The Week in Pictures: Supply Chain Edition

Featured image We are happy to report that we are not experiencing any supply chain issues with regard to memes, pics, and headlines for TWiP. Hurricane Brandon continues to topple the ramshackle trailer park of the Biden White House leaving an ample debris field of comic material, while Democrats in Congress keep living up to Will Rogers’ famous line about how “I don’t belong to an organized political party—I’m a Democrat!” Let’s »

The Week in Pictures: Shatner > Brandon Edition

Featured image Brandon is still trending yuuuge, but this week definitely belongs to Shatner. Brandon will be around for a while, but really, how often do we get to indulge a full on Kirkasm? Meanwhile, Biden and Harris continue to be the ghost ship White House. How’s that reconciliation package coming? Maybe Southwest Airlines can help them land it. Oh, wait. Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

Columbus Day in Pictures

Featured image John has already dilated the self-abuse of liberals with regards to Indigenous Peoples Day Columbus Day, so I won’t add more here (except to say that when it comes to the supposed sin of “assimilation,” people ought to meditate on the deeper meaning of the seldom-noted clause in the Constitution which reads “excluding indians not taxed”—there’s a serious principle embedded in that seemingly technical phrase that is totally lost on today’s »

The Week in Pictures: Brandon for Veep Edition

Featured image It’s obvious that if Trump runs again in 2024, he should name “Brandon” as his running mate, so rally crowds can yell “Let’s go Brandon!” This is better than shouting the vernacular version, and the media will be totally flummoxed having to explain it over and over again. Meanwhile, did Facebook have the worst week ever, or what? Headlines of the week:     And finally. . .   »

The Week in Pictures: Biden’s Terrible No Good Weak Edition

Featured image The problem with believing progressive B.S. about the “side of history” is that sometimes “progress” hits a sand bar. Like this week for the Dems. So what do they do? Rage against our constitutional order, as noticed here over and over again. But we may look back on this week as the week when Biden’s presidency hit the rocks and sank.         Headlines of the week:   »

The Week in Pictures: Fib Edition

Featured image It’s pretty clear by now that the FBI should change its name so its agency acronym properly reflects its true character: Fabricated Inventions Bureau, or FIB. Of course, the White House might not like the explicit competition from such truth-in-labeling.   You know the old saying about how what American needs is a good five-cent cigar? Well. . . Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Met Gala Edition

Featured image Well, it’s been a bad week, what with the California recall failing miserably, news of a “Seven-Days-in-May” scenario playing out in the closing weeks of the Trump Administration courtesy of General Thoroughly Modern Millie, and more COVIDery from Slow Joe and His Crew. But at least we have the Met Gala! Liberals are always great for free entertainment on the hypocrisy front. And AOC is the gift that keeps on »

The Geek in Pictures: Peak Woke Edition?

Featured image • These first few charts from the great Zach Goldberg are a couple years old, but it is worth aggregating them again to demonstrate how wokery broke out from the campus and took over the media. But could this be a woke bubble about to burst? Surveys show large majorities of Americans hate this business. • The economy continues to be weird. Or in bar chart form: Contrary indicator: if »

The Week in Pictures: Long Strange Trip Edition

Featured image The most incredible thing about the many incredible things to note on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 is who is leading the country right now. You’d be forgiven the mordant thought that the 9/11 attackers succeeded in their larger aims. More on this scene later today. Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Interwar Years Edition

Featured image Supposedly the American war in Afghanistan is over, but I keep going back to the Bertolt Brecht line, “What if they gave a war and nobody came?” The anti-war left used to emblazon this on t-shirts and bumper stickers, ignoring the immediate sequel: “Then, war will come to you.” More likely some decades from now we are going to look back on this new period that began this week as »

The Geek in Pictures: Poll Position Edition

Featured image With the California recall two weeks away, it is an interesting coincidence that both polls trends for Biden and Newsom are tracking in a similar direction. Let the charting begin! Lots of other interesting stuff happening out in identity land: And what Geek in Pictures without some energy charts, all showing the same thing: fossil fuels? Yeah, they still rule. Junk bonds: what could go wrong? So why do we »

The Week in Pictures: Biden Brain Freeze Edition

Featured image Has anyone considered the possibility that Joe Biden’s prodigious consumption of ice cream has given him a permanent case of brain freeze? Now I know what you’re thinking: that explanation assumes he had a . . . do I really need to finish this sentence? At least he prefers soft-serve ice cream, which fits the progressive sensibility. I wonder if soft-serve works against COVID? Headlines of the week:   And »

The Geek in Pictures: COVID-Stan Edition

Featured image I’m working on a theory of the case that somehow the COVID fiasco and the Afghanistan fiasco are clearly linked at some metaphysical level. And why didn’t we just have the wit to threaten the Taliban with unleashing COVID on them if they didn’t cooperate? Funny how we don’t hear anything about the COVID risks of the evacuation. Are people being tested at the airport? Bonus Biden Incompetence Chart: And »

The Week in Pictures: Kabul Cabal Edition

Featured image What else is there to say about the comprehensive failure of the Biden presidency unfolding in front of our eyes? Jimmy Carter must be shaking his head, while Barack Obama is likely trying to scrub his reported remark on “never underestimate Joe’s ability to f— things up.” Where do I send the one-way plane ticket: Headlines of the week: The Babylon Bee predicts: And the Los Angeles Times delivers: American »

Midweek in Pictures: Afghan Bugout Edition

Featured image President Biden’s July statement that “there’s going to be no circumstance where you see people being lifted off the roof of the United States embassy” will stand next to President George H.W. Bush’s “Read my lips: no new taxes” pledge as the most self-damning statement from a modern president. And we learn that as recently as the middle of last week, the State Department was flying over a regular rotation of »

The Week in Pictures: Peak Liberal Hypocrisy Edition

Featured image Between the Cuomo disgrace and President Obama’s “scaled back” and maskless celebrity birthday bash, did this week see peak liberal hypocrisy? Surely not, because, like Olympic records, there’s always another level liberals can reach. Speaking of the gender wage gap: And why not include loyal Power Line reader NM: Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

The Geek in Pictures: Kinky Charts Edition

Featured image There are enough charts this week with obvious kinks in them to excite every male Democrat in New York. • As we noted yesterday, the Biden Administration is now begging OPEC countries to increase oil output because of this, which the Biden Administration helped cause (hat tip—Mark Perry, as usual): At least someone is still investing in new oil and gas production—oh yeah, those guys: Also relevant: • We keep »
