Off the proverbial charts

Photo from The New York Times, making absurd comparisons.

I occasionally skim the websites of The New York Times and The Washington Post out of curiosity and to gauge the high levels of nincompoopery you encounter there.

At the very top of The Post‘s page today we are told “Domestic terror incidents surge, led by white supremacists and far right.” This conclusion, we’re informed, comes from “an analysis” done by — wait for it — The Washington Post itself! This is arrant nonsense, and one wonders if The Post knows of the ongoing Antifa riots? Over the weekend, for instance, Antifa torched a Portland federal building with immigration agents trapped inside.

There was zero mention of that by either The Post or The Times. Not a peep.

Let’s turn now to what inspired me to write what I am now writing. It may be the most hilariously outrageous leftist delusional nonsense of the year. Right there on The New York Times website, giving new meaning to the word chutzpah, is a piece headlined: Can Biden Be Our FDR? I swear you cannot make this stuff up.

High and dry

High at over 7,000 feet above sea level, which is permanent, and dry because it’s Springtime, the most miserable season of the year. When one says Springtime above the border one thinks of lovely days, romance, the occasional shower and flowers, perhaps the end of snow. When one says Springtime where I live, we think dust and heat.

And no A-C.

Easter Week (Semana Santa) starts soon, April 4. (Correction: Actually, it starts March 28.) It normally rivals the Day of the Dead for tourists and traffic in these parts but, like the Day of the Dead last November, most of the hubbub is canceled because of the Kung Flu hysteria. No massive artisan market on the downtown plaza and no parades in the evening. This pleases me because I am neither Christian nor a fan of bumper-to-bumper traffic.

It is bad for the local economy, however, which is already suffering due to the previously mentioned Kung Flu hysteria.

The video freezes in time a few seconds from this morning as I stood on the stone sidewalk and pointed the Canon up thataway. The photo below is my very favorite yard plant, the bottle-brush tree. I don’t know what the Mexicans call it, but that’s what it’s called up north. It’s seven or eight feet tall now, and still growing. I planted it years ago when it was just a little tyke. I wish I had planted one or two more. It’s lovely, and often in bloom. The hummingbirds love it.

Though Springtime is here, it still gets chilly overnight, and we still have the wintertime goose-down comforter on the king bed, but that will come off soon, the bedroom window will stay open, and the tower fan I bought just last year will keep us partially refreshed during the nights. There is no perfect world.

Hey, did you see “President” Biden bumble through his first press conference a few days ago? I predict that will be the first and final press conference. He’ll be drooling before long. It won’t be a good look. As Trump would say: Sad.

The hummers love this tree with all their hearts.

The swamp creature

That would be Kamala Harris, the vice president, a pol as corrupt as a Tammany Hall ward heeler. Just watch the first 20 seconds of the above video. The rest is interesting, but it’s the first 20 seconds that are appalling. And consider that this “woman of color” will soon be the “leader of the free world,” God help us.

I mention “woman of color” because it’s the sole reason she is where she is.

She was also criticized this week for climbing the stairs into her now-personal aircraft, Air Force Two, a Boeing 757, without saluting the honor guard, something all previous vice presidents have done, including Sleepy Joe.

Harris was so unpopular during the Democrat presidential debates that she washed out early on, and who can forget when Tulsi Gabbard ripped her a new one during that debate. You can watch that here. The ripping starts at the video’s 3:50 mark. See Kamala squirm.

One of the panelists on the show in the top video remarks that Harris is a “very unserious person.” Actually, she is serious, seriously bad, seriously dangerous.


Moving on now from that unserious person of color to another one, who is not only serious but one of the world’s most brilliant, Thomas Sowell, a political philosopher and economist with the Hoover Institution. The video is a montage of interview clips over recent years.

I share his pessimism about America and the Biden Administration or, as the White House recently instructed federal departments, the Biden-Harris Administration.

The current mess

I haven’t had much to say about American politics since last year’s election, just my March 1 post on how the election was stolen by the Democrat Socialists (How they did it), because I consider the United States a lost cause, circling the proverbial drain.

Along with much of Western Europe, all drowning in political correctness.

But let’s take a look now at the situation above the border. I hope those who’ll be hit hardest will be the nincompoops who voted against Trump because they simply don’t like his personality. I have to think that was the sole issue because whenever I ask someone why he dislikes Trump, I never get a reasonable answer, just meaningless epithets.

Never once anything concrete, and I’ve asked a lot. “Orange Man bad! Sexist! Racist! Homophobe! Liar!” Uh, got any actual examples? No?

So let’s look at the border where a new flood of Biden-loving illegals is pounding on the gates, and many have already leaped the hurdles. The border had been mostly pacified by Trump’s smart policies, which Sleepy Joe has reversed.

A nation that does not protect its borders in time ceases to be a nation, and a rich nation that does not protect its borders ceases to be a nation even faster.

Illegal-alien camp in Tijuana, awaiting the okay to cross the border. No covid tests required.

And let’s look at fuel prices, which have increased because Sleepy Joe reversed Trump’s policies that made America energy independent for the first time in decades.

Also, it’s been announced, tax increases, which are needed to fund Democrat Socialist “freebies,” are coming down the pike. Trump reduced taxes. And Sleepy Joe has already bombed Syria following the Trump years when the White House focused on domestic issues instead of uselessly and counterproductively killing foreigners.

Aside from leftist rioters in Democrat cities and hyperventilating news media flunkies, the Trump years were primarily tranquil.

Joe will not be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump was, five times. The best Biden can hope for is a Participation Trophy, but there’s no guarantee of even that.

His actual participation appears sketchy.

The White House releases Sleepy Joe’s daily schedule to the press. Unlike Trump’s accomplishment-filled days, Joe does pretty much nothing at all, literally. One or two brief events each day, and that’s about it. And when he does do something, he risks taking a tumble, falling on his ancient keister down the steps of Air Force One.

What is the focus of this administration? “Institutional racism.” Gender inequality. Long-gone pay gaps. Climate change. Transsexual rights. The entire silly agenda of Social Justice Warrior-ism. Soon Harris will be president, and that will worsen. And Nancy Pelosi will advance to just one heartbeat away from the presidency herself.

Did you know that?

If you get your “news” from The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC, NPR and their ilk, you are unaware of much of the above.

People who voted for Joe are ignoramuses, proving America to be a silly nation.
