From zero to Nero

Featured image In their own way President Biden’s White House minders must be just about as far gone as he is. With the announcement that Consumer Price Index had declined year-over-year from 9.1 percent to 8.5 percent, they thought it made sense to push the line that the numbers reflect “zero inflation last month” (i.e., on a month to month basis). The Bureau of Labor Statistics data are compiled here (home page) »

Dork Brandon

Featured image Is this the dumbest PR stunt of all time? If you haven’t seen it yet, the Democrats are trying to take “Let’s go, Brandon” and make it their own, much like Donald Trump did with fake news. Thus, they are putting out “Dark Brandon” memes in which Joe Biden appears as a rather sinister superhero. This one comes from Biden’s Deputy Press Secretary: A Biden staffer tried to make Dark »

Most Transparent Lie of the Day

Featured image The White House leaked to its media adjunct that Biden and his aides didn’t know about the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago until they read about it on Twitter: Senior White House officials found out about the FBI’s Mar a Lago raid on Twitter, had no notice, per source familiar — Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) August 8, 2022 This claim is laughable. There is no way that Merrick Garland authorized a raid »

An utterly bizarre statement

Featured image The Daily Mail has published another exploration of the Biden family business in this story by Josh Boswell. Boswell draws on the laptop from hell and White House visitor logs to show the apparently direct involvement of President Biden in the business. Please check out Boswell’s excellent story. Boswell’s story is profusely illustrated, Daily Mail style. Best of all, it includes the statement below from Latham & Watkins criminal defense »

I Scream, You Scream, Reuters Screams…

Featured image I am a day late with this, but it is still worth a chuckle. Someone posted a short video clip of Joe Biden walking away from his wife while she is speaking at a podium, and added ice cream truck music as though Biden is being lured away by the prospect of ice cream. This is what is commonly known as a joke: When your MKUltra trigger is ice cream »

A clown-car administration

Featured image President Biden is the Clown-in-Chief of the big circus that is the Biden administration. He has half a mind to be president. There is nothing funny about it. His administration is a circus colloquially speaking. President Biden and senior administration officials are not serious people. They have manifested as political hacks. Biden’s selection of Kamala Harris as his running mate set the tone. Her self-identification as black was prerequisite to »

Biden tests positive again

Featured image President Biden took an ungracious victory lap when he came through his bout with the current variant of the Covid virus this week. I discussed his remarks in “What base ingratitude.” This morning he tested positive again (per an antigen test) in what his physician has deemed a case of post-Paxlovid “‘rebound’ positivity” — in a statement released from somewhere he can’t be asked public follow-up questions. He says Biden »

“What base ingratitude”

Featured image Winston Churchill was a magnanimous man of exemplary character, yet Stanley Baldwin tested his limits. He held Baldwin responsible for Britain’s lack of preparedness to go to war with Germany when the crisis inevitably came, as Richard Langworth recounts. During the blitz, when informed that a German bomb had fallen on Baldwin’s house, Churchill quipped, “What base ingratitude.” When Baldwin died Churchill rendered judgment: “I wish Stanley Baldwin no ill, »

Biden unblinking

Featured image According to the White House, President Biden has tested negative and recovered from his bout with Covid. This according to the announcement of of Biden’s personal physician today. Precautions will be taken to protect him from a “rebound” infection. Where is Kevin O’Connor, the president’s personal physician? He appears to have adopted his own basement strategy a la the Biden 2020 presidential campaign. He has remained away from the press »

New Hampshire Dems Say: Go Away, Joe!

Featured image This Granite State Poll, conducted by the University of New Hampshire, is one of the more remarkable sets of survey data I have ever seen. UNH surveyed New Hampshire Democrats who are likely to vote in the 2024 presidential primary. The result? Joe Biden finished second with 16%, a shockingly low total for a sitting president less than halfway through his term. Pete Buttigieg came out on top with 17%. »

Kevin Roche: Pandemic of the vaccinated

Featured image Given the news of President Biden’s case of Covid, Mr. Techno Fog cruelly excavated the videos below of Biden lecturing us that the spread of the virus represents a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.” July 2021: Joe Biden: “You’re not going to get Covid if you have these vaccinations.” July 2022: Joe Biden tests positive for Covid.pic.twitter.com/y4UjRcyGd0 — James Melville (@JamesMelville) July 21, 2022 "This continues to be a pandemic of »

So Biden Has Covid

Featured image The White House announced today that Joe Biden has tested positive for covid. There is nothing surprising or particularly newsworthy about this, apart from the fact that, given his age and degree of frailty, Biden is in a relatively high risk group. Given the number of White House employees who have contracted covid over the past year and a half, if anything it is a bit remarkable that it took »

Emergency, Biden style

Featured image The presidency of Joe Biden has brought on a series of emergencies since the first day of his administration: the erasure of our southern border and a horde of illegal immigrants. Historic levels of inflation. The suppression of our homegrown energy production. The demoralization of the armed forces. New lows in gender dysphoria and the culture wars. All this in 18 months and we’ve only just begun. Yet Biden rattles »

Joe Biden, Cancer Victim [Updated]

Featured image Joe Biden opened a new front in the war on energy today when he claimed that he got cancer from living in a state that has oil refineries. The occasion was a speech on global warming. The remark initially appeared to be a stunningly casual health announcement during a speech about global warming in which he described emissions from oil refineries near his childhood home in Claymont, Del. “That’s why »

Should We Impeach Biden?

Featured image Everyone expects Republicans to recapture the House of Representatives in November, and I have no reason to disagree. This raises the question: assuming Republicans do control the House, should they impeach Joe Biden? That Biden has committed impeachable offenses seems beyond dispute. He has deliberately opened the Southern border, in defiance of our immigration laws, and has compounded the offense by distributing illegal aliens around the country. Most recently, Biden »

Slow Joe then & now

Featured image Steve Hayward has observed the sudden blast of stories regarding President Biden’s age-related decline. Most recently, Robert Reich has piled on in the Guardian. The theme of the stories is that Biden will be too old to run for office again in 2024 and ought to make his intentions clear after the midterm elections. If Biden is seen to be too old now to run for office in two years, »

Quote of the weekend

Featured image Lance Morrow’s Wall Street Journal column sends up an age-related warning to President Biden. Morrow warns Biden of his onrushing 80th birthday and identifies a few portents: Mr. President, if you’re sick of people talking about how old you are, think how I feel. You’re only 79. I’m 82—three years down the trail ahead of you. You’re still a kid, though it is true that, crossing the White House lawn, »
