Tuesday Newsfeed Quick Hits…

By  Maggie on 

I am not surprised the DC elites are strongly resembling “The Hunger Games” Capitol City elites. They already consider the rest of us as expendable ‘District’ unwashed (on all levels) and we are working for and providing for them via our tax dollars and growing assault on our freedoms/liberty. Besides, let’s not forget what Lady GaGa wore to sing at Joe’s Inauguration. She fancied herself to be some leftist “Katniss ‘Mockingjay’ Everdeen”…

But I digress by eight months.

Last night in New York City the uber elites in the entertainment industry and in the government industry showed up for The Met Gala, sans masks and ‘social distancing’, of course. Hell now, they are “sophisticated”, and you’re not, you know.

People are speculating how AOC paid for her ticket, or if some “rich” fan paid for it … or if the event throwers ‘comped’ her ticket. Either way, the frock she is tangle in is said to have cost somewhere around $30,000-35,000. I’ve not spent that much on clothing in over two years total…

Jessica Chasmar, Adam Shaw: AOC hit with ethics complaint over Met Gala attendance: American Accountability Foundation asks for probe into whether Ocasio-Cortez accepted ‘impermissible gift’

Edmund DeMarche: Actor Michael Rapaport calls out AOC over Met Gala dress: AOC has repeatedly called for increased taxes on the wealthiest Americans

K. Walker And Jeff Dunetz: HYPOCRITE! Maskless AOC Wears Tax The Rich Gown To $30,000 Per Ticket Met Gala

David Aaro: AOC’s Met Gala dress sparks Chick-fil-A comparisons: Ocasio-Cortez said lettering was about having conversation about ‘fairness and equity in our system’

And less tasty.


Twitchy: Working-class woman of color AOC is disgusted by lack of respect for her having ‘punctured the 4th wall of excess and spectacle’ at Met Gala

Ace: AOC Attends $30,000-per-Ticket Celebration of Plutocratic Excess Wearing a “Tax the Rich” Dress


Hmm … I wonder how she feels about trans-women invading women’s sports and completely obliterating the ‘equality’ achievements there?

Audrey Conklin: Reps. AOC, Carolyn Maloney miss part of $3.5T budget reconciliation markup to attend Met Gala: Both congresswomen serve on the House Financial Services Committee

Muzzling the old fart:

Joseph A. Wulfsohn: White House abruptly cuts feed of Biden mid-sentence as he asks question at wildfires briefing: Biden’s White House has history of preventing public from hearing him off the cuff

Jessica Chasmar: Senator demands to know ‘who is in charge’ at White House after Biden cut off mid-sentence: Republican senator calls Biden White House ‘a puppeteer act’

Jim Hoft: “Who Cuts Off – President’s Microphone?” – Senator Risch Grills Blinken During Senate Testimony – Blinken Lies and Says Americans Are Making This Up (VIDEO)

COVID is never-ending:

Dr. Marty Makary: Covid Confusion at the CDC: Decisions on boosters relied on data from Israel. Why isn’t the U.S. producing this research? … He’s not wrong. In fact, he’s damn right. Third world country Bangladesh has researched masks and mask usage, but the U.S. apparently didn’t and has yet to. Other countries have used the various ‘controversial’ treatments and drugs for treating their COVID patients, but the powers that be here in the U.S. have blocked those same drugs/treatments for our COVID sufferers. Why? Because our government would rather tally COVID cases and deaths.

Stacey Lennox: Why in the World Does the CDC Have to Rely on Data From Israel to Guide Our COVID-19 Response?

Joe Hoft: AUSSIES Are Now Ignoring Tyrannical Public ‘Health’ Mandates – Heading to Beautiful Bondi Beach … Given Australia’s draconian COVID measures of late, I’m just surprised they didn’t carpet-bomb the beaches.

Afghanistan ain’t over, you know:

TDS: Retreat From Afghanistan Makes Taliban Best Armed Islamist Group on Earth

Tim Hains: Lindsey Graham: “We Will Be Going Back Into Afghanistan”

Tim Hains: McCaul To Blinken: Is It True That Putin “Threatened” Biden To Keep US Spies Out Of Central Asia? … To which, Blinken stammered and dropped silent and then answered that he couldn’t answer that in that setting. I think he actually answered that question … in detail.

Tim Hains: Rep. Brian Mast Shows 13 Killed In Kabul: Families Deserve To Know “If The Intelligence Was Manipulated”

Zachary Evans: Blinken Dodges Sen. Rand Paul’s Question on Whether Afghanistan Drone Strike Targeted Aid Worker Instead of ISIS Bomber … Again, Blinken mumbles back about not being able to answer that question in “this setting”.

Emma Colton: VA teacher says encouraging behaviors like ‘following directions’ is white supremacy: Critics of the Virginia teacher’s TikTok are calling for him to be fired … And so, YES, by all means … use the blow dryer in the shower, iron clothes while wearing them, play in traffic and on RR tracks– HELL, run the RR flashing red lights and blocking bar and drive across those tracks with the train barreling down them — , take sleeping pills and pain meds and go ahead, operate motor vehicles and heavy equipment, and absolutely ‘try this at home’.

CNBC: Nearly half of young people worldwide say climate change anxiety is affecting their daily life … Oh, for the love of Gaia! Get a f**king life already! The only real ‘climate change’ is that over half a generation has turned into fatalistic neurotic snowflakes!

RIP, Norm. Thanks for the laughs, you magnificent bastard…

Julius Young: Norm Macdonald remembered by the comedy world: ‘He was in a complete league of his own’: Macdonald died Tuesday following a nine-year battle with cancer

“I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.” – Norm Macdonald
