|Just how old IS this guy?!|
I'm sorry to see the passing of Queen Elizabeth, although 96 years is a good run for anyone. While "The Royals" have never been of particular interest to me, I have great respect for the Queen's 70+ years of public service. Especially considering that Joe Biden hasn't put in a single day of public service in his entire career. Unless you want to count his spending billions of dollars on the newest (ahem) Covid "vaccines"...
That's right - the FDA has approved "emergency use" of a new Covid vaccine formulation that hasn't been tested on a single human being...and only eight mice. This from the same agency that said it was unsafe to even try Ivermectin for Covid because it had only been shown to be safe on millions of humans for decades.
As a bonus (click the link above for details and data), the new generation of vaccines is unlikely to prevent or even slow infection, transmission, or serious illness. But it will make billions for big pharma (which, entirely coincidentally, provides 75% of the funding for the FDA), make government look like it's doing something/anything, and continue to provide jobs for fewer than a dozen mice.
And is it just me, or are we having a weird national deja vu moment...
This week the Bidens welcomed The Obamas back to the White House for the unveiling of their official portraits. There was pomp, circumstance, and a strange scraping sound that turned out to be me scratching my bald head while asking "Didn't we do this years ago with completely different portraits?!"
And the answer is yes...yes we did. But apparently, we now have to allow the Obamas to return to the White House every 4 years or so to unveil new paintings of themselves while pretending the previous versions never happened. In much the same way I like to pretend that 8 years of the Obamas never happened.
FROM THE VAULT (Feb 14, 2018)
Oh, you just knew we had to share our take on the preposterous new portraits of Barry and Michelle. And we've got to admit that we're having a grand time watching effete Leftists struggling to explain why these alleged works of art are swoon-worthy.
Barry's is hilariously surreal and lacks only a unicorn to properly depict the self-obsessed fantasy world he lived in. Seriously, it practically screams "this man has no contact with reality."
We do, however, like the fact that the vines are already growing over his legs - giving us hope that he will eventually disappear entirely.
|Coming soon to a "choom gang" van near you.|
Michelle's portrait is just flat out, laughably hideous and deserves a non-traditional display.
|Bonus! You can chill your groceries with her cold glare!|
Although it wasn't our intent, we actually improved her wretched portrait by adding the colorful crayon illustrations. The actual painting looks like the work of a not-very-talented school kid who still got a C+ for "trying very, very hard."
The portrait is astonishingly amateurish, lifeless, and flat - although we actually agree with the artist's decision to give Michelle's painting no background. After all, what background did we ever get on the woman herself, other than that she had no pride in America until Obama elbowed his way into our national nightmares and, per her laughably self-centered university "thesis," that she just plain doesn't like white folks.
Perhaps it's just the influence of Valentine's Day, but we actually find our hearts warmed by these ghastly portraits...because they're exactly what the subjects deserved.
The Odummers...... Top of the pile narcissists.
The Obamas always remind me of that song by Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks:
How can I miss you if you won't go away?
Does anyone else see a big woodie in Michele's lap?
It's only fair that they should come out with a Covid "vaccine" that hasn't been tested on any humans, only animals. After all, isn't it the case that the earlier Covid "vaccines" have only been [and are still being -- the trials don't officially end 'til 2023] tested on humans, with no animal testing?
I have always been bothered by "Americans" who pay any attention at all to any "royalty" anywhere. However, Elizabeth II was a pretty good person from what I've seen. She was in the British military in some capacity during WWII and was photographed performing her duties. She deserves some respect for that. Her "royalty" aspect interests me not at all.
Barack Hussein has done pretty much nothing to earn any respect from me. "Michelle" has done even less. Gropey Joe isn't even in the running there.
As for vaccines, if the only way you can make your "vaccine" work is by re-defining the word "vaccine", you don't have a vaccine and I'm not taking it.
Three for three, Stilt.
Obama's portrait reminded me of this:
Perhaps the proposal to test new vaccines and drugs OM politicians and bureaucrats is a good idea. No matter what happens the country wins.
Awesome and worth the wait! I know you have to fight through depression - been there and I've been worried about you. Praying for you.
I still laugh whenever I see the “original official portraits” of these two. Barry’s new and improved portrait is miles ahead of the first one. Michelle’s portrait didn’t include the lobster roll she was fond of shoving into her racist maw - it must have been on a silver platter, just out of the artist’s view.
I read about the newest “vaccine” (rated “meh” by eight mice in PETA magazine!). I really have to stop being so surprised at what Big Pharma is doing and just operate under the assumption that everything they do is merely a money grab.
My condolences to the people of the Commonwealth on the loss of their beloved Queen; nothing but respect for Her Majesty. Any opposing view will wait for another day.
Stilt, I think you're back!
3 out of the park
Thank You Sir
Always good to see that you’re “back”......with your typical heavy dose of truth about good old Joe and Dr. “F”ie !
Question: How did America downward spiral to this quagmire?
God help America....and God save the King .
Wayne in Indiana
I am glad to see you are back.
You are needed in these absurd and dangerous times.
"Barry's is hilariously surreal and lacks only a unicorn to properly depict the self-obsessed fantasy world he lived in."
No, it should read: Barry's is hilariously surreal and lacks only a unicorn to properly depict the self-obsessed fantasy world he lives in.
Point to ponder though, with the Swamp so hell-bent on destroying the Trumps, will there even be an official portrait of he and the former First Lady. Especially after the Great Mar a Lago Panty raid? Bet an unveiling of such Presidential portrait would cause Lefty Lucy's head to explode.
The new vaccine being rushed out is IMHO, purely political; something to reassure the sheepeople.
But in this regard, I have a question that perhaps someone more well-versed in virology might answer. At the end of July, I was diagnosed with COVID, though a mild case. I am quite fine now, but I also assume from the COVID infection, I now have antibodies in my system. so if this is correct why do I or others need to be 'jabbed' again?
The Queen is dead, I blame Putin, Brexit, and the Covid Gang, long live the King!
Well they get the blame for everything now.
I commented on Obummer's portrait at the time:
About the "portraits:"
-They look pretty good for "paint by number" pictures.
-Mooshelle looks like she bought that dress a size too big (if that's possible,) and now she can't keep the shoulder straps up.
-The lack of backgrounds was intentional. It makes it easier to add your own. For instance, you could add a background from Star Wars to Mooshelle's portrait, something appropriate for a Wookie. On Barry's, you could add a garbage dump as the background, and title the portrait "Top Turd on the Ash Heap of History."
Sooo......approve a chemical concotion that has not done years of testing but dont approve the Dexcom5 G6 with Omnipod combo for Type 2 diabetics because? Defund them or fire all the "brass" and start over. They are compromised like just about every alphabet agency.
@Anon: I took your suggestion and gave Barry an appropos background:
The contrast between Queen Elizabeth and Obama/Biden/Fauci could not be more stark.
God Save The Queen!
As for Charlie Brown III....Meh.
Love the posts on this one! No way I could come up with any thing better. LOL
@TrickyRicky: Let's hope Charles III fares between than his previous two namesakes.
HEy Stil. Glad to see your continuing presence on this side of the dirt. Question: You okay with me linking you on GAB?
QE 2 was a class act. Time will tell if Charles 3 will continue in her footsteps.
Concerning the new O'Liar portraits, I think they were trying to show how hip and edgy they were with the first set of dartboards. Probably had second thoughts every time they visited the White House to give Joe his marching orders, and spotted the hideous paintings.
170 million taxpayer doses?! Methinks about 160 million of those will go unused, and only the total moonbats will consume the first 10 million. No doubt there will be press coverage of Joe the Groper getting a shot of saline solution. I know they are not going to inject me with that shit.
I remember that Star Trek episode, but can't remember the actor's name. Was it Frank Gorshin?
Well done! Now if only somebody would pull that flush lever...
Years ago, Mrs. Muenster and I visited a small village in England where her ancestors came from, Newton St. Loe I think. I nice lady who was a historian showed us around the town and where to find the family farm. She said that Prince Charles actually owned the village, and they all loved the man. Weird.
As for Moochelle's "artwork," will the taxpayers be saddled with the cost? Yeah.....I know.....it's a dumb question.
Yea! A new cartoon!
So now subjects in the commonwealth will finally get Charles the king. As he's spent the last decade or two jetting about the world lecturing everyone about "the climate crisis" and his subjects on the isle are facing a winter of unaffordable or unavailable heat (which are parts of their "green new deal" that were excluded from the glossy brochure), I'm wondering how that's going to play out. I don't think he'll be king for long.
Yea! A new shot. No thanks on that one. I haven't been sick in at least 3 years now. I got the original shot. I've been tested and have the antibodies, the gold standard of immunity. Most of the people in the hospital these days for COVID have already been vaccinated and boosted up the ying-yang, so clearly they have not been "vaccinated", at least by the traditional definition of the term. So now they have a new shot that they haven't bothered to study barely at all?
The Obamas: One of the few redeeming features of those two is that they hate Biden almost as much as we do.
Get back to where you once belong!
Stilt, great to see you taking that song to heart. Great column!
I always get excited when I receive the email about your posts. So glad to hear from you again.
"The Enterprise crew encounter Lokai (Lou Antonio) and Bele (Frank Gorshin), two Cheron males who despise each other. Both have skin that's black on one side and white on the other, but what differentiates them, and serves as the root of their hatred, is that Bele is black on the right side and white on the left side, while Lokai is is black on the left side and white on the ride side."
I have most all of the Star Trek shows...original, and EVERY spin-off.
(Not a Trekkie OR a robot)...
Great hearing from you again!
Yes! You are back and still great. The Covid toon is one of your best ever.
Well played, Stilt. Your single sentence on The Queen and Monarchy pretty much sums up the majority of Americans. The commentary on the third set of Obama Art was also spot on. I do believe you have at least a part of your groove back. Welcome back to the fray.
I do hope that the handlers of the Cadaver in Chief restrain him from sniffing the hair of the dead Queen.
This is a grim day, so I thought I'd post a most grim video. This as so dramatic and yet...it's a very reminder why the leaders we choose need to be ready to take the nation forward no matter what needs to be done...the Commander In Chief needs to be just that.
oh,yeah...LET'S GO, BRANDON!
@Gee M: On that day, I was in my office just 3 miles north of the Pentagon. Never forget or forgive. But at least on this day of commemoration, there is some comfort that Ayman al-Zawahiri too no longer walks on Earth.
@Readers- I greatly appreciate all the comments here and, once again, can't reply to each of them individually but I certainly savor them all individually. Regarding the blog, I think I'm still a long way away from a real "he's BACK!" moment, though it sure feels good from time to time to post something fun.
I'm doing okay-ish today (and it's a gorgeous day in Texas) although it's also sobering. It's the 21st anniversary of 9/11, which always rocks me, and tomorrow is the 6-month anniversary of losing Kathy, which seems impossible. There is an immediacy to both events which I don't expect to ever change.
@Stilton: Always remember these two phrases in times of trouble:
1) "This too shall pass."
2) "What would MacGyver do?"
Mr. Jarlsberg, your writing always makes me smile.
[Twice I made big errors...wish we had edit. Sorry]
Stilton: My thoughts are with you on Kathy's first Yartzeit...
Fish Out of Water ...
Amen...preaching to the choir, even though its a big one.
I was in Afghanistan in the 70's, right about the time the Watergate mess happened.
No one in the US DOESN'T have someone either in or going in, or WAS in. Even though we gave the Taliban an Amerigeddon sized asskicking, there's still more to do, thanks to Uncle Brandon.
G-d bless the USA.
Mooch apparently liked Gauguin's Tahiti stuff.
If ONLY she thought Tahiti was trendier than Martha's Vineyard...maybe not enough fruits in Tahiti (compared to The Vineyard) for Barry's taste. Quien sabes?
GoComics had an Off The Mark cartoon on 2022_09_21 featuring a rat on a treadmill. The rat is watching a video of a simulated maze on the monitor in front of it. The following puns hwere in the comments section:
Cheese! It’s just a curd to me!

Just a curd? Oh cheese!
Whey too easy.
Please, no more. I camembert it.
Puns are a curdst.
