Hit Dogs Holler

Looks like somebody heard President Joe Biden talking about him during his inaugural address.

Oh goodness! Did Joe Biden call Rand Paul a white supremacist or a racist or a liar or an every name in the book? How rude, if true!

What's that old expression? "A hit dog will holler"? Or "If your white hood fits, Rand"?

Yes, the senator who just had some problems with banning LYNCHING thinks he heard Joe Biden call him a white supremacist, racist liar in his inaugural speech.

So did the wingnuts on Newsmax:

TOM BASILE (HOST): [I]t was very dark.

It was no "American carnage," but go off.

BASILE: It was actually, you know, not unifying. It was actually quite divisive. It's very difficult to drive a unifying message when you're going to simultaneously talk about an overblown sense of white supremacy and systemic racism. And you lead a party that is driving cancel culture in America. You know, oftentimes when he was talking about unity I kept on thinking to myself, so does this apply to conservatives as well? Does this apply to pro-life people? Does this apply to people who've been cancelled at their jobs, at their universities, in the media, in their own lives because they believe in traditional American values, in more conservative values?

Joe Biden did intolerant disunifying cancel culture to white supremacists and racists! Can't we just compromise and say SOME white supremacism and racism are OK?

It wasn't just Newsmax and Rand, of course. Fox News was full of it.

Q Followers: 'Was It All A Psyop?' 'Is The Military President Now?' 'What Does It All Mean?'

Q is gone.

Well, technically Q has been gone since December 8, but given the fact that Joe Biden is president now, it would be awfully difficult to continue the ruse and resurface again. And those who have followed the conspiracy are now in flux. They're flooding their message boards and Telegram groups, begging for "hopium" — theories to help them believe that they haven't just wasted several years of their lives on a LARP, that it was all real all along and that "patriots are in control." They're trying to sort out "what it all means" for them going forward. They're crying out in anguish, trying to figure out how the "Satanic Pedophiles" won and why they were allowed to do so.

"Trump did nothing. The military did nothing the country was handed over to them and everyone watched."

Some are close to giving up. Some are saying they'll hold on forever. And some are feeling outright betrayed by Donald Trump, who they say encouraged them to believe in all of this nonsense.

They're not wrong about the latter. Trump had every opportunity to tell these people that this was all nonsense, but all he said was "I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate." He never discouraged them, because why would he discourage people from worshiping him? Even if they are a bunch of lunatics who think Tom freaking Hanks is running a cabal of Satanic pedophiles?

What Old Trash Did Biden Throw Out Once He Moved Into The White House?

President Joe Biden (bear with us, we'll eventually stop typing that so excitedly) made pretty good use of his first half-day on the job yesterday, taking a whole bunch of garbage policies from the previous administration out to the curb. Biden signed a whole bunch of executive orders to either undo actions taken by the president before him, or to take action against the pandemic that the prior administration hadn't bothered with. So let's take a look at the 15 EOs (and two directives to agencies) that Biden signed yesterday. No, he did not sign one to give you a pony. That's next week, be patient.

Almost all the items on his to-do list for the first day addressed one or more of the four crises Biden said would be the focus of his presidency: The pandemic and the related economic fallout, climate change, and racial justice, including the previous administration's war on immigration, all of which got worse under Donald Trump (we had to name him eventually).

Biden Team Slams Door On T---p Defense Holdovers, Will Clean This Sh*t Up Alone, Thanks.

Let's skip to the punchline first, shall we? President Biden just told Trump's (acting) Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller to GTFO. Invited him to hit the road, Jack. And also cautioned him not to let the doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya. To wit, he's not getting any office space during the transition, because Bye, Felicia!

"Given Mr. Miller's acting capacity in that role, as well as reduced staffing and occupation of the Pentagon and auxiliary offices during Covid-19, we deemed it appropriate not to extend that perk in this instance," a Biden transition official told CNN yesterday before the inauguration.

An outgoing Trump staffer bitched that, "Excuses aside, the American people see this break in a long tradition of accommodation, proper records management, continuity of government and good manners for what it is: the last petty act of this transition's intransigent party."

Look Which Birther-Dentist-Lawyer-Clownshow Has Crawled Out Of Woodwork For Trump Impeachment Suit!

It truly has been a blessed week!

She's BAAAAAAAAAACK! Your favorite birther-dentist-lawyer-Senate candidate-circus clown Orly Taitz wants in on some of that sweet, sweet frivolous lawsuit publicity, and so she's suing Chuck Schumer and Kamala Harris to prove that impeachment is UNLEGAL. Guess it was inevitable when the Blacks and Latinos for Trump filed their bogus suit — you know how our Orly feels about brown people getting something she doesn't have.

Taitz, best known for filing literally dozens of lawsuits challenging Obama's eligibility to run for president and demanding to see his long-form birth certificate, was saying that Hugo Chávez rigged the voting machines back in 2016 before it was even cool! She managed to get sanctioned to the tune of $20,000 for courtroom conduct the judge called "breathtaking in its arrogance and border[ing] on delusional." After which she appealed to the Supreme Court, and then sued demanding Justice Clarence Thomas's long-form signature!

Not to put too fine a point on it, but that bitch is cray.

David Brooks Has Starbursts For Biden, Will Kill Filibuster For Him And Jodie Foster

Brooks is a weird dude, even when he's sorta right.

David Brooks, the conservative New York Times columnist who likes to present himself as so centrist that he might have admonished the late David Border to knock it off with the wild partisanship, has a heavy punditcrush on Joe Biden, whom he genuinely believes could be the figure to bring balance to a hyper-polarized America. It's really kind of cute to watch Brooks fall all over himself for Biden, even as we suspect it can't be long until Biden eventually says something so insanely partisan — like maybe "We have to tax the super rich" — that he'll lose poor Brooksy. Who knows? As with virtually everything Brooks writes, there are even a couple of good ideas in the column. And as with virtually everything he writes, Brooks manages to just stun us with what he thinks are perfectly reasonable centrist opinions. Let's see why Brooks E's in Love, shall we?

Joe Biden Honors Unionbusters At NLRB By Terminating Their Employment

Bye Peter Robb! Bye Alice Stock! Auf wiedersehen goodbye!

I regret to announce that President Joe Biden has Violated Norms and failed at doing Unity by firing noted unionbuster Peter Robb from the National Labor Relations Board. Or, as noted rightwing troll factory The Federalist put it in a headline: "Violating Norms On Day One, Biden Axes Respected Labor Attorney."

President Joe Biden caved to the demands of labor unions and fired the National Labor Relations Board's top prosecutor on Wednesday, a move that many have labeled as "unprecedented."

While members of the NLRB general counsel usually serve four-year terms, shortly after his inauguration, Biden pressured attorney Peter Robb to resign from his position before his tenure at the independent agency expired. Robb refused to resign, criticizing the decision in a letter to the Biden administration, saying the pressure seemed partisan coming from an executive branch that continues to peddle a message of unity.

As we all recall, because we have not yet memory-holed Donald Trump (as pleasant as that sounds), one of the hallmarks of the Trump administration was "firing everybody he wanted, 10 year-term be damned." It was even his catch phrase! He also loved doing things like putting Betsy DeVos, a charter school advocate who did not much care for public schooling, in charge of the Department of Education, putting a climate change denier in charge of the EPA, and changing the purpose of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to help financial institutions screw consumers by doing things like hounding them about debt they no longer owe.

Oh, and putting people who were famously anti-labor and pro-management on the National Labor Relations Board. People like now-former NLRB General Counsel Peter Robb. Robb was initially asked to resign by the Biden administration but refused, writing an angry letter accusing Joe Biden of being bad at doing unity.
