turned on the same guy that knelt with them.
As it turn out, there was (yet again) another “peaceful protest”, this time on New York’s famed Brooklyn Bridge.
For whatever bizarre reason, Chief Monahan thought it was a good idea to make a showing. Even more bizarre, Monahan thought it was a good idea to only have a handful of officers escort him into the belly of the beast.
In retrospect, that wasn’t too bright of an idea. At least two other officers injured and an undetermined number of stitches later, and at least 10 arrested…
Monahan received “non-life threatening injuries” during the scuffle and was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
A police source said Monahan’s hand was injured and required stitches after protesters attacked NYPD officers with a chain during the morning rally. At least two other officers were also injured.
The attack on Monahan came just one day after he [Monahan] said in an interview that there’s “a feeling on the street that the police are handcuffed,” and “are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement.”
“[T]here’s a lot of different factors into it. We’ve mentioned bail reform and COVID releases, but just as importantly, if not more importantly, is the animosity towards the police that was generated after the Floyd protests,” he told New York’s 1010 WINS.
“The new law that was passed by the city council has cops hesitant. They are fearful that they may be arrested if they take some proactive-type enforcement. The disbanding of anti-Crime, obviously, has a huge effect. Those are our best cops out on the street, grabbing guns. So, there’s a feeling that it’s safe to carry a gun on the street.”
Wednesday attack comes in the wake of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) confirming that he will slash $1 billion from the budget of NYPD, despite a surge in shootings in the wake of protests and violent unrest.
Three officers violently attacked by protesters crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. The officers sustained serious injuries.
Ghislaine Maxwell kept a cellphone wrapped in foil to try to shield her location while hiding out on a sprawling New Hampshire estate, prosecutors revealed Monday.
FBI agents discovered the amateurish attempt at counter-surveillance during a security sweep of the secluded mansion where Maxwell was busted earlier this month, according to papers filed in Manhattan federal court.
While searching the place, the feds “noticed a cell phone wrapped in tin foil on top of a desk, a seemingly misguided effort to evade detection,” prosecutors wrote.
The crude cloaking effort was clearly aimed at law enforcement and not “the press or the public, which of course would have no ability to trace her phone or intercept her communications,” prosecutors wrote.
Would it be out of bounds of me to publicly wonder out-loud if we should happen to find her suicided while in custody?
If revisionists want to erase history, then go all the way…
Everyone from Antifa to Fox News contributor Gen. Jack Keane (US Army, retired) have called for the removal of memorials to Confederates and/or renaming certain US Army bases that up until now have commemorated a handful of CSA Generals.
According to these historical revisionists, Confederate leaders, both military and political, are guilty of a multitude of sins. Their rationale runs the gamut of propagating slavery, to high treason against the United States.
Of course, these same people who damn Southerners from the 1860s judge them by 2020 (usually Leftist) standards.
Not wanting to rehash a debate that’s been raging at least for the past 160 years, the re-writers of history are in dire need of assessing history from the macro level.
Examples would certainly be Shawnee Chief Tecumseh as well as Hawaiian King Kamehameha. After all, both of these men waged war against the United States. Additionally, both cultures have historical episodes of taking rivals as slaves.
In all fairness, Kamehameha never really “went to war” against the United States, but he did authorize an attack on a US merchant vessel, killing the entire crew, save one.
Without a doubt, Tecumseh waged war on the US, not once, but twice. First as leader of an Indian Confederation during 1810’s Tecumseh’s War, and later siding with the British during the War of 1812.
Interestingly enough, the US Navy has most recently had Tecumseh and Kamehameha as the namesakes of two separate nuclear ballistic missile submarines, the USS Tecumseh (SSBN-628) and the USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642).
By their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Navy never again name any US naval vessel after either of these men, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their personal leadership and fighting prowess.
Speaking of the Navy, they must cease forevermore naming ships after Indian tribes. Examples would include such as the USNS Cherokee Nation (T-ATS-7) and the USS Seminole (AT-65).
After all, more than a few Indian tribes not only waged war against the United States, the vast majority also had the nasty habit of taking captives of other tribes, then making them slaves.
As it turns out, the Navy isn’t the only guilty party.
The US Army honors American Indian tribes by way of naming helicopters after them. The fast, agile and deadly AH-64 Apaches and the UH-60 Black Hawks are two prime examples.
Alas, much like the naval examples of the Cherokees and the Seminoles, the Apache and the Black Hawk tribes not only went to war against the United States, they were also known for forcible slavery.
Again, by their own logic, the revisionists should demand that the Army should never again name aircraft after any Indian tribes, no matter how much the United States Armed Forces overall admires their warrior ethos and fighting spirit.
However, the below video is relevant due to its reporting that members of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation are actually celebrating the South Dakota National Guard’s UH 72 Lakota helicopters.
The aircraft will be utilized as secondary emergency medical evacuation helicopters for the state’s many Indian reservations.
This may be presumptuous of me, but I get the impression that these particular Native Americans are proud that this helo is named after them.
Sadly, the Catholic parish of Queen of Peace in Ocala, Florida, isn’t like most Catholic parishes. This parish regularly celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass, the core of which goes back to the 4th century.
But what makes this particular parish stand out today is that a man with a criminal record just today drove his vehicle through the church’s front doors, the proceeded to pour gasoline out onto the vestibule, then set the church alight.
In the church as the time were a number of parishioners preparing for morning Mass. None were reported as injured.
As reported by the official Marion County (Fla) Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook account;
However, the Orlando Sentinel is also reporting that Shields doused the church with an undisclosed amount of gas before setting the church on fire.
The paper is also citing that Shields is also facing the following charges;
Attempted second-degree murder
Burglary with assault
Eluding law enforcement
Coming as a surprise to no one, Shields already has quite the violent criminal past.
A Dunnellon [Florida] man found himself behind bars late Sunday night after a woman claimed he wanted to murder her.
The victim told Marion County sheriff’s deputies that 23-year-old Steven Anthony Shields allegedly had swung a crowbar at her twice before telling her to lie on the ground so he could hit her on the head and kill her. She said she fled from their Dunnellon home and went to a neighbor’s house to call for help.
Deputies then spoke with Shields in the front yard of the residence. He claimed that he did want to murder the victim with a crowbar but denied swinging it at her, a sheriff’s office report says.
After being read his rights, Shields allegedly said he wanted to “kill her because she was a ‘stupid (expletive deleted).’” He also claimed he wanted to use the crowbar because he did not want to “dirty his blades,” the report says.
It goes without saying that due to Bill de Blasio (born Warren Wilhelm Jr.) gutting the NYPD’s budget by over $1 billion, coupled with his saddling-up with the domestic terrorist known as BLM, has police morale dipping to historic lows.
Of course, members of New York’s Finest have pretty much had it.
So much so that the number of officers submitting their retirement papers have seen an increase of up to 411 percent.
A surge of city cops filing papers during the past week more than quadrupled last year’s number — as the city grapples with a surge of shootings — and the stampede caused a bottleneck that’s forcing others to delay putting in their papers, officials and sources said.
The NYPD said Wednesday that 179 cops filed for retirement between June 29 and Monday, an astounding 411 percent increase over the 35 who filed during the same period in 2019.
The astonishing rush for the door came as 503 cops filed for retirement between May 25 — the day George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis, sparking anti-cop protests around the country — and July 3, the NYPD said.
That number represents a 75 percent increase over the 287 who filed for retirement during the same time last year, the NYPD said.
Sources said the deluge of applications had overwhelmed the department — due to cancellation of overtime for the workers who process them — and that the number of daily applicants was being limited as a result.
Seemingly hellbent on turning the Big Apple into more of a Third World dung heap than he’s already succeeded in doing, officers are voicing their reasons for putting in their papers.
As penned by reporters Craig McCarthy, Tina Moore, Larry Celona and Bruce Golding, a line was actually seen forming outside of police headquarters at One Police Plaza in downtown Manhattan, a number of officers spoke on grounds of anonymity (emphasis mine);
“Apparently, the pension section is only taking a certain amount of people per day and I think they are backed up ’til late July, early August,” one cop said.
“That’s why you don’t see like 100 a day, because they are only doing like 35 to 40 a day, by appointment.”
“There’s just droves and droves of people retiring. But there’s no surprise here, who the hell wants to stay on this job?” one cop said.
“Why would you want to stay on this job when people don’t appreciate what you do?”
“This is the best time to leave,” one cop said.
“You’ve padded the numbers as high as you can pad them.”
Another cop noted, “When they cut the OT, a lot of people were done.”
“Also, there’s another class hitting their 20th year in September, so that will be another group leaving,” the source added, noting that cops often retire once they hit the minimum requirement for pension vestment.
On a personal note, this reminds me of an old Russian saying; “People get the leaders they deserve.”
Maybe a bit more direct, to the people of New York City: This is the guy you voted for to be your mayor (twice) … this is what you get.
According to the release, “The email, sent by “Chaney P. Pickard” (per the emails, Pickard is with the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Center), via an official government email address: “Chaney.firstname.lastname@example.org”. The invitation was sent to an unknown number of recipients, but likely in the thousands if the invitation went to all Redstone Arsenal Army civilian and uniformed personnel.”
Yet whoever Chaney P. Pickard is, the same email claims to have both the imprimatur and nihil obstat of the US Army, claiming; “it is by the ‘U.S. Army Equity & Inclusion Agency’ and ‘Assistant Secretary of the Army – Manpower and Reserve Affairs'”.
Furthermore, Congressman Brooks’ office specified, “The illegal, racist and politically partisan material includes a pyramid graphic that claims the following are evidence of “White Supremacy”, and, hence, racism:”
Using the phrase “Make America Great Again”
“Education Funding from Property Taxes”
“Calling the Police on Black People”
Using the phrase “All Lives Matter”
“Denial of White Privilege”
“Celebration of Columbus Day”
Talking about American “Exceptionalism”
Stating “There’s Only One Human Race”
And dozens more!
For his part, Rep Brooks has stated, “Heads should roll,” and “The U.S. Army is not the place for political indoctrination or reeducation experimentation.”
Isn’t it awesome when liberal city council members get accosted by Antifa turds, then the same piss and moan because no cops are around?
Or how ’bout when bottom feeding criminal defense lawyers have to pull out the hardware when militant SJWs crash their gated community?
Yeah, few things are as satisfying as limousine liberals having to actually sully their lives when it comes to actually being a face-to-face with the same professional crybabies they champion.
Well, it is rather funny when the residents of a rather well-to-do (and decidedly liberal) neighborhood start complaining when sex traffickers and dope pushers invade your safe space. Nothing increases property values like used Love Twinkies and discarded heroin syringes strewn on the same sidewalks where your kids play.
Anyhow, coming as a surprise to no one is MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) reporting that the Powderhorn area of Minneapolis is now doo-dad deep with hundreds of homeless pitching their collective tents (double-entendre intended) within raping distance of their front porches (emphasis mine);
Every night, Angelina Roslik says she can watch a steady stream of cars pass in front of her home on a dead-end street overlooking Powderhorn Park in south Minneapolis.
The cars — backing in and out, pulling up next to each other, or idling for long stretches at a time — are a new presence here, she says.
Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month.
“If you sit here long enough, you’ll start to see people coming and going. Coming to the passenger side window. Like we see right there,” Roslik said, looking out from her front porch on Saturday night. “A lot of times, it’s a woman getting in and out.”
She and some of her neighbors are conflicted. They want encampment residents to have stable housing and access to the services they need. At the same time, they feel the encampment is unsafe and unsustainable, for all involved.
But Minneapolis Park Board Commissioner AK Hassan said the crime neighbors are pointing to is not linked to the encampment. “When we talk about crimes that happen here, these are not new crimes,” he said at a press conference at the park last week. “Let’s not find excuses.”
Roslik disagrees. She said she has seen violent disputes at all hours of the night over the past couple of weeks, and people pulling out guns in broad daylight. She’s seen needles and feces scattered in yards up and down the street.
But on a much more serious note, KSTP-TV of the Twin Cities is reporting (video below) that the once safe Powderhorn area is now developing quite the rep for “sexual assaults”, also known to the politically incorrect as plain old rape.
Undoubtedly, one of the more powerful voices both before and during the War Between the States was undoubtedly that of freed-slave, Frederick Douglass.
While the latest fad amongst historically illiterates of the Marxist bend, destroying statues and memorials to long dead Confederates considered blasé, not only are the Founding Fathers, Catholic Saints, Christopher Columbus, Mohandas Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln, US Grant… even images of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Mother are considered fair game by the Left.
The latest on the hit list is Frederick Douglass.
On the 168th anniversary of Douglass delivering an anti-slavery speech in Rochester, NY (1852 to be exact), sometime over the 4th of July weekend, a statue of the famed abolitionist in the same city was forcibly removed from its base and sustained minor damage to the statue itself (see news video below).
The statue was found roughly 50 feet from the largely destroyed base, leaning against a park fence.
While no group or individual has publicly taken credit for the vandalization of the statue, one plausible reason could be nothing more than Douglass was a member of the Republican Party. As noted by Bartelby’s, one of the more famous quotes attributed to Douglass;
“I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.”
Disgusting! We should all realize this movement is about promoting Marxism not stopping racism. They’re not going to stop folks.
I’d like to say this is actually something out of The Onion, Babylon Bee, or even one of my stabs at satire, but it’s not. This is real.
Leftist activists strike again. I’m sure they’ll find a way to claim this is all Trump’s fault (sarcasm, off).
As the New York Post is reporting, the world renown statue of Hans Christian Andersen’s famed Little Mermaid has been defaced and labeled as a “racist fish”;
Police said it had not yet identified the perpetrators. The 107-year-old sculpture, which is visited by 1 million tourists each year, has been vandalized before, including by anti-whaling campaigners and pro-democracy activists, twice suffering decapitation.
“We consider it vandalism and have started an investigation,” a spokesman for the Copenhagen police said.
Protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement around the world have in recent months rallied against statues of historical figures who played a role in racist oppression, such as slave traders and colonialists.
Perhaps putting things into the proper perspective would be Ane Grum-Schwensen, a researcher at the Hans Christian Andersen Center at University of Southern Denmark, who told the Danish news service Ritzau;
“I am having a hard time seeing what is particularly racist in the fairy tale ‘The Little Mermaid’”.
As seen in the video below, Minneapolis’ tousled-haired grad student turned mayor ostensibly got his groove back.
While Mayor Jacob Frey may have earned his Juris Doctor degree at the Villanova University School of Law in 2009, he actually started-off in the world of higher education in 2004 at Virginia’s prestigious College of William & Mary.
Majoring at Contemporary Urban Dance Theory at W&M’s Drama and Theater Department, Frey showed-off some of his college educated super-groovy moves while he danced for peace.
Hizzonor also made a point of highlighting his Minor degree, History of Twenty First Century Hipster Haute Couture.
Always the political fashion plate, Frey went full Pajama Boy when he transformed his signature skinny jeans into clamdigger skinny jeans. Eat your heart out, Laura Petrie.
It sure looks like Frey’s $127,000 college debt for his BA was money well spent.
Just to make sure you’re paying attention, this article is satire.
Democrat hearts everywhere are just all aflutter over the first black woman to become the President of the United States (of course, if Joe wins. Even then, he’ll resign after six months “for health reasons).
Despite more buzz than my graduating class in 1977, all the hype regarding Sleepy Joe choosing an ethnic minority female running mate may end-up being all for naught.
As reported by Breitbart.com, Biden certainly appears to be backing away from bringing onboard a “woman of color” as his running mate;
Biden, who is facing criticism after appearing to claim that African Americans considering voting for President Donald Trump “ain’t black,” told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday during an interview that he was not ready to promise to put a woman of color on the ticket despite rumors in recent weeks that he was heading in that direction.
“Look, I’m not going to get into that now because we haven’t gotten there yet,” the former vice president said when asked if his running mate would be a woman of color. “There are women of color under consideration and there are women from every part of the country under consideration.”
“There’s a lot of really qualified women that are ready to be president, but I’m not making that commitment,” Biden added.
If you aren’t exactly sure who Sheldon Whitehouse is, he’s the pasty-faced, doughy, somewhat lispy junior US Senator from the great state of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (yes, that’s the full name of the state).
With that aside, Sen. Whitehouse also has somewhat of a habit of pissing off certain high-level federal judges.
Example, as recently reported by The Federalist, Whitehouse filed a brief threatening the SCOTUS to either rule the way he sees fit on a pending case involving firearms and the state of New York, or else.
As reporter William Maurer of The Federalist reports, Whitehouse’s brief is best summed up as “A friendly reminder, like when a mugger tells a witness not to go to police or his legs might break.”
It’s bad enough that Whitehouse has already threatened the Supreme Court, but now he’s going after Judge Neomi Rao of the District of Columbia’s Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals.
As Maurer cites, Judge Rao is (emphasis mine) “one of three judges on the panel that will hear the emergency petition for a writ of mandamus filed by General Michael Flynn. The writ General Flynn is seeking would order the district judge hearing General Flynn’s case — Emmet Sullivan — to grant the motion of the United States to dismiss the charges altogether, ending the prosecution.“
However, reporter Maurer also notes of the situation Whitehouse has plopped himself into the middle of (emphasis mine),
“In this case, the defendant agrees with the prosecutors that the case be dismissed. So there’s really no case or controversy left, that is, no reason for the judge not to grant the petition for a writ of mandamus. So how did Senator Whitehouse react? “Where you see Neomi Rao,” he tweetered Friday, “you can expect a lot of Trumpy dirt to follow. She’s a cartoon of a fake judge.” It was a shocking message on the eve of a judicial proceeding and from a member of the Judiciary Committee.”
The Marshall County (Mississippi) Sheriff’s Department is investigating as arson, the burning-down of the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs, MS, as reported by MSN.com news.
What makes this decidedly local story relevant to a nation-wide audience is that the pastor of First Pentecostal, Rev. Jerry Waldrop, recently sued the Holly Springs city government against the COVID-19 prompted stay-at-home order.
MSN is also reporting that the Marshall County S.D. cited that a none-too-subtle (and poorly spellchecked) graffiti message was also found on-site.
“Bet you stay home now you hypokrites” was found spray painted on the parking lot asphalt.
Along with the rather illiterate message was also painted the atom symbol with the letter “A” inside, according to the New York Times, which is also used as the logo for militant atheist groups.
To make things even more interesting, MSN is also reporting;
Waldrop sued the city in April, saying police disrupted an Easter church service and Bible study.
City Attorney Shirley Byers said the church had violated quarantine rules by gathering in a group of nearly 40.
Waldrop argued the parishioners had been practicing social distancing inside and had only congregated indoors when weather left no other option.
Gov. Tate Reeves’s (R) statewide restrictions have treated churches as essential services and allowed them to remain open, but the city’s rules were more stringent. In late April, it amended its order to allow drive-thru church services, according to the AP.
Byers said Waldrop’s lawsuit has not yet been served.
In the meantime, Gov. Reeves sent his condolences to the faithful of First Pentecostal;
Many years ago, I remember quite the D-lister movie hitting multiplexes everywhere, a real dud titled “Surf Nazis Must Die”.
Not only did I not know what a Surf Nazi was, I was also not quite sure who had the authority to put them all to death.
Here we are 33-years later, who knew this monumental belly-flop of a movie would end-up being prophetic?
As the Memorial Day long weekend is nearly upon us, New York City mayor and aspiring Oberst-Gruppenführer Bill de Blasio (born: ‘Warren Wilhelm Jr.’) has laid down the law to both New Yorkers and out-of-state visitors that if you hit the waves, the aqua-cops will be tossing you into a presumably soggy Paddy Wagon.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) warned Monday that the city is serious about keeping swimmers out of the water at its public beaches Memorial Day weekend, even as other locations begin to lift their coronavirus-related restrictions.
“Anyone tries to get in the water, they’ll be taken right out of the water,” he told reporters.
The mayor said that city officials would not put up police barriers at beaches, giving New Yorkers the chance to comply voluntarily. Swimming, lifeguards, parties, barbecues and sports would all be prohibited on the beaches, de Blasio added, and social-distancing rules will still apply.
“It’s a dangerous situation to ever go in the water if there are no lifeguards present,” he added, saying officials are also concerned about scenarios where large numbers of people take the bus or subway to beaches.
Only residents of the communities surrounding the beaches would be allowed to use the beach as “just open space you can walk on,” he said.
If you think for one second that ‘America’s Confirmed Bachelor’ Sen. Lindsey Graham intends to bring his buddy Barack Obama before the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, guess again.
In regards to the declassification of the Obama Administration’s cover-up while they framed President Trump’s former National Security Advisor, Lt Gen Michael Flynn, the Palmetto State’s senior senator made clear that he has zero intention of ever calling Comrade Barry to testify before his committee.
Senate Republicans will investigate the Obama administration’s decision to target national security adviser Michael Flynn following the 2016 presidential election, but they do not intend to subpoena former President Barack Obama or require him to testify in front of a panel,Politico reports.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told media Tuesday that his committee is prepared to investigate former Obama administration officials, particularly officials affiliated with the Department of Justice, and the FBI over their targeting of Flynn in light of Attorney General William Barr’s decision to drop perjury charges against the former national security advisor. Barack Obama will likely be left off the list of those asked to testify.
“I’m not anticipating calling President Obama,” Graham said, adding that it was likely the panel will question FBI Director James Comey and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.
HEIR TICKET TO PARADISE is the blood-red headband and the small metal key that they wear into battle. ”Sar Allah,” (”Warriors of God”), some of the headbands read in Farsi script, identifying the wearers as divinely designated martyrs who will use their keys to go directly to heaven if killed in the holy war against Iraq declared by their leader, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
The headbands and the keys are worn by young boys, aged 12 to 17, who are recruited by local clergy or simply rounded up in the villages of Iran, given an intensive indoctrination in the Shiite tradition of martyrdom, and then sent weaponless into battle against Iraqi armor.
Often bound together in groups of 20 by ropes to prevent the fainthearted from deserting, they hurl themselves on barbed wire or march into Iraqi mine fields in the face of withering machine-gun fire to clear the way for Iranian tanks.
Across the back of their khaki-colored shirts is stenciled the slogan: ”I have the special permission of the Imam to enter heaven.”
Living up to his promise made just a few short days ago, former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) made public the names of Establishment Media so-called “reporters” that are essentially little better than mouthpieces for Deep State Democrats.
Appearing on the FNC question-and-answer program “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo, Gowdy must have decided that now is the right time to namedrop.
