The current version of creation has been a shit show so far but that doesn’t mean the shit show will stop anytime in the next few thousand years. The gods are relentless with their torment.
Behold! The dimwit who got 81million votes (yeah, right) in the last selection of clowns, dives in with a hearty handshake and words of brilliance:
BIDEN: “No one fucks with a Biden…”

Is he channeling his inner Jesus?
That’s right. Mr. Big…dick…Joey is a titan, a captain of industry, a stout and sturdy living god whom all mere mortals look up to….and all nations bow and tremble before his presence.
White House blasts Opec saying it is ‘aligning with Russia’ after oil production cut announcement – via news.yahoo.com
The White House had searing words for the oil-producing nations of Opec+ on Wednesday following news that the bloc would cut oil production by 2m barrels per day.
Speaking with reporters aboard Air Force One, Karine Jean-Pierre called the decision “short-sighted” and a “mistake”, while adding that it showed a clear decision by the trading bloc to line up against the US and the west. – via news.yahoo.com
Big…dick…Joey can’t get the Saudi’s to keep production up? They’re aligning with Russia?
Evidently, there are many who can and do fuck with the Joey.
And while nobody fucks with the Joey, in Joey’s demented mind…the Joey delights in fucking with as many as possible.
US National Debt Blows Past $31 Trillion – via zerohedge.com
For the old timers in here, it seems like just yesterday that the US national debt was “only” pushing $6 trillion. Then, between the ‘war on terror’ and QE which made a mockery of moral hazard, America has now reached a grim financial milestone – as the national debt tops $31 trillion for the first time, according to a new Treasury Department report.
As Michael Maharrey of SchiffGold notes; So What?
[T]here is no end to the borrowing and spending in sight. In August alone, the US government ran a massive $219.6 billion budget deficit.
While spending has slowed somewhat with the end of pandemic-era programs, the Biden administration continues to burn through roughly half-a-trillion dollars every single month. With one month left in the fiscal year, the government has spent just over $5.35 trillion.
And there is more spending coming down the pike.
The US government is still handing out COVID stimulus and it wants more. Congress recently pushed through another massive spending bill. Meanwhile, the US continues to shower money on Ukraine and other countries around the world. And we haven’t begun to see the impact of student loan forgiveness.
On top of increased spending, rising interest rates will balloon the debt even more.
Every increase in interest rate raises the federal government’s interest expense. So far in fiscal 2022, the US Treasury has forked out $471 billion just to fund the government’s interest payments.
To put that number into context, at this point in fiscal 2021 the Treasury’s interest expense stood at $356 billion. That represents a 30% year-on-year increase. Interest expense ranks as the sixth largest budget expense category, about $250 billion below Medicare. If interest rates remain elevated or continue rising, interest expenses could climb rapidly into the top three federal expenses. (You can read a more in-depth analysis of the national debt HERE.
According to the Congressional Budget Office, this is exactly what will happen. It projects interest payments will triple from nearly $400 billion in fiscal 2022 to $1.2 trillion in 2032. And it’s worse than that. The CBO made this estimate in May. Interest rates are already higher than those used in its analysis.
Most people just shrug off the ever-growing national debt. When we talk about the soaring debt, the answer is, “So what?” They figure if it hasn’t mattered yet, it won’t matter tomorrow. But you can only kick the debt can down the road so far before you run out of road.
But thank the gods these demented psychofuck’s will never run out of road. After all, there’s a war over there, baby, and Big…dick…Joey certainly won’t be pushing for peace negotiations, he’s got some more big…dick spending to keep that death and destruction thing going.
The White House has continued its strong stance and denunciations against Russia’s “sham referendums” in Ukraine’s east – now being formalized in Russian parliament – while unveiling a new $625 million security assistance package for Ukraine.
The new aid package, which brings the total defense assistance pledged by the United States since the start of the war to a whopping $16.8 billion, was announced in relation with Tuesday’s phone call between President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Vince President Kamala Harris was also in on the call. – via zerohedge.com
