In the decrepit, doddering Joe Biden era, the odor of decay, decadence and borrowed glory from the entitled ruling class is the order of the day based on what was seen at last night's Met Gala, "the party of the year" according to the New York Times. Nobody embodied that better than Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wore a custom-designed white evening gown graffitied with 'Tax the Rich' in red spray paint on the back of it, just perfect for an event brimming with the superrich. She knows they like that 'beat me, beat me' vibe. Here she is preening and showing it off for the cameras, every inch the center of attention:

More like "The Hunger Games". Nothing epitomizes decadent, insane overlords having extravagant balls quite like the sight of the vacuous AOC at the Met Gala. Tax the B**ch.

She makes $180,000 per year not to mention all of the under the table bribes and perks. Given the median income for a single person, that makes her The Rich. Tax yourself, b.!.tech.

I saw photos of this mashup in yesterdays NY Post. It made me want to vomit. How hypocritical are thes pieces of scum. People in this once great country are homeless and starving. Vets can't get the medical services they deserve and these uber rich, leftist, democrat scum shove this crap in your face. A ticket is $30,000, a table $250, 000. AOC should have choked on a canape! BTW, notice that they served collard greens and corn bread. How liberal is that!

After showing in a custom evening gown at the Met Gala extravaganza, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is starting to sound nervous After all, her appearance in the pricey one-of-a-kind evening gown at the celebrity-studded event didn't go over as she'd planned. Her gown had spray-painted on it the words "Tax the Rich" on its backside. It reeled in the charges of hypocrisy. I wrote about that here yesterday, and the fallout is continuing. So now we get this, justification after justification after justification, for her soirée eating the rarified food and dancing the dance, and drinking the stuff, and doing the air kisses with all the celebrity beautiful people.

The marked decline in support for President Biden and his administration nationally and in key swing states indicates that the Democratic Party could endure a blowout defeat in the 2022 midterm elections. Moreover, Biden is in a significantly weaker position now than both of his most recent Democratic predecessors — Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — at this point in their presidencies, which suggests that Democrats could suffer even more substantial losses in 2022 than the party did in 1994 and 2010.

EXCLUSIVE — The Taliban beheaded an Afghan soldier, then chanted praise to their leader while holding the severed head of their victim by his hair in a video posted in a private Taliban chat room. The 36-second video, which was obtained by the Washington Examiner, was posted a week ago. It’s unclear when it was made, but on Aug. 17, Taliban leaders promised amnesty for government workers and protection for women. Taliban fighters celebrate around the beheaded body of a former police chief. Screenshot “I would like to assure the international community, including the United States, that nobody will be harmed,” said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.

What's going on with the Los Angeles Times? Was it bad enough that the paper downplayed a racist assault on a leading California gubernatorial candidate, Larry Elder, where a white leftist wearing a gorilla mask hurled an egg at the head of Elder, a black man, expressing a common trope among racists who compare black people to apes? Recall that Roseanne Barr literally lost her popular television show for that one, after she compared White House advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape. Nooo, not at all to these practitioners of "journalism."

Joe Biden in his 2020 basement presidential campaign made a big deal about his quest of "unity" and the importance of taking the advice of "experts." That's now a joke. It got obvious last week when we learned he chased out two top Food and Drug Administration research scientists, both strict non-partisans (I checked), from their positions, in a string of such exits. White House interference, specifically from truth-challenged White House chief science advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, was what he meant by 'experts.' Now it gets worse. Turns out a whole host of unpaid Trump-appointed advisors on departmental advisory boards, with fixed three-year terms -- at Defense, Education,

So is butt-naked racism against the man who may become California's first black governor O.K. so long as a Democrat is doing it? Apparently so, based on how the Los Angeles Times is covering yesterday's egg-hurling incident. A leftist white woman in a gorilla mask, unsubtle as she could get, hurled an egg at the head of gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder in Venice, California, nearly hitting him, as did another leftist later as Elder was hustled off by his aides into an SUV. The Los Angeles Times headline, noted by reporter Ryan Saavedra, was incredible:

Is the Catholic Church finally showing some leadership? Sure looks like it, with this Washington Post op-ed by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone: Prominent politicians lost no time in reacting hyperbolically to the Supreme Court’s decision refusing to enjoin Texas’s new law banning abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat. President Biden announced a “whole-of-government effort” to find ways to overcome the Texas measure. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) denounced the Supreme Court’s refusal as a “cowardly, dark-of-night decision to uphold a flagrantly unconstitutional assault on women’s rights and health,” and promised new legal action: “This ban necessitates codifying Roe v. Wade” in federal law.

California voters overwhelmingly chose to keep Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in office in a recall election on Tuesday. Newsom was spared after a projection by the Associated Press showed that a majority of voters opted against recalling him. With 61 percent of the estimated vote in, early returns showed that 5.3 million voters supported keeping Newsom in office, while 2.5 million Californians voted in favor of his removal. The September 14 recall election was triggered after a petition to remove Newsom received more than 1.6 million verified signatures — a sign of Californians’ frustration

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Despite warnings the race would be close, California Gov. Gavin Newsom decisively defeated efforts to kick him out of office, a win the Democrat cast as an endorsement of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and his party’s liberal values. Newsom cruised to victory in the recall election Tuesday, boosted by healthy turnout among an overwhelmingly Democratic electorate, ensuring the nation’s most populous state will remain a laboratory for progressive policies. With an estimated two-thirds of ballots counted, the “no” response to the question of whether to recall Newsom was ahead by a 30-point margin.

Not only did California Gov.

What is certain is that he will consider it a signal to press the Blue State agenda that’s made California a miserable experience for so many.Recalling a Democratic governor in a state where roughly twice as many Democrats are registered to vote as Republicans was always going to be a nearly impossible task.

The headline stories today are large, and so is the background as these issues surface. Context becomes increasingly important as each aspect is reviewed. As you look at the stories, remember this context (emphasized as a reminder):(snip)Factually, President Trump’s strategic approach toward foreign threats and foreign intervention (through the use of geopolitical economic pressure) was a major paradigm shift that removed the Defense Department from a primary role, and placed them back into a more appropriate ‘contingency’ role when it came to foreign policy and national security. It was obvious from the outset of the Trump administration that the Pentagon did not like that position.
