As the saying goes, ‘those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones,’ yet Brian Stelter was residing in the most fragile of glass houses whilst launching cinder blocks. Brian Stelter and his comrades at CNN are some of the least credible “journalists” in the industry, and for Stelter to be pointing fingers at anyone and questioning their trustworthiness makes him a knucklehead.

Neil Young was as anti-establishment as one gets. And now, in the October of his years, Young has totally flipped. He’s fully onboard with government control, so much so that he’s willing to put his money where his mouth is. A man whom the establishment would have loved to have silenced in the early days of his career is now calling for the silencing of others, particularly Joe Rogan. The singer who attacked the government and the establishment for putting “Mother Nature on the run, in the 1970s” is now advocating for that same government and establishment to de-platform those with whom he disagrees.
We couldn’t have a week go by without our esteemed president making another wild claim, this time asserting that he was once arrested in his younger days during a civil rights march. Even the Washington Post gave him four Pinocchios for this one. We can only assume that this alleged arrest happened sometime between being awarded the Medal of Honor for trying to help Bubba and his other friends get out of that jungle and then appearing on the Dick Cavett show with John Lennon.
Cenk Uygur’s point that Biden could/should take “strong action” via implementing lockdowns lift’s the veil on the left’s embrace of government authority. Uygur’s attitude is essentially, “It’s within Biden’s purview to implement vaccine mandates, and if you still refuse, he can just lock you down. So, just shut your mouth and do whatever your government tells you to do.” It’s also interesting that Uygur continues with this mentality even after Biden himself confessed this week that there is no federal solution to the virus.
Employees are accountable to their employers, and employers are accountable to their owners: either stockholders or other types of proprietors. If $1 million goes missing from a private company tomorrow, no matter how big that company might be, by the end of the day someone will be packing up their belongings into cardboard boxes and heading out the door.
Knucklehead of the week? On Christmas morning? Yes, and yes. When knuckleheadedness takes a holiday in this country, so will we. But until then, we will persist regardless of the calendar .This week’s winner seems to have been begging for this award since she came into office, yet Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was always outdone by another knucklehead: but not this week.
On Monday, Warren channeled her inner-AOC when she opined, “Families are rightly upset that the price of meat has gone through the roof. Who’s to blame? Meatpacking monopolies that are using inflation as cover to raise prices and make record profits.” It’s those greedy capitalists, you see. Isn’t it fascinating that they’re only becoming greedy now that Biden is in the White House?
Jeffrey Epstein, and by extension Ghislaine Maxwell, cavorted with some of the most influential men in the world, and the majority of those men either align with leftist ideals or outright represent them. And while they were doing so, Epstein and perhaps his fellow cavorters were having sex with children. The most famous Epstein associate is, of course, Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton, who traveled with Epstein on his hedonistic Lolita Express dozens of times, though there’s no direct evidence that Clinton participated in the shenanigans. Yet.
Knucklehead Of The Week: Everyone Accepts That Jussie Smollett Is Guilty… Except For Jussie Smollett
Former Empire actor Jussie Smollett should have complied with The First Rule of Holes, which states: “When you’re in one, stop digging.” And while there are many reasons to honor Mr. Smollett as this week’s top knucklehead, it is his insistence on ignoring reality which we cite as the top rationale.
The only CNN personality to have been suspended in years has been none other than Jeffrey “Loobin” Toobin, who got caught spanking his monkey on a Zoom call with colleagues from The New Yorker. Even then, Toobin’s sabbatical was technically a “leave of absence,” and Toobin eventually returned to work. So, what did Fredo Cuomo do that was so egregious to get himself suspended?
Hillary, and indeed most Democrats, don’t believe you are intelligent enough to process what you see and hear in the news. You’re not bright enough to make up your minds for yourselves. You need a gatekeeper to “help” you. You need some to provide “perspective” to make sure you come to the proper conclusions. You need an authoritarian to ensure your opinions align with Hillary’s opinions, because if you don’t, then you have the wrong opinion. And Hillary can’t have that.

Before we examine Bush’s foolishness, we must first recognize a job well done. It’s unclear exactly who is responsible for determining membership in “The Squad,” but whoever that group or individual is, they are doing a fantastic job. For a group wishing to maintain a prominent level of knuckleheadedness – and that group already included AOC, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar – they must be certain to guard against letting in any run-of-the-mill-idiot.
So, who would be more adept at deceit, and at pretending to be feeling something they were not? The part-time, high-school aged lifeguard? Or the clinically trained psychologist who is not only an expert on human behavior, but teaches that subject to college students and conducts research on such matters at one of the top universities in the country, Stanford University? You don’t need a PhD to answer that one correctly.
There are many lessons to be learned from Tuesday’s election results, but AOC’s assertion isn’t one of them. Terry McAuliffe didn’t lose because he wasn’t far enough to the left… far from it. McAuliffe lost because, among other things, his unrepentant leftism turned off large swaths of Virginia’s electorate; in historic numbers. And we shouldn’t assume AOC is simply trying to sugarcoat things, that’s not what’s at play with her comments here. There’s no doubt: AOC truly believes the reason McAuliffe lost was that he was too moderate.
So, Terry McAuliffe and his campaign, who have been losing ground in their race to defeat Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin like CNN has been losing viewers, had a decision to make. They wanted to make a hit piece on Youngkin, obviously, so who to choose? Who should be the face of such an ad? Some milquetoast television announcer with a deep, melodious voice? Nah. Some up-and-coming, energetic young celebrity? Nope. They chose Eric Swalwell. What happened Terry, were Andrew Cuomo and Michael Avenatti too busy to make a cameo appearance for you?
The so-called “Town Hall Meeting” Thursday night was set up to be a cake walk for President Joe Biden. It was in Baltimore, Maryland, a city that is about as blue as it gets. It was on CNN, a network which is essentially just another arm of his Administration’s communication department. And it lasted for less-than seventy-five minutes which meant Biden could answer some questions and would still have time to go back to the White House basement and watch reruns of The Munsters.
Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten (I know, it still sounds weird to me too, saying “his husband”) became the parents of two newborn babies in August, and Buttigieg took some time off: fair enough. When my children were born, I took time off as well, and if I remember correctly, it was a week or less each time. I spoke with a few friends on this topic, and they had similar experiences; a week off for paternity leave, if not less.
But what earns Hillary her spot as Knucklehead of the Week is not her perjurious past, it’s her failure to recognize it. Hillary making the case that this is her “first foray into fiction” is akin to Michael Moore telling us that the ice cream cone he’s inhaling with chocolate hanging from his chin is his “first foray into desserts.”
Considering that Harris is Vice-President of our country and not the head of the local Rotary Club, and also taking into account that Israel is both our greatest ally and only democracy in the most volatile region in the world, that discussion at GMU would have probably been a good time for Harris to ask, “Are you out of your mind? Can you cite any evidence to support your ridiculous claim?”
Ask any American golfer who has ever had the honor to play in a Ryder Cup, ‘What’s the most pressure you’ve ever felt on a golf course?’ and the answer is likely to involve a Ryder Cup performance. The reason why players feel so much pressure is because the view the prospect of failure as not only failing themselves and their teammates, but their country as well. They care about how succeeding at the Ryder Cup, perhaps more so than at any other competition.
Trump has thrown his weight behind a conservative businesswoman named Harriet Hageman, and it’s likely to come down to a battle between those two, and you can take this to the bank: Hageman will point to Bush’s help as an example of all that is wrong with the GOP, and she will be correct. Nepotism, favoritism, and backroom deals. And with that approach, Liz Cheney will essentially be running against Donald Trump.
Within only days of Election Day last year, Biden and his cronies began touting the idea that “the adults are back in charge;” a poke in the eye to the Trump Administration, and a promise of better policies from Biden. But we are now over eight months into Biden’s reign of ineptitude, and that pledge for proficiency seems more ridiculous every day.
When first concocting the idea of “Knucklehead of the Week,” the idea of needing to pluralize the award at some point was considered likely. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were the favorites to take the prize first, but there was always a possibility that AOC and Rashida Tlaib would have to share the title. Or perhaps Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi would have to divvy up the honor. We never dreamed we’d have to spread it across approximately 170 million Americans
