Yes, Now Even 'Shark Week' Is Racist and
Too Filled With Guys Named Mike

Who needs the Babylon Bee when we have the Washington Post? Could the Bee, as brilliant as it is, give us a more precise and devastating takedown of woke victimhood mongering than the Bezos Bulletin gave us on Monday, in a story that is actually and unironically entitled “‘Shark Week’ lacks diversity, overrepresents men named Mike, scientists say”? If I had seen that at the Babylon Bee, I’d have chuckled and maybe thought it was a trifle over the top. But the Post, in all its self-important “Democracy Dies In Darkness” glory, would be quick to brand you a racist right-wing extremist if you dared to crack a smile.

The Washington Poop is perfect for the brain-dead xiden administration. Both are silly, ridiculous and sadly very dangerous.

It should not matter to an ocean swimmer getting eaten by a shark whether the shark is an oceanic white-tip or an oceanic black-tip. It's just nature, and nature likes a good meal.

I have no idea why anyone would gripe about diversity on SHARK WEEK. If you look at the commercials for the show white people are in the minority these days. Black people are about 13% of the population but appear in 90% of the commercials. I've even seen costume dramas where lords and ladies of Outer Baldonia are at the ball dressed in silks and jewels and its snowing outside. Yet, there's the Black man in a fancy costume used as a prop holding a wineglass and nodding aimlessly at fellow extras. If I was a Black person I would consider such casting as demeaning and racist. Many commercials would also fall into that category.

The commercials are not only mostly black but it's obvious that the writers are white given the proliferation of stereotypes, shouting and dancing around. If I wanted to view plus-size clothing on everybody I would go to Walmart.

My brother-in-law is a guy named Mike who regularly is featured on Shark Week. He is a shark expert, having studied, researched, and taught about sharks all his life. What difference does it make whether or not he's white or that his name is Mike?

A recent conversation with my (now former) GP did not go well. After insisting on the virulent consequences of COVID-19 and extolling the efficacy of the jabs, he did not respond kindly to my demurrals. He simply dismissed as the illiteracy of a layman my recital of the results provided by our best, independent virologists on the 99% recovery rate from the virus (the profusion of contrary fact-checks by the usual suspects is obviously meant to uphold the ritual narrative), the adverse and often lethal nature of the genomic injections, and the grand collusion and bulldozing approach of the major operators promoting the greatest scam of the modern age,

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. Charlene’s “episodes” always ended with her waking up with no memory of having made a dozen or so miniature pangolins out of Rice Krispies. It would appear that the United States of America has angered whatever luck or karma gods are pulling the strings in the universe.

In the midst of a massive military recruiting crisis and Republicans taking the House, the misguided vaccine mandate may be on its way out. Final defense legislation set to be unveiled next week could undo the Pentagon’s policy of kicking out troops for not taking the Covid vaccine, the Democratic chair of the House Armed Services Committee said Saturday. Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said a rollback of the policy is on the table for a compromise version of the National Defense Authorization Act, but hasn’t been decided yet. “We haven’t resolved it, but it is very fair to say that it’s in discussion,” Smith told POLITICO on the sidelines

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has been openly critical of Elon Musk’s actions since Musk acquired the platform, and engaged in a little whining on Friday during Matt Taibbi’s “Twitter Files” thread by asking why naming names was necessary and that it “seems dangerous.” Saturday night brought a few more tweets from Stone that seemingly admits that the site engaged in a lot more than mere censorship. Stone’s first tweet just complains about Musk: "He’s not a serious person. He does things for sport that have serious consequences for real people. This is an open, global service.

In 2020, when we first learned about Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell,” we all knew it was real. It wasn’t until after the 2020 election was over that the mainstream media slowly but surely started to concede the laptop was genuine, but at least one left-wing journalist still thinks the laptop story is dubious. David Corn, the D.C. bureau chief of Mother Jones and an MSNBC analyst, apparently still believes that the laptop isn’t legit. On Friday, while bracing for Elon Musk’s release of internal Twitter communications over the censoring of the laptop story, Corn advised his followers to “please read my original piece on the Hunter Biden laptop.

Broke-ness follows wokeness because it’s invariably the incompetent, lazy, corrupt and otherwise failed institutions that radicalize to avoid doing their jobs. From the federal government to corporate monopolies to financial gimmicks like FTX to the media to massive charities, institutional wokeness is a red flag that an organization is incompetent or a scam. As a rule of thumb, the less innovative and functional an organization is, the more likely it is to disguise its innate worthlessness through virtue signaling. Executives go woke when they have no idea how to move a company forward. Employees who don’t want to do their jobs descend into identity politics and demand that the

What is money? Money is perhaps one of humanity’s most important inventions. But what is it really? Credit? A medium of exchange? A store of value? All of the above? On Dec. 8, 2021, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried told the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services how digital assets could be that and more. In the language of the testimony, digital assets were a “financial innovation” that could improve — and possibly replace — older instruments. Sam Bankman-Fried was before Congress to praise regulation, not to bury it. “Why would the titan of crypto want regulation?” asked the Washington Examiner. “Part of it is that big guys like regulation

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., threw cold water on President Biden's hopes to pass an assault weapons ban during the lame duck Congress on Sunday. Murphy argued that the votes for such a bill are "probably not" there for Democrats, despite the president's push to enact a ban following a spate of shootings in recent weeks. The 50-50 split in Congress means Democrats would need 10 Republicans to defect and vote for the ban in order to overcome a filibuster. "I’m glad that President Biden is gonna be pushing us to take a vote on an assault weapons ban," he told CNN’s Dana Bash. "The House has already passed it.

His sister reported him missing around 8 a.m. but hadn’t seen him since he left a bar to use the restroom around 11 p.m. the previous evening. At that point, the U.S. Coast Guard got involved. The ship turned around and retraced its route hoping to find the unidentified man. Eventually, Valor continued on its way with no sign of the man. The Coast Guard conducted an intensive search, alerting all vessels in the area to the emergency. The Coast Guard resources included

Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) won reelection Tuesday, fending off a spirited challenge from Republican Herschel Walker while helping Democrats grow their thin Senate majority in the midterm elections after a bruising four-week runoff campaign. Warnock was leading Walker 50.4% to 49.6% when the race was called, earning the senator his first, full six-year term after ousting an appointed Republican incumbent in a special election runoff nearly two years ago. Walker’s defeat was a major blow to the Republicans. They capped a disappointing midterm election season with yet another loss that effectively surrendered a Senate seat to the Democrats, who saw their majority grow from 50 to 51.

Walmart's CEO has warned that the retail giant may have to hike prices and shutter some stores amid 'historically high' thefts. Speaking on CNBC's Squawk Box Tuesday, Walmart CEO Doug McMillon admitted that theft has become a major issue for the chain known for its low prices, saying woke district attorneys' lenient policies need to be 'corrected.' 'If that's not corrected over time, prices will be higher and our stores will close,' he told co-host Rebecca Quick. McMillon did not specify in the interview which locations have experienced this record-high level of shoplifting, but his announcement comes after Walmarts in Los Angeles resorted to locking up most of their inventory

Some New York lawmakers are renewing the push for a state law that would lay the groundwork to pay reparations to black residents whose ancestors were enslaved. Proponents gained steam after a task force in California last week recommended that the Golden State shell out $569 billion in reparations to slaves’ descendents there, or $223,200 apiece, because of lingering housing discrimination practices. A previously proposed New York measure called for creating a commission to study the impact of slavery and providing reparations but failed to pass the legislature. It is now being revised, backers said.

Reports surfaced two weeks ago that Florida Republicans are considering changing the state’s “resign-to-run” law so Governor Ron DeSantis could throw his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential nomination without losing his governorship. It is one sign among many that DeSantis, or those close to him, are thinking about taking on Donald Trump in the primary. A word of warning and wisdom to DeSantis: Don’t do it. DeSantis is a promising politician with a real future on the national scene. He should want to be president. But not yet. DeSantis needs to understand his true self-interest. Running for president in 2024 isn’t it.

New York is poised to become the sixth state to legalize ‘human composting’ — which sees people turned into soil. For $7,000, bodies are decomposed in 'coffins' for two months before the resulting soil is handed to loved ones to sprinkle over rose patches, trees or a nature reserve. It has already been legalized in California, Colorado, Oregon, Vermont and Washington, with more than 200 Americans opting for the process to date. And the latest eco-craze is surging in popularity with the center pioneering human composting — Recompose — tripling in size in just two years. They now have 1,200 people on the ‘waiting’ list.
