The Week in Pictures: Fredo Edition

Featured image I guess it is not embarrassing enough for Chris Cuomo to work at CNN. He had to go to eleven in the own-goal asshattery department, going postal on some nuisance bystander, and claiming that the term “Fredo” is a racist slur. Another example of liberal hypocrisy and goalpost shifting: anyone else recall how one of the left’s putdowns of George W. Bush was that he was the “Fredo” of the »

Jeffrey Epstein’s Week in Pictures: Special Edition

Featured image The Jeffrey Epstein affair may well cause a world-ending thermonuclear meme explosion, but Saturday is still five days away and by then we’ll have four more new big stories to choose from for the Week in Pictures main theme, so Epstein gets a special edition. (And keep ’em coming, readers!) »

The Week in Pictures: Trite Supremacy Edition (With Jeffrey Epstein Updates)

Featured image I’m looking for a stockbroker who can point me to a company that manufactures dog whistle detectors, because they are selling like hotcakes to liberals right now. But apparently they are all made in China and are blocked by Trump’s tariffs, which is why so many dog whistles are going unheard by the American people. You just knew that Trump’s tariffs were really about assuring white supremacy, because why else »

The Week in Pictures: Dark Psychic Forces Edition

Featured image Don’t be so quick to discount the Democrats’ chances just because their first two debates were such complete clown shows. It could be they are borrowing a page from . . . Trump! They’re doing reality television one better! Don’t go calling them apprentices, just because none of them have been fired yet!  But this whole “dark psychic forces” business? Forget Russian hacking! Does this mean the Jedi have infiltrated »

The Week in Pictures: Mueller Time Edition

Featured image Robert Mueller’s testimony this week was the biggest flop since Heaven’s Gate, which is an apt comparison since Democrats are in full eschaton mode and their heavenly dream of deposing Trump is turning into the hellscape of a likely second term of full-scale Trumping (Trumpdown?). Maybe Mueller was trying to pull off a community theater version of Columbo? Or maybe he’s a deep cover agent for the Russians after all. »

The Week in Pictures: Mod Squad Edition

Featured image Forget Mean Girls. The Mod Squad is a better appellation for the Fearsome Foursome who dominate the House Democratic Caucus. The premise of the original Mod Squad was described as “taking three rebellious, disaffected young social outcasts and convincing them to work as unarmed undercover detectives as an alternative to being incarcerated.” Now we just elect such people to Congress—incarceration of a different kind—and sit back with a yuuuge bucket »

The Week in Pictures: Head Exploding Edition

Featured image Some weeks an obvious theme suggests itself. Then there are weeks like this when everything seems to be spinning out of control. A leftist Democrats accuses a powerful white politician of being a racist. Ho-hum—except the person being accused is Nancy Pelosi! Cue schadenfreude music, and pass the popcorn. Meanwhile, Bill Clinton is back in the news again, and for the same reason he usually gets back into the news. »

The Week in Pictures: Covfefe Sequel Edition

Featured image The news media and Trump-haters everywhere are on DefCon1 over Trump’s latest supposed verbal confusion, in which he reveals the long-held secret that the Continental Army of 1775 secured the nation’s airports from the British. They haven’t had this much outrage since the infamous “covfefe” tweet. It prompted Jim Acosta to embarrass himself once again (I know—a daily occurrence). Now I think this just shows the far-sightedness of the Founding »

The Week in Pictures: Debate Fatigue Edition

Featured image Good grief! We’ve got several more months of debates like this? I’m suffering a popcorn hangover, and I’m on my third liver of the week already. The clear winner is Donald Trump. Cheer up—if the Dems flame out as it appears they will, AOC will be the top Democrat come 2021. Won’t that be fun. Headlines of the week: And finally. . . a blast from the past: »

The Week in Pictures: Inconceivable Edition!

Featured image I have a major confession to make. Could be hazardous with our readership. I ate my first Impossible Burger yesterday. Now, I’ve been holding out for a Princess Bride-inspired Inconceivable Burger (conceptual photo below), but no daring entrepreneur has yet attempted a prototype. So I tried the Impossible Burger. And. . . it was pretty good. Suspiciously good. I’ll bet it’s really made from Soylent Green. But do not worry »

The Week in Pictures: Prince of Whales Edition

Featured image Did President Trump really write “the Prince of Whales” in a tweet this week? Why yes—yes he did. (See below.) It may be his greatest tweet ever. The actual current Prince of Wales is a ridiculous buffoon, and I think Queen Liz is living so long because she knows it will be better if Charles has as short a reign as possible. But Trump might also have been referring to »

The Week in Pictures: Brutish Empire Edition

Featured image Hey, I’ve got a great idea. For all those Brits who are still grumpy about 1776 and all that, how about we offer to rejoin Great Britain. Trump can become prime minister! I’ll bet he can get a Brexit deal done faster than you can say “Jerry Nadler on Line One!” The Queen has the right idea: And you gotta love polite British protesters: Headlines of the week (Florida Men »

The Week in Pictures: It’s Mueller Overtime Edition

Featured image This week Robert Mueller emerged from his hobbit hole, saw his shadow, and ensured there would be at least six more weeks (if not six more months) of agony for Nancy Pelosi, and more microphone mugging by Jerry Nadler, aka Jabba the Hutt on Weight Watchers. I’m checking my evolutionary biology textbooks, because I’m starting to suspect that groundhogs are genetically related to swamp rats—Washington DC’s most conspicuous rodent. Headlines »

The Week in Pictures: Lame of Drones Edition

Featured image I never did much get into Throne Games, or Lame of Drones, or whatever it’s called—not enough sex and violence for my tastes. But I hear every critic, which means everyone in the democratized era of social criticism via anti-social media, is down on the last season and the ending. But the real reason for the criticism is obvious: the series ended, and viewers wanted it to go on forever. »

The Week in Pictures: Train Wreck Edition

Featured image I’m thinking of printing up some bumper stickers that read, “Honk if you’re a Democrat who is not running for president!” Mayor de Blasio is now in, no doubt with memories of how well both John Lindsay and Rudy Giuliani fared with their base in Gracie Mansion. Don’t they know you need to live midtown on 5th Avenue to win the White House? Is there a switchyard big enough to »

The Week in Pictures: Nadlering Nabob of Nihilism Edition

Featured image How lucky is Trump to have Jerry Nadler as his chief inquisitor on Capitol Hill? I recall Nadler from his Jabba-the-Hutt days defending Bill Clinton from impeachment exactly 20 years ago. He must have thought we wouldn’t notice it is the same guy if he underwent barometric surgery—that’s where you let high pressure squeeze you into the human likeness of a raisin, but side effects include a full-blown case of »

The Week in Pictures: Close Down the Barr Edition

Featured image That croaking sound you hear are the dying hopes of the Trump Derangement sufferers as their malady enters its terminal phase, their dreams shattered by the stolid performance of Attorney General William Barr. Up next, the Inspector General’s report from the Justice Department. Unfortunately there’s no vaccination for liberalism. Keep on Trumpin! Good times! Headlines of the week (Florida Man still working overtime): And finally. . . »
