Gas-Hoarding, Protein-Shedding, and Other Uniquely American Mental Disorders

Friends, I am FULLY VACCINATED and living my best life, ushering in a bold new age of cancel culture in horse racing and shedding proteins all over every Real Murican I can find. Things’re so goshdarn shiny n’ happy these days, I can almost forget about the millions-strong army of brainwashed morons trying to destroy my country. Almost.......
..............
About that protein shedding, yyyyyyyeah, welcome to the latest daffy conspiracy theory pinballing through MAGA Nation’s collective empty noggin. Kudos to whoever dreamed this one up, though, because the Children of the Candy Corn are so worried about the sinister, shedding-prone proteins manufactured by Bill Gates’ Deep State Vaccination Cabal that they’re...god, I can’t even type it...they’re SOCIAL DISTANCING in terror. Some are even talking about, I kid you not,
wearing masks to protect themselves. I think this makes it fairly clear that A) there is indeed a higher power and B) it enjoys ****ing with us...........
................
To any ungrateful serfs out there reading this, GET BACK TO WORK YA FILTHY TAKERS! Now that everybody’s all vaccinated n’ shit, America’s job creators really have to insist you report back to the galleys, where your starvation wages will probably trickle down, provided you’re quiet and obedient. Seriously, the job market tilted ever-so-slightly in favor of labor for all of twelve seconds before the entire GOP freaked the **** out, cutting off pandemic-era unemployment benefits wherever they could, but hey, stay mad about potato toy genitals, non-college whites! That’s the REAL fight!..........
............
It’s becoming more and more difficult to refrain from kink-shaming Rand Paul over his penchant for mortifying public clashes with Dr. Anthony Fauci. The Senate’s Fakest Doctor accused America’s Handsomest Epidemiologist of lovingly spooning Chinese scientists in Wuhan while they painstakingly crafted COVID-19 by hand, because, well, because he’s a ****ing idiot, I suppose. I’ve tried to avoid the whole “GOLLY YOU CAN SURE SEE WHY PEOPLE WANT TO PUNCH RAND PAUL” gag over the years because it’s low-hanging fruit but I mean COME ON...........
...........
Well, Wayne LaPierre’s scheme to sneak the cancer upon American society known as the National Rifle Association out of New York (and legal jeopardy) under the cover of bankruptcy has officially failed, which I suppose momentarily takes a bit of the sting out of his more successful life’s work: drenching the nation in blood and grief for the sake of his own personal enrichment. Wayne’s comeuppance was near the top of the list I sent to Santa last Xmas, and I didn’t get the Pokémon cards, so I’m cautiously optimistic here.........
..........
Word on the street is, Skidmark Jr.’s now-ex-wife ordered a little somethin’ somethin’ off the Secret Service’s secret menu, nudge nudge, wink wink. One nice thing about moving on from a scion of the Turd Family Robinshart is literally anyone else must seem like an almost otherworldly upgrade. “What I love most about you, dearest, is the way I never have to vacuum cocaine out of your shitty, shitty beard while you’re passed out on the bathroom floor.”........
..........
Michigan state Rep. Matt Maddock, quite the starry-eyed little goose-stepper, has a dream, y’all! A dream of a world where Matt Maddock gets to wield the awesome power of the state to grind all those uppity so-called “fact-checkers” to dust beneath his shiny bootheel. Nothing to see here, just a known liar trying to legislate objective reality out of existence. Truly, the states are the laboratories of fascism.

Ron DeSantis vowed to pardon every Floridian who violated local coronavirus health mandates, because hey, is senselessly, selfishly spreading disease and death through your community really a crime? Definitely a good, healthy sign for American democracy, that every ambition-crazed Republican with an eye towards inheriting Cult45’s High Priesthood views “abusing power to elevate members of the tribe beyond the reach of justice” as an essential aspect of the requisite Trump impersonation act.........
...........
Well, Liz Cheney has indeed been sent to live on a farm upstate, where at least she’ll have plenty of room to run around and shoot her daddy’s hunting buddies in the face. As expected, soulless opportunist Elise Stefanik oozed into Cheney’s old job, all too happy to execute the position’s recently revised duties: Just Lie, Baby. Lie big, lie loud, lie every single time you open your lying mouth.

Oh, and kiss ass. Suckle those saggy, withered, no-doubt-spray-tanned loser cheeks, Elise. Greatness waits just around the corner. Surely........
........
Rid at last of Liz’s pesky truth-telling, Kevin McCarthy’s Kraven Kreep Kaucus celebrated with some more Public Nazi Shit, desecrating a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing with their vile movement’s trademark venomous gaslighting, peppering the Big Lie with ineptly fabricated minutiae, like a bloviating uncle trying to sell you his fish story, only instead of an enormous, nigh-legendary trout, it was America’s two-centuries-and-change-old democracy that barely got away.

Fashy dentist Paul Gosar whined that law enforcement is “harassing” the “peaceful patriots” who erected a gallows in front of the Capitol with the loudly-proclaimed intention of lynching the sitting Vice President. Jody Hice, who dreams of replacing Brad Raffensperger as Georgia’s secretary of state so his increasingly authoritarian party can stop worrying about silly shit like “the will of the electorate,” insisted it was unfair to blame the poor, maligned Trumpist mob for the wackily coincidental death from natural causes of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who yes, okay, was the recipient of a chemical weapons attack perpetrated by members of an insurrectionist horde filled with known white nationalists, but NATURAL CAUSES is the point, on the off chance anyone believes any of this horseshit.

Still, I think Georgia’s Andrew Clyde takes the meth-laced cake with his claim that the Capitol Riot was nothing more than a “normal tourist visit.” Perhaps Clyde’s favorite travel agent specializes in vacations where you journey to exotic locales and assault the local constabulary with chemical sprays and blunt weaponry, or perhaps he’s a lying sack of monkey crap working diligently to destroy the American government from within; either way, **** him with the entire Arms and Armor exhibit at the Met.

The overarching point here seems to be that the white boy terrorists are the Real Victims Here™️, and that insisting upon enforcing the fat stack of laws they broke is, in fact, persecution. It’s all quite silly, even laughable, until you remember it’s part of a coordinated strategy between right-wing media and elected officials to normalize and provoke violence as a viable political tactic to keep an unpopular minoritarian movement in power.

The terrorists themselves agree with the victimhood diagnosis, of course. Some loser Proud Boy (but I repeat myself) angrily denounced the Hemorrhoid Emperor for abandoning his dipshit cannon fodder, excuse me, ‘most faithful supporters’ “on the battlefield bloody and alone.” Son, if, after everything that’s been written about Donald John Trump over the last half-decade, you still somehow expect, of all things, LOYALTY from the guy, prison is the safest place for you; you’d never make it out here in the real world, with all its tricksy con men and pointy corners.............
...........
A former staffer is suing Republican Congressdolt Doug Lamborn for refusing to follow COVID-19 safety protocols, even after an outbreak in his office. Lamborn thought the whole thing was a “hoax,” y’see, and slept in the office during its “coronavirus playground” phase, even helping his deadbeat kid save a few bucks on rent by bunking up in a Capitol basement storage space. Taxpayers have to foot the bill to house your offspring AND your highly communicable disease? Not cool, Doug..........
............
If you’re wondering, as any rational being would, just who the **** elects these used-chewing-gum-from-beneath-the-seats-at-the-bowling-alley-brained shitweasels to Congress in the first place, I imagine we could learn quite a bit from the enthusiastic gas hoarder class that’s sprung up in the aftermath of a ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline. Dispatch a battalion of New York Times reporters to Appalachia’s many diners; the dudes you want to talk to can be identified by their jealously guarded plastic bags filled with gasoline.

...not to invoke the Fall of Rome or anything, but it’s possible the can-do American spirit has become terminally diluted with opioids, disinformation, and Trump Vodka.......
........
But yeah, It with a capital I is still Happening Here, all around us, and I guess we all get to just...live with that? Accept it as the price of living in the United States of America now? Hope that the coalition that elected Biden doesn’t allow sweet, soothing normalcy to lull the populace into complacency, allowing the very worst scum****s humanity has to offer to drag the nation down the dark and violent path to fascist white nationalism in 2022 and beyond? Fun stuff to ponder, no?*

And why? Republicans, why the heck are you lashing yourselves ever more tightly to that deposed, indeed decomposing Nazi clown? Like all his ventures, from his casinos to his airline to his presidency, the Velveeta Vulgarian’s attempt to rebuild his social media platform has proven a humiliating failure. He waddles pathetically around Marm-a-Lago, crashing parties like that creepy old guy who shows up at the karaoke bar every damn night to sing the same ****ing Meat Loaf song and hit on women his daughter's age. Outside of Lindsey Graham’s wet dreams, the guy wields no actual power. Maybe cut him loose before you collaborating doofuses start a second civil war?........
.........
Even some Republicans are becoming appalled at the gaggle of drooling assclowns conducting the “election audit” in Arizona. Somebody thankfully put the kibosh on the idea of letting these bamboo fiber detectives go door-to-door,harassing voters in their homes, but it seems this idiot subplot will run another few weeks at least. Sigh.......
...........
Seems the Heritage Foundation has been helpfully writing state-level Republicans’ racist voter suppression laws for them, a clever division of labor in a movement where elected officials are chosen primarily for their ability to spew bigoted gibberish at the easily misled. Oh, and speaking of:

Without any silly committee assignments clogging up her calendar, Marjorie Taylor Greene is free to roam the halls of Congress, smearing feces on the walls and belching up hate-filled inanities at unsuspecting passerby. Bumping into Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is always a special treat for the maggots devouring Marjorie’s brain, of course.

It’s clear this maniac can’t peacefully co-exist with anyone, (outside of child rapists) so it’s time to start considering folks’ safety. Maybe we can find a nice patch of land outside town, she can build herself a cozy little gingerbread house and lure Turning Point USA interns to their doom.........
............
By the way, Matt Gaetz’s creepy sex-trafficking pal Joel Greenberg officially entered into his plea agreement with th’feds,and it seems Joel has quite the tale to tell, but make note that neither Matty Pays-for-Sex nor the Vainglorious MTG have received anything like the Liz Cheney treatment, because it’s not as though they’ve done anything truly reprehensible, like telling the truth, or suggesting, “hey, why don’t we NOT be Nazis?”......
...............
Seems that back during the interminable days of the Turd Reich, the goon squad over at Project Veritas teamed up with Erik Prince and a foreign spy in a sad, failed attempt to run a honeypot op on ol’ H.R. McMaster, cuz he called their Turlord a massive ****ing idiot, which was taken as proof that the Deep State had a firm grasp of the obvious. Dear lord. Everything is so stupid. I say bring on the dang Visigoths, this culture could use a good decline and fall......
.......
Lordy, that was some week. If I missed anything, I apologize; I’ve been packing for a trip to an out-of-town wedding this weekend, and between that and my shedding proteins, my quarantine brain has been downright overwhelmed. Stay safe out there, Resisters!
..........

Did Marjorie Taylor Greene and her husband commit tax fraud in Georgia? Sure looks like it
Jessica Sutherland

Another day, another story that confirms what we all know: Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has no business in Congress. This week alone, the freshman conspiracy theorist made headlines for chasing after and screaming at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Capitol, and again after her aide, Nick Dyer, accosted Rep. Eric Swalwell on the House floor, and then again, after an extremely disturbing video showed Greene (R-Karens) and friends harassing the door (yes, a door) of Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional office back in 2019.

The old video, of course, was as attention-seeking as anything else Greene does today. The not-quite 47-year-old gym owner feeds on attention. Stripped of every committee assignment by her peers, the easily distracted Greene is bored, with lots of free time on her hands. She may believe the nonsense she spews in her desperation to remain in the public eye, but it’s just as likely that she doesn’t. Either way, she works hard to ensure that the average person watching her antics despises her. Looking back at her life, this may be her greatest success.

Admittedly, spreading conspiracy theories, worshipping Donald Trump, and yelling at closed doors may not be particularly great choices, or actions one would expect from a member of Congress. They’re also not illegal acts.

Tax fraud, however, is very much illegal. Atlanta investigative reporter Justin Gray gave the reviled Georgia representative her worst headline of the week when he revealed Friday that Greene and her husband Perry have been double-dipping in Georgia’s tax breaks since at least 2020.

..........
For anyone who doesn’t know much of Greene’s origin story, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) offers an extensive chronicling of the belligerent blonde’s journey to Congress. It’s worth a read.
Greene is a construction heiress turned Crossfit competitor and conservative vlogger who only found her way to the House after jurisdiction hopping. As the AJC notes, Greene attempted to rewrite her biography as she pursued a seat, any seat, in Congress, claiming that she’s “spent the past two decades running my business alongside my husband.”

Taylor Commercial’s website does not support this depiction of her role.
The site has been offline for “scheduled maintenance” in recent months, but Marjorie Greene has no significant presence on the company’s web pages collected over the past 20 years by the Internet Archive site’s Wayback Machine.
She is not listed with other executives on the company’s leadership pages. Greene is not featured in the archived pages where her father and husband are the central actors in the company’s story.

From “the middle of 2007 to 2010,” the AJC reports that Greene was listed as the chief financial officer for the company her daddy built, a company that built much of its wealth by snatching up government contracts for low-income housing. That’s right—despite the conspiracy theorist’s constant rage against “socialist Democrats” and government safety net programs, she and her family saw fit to make millions from them.

But by 2011, she was no longer listed at CFO. Greene became obsessed with Crossfit that same year. With her apparently nominal efforts to sustain her daddy’s business behind her, the tiny fanatic competed in Crossfit competitions. She opened her own Crossfit gym in 2013, even admitting she had no business experience.

By 2017, the AJC reports, the zealot had lost her passion for the cultish fitness craze, and abandoned her gym behind her as she focused on politics under the Donald Trump regime, joining Twitter and doing really fun stuff like visiting the nation’s capital to chase a teenager who’d just survived a high school massacre and screaming at AOC’s door.

By early 2019, it seemed that the aimless heiress had decided upon her next hobby: running for Congress. From all appearances, it seems that her college sweetheart hubby—who does appear to actually run the construction business—was willing to help Greene fudge a few details to help her get on the ballot.

In May 2019, Taylor Commercial amended its state registration papers to again include Greene as an officer, listing her as secretary of the company.
Two weeks later, Greene announced her candidacy for Congress in the Sixth District, and her profile as a business owner of her family’s construction company was central to the campaign’s rollout.

By December 2019, Greene had left her Sixth District campaign behind, and in 2020, the couple, who own a home in Fulton County, bought a $610,000 home in the 14th District that ultimately elected her. That very Floyd County, Georgia, home brings us to the alleged tax fraud (finally)!

A Channel 2 Action News investigation has found that Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and her husband have two active homestead exemptions, which is against Georgia law.
A homestead exemption is a big tax break any Georgia homeowner is entitled to for their primary residence. It is against the law to file for more than one.

Yet that’s exactly what the Greenes did.

Through open records requests, Channel 2 Action News pulled the Greenes’ homestead exemption applications in both Fulton and Floyd counties.
In the Floyd county application, Greene’s husband left blank the line that asked if they had another active exemption on any property.
But Fulton County tax officials confirm to (investigative reporter Justin) Gray that Greene never stopped getting the tax break on the Fulton property.

Details on this illegal double-dip are still emerging as both Floyd and Fulton county officials dig in, but Greene and her handlers found themselves at a loss when asked about it. In a statement raging against WSB-TV for doing journalism, Greene’s office reduced the fraud to “paperwork, which is being taken care of.” That’s basically an admission of guilt.

Greene’s statement also declared her to be a “proud resident” of her current district, before lashing out at reporter Justin Gray with words that would have found themselves at home on the Twitter page of Greene’s messiah, Donald Trump … if he was allowed to have one.

“Justin Gray needs to mind his own business instead of launching yet another pathetic attempt to smear me and my family.”

Gray reports that the penalty for the Greenes’ alleged crime would amount to about $12,000, or twice the couple’s tax bill.

The Greenes are allegedly millionaires, with much of their wealth generated by the very government contracts the missus loves to complain about. A six grand tax dodge seems so utterly unworthy of the risk, particularly since Greene was already running for office at the time. Greene loaned nearly a million dollars to her campaign, after all; $6,000 seems so … insignificant.

Is tax fraud enough to compel the removal of Greene from Congress, once and for all? Not likely. But it’s just another reminder of how very unfit she is for public office. As it is, Greene seems to have already moved on from her meager duties in the House, instead touring the nation spewing bile and “America First” nonsense to frothy crowds who believe Donald Trump is still our secret president. And she’s doing it with another of the more reviled members of Congress: Matt Gaetz of Florida, who is currently under investigation for sex trafficking.

What. A. Pair.

Lin Wood Loses Race for SC GOP Chair. Claims the Election Was Rigged. And Goes Down Ranting.
TheCriticalMind

Long-time Atlanta lawyer, leading conspiracy theorist, and prominent ‘Trump won’ election-denier, Lin Wood, ran for the Chair of the South Carolina Republican Party. In a four-way race, he was drubbed by the incumbent, Drew McKissick. It wasn’t close. Drew won with 67% of the vote, while ‘Lin for the Win’ lost with 28%.

However, while Drew’s victory was convincing, Lin did win more than one in four votes — despite being a Georgia boy — and running against the man who steered the SC GOP to a successful 2020 campaign. (Trump won the state. Lindsey Graham easily retained his Senate seat. And the GOP picked off a Democratic House incumbent.)

Further hindering Wood was Trump’s three-time endorsement of McKissick — although Wood claimed that he was really Trump’s candidate. Which is not unexpected. As QAnon-addled Wood has a bizarre history of claiming things for which there is no evidence.

And this disregard for the facts, truth, and common sense apparently appeals to the 28% who are committed to voting for the man most likely to be committed. And on that score, Wood is by far the leading candidate.

Because McKissick is not absolutist in his belief that Trump won the election — he accepts Biden won, but has questions about the process — Wood has him pegged as a RINO. And accused him of being glad that Joey ‘Bribes’ Biden occupies the White House.

That Trump is still President is the touchstone of Wood’s philosophy. So much so that, on April 28th 2021, he published on ‘Telegram’ a picture of him ‘discovering’ Trump still at work in the Oval Office. (The picture was, of course, an old one.)

On January 25th 2021, Wood told the ‘Politically Correct Radio Show’ that:

"I believe, without having definitive proof, that the military is in charge of our country, and I believe they are in charge of our country because Joe Biden is an illegal president. And I believe the military has evidence that establishes that fact."

He was still massaging his Trump/military fantasy as recently as two days ago. On the campaign trail he told a devoted audience

"He won the election. Donald J. Trump is still the guy the military will call for the code if they need a first strike. Joe Biden is not the president of the United States.”

He saw a divine purpose to Trump’s apparent defeat. Saying it was the only way God could expose the problems in the election system which "would have never been fixed."

"This is about God. God is getting ready to clean up this world and he's got a lot of cleaning up to do in America. So we all want Trump to come back, yes, because some things are going to have to happen."
"My own personal belief is he signed the insurrection act. Nobody knows. He's not going to tell anybody. I think the military is prepared to act if we have a foreign threat or an internal threat that can't be handled by the police or National Guard. And we're going to allow what appears to be continuity of government… because he's cleaning things up."

Wood picks from a large menu when it comes to conspiracy theories. We are all familiar with his election rants and meritless law suits. But there’s more. Well-known as an absolute advocate of QAnon’s main thrust — that a cabal of Democratic/Hollywood pedophiles is sex-traficking kids and harvesting their glandular secretions — Wood has pointed at Chief Justice John Roberts as part of the plot. And then iced the cake by accusing him of foreknowledge of Justice Antonin Scalia’s demise.

As he tweeted at Roberts, when he still had Twitter privileges:

“You are recorded discussing Justice Scalia’s successor before date of his sudden death. How did you know Scalia was going to die?
Are you a member of any club or cabal requiring minor children as initiation fee?”

There’s more:

My information from reliable source is that Roberts arranged an illegal adoption of two young children from Wales through Jeffrey Epstein. I think we can all agree that Epstein knows pedophilia.”
Adding,
“If only Jeffrey Epstein was still alive . . . Wouldn’t that be something?”

Not done, he finished by arguing that the lack of a defamation suit from Roberts meant his unfounded accusations were on the mark.

Later, after he engendered ridicule, he returned to Twitter to double down.

"I am fully aware of the onslaught of attacks being made against me based on my revelations about Chief Justice John Roberts. Before attacking me, maybe fair-minded people would first ask Roberts to tell the truth."
"Or ask Jeffrey Epstein. He is alive."

Epstein alive?

But let’s get back to South Carolina. Wood, like his idol, is sure he won. Although, unlike the last guy, he also congratulates the nominal winner. On Telegram, he offered:

“Congratulations to Drew “Biden Won” McKissick. Drew won the delegates in an establishment created election.
I won We The People. Drew will learn in time that ALL power belongs to We The People.
One door closes. Another door opens.

The door that should open for Wood is the entrance to a psychiatric ward. The only question is whether he is in denial — in his heart, he knows he’s a loon and can’t face the truth. Or if he suffers ‘anosognosia’. A condition arising from organic brain damage — a stroke, Impairment of executive functions due to damage to the parietal lobe, Alzheimer’s, or some other dementia — that blinds the sufferer to their own disease.

A casual survey of contemporary American politics makes you wonder of whom else we should ask the question.

CRIME OF THE CENTURY? Rage-a-Holic Trump Lashes Out at GOP, Fox News, and Newsmax
News Corpse

It's been six months since the 2020 presidential election was won decisively by Joe Biden. It's been four months since Biden was inaugurated. And yet, the "Big Lie" that the election was "stolen" and/or "rigged" by a cabal of thousands of conspirators continues to eat away at Donald Trump. It is, according to Trump "The Crime of the Century!"

Never mind that this cabal would have to include participants from both the Democratic and Republican parties, both of whom control the fifty states that have certified the voting results. And multiple nations would also have to be among the anti-Trump colluders, including Venezuela, Ukraine, and Germany. Sixty judges, many of whom were appointed by Trump, and the Supreme Court as well, are, in Trump's diseased mind, all out to deny him a second term as president.


And on it goes. On Saturday morning Trump posted a series of comments on his laughably lame new blog (which was down for most of the morning). These bug-eyed outbursts speak for themselves as to the mental deterioration of the Former Guy. It went something like this...

"As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!"

This is a "crime" that has no evidence whatsoever to prove that it was committed. Dozens of courts dismissed it as unsupported, frivolous, and totally lacking legal foundation.

"The 2020 Presidential Election was, by far, the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country. The good news is, the American people get it and the truth is rapidly coming out! Had Mike Pence had the courage to send the Electoral College vote back to states for recertification, and had Mitch McConnell fought for us instead of being the weak and pathetic leader he is, we would right now have a Republican President who would be VETOING the horrific Socialistic Bills that are rapidly going through Congress."

Trump is actually correct that "the American people get it." By significant majorities (62%), voters believe that the election was free and fair. Although gullible Republicans continue to buy the Big Lie myth. Despite that, Trump is still mad at Mike Pence and Mitch McConnell for not finding a way to violate the law and declare Trump president-for-life.

"Fox News is afraid to cover it—there is rarely a mention. Likewise, Newsmax has been virtually silent on this subject because they are intimidated by threats of lawsuits. One America News (OAN), one of the fastest growing networks on television, and the “hottest”, is doing a magnificent job of exposing the massive fraud that took place. The story is only getting bigger and at some point it will be impossible for the weak and/or corrupt media not to cover. Thank you to OAN and other brave American Patriots. It is all happening quickly!"

In addition to the weaklings that Trump has branded as traitors, he is also perturbed at his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) and the even more sycophantic Newsmax. But there is good reason to be concerned about lawsuits considering that Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic have both filed defamation suits against Fox News and Newsmax. However, OAN is hardly a fast growing network. It has so few viewers that it isn't even tracked in the Nielsen ratings.

Trump's persistence in continuing his futile war on democracy is only making him and the GOP look ever more delusional. Which wasn't that difficult to begin with. The House Republican minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, told Sean Hannity this week that “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election." Someone should introduce McCarthy to Trump. Their shared inability to comprehend reality might make them perfect match.

A Space Force lieutenant colonel has been removed from his command after appearing on a conservative podcast criticizing the United States military.

Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier joined The Steve Gruber show to discuss his new book, "Irresistible Revolution: Marxism's Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military," which alleges that Marxist ideologies are becoming widespread within the armed forces. He expounded on those concerns in the podcast.

"Since taking command as a commander about 10 months ago, I saw what I consider fundamentally incompatible and competing narratives of what America was, is and should be," Lohmeier said. "That wasn't just prolific in social media, or throughout the country during this past year, but it was spreading throughout the United States military. And I had recognized those narratives as being Marxist in nature."

When pressed on what exactly he meant, Lohmeier decried the New York Times 1619 Project, a historical look at how slavery formed America's institutions, as "anti-American."

"It teaches intensive teaching that I heard at my base -- that at the time the country ratified the United States Constitution, it codified White supremacy as the law of the land," Lohmeier said. "If you want to disagree with that, then you start (being) labeled all manner of things including racist."

Lohmeier did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

"Lt. Gen. Stephen Whiting, Space Operations Command commander, relieved Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier of command of the 11th Space Warning Squadron, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, May 14, due to loss of trust and confidence in his ability to lead," a Defense Department official told CNN. "This decision was based on public comments made by Lt. Col. Lohmeier in a recent podcast. Lt. Gen. Whiting has initiated a Command Directed Investigation (CDI) on whether these comments constituted prohibited partisan political activity."


Another defense official said the investigation would also look at all elements of rules and policy by which the book was published. It is not clear whether Lohmeier consulted his chain of command before publishing. A blurb about the book on Amazon described it as a "timely and bold contribution from an active-duty Space Force lieutenant colonel who sees the impact of a new-Marxist agenda at the ground level within our armed forces."

House GOP leaders join Hannity to genuflect to the former guy, praise his 'energy'
Aldous J Pennyfarthing

ScreenShot2021-05-15at10.14.37AM.png


The leaders of the Insurrection Caucus (aka House Republicans) appeared on Sean Hannity’s Kavalcade of Kraven Klowns last night after ousting Rep. Liz Cheney from her leadership position. Aware that the Eye of Sour-Don was likely watching, Obergruppenführer Kevin McCarthy made certain to lather up Former’s balls with the fevered alacrity of a germaphobic truck stop glory hole attendant.

Knowing that the summum bonum of the modern-day Republican Party is to please Donald Trump at every possible opportunity, McCarthy was sure to stack the bullshit high and wide.

And since the conventional wisdom in Bizarro World these days is that Joe Biden’s health status ranges anywhere from long-dead to moderately comatose, Hannity figured he’d tee House Minority Leader McCarthy up, with a leading question about Biden’s health and mental acuity.
........

It went like this:



Okay, first of all, McCarthy’s and Elise Stefanik’s smiles are haunting me, because I know I’ve seen them somewhere before. They’re just … so … famil …

Oh, yeah:



Secondly, maybe someone who thought it was a good idea to brag about a test they only administer to people showing early signs of dementia should think about getting a full eight hours of sleep a night. Just a thought.

Finally, Hannity’s deeply held hope that Joe Biden will eventually be found at 4 a.m. on a random Wednesday playing with a dead raccoon on Abe’s lap at the Lincoln Memorial prompts him to ask absurd leading questions about our president. And since anyone can see Biden is clearly not senile or lacking in focus or energy, McCarthy couldn’t even confect a decent lie about it. But he did the next best thing: Pretend that Donald Trump, who at this point is 90% chicken skin and Adderall by volume, has far more vigor than Biden could ever hope to muster. (Erm, just because someone screams for a Diet Coke 22 times a day doesn’t mean they have “energy,” and it certainly doesn’t show that said energy is being put to productive use.)

I mean, all you have to do is read this New York Times exposé about Joe Biden working hard, demanding his people work hard, and taking his job seriously—a piece they somehow decided to preface with the headline “Beneath Joe Biden’s Folksy Demeanor, a Short Fuse and an Obsession With Details”—to know that the narrative Hannity and his ilk are trying to get us all to swallow is just a big, awkward horse pill of a placebo.


Check this:

But several people familiar with the president’s decision-making style said Mr. Biden was quick to cut off conversations. Three people who work closely with him said he even occasionally hangs up the phone on someone who he thinks is wasting his time. Most described Mr. Biden as having little patience for advisers who cannot field his many questions.
“You become so hyperprepared,” said Dylan Loewe, a former speechwriter for Mr. Biden. “‘I’ve got to answer every conceivable question he can come up with.’”

Oh, gawd, WHAT A ****ING NIGHTMARE! A president who strives to understand every facet of his job and demands his people come “hyperprepared”! Does that mean we’re done getting quack medical advice from our POTUS?

Of course, I read the Times’ entire “Biden is too deliberative” hit piece, but I could have just read this part and slept easy last night:

One item not on the daily agenda?
Watching hours of cable news. The television that Mr. Trump installed in the dining room next to the Oval Office is still there, but aides say it is rarely on during the day.

Yup. It takes a ton of energy to watch 10 hours of teevee a day—and even more to translate Brian Kilmeade’s blather into something reminiscent of English. Donald Trump is a real Energizer Bunny. If that reference is too old, substitute something more recent, like “Don Jr. Midnight Cocaine Rabbit.”

The Three Spooges also did their best to convince Hannity’s audience that the country is falling apart, now that Trump isn’t ****ing up the pandemic response anymore. The fact that we’re coming out of yet another ruinous Republican recession—made far worse by Trump’s small-to-no-government philosophy—appears lost on them. Instead, they chose to focus on a temporary blip in inflation, likely caused by pandemic-related supply bottlenecks, and a slowdown in oil pipeline shipments precipitated by a one-off ransomware attack that’s already been handled. Somehow, they forgot to mention the massive SolarWinds hack that occurred under Trump’s watch.

They also claimed that the CDC’s change in mask guidance was just a ploy to distract the country from all these “disasters.”

Okay, sure.

Here’s the entire interview, if you have the stomach for it:



Seriously, though. Those smiles are just creepy, right?
