·        The New York Post rightfully trolls the New York Times over the latter’s lying and dissembling over the Hunter Biden laptop until 17 months after the election.

….And what’s the Times going to do about the e-mail where Hunter complains to his daughter that his father takes half of his income from him? Or the one where a partner on other deals, Eric Schwerin, writes that he moves money between Hunter and Joe’s checking accounts?” What indeed? Don’t hold your breath.

·        Now that the New York Times has verified Hunter Biden’s laptop and essentially admitted that they knew it to be for real all along, the 50 Deep State “Intelligence Officials” who signed the letter calling it Russian disinformation don’t seem to be falling over themselves to admit their calumny and treasonous behavior. As Donald Trump has said, the President should be able to fire anyone in the Executive Branch. This is why. Nothing short of a major house-cleaning will fix this problem.

·        One person, who knew better, lied knowingly about the Hunter Biden Laptop Story. Yep, you guessed it.

·        Jen, Jen? Cat got your tongue? Psaki suddenly tight lipped about Hunter Biden’s emails after New York Times finally confirms. You may remember she parroted the “Russian disinformation” bulls**t at the time.

·        I know this will a smart move in front of the midterm elections. Right. Kamala Harris set to travel the country touting Biden’s ‘accomplishments.’ Hoo, boy! You mean she’s going to be bragging about high gas prices and record inflation? Not to mention his total fecklessness regarding foreign policy. Good luck, Kamala.

·        Americans tend to vastly overestimate the size of minority groups. We’ve commented on this before. For example, you’d assume from the amount of ink used by the press and the demonstrations by children at various colleges that LGBTQ dysphoria was much more prevalent than the actual 1-3% of the population. And yet, it is the rare university that doesn’t have a dean-level administrator for LGBTQ and Diversity issues.  Maybe they should fire those administrator and hire ones that cater to a larger demographic like left-handed students.

·        Aristos a la Lanterne! It’s coming, I believe. What will that metaphorical lighted match be, that sends ordinary citizens howling ‘Aristos a la Lanterne!’?

·        The rats are jumping off this sinking ship at a furious pace. Number nine just resigned from Kamala Harris’ staff.

·        Sorry, Joe and Jen. This won’t fly.

·        Even the Amish are getting on board.

·        As far as the debate goes about “transgender”, I’d say Abe Lincoln got it right, as usual. He once asked an audience how many legs a dog has if you count its tail as a leg. When they answered “five,” Lincoln told them that the answer was four. The fact that you called the tail a leg did not make it a leg. Courtesy of Thomas Sowell.
