I was hoping for better entertainment !!! …

The first televised debate between President Donald J. Trump and his opponent, former vice president Joe Biden, took place on Tuesday night, Sept. 29.

Each candidate was given two minutes to respond to a question. Then there could be an open-ended back and forth.  In typical formal debates, response time is also limited, but the two sides had agreed to this open-ended approach. Both candidates often talked over each other. Each interrupted the other, but President Trump was the more aggressive interrupter of the two.

Now , I usually await these debates with eager anticipation ( and watch the WHOLE thing  ) but I could only stomach an hour and 5 minutes of this one …

Both candidates were predominantly ignorant , showed no decorum expected from ‘ Statesmen ‘ and the moderator , seasoned ‘ newsman Chris Wallace had not only quickly presented his bias against President Trump , he lost control of the debate within minutes of its’ commencement …

And the you have the ‘ media take ‘ that follows …

I’ll just point out how the so called ‘ reporting ‘ afterward is inconsistent to what I witnessed live …

President Trump came on stage looking grouchy and tired.  Former vice president Biden came in his casual street persona, greeting the president by saying “man.” and sounding just plain spent !!! …

There were some exceptional low points from both sides and from the moderator.  Chris Wallace asked President Trump about his taxes, basing his question upon a story that had just appeared in the New York Times.

This is where Chris first shows his bias … He should have avoided issues that are completely for a different venue than a debate between two candidates vision for the direction of the country …

This was extremely irrelevant. What does the amount of money Trump paid in taxes have to do with his re-election or non-re-election ? Moreover, the question was based on a newspaper story that reviewed his taxes and found nothing illegal.  So what if his lawyers beat the system and found some good write-offs and deductions for him?  Isn’t that why people go to professionals to have their taxes completed?  Moreover, the Times article was based on information illegally obtained, since tax forms are confidential, and it is illegal for the government or anyone to share the information with a third party.  Wallace’s question was underwriting the legitimacy of the Times article, which the said article did not deserve.

If Wallace wants to go there with Trump , why not here with Biden ;

It’s well known that Biden pushed the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma, the Ukraine company on whose Board of Directors Hunter Biden sat, to drop the case or lose U.S. aid in the amount of $1 billion.  Then he also had the prosecutor fired.

Just note , Biden bragged about it in a television interview … GOTCHA !!! …

Biden ruthlessly blamed the president over and over again during the debate for events that had nothing to do with Trump’s judgment or behavior — namely, the COVID pandemic and the riots in many of our large, Democrat-controlled cities.  

The president did not create the virus and did nothing to bring it to our shores.  In fact, as he affirmed multiple times in the debate and on many previous occasions, he halted travel of non-Americans from China to the U.S. early on as news got about the apparently new and deadly disease.  Vice President Biden at that time called the president xenophobic, as did Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Trump attempted to make that point but couldn’t get a word in edgewise.

The action by the president vis-à-vis travel from China to the U.S. did more to prevent COVID deaths than any medical action that could have been taken, as he attempted to say.

Again , where was Wallace ? …

In summary , although this was a debate for the presidency of our country, it seemed more like a schoolyard argument between two aggressive personalities lacking a mature concern for policy … Hence my decision to pick up the remote , tune out the nonsense and retire for the evening …

This is from E. Jeffrey Ludwig , whom I agree with as he points this all out in his article … If you actually WATCHED the debate , roam around the internet and read the media takes on it … Start with the source above by clicking the link below for the rest of it …

Trump’s tax returns ? … I don’t GAF !!! …

For many politicians, so-called public “service” is a get-rich-quick scheme.

Let me just say for the record that I really don’t give a crap about President Trump’s tax returns. If you are using an accountant who doesn’t make full use of tax laws to ensure you pay the least possible amount in taxes, find a new accountant.

Trump’s tax returns matter to me about as much as a June Bug in July.

What bothers you more? The tax returns from a guy who didn’t spend his life in DC or how people who spend their lives in DC get so fabulously wealthy?

For many politicians, so-called public “service” is a get-rich-quick scheme.

Take Joe Biden. Dude has been in elected office for nearly a half century. And yet, according to his tax returns, Biden is a multi-millionaire.

As Julie Kelly pointed out last night on Twitter, in 2016, the Bidens earned $400K. But in 2017 and 2018, they made more than sixteen million dollars.

And that probably doesn’t include the tens of millions of dollars the Biden family has received through shady business deals in China, the Ukraine, and even Russia.

Then there’s Biden’s pal Barack Obama.

The Obamas left the White House and immediately inked a $60+ million dollar book deal. Then in 2018, they signed another multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

And while I do not begrudge the Obamas making oodles of money after leaving office, it does irritate the living crap out of me that we, the American taxpayers, are still financially supporting the fabulously wealthy Obamas.

Barack Obama receives an annual Presidential Pension (plus expenditures) paid for by us.

In fact, in 2018, the former President cost taxpayers $1,153,000.00.

Let me repeat that.

Taxpayers had to fork over one million, one hundred and fifty-three thousand dollars to multi-millionaire Barack Obama in 2018.

Now, the Presidential Pension is only $205,700 a year for life. So what in the name of sweet fancy Moses was the additional $947,300.00 for?

The Obamas bought a massive estate on Martha’s Vineyard. But we need to pay for their “expenditures” to the tune of $947,300.00?!

AYFKM ?! …

Little Johnny meets Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi was visiting a primary school in Tampa and visited a grade four class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.

The teacher asked Mrs. Pelosi if she would like to lead the discussion on the word ‘tragedy.’ So our illustrious Democrat asked the class for an example of a ‘tragedy’.

One little boy stood up and offered: “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy.”

“No,” said Pelosi , “that would be an accident.” 

A little girl raised her hand: “If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy.”

“I’m afraid not,” explained Pelosi .

 “That’s what we would call great loss.”

The room went silent. No other child volunteered. Pelosi searched the room.

“Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?”

Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher held her breath.

In a quiet voice he said: “If the plane carrying you was struck by a ‘friendly fire’ missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.”

“Fantastic!” exclaimed Pelosi , “That’s right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?”

“Well,” says Johnny, “It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn’t be a great loss … and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn’t be an accident either!”

The teacher left the room …

The Californication Democrap Party …

SB-145, first introduced in 2019 and known as the “California Sex Offender Dream Act,” was recently passed by the California state Legislature and signed into law by Democrat governor Gavin Newsom on Sept. 11.

The name of the act speaks volumes on it’s intent !!! …

The legislation, which has not been without controversy, significantly alters existing California law by giving judges the power to decide whether to declare someone a sex offender for having anal or oral sex with a minor …

This is where I immediately thought … ‘ What about Intercourse with a minor ?! … However , the next 2 paragraphs clarified it for me  ;

Under previous California law, a judge had discretion on whether to place someone on the sex offender registry in cases involving a young adult and a minor, but not when it involved anal or oral sex, as that distinction required an automatic registration …

This new legislation eliminates that and gives the Judiciary the authority to have the same discretion as it has now in cases of vaginal intercourse.  State senator Scott Weiner (D), lead sponsor of the bill, tweeted, “The bill ends discrimination against #LGBTQ young people on CA’s sex offender registry. It treats LGBTQ people exactly how straight people are now treated.”

And there ya have it ! … This is to cater to all the fuckups that don’t know who they are !!! …

Joke Of The Week

A nun walks into Mother Superior’s office and plunks down into a chair. She lets out a sigh heavy with frustration.Source :

‘What troubles you, Sister?’ asked the Mother Superior. ‘I thought this was the day you spent with your family.’

‘It was,’ sighed the Sister. ‘And I went to play golf with my brother. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ.’

‘I seem to recall that,’ the Mother Superior agreed. ‘So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?’

‘Far from it,’ snorted the Sister. ‘In fact, I even took the Lord’s name in vain today!’

Goodness, Sister!’ gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. ‘You must tell me all about it!’

‘Well, we were on the fifth tee…and this hole is a monster, Mother Superior 540 yard Par 5, with a nasty dog leg left and a hidden Green… and I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made. And it’s flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted… and it hits a bird in mid-flight!’

Oh my!’ commiserated the Mother. ‘How unfortunate! But surely that didn’t make you blaspheme, Sister ! …

‘No, that wasn’t it,’ admitted Sister. ‘While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!’

‘Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!’ sympathized the Mother

‘But I didn’t, Mother!’ sobbed the Sister. ‘And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!’

‘So that’s when you cursed,’ said the Mother with a knowing smile.

‘Nope, that wasn’t it either,’ cried the Sister, anguished, ‘because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 18 inches from the cup!’

Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest, fixed on the Sister with a baleful stare, and said…

‘You missed the fuckin’ putt, didn’t you ?

Another 9/11 is Unlikely … and That’s not Good News …

I’ve been sayin’ this since long before 911 !!! … The assholes know they wouldn’t last three days in a real war against western civilization … And I only give them the possibility of two or three day simply the the sheer numbers of the pagan cretins !!! … 

I’ll just up a few paragraphs after several opening ones …

The 9/11 attacks ended on the same day they began, but stealth jihad influence operations didn’t stop for a minute.  The suit-and-tie jihadists were back at work on September 12, September 13, and September 14, and have been busily pursuing their subversive aims ever since.  That’s approximately 7,300 days of subversive activity — and most of it has gone unnoticed.

We have, of course, heard of the more publicized incidences of stealth jihad such as the infiltration of Fort Hood Army Base by Major Nidal Hasan, and the similar penetration of Pensacola Naval Air Station by a lieutenant in the Saudi Air Force.  But how many remember, or have ever heard of, the purge of training materials used by the FBI at the behest of Muslim activist groups in 2011-2012?  The aim was to eliminate any material that was offensive to Islam.  Rather than be thought “Islamophobic,” the FBI, along with more than a dozen other security agencies, meekly complied with Muslim demands, and replaced effective programs with a see-no-Islam policy. 

Likewise, how many know about the Islamic influence operation on American universities?  According to a Clarion Project report, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar have poured billions of dollars into dozens of major American universities in recent years.  The result ? …  Many of America’s academic experts on Islam have developed a financial interest in pedaling the politically correct view of Islam …  

Meanwhile, students learn a whitewashed version of Islamic beliefs and history not unlike the Disneyfied version of communism they also acquire in college …

The picture perfect definition of ‘ STOOPID ‘ !!! …

The level of stupidity of this nonsense is so high I felt compelled to file it firstly in my ShitzUNgiggles category …

Found at

There’s stupid, there’s pig-stupid, and there’s Oregon.

That’s the astonishing picture we have here where a suspect, Domingo Lopez, Jr., 45, who had been arrested just 12 hours earlier for setting fires, got somehow let out and proceeded to commit to more arson, with the Antifa weapon of choice, the Molotov cocktail, as if that couldn’t be foreseen.  The second time around, he set six fires.

Who needs global warming with guys like this?

The big fail here was from the justice system, which let the known firebug, freshly caught in the act, out and about.  Obviously, there’s something going on with this.  How could anyone in authority be this stupid?

It’s sheer lunacy to let a caught-in-the-act arsonist out at a time of high fires and not guess he’ll go back to the same thing he was caught doing earlier.

Who came up with the idea of letting this freak out ? …
