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.
Knucklehead of the Week
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.
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?
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.
Knucklehead Of The Week: Rittenhouse Prosecutor Thomas Binger… He Must’ve Been Absent That Day From Law School
Very often, when a prosecutor is done working for the government in the prosecution of cases, he or she will move to the private sector and work on the other side as a criminal defense attorney. If Mr. Binger indeed decides to take that path, and if you ever happen to be in Kenosha, Wisconsin and in need of a lawyer, don’t call Mr. Binger. Go to the nearest nail salon and see if they have a Jimmy McGill-type working in the back or opt for a public defender if need be. But don’t hire Thomas Binger.
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.
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?”
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.
The congresswoman, who likes to portray herself as a staunch feminist, apparently misses the irony of her statement. If you’re trying to defend a woman’s so-called right to an abortion AOC, it would probably help if you actually called that person a woman. And if there is indeed no such thing as gender, and if we must pretend that anyone can menstruate, how do you know that Governor Abbott can’t menstruate?
Not only is California still the land of fruits and nuts, the Golden State is fruitier and nuttier than ever, which makes the fact that Gruesome Newsom faces the distinct possibility of being recalled with the September 14th special election even that much more remarkable than it would be otherwise. In a country with some extreme leftists in positions of power, the Democrat Newsom ranks near, if not at the top of that list.
