Treasurer Marilynn Malerba of the Mohegans

With moonbats running the government, appointments are made on the basis of identity politics. The result has been farce, as the Biden Regime degenerates ever further into self-parody.

We now have a Treasurer of the United States whose qualification for office is that she is an Indian chief. Meet Marilynn Malerba of the Mohegans:

Her signature will now appear along with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on U.S. currency.

With the gold standard gone, maybe we can restore financial stability by basing US currency on beaver pelts.

Yellen hailed the appointment at the Treasury Department ceremony as a sign of the Biden administration’s “respect for, and commitment toward, our nation-to-nation relationship, trust and treaty responsibilities, and Tribal sovereignty and self-determination.”

If Malerba represents a different nation, what is she doing in the US Treasury Department?

Malerba, who will remain lifetime chief of the Mohegan Indian Tribe which is made up of roughly 2,400 people, previously worked as a registered nurse, and has served in various tribal government roles.

She is probably as qualified to be a brain surgeon as she is to be a treasurer. But at least she can’t be any worse than Yellen.

Malerba made clear that she will advance the interests of Indians at the expense of Americans in general:

“We all know that, historically, many promises have not been kept to the indigenous peoples of this nation. But we can and will do better,” said Malerba, who wore a red and black tribal ensemble and matching headdress.

For crying out loud. At least Ketanji Brown Jackson — who was appointed explicitly for being a black woman — didn’t show up for her Supreme Court hearing wearing a bone necklace.

Despite rhetoric about its oppression of Indians, our historic first squaw female person of indigenousness treasurer did have something nice thing to say about the USA:

“Katantuoot, wuyunomsh United States qa wuyunomsh kiyawin,” she said. “Great spirit bless these United States and bless us all.”

The Babylon Bee is run by Christians who would never be vicious enough to invent a story like this. That’s how you can tell straight news from parody.

I thought Indians had black hair.

Slavery Has Been Reinstituted

Slavery had existed throughout the world since before recorded history before whites largely put an end to it in the 19th century. No one should be surprised that this repressive institution has staged a comeback.

In a modern society, slavery works differently. You are not owned by an individual. The power of the individual has been supplanted by Big Government. You are owned by a faceless collective of bureaucrats.

A kind master might show mercy. There will be no mercy from the bureaucratic Borg. So long as you live on their plantation, you will work harder and harder for less and less until the day you die.

As the Bureau of Labor Statistics admits, already the government takes more of the wealth we create than we spend on food, clothing, and healthcare combined:

During 2021, according to Table R-1 in the BLS’ Consumer Expenditure Survey, American “consumer units” spent an average of $15,495.28 on food, clothing and health care combined, while paying an average of $16,729.73 in total taxes to federal, state and local governments.

State and local governments at least provide important services in exchange for the taxes. However, the federal government takes much more:

These included $8,561.46 in federal income taxes; $5,565.45 in Social Security taxes; $2,564.14 in state and local income taxes; $2,475.18 in property taxes; $105.21 in other taxes—minus an average of $2,541.71 in stimulus payments received back from the government.

Note that this does not include the massive invisible federal tax that is inflation.

The main purpose of the federal government is to defend the border from foreign invasion. Not only does it refuse to perform this duty, it actually encourages Third World armies of the indigent to invade our country on a gargantuan scale to displace us — even recruiting them abroad.

The federal government does us more harm than good. The only reason to give it money is that it will send men with guns to hurt us if we refuse. It takes the money on the same basis as Mafia extortionists, with the added insult that it pretends it has a right to and we are greedy to object.

By confiscating our money, Big Government steals our labor. To the extent we work so that Joe Biden and his ilk can fritter away the wealth we create, we are slaves by any reasonable definition.

Hat tip: Not the Bee.

LaToya Cantrell Basks in Intersectional Privilege

A Woman of Color like New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell is blessed with intersectional oppression. That’s why she deserves to travel luxuriantly while her city wallows in poverty. Bigots want her to return to the city the small fortune she has spent upgrading her plane tickets to first class or business class, but like Rosa Parks, she sits firm:

Mayor LaToya Cantrell told local reporters Thursday she won’t fork over the exorbitant fees she charged for the upgraded tickets, including an $18,000 first-class trip to France over the summer.

Her first class flights cost up to nine times as much as the coach seat her aide has to settle for.

Since January 2021, Cantrell has charged the city of New Orleans $29,000 to travel first- or business-class instead of coach, The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reported.

According to the city’s travel policy, municipal workers have to take the cheapest flight or pay back the difference. But Cantrell knows it would be both racist and sexist to apply this policy to someone who is intersectionally oppressed. She proclaims that she must travel first class at taxpayer expense for her safety:

“Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world Black women walk in.”

Sure we do. They walk in a world where the rules don’t apply to them, where they are immune to criticism, and where morons can rise to Vice President, Supreme Court Justice, or Mayor of New Orleans with no serious qualifications other than their politically correct intersectional identity.

Lori Lightfoot Is Liberal Hypocrisy Personified

Despite the preposterous claim by Kamala Harris that the southern border is secure, millions of colonists from the Third World have been pouring over it at will, due to the refusal by Democrats to secure it. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has made a point by sending a tiny fraction of the illegal aliens to the sanctuary city Chicago — where their welcome was short-lived.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot criticized Abbott for sending them, even questioning his Christian faith. However, at first she welcomed the invaders:

“This is such an important moment for Chicago as our city has been a sanctuary for thousands of newcomers. We are welcoming them and we will not turn our backs on those who need our help the most,” Lightfoot said in a statement, according to WMAQ-TV.

She denounced Texas for not keeping her informed:

“If you don’t want these folks to stay in Texas, then make sure that you collaborate with the cities before you put them on buses so that we can be here and make sure that our services are welcoming.”

A few days later Lightfoot dumped the undocumented Democrats on suburban Burr Ridge without notifying local authorities, leaving Mayor Gary Grasso to fume,

“This is hundreds of people in a city of millions. Why are they sending them out to the Republican suburbs? You have to wonder.”

Actually, you don’t have to wonder. The point of importing millions of illegal aliens is to turn Republican districts blue by creating a massive, unassimilable, handout-dependent underclass. Chicago is already blue. The illegals have to be properly disseminated if the whole country is to look like Chicago.

Feminist Endgame

Feminists have it in for more than the “patriarchy.” They want to wreck more even than the family. Their ideology is a toxic form of nihilism designed to destroy pretty much everything, extending beyond their own lives to the lives of those around them, and from there to society in general and even human existence:

Feminism is a miserable ideology for miserable people. As the saying goes, misery loves company.

Why Kamala Harris Pretends Border Is Secure

Don’t let her soulless cackle fool you; Kamala Harris actually does have a sense of humor. Check out this howler from the clown Biden put in charge of pretending to secure the wide open southern border:

“The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular, over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed,” Harris told [NBC Meet the Press] host Chuck Todd in Houston.

This arrogant lie was too much for even a Democrat propagandist like Todd.

“We’re going to have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever. You’re confident this border’s secure?” Todd followed.

The 2 million arrests mark is expected to be passed by the end of the month. In accordance with Democrat policy, those arrested are allowed to stay in the country on the assumption that they and their numerous descendants will be government dependents and vote Democrat for generations to come.

Harris responded to Todd’s challenge with a barrage on incoherent duckspeak, during which she accused those who want the border secured of “playing politics.”

“Nearly 5 million illegal aliens have crossed our border under Biden’s watch,” tweeted Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) on Monday. “This is the largest figure in American history. The border is not secure.”

Even Kamala Harris knows that. By saying otherwise, Biden’s Border Czarina confirms that the Administration is content with the current state of affairs and has no intention of securing the border. It is important to get this message out, so that undocumented Democrats will keep coming by the millions.

Moonbat Utopia Temporarily Achieved

Following the martyrdom of Saint George of Fentanyl, social justice warriors dared to dream of a utopia in which local police have been defunded and reimagined right out existence. This vision has been realized, if only for a brief, shining moment.

Rejoice, moonbats! Here’s your world without police:

Why John Fetterman Always Wears a Hoodie

We already knew that Senate candidate John Fetterman (D-PA) underwent a stroke that left him cognitively disabled. We know that even before this, he was a mental case who believed it would be a good idea to release one third of inmates onto American streets and that speech should be suppressed if it draws attention to election fraud. We know that he has referred to himself as “John Fetterwoman.” We know that he suffers from serious heart issues. Now we know why he always wears those juvenile hoodies. But does anyone know what that is preparing to burst out of the back of his neck?

Fears that Fetterman has been hiding something about his health appear to be justified.

What Students Are Taught “Fascism” Means

We know what fascism means according to the dictionary. Basically, it is a form of militant socialism similar to liberalism, but without the self-loathing. But that’s not how kids are being taught to define it:

A teacher from Madison High School in San Diego claimed fascists are synonymous with the “modern-day Republican Party” and “white, Christian, heterosexuals,” according to a student at the school. Speaking on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retaliation, the high school student detailed the teacher’s unhinged definition of a “fascist.”

Impressionable kids walked into class September 1 to see written on the board,

As it is currently constituted, the Republican party is now a fascist organization that no longer fits the category of a conventional Democratic party.

Sounds like the Dark Brandon speech really struck home among educators.

But the teacher didn’t stop there. He continued with his radical left-wing indoctrination by listing whites, Christians, and heterosexuals as groups that are “fascist.”

If you are white, you are fascist. If you are a Christian, you are fascist. If you are not a sexual deviant, you are fascist. To sum up, if moonbats hate you because of where you get pigeonholed by their identity-based ideology, you are fascist.

This is what students learn in English class.

The student took pictures to document the brainwashing he was forced to undergo. You can see why teachers’ unions are so adamantly opposed to cameras in the classroom that would allow parents to monitor from home.

A passage from Through the Looking Glass comes to mind:

“When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

’The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’

’The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master — that’s all.”

The creed that has appropriated the title “liberalism” is based on postmodernism. Language is seen as tool used to control not only people but reality itself, or what passes for reality within the context of relativist postmodern hogwash. This is why revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary are made so relentlessly.

“Fascism” no longer means what it has always meant; it means whatever our masters among the liberal ruling class find it advantageous to pretend it means.

Plea Deals for September 11 Conspirators

Yesterday was September 11. What more likely day for news to come out that the planners of the infamous terror attack may be allowed to cop a plea?

U.S. military prosecutors are reportedly negotiating potential plea deals with 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four other conspirators imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.

The point is to escape the death penalty — which at this rate was never going to be carried out before they die of old age anyway.

Mohammed is widely credited with being the architect of the 9/11 terror attacks. The other four defendants are Ramzi Binalshibh, Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi, Walid bin Attash and Ammar al-Baluchi.

The defendants cite mistreatment by the CIA. They murdered almost 3,000 Americans, probably including journalist Daniel Pearl in addition to those killed on 9/11. Yet the terrorists are the victims. In a society deranged by moonbattery, the bad guys are always the victims, and victims tend to get their way.

Each of the defendants has been assigned a military lawyer, a civilian lawyer and a human rights lawyer.

Each of them should have been assigned a firing squad more than 20 years ago.

Fumed James Woods yesterday,

“To see this headline on September 11 is appalling. Why is justice such an elusive concept in America today? Will the heinous among us never be held accountable? This is an outrage, and to read about it on this sacred day is an insult to the fallen.”

As noted yesterday, Biden’s unconditional surrender facilitated the next attack. Uncoincidentally, September 11, 2021 was set as the date by which Afghanistan was to be turned over to al Qaeda’s Taliban allies.

Trump to Blame if Dem Pol Killed Reporter

Who gets the blame when a Democrat politician is arrested for murdering a journalist who had ruined his career by exposing his unseemly conduct? You guessed it: Donald Trump.

From Nevada:

Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles was arrested for the gruesome murder of Jeff German, a reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal…

German had recently published an exposé about Telles, alleging that Telles created a hostile work environment and had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with one staffer. Over the summer, Telles lost a bid for reelection to fellow Democrat Rita Reid, and many have suspected that German’s recent articles helped sink Telles’ campaign. …

According to police, the evidence against Telles, an ardent gun control advocate, is damning.

Last week, Joe Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department took questions from the media. An unnamed reporter did her best to shoehorn the story into the liberal narrative:

[A] reporter noted it was probably not an “appropriate” time to talk about “politics,” to which Sheriff Joseph Lombardo responded, “So why are we talking politics then?”

The reporter then pressed: “Do you condemn former President Trump’s normalization of violence against journalists?” — likely a reference to the former president’s frequent reference to some mainstream correspondents as “enemies of the people.”

Now why would anyone see ideologues in the left-wing media establishment as enemies of the American people?

Teachers, Disney Employee Busted for Human Trafficking

This story will surprise no one familiar with the institutionalized grooming championed by Disney and imposed by public schools. From Florida:

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies arrested 160 people in a seven-day operation focused on human trafficking in Florida.

Deputies said the arrests from “Fall Haul 2” included school teachers, a state corrections officer, and a Disney employee.

Only one Disney employee? They must be keeping their heads down — for a change.
