To Save Time, The Babylon Bee Will Now Just Republish Everything Biden Says Verbatim

Image
From The Babylon Bee

The Bible tells us to work smarter, not harder. Or, better yet, don't work at all if you can help it. You can look it up. It's in the Proverbs somewhere.

That's why we're announcing today that we will simply be republishing everything Joe Biden says word for word rather than spending a lot of time and effort writing satire.

We at The Babylon Bee realized we were spending all this time trying to satirize Joe Biden when, frankly, he just can't be satirized. He's doing all the hard work for us with statements like "You ain't black!" and, of gun violence, that "150 million people have been killed since 2007."

Every day is a real grind when we arrive at the sprawling Babylon Bee headquarters, settle in on our throne of Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and boot up the ol' PC to check what Biden said over the past 24 hours. We're tired of trying to out-parody things like "I got hairy legs that turn blon…

Democrats Will Sacrifice America to Win a Presidency

Image
By William L. Gensert

The Dems will not allow any semblance of normalcy to return until Trump and recalcitrant Republicans in the Senate agree to bail out Democrat-run states facing fiscal insolvency.  Democrat socialist policies have left states like California and Illinois with unsustainable pension obligations and exponentially growing deficits too dear for a shrinking tax base to sustain.

Buying votes ain't cheap.

Yet why would citizens, prudently residing in red states, acquiesce to paying for votes Democrats have bought in the past and wish to purchase in the future?

They would not unless forced to.

Democrat governors, in particular Newsom (Calif.), Pritzker (Ill.), Murphy (N.J.), and Cuomo (N.Y.), are like terrorists, unwilling to release their states from lockdown unless they get their ransom.

The heck with the little people, the deplorables who refuse to see.  They need to be shown the error of their ways.  Should they perish in the process, they brought it upon themsel…

The Citizen Army That Will Recall Gavin Newsom

Image
By Edward Ring

Even in deep-blue California, it is possible to achieve the impossible. The technology to facilitate mass uprisings is mature and ubiquitous and will function with or without the complicity of the social media and search monopolies. The political realignment we are witnessing in California is not partisan, it is not conservative or liberal, Right or Left, or Republican or Democrat. It is comprised of old and young, rich and poor, black and white, and everyone else. This is a mass uprising.

California’s pandemic shutdown isn’t just pushing the economy to the brink, it’s taken away whatever remained of the trust that Californians had in their elected officials.

This mistrust is finding expression in a growing movement to recall California Governor Gavin Newsom. Already, tens of thousands of California voters have signed up as volunteers to sign and circulate recall petitions. That number is growing every week.

But that isn’t all. Agendas are aligning. Alliances are formi…

Do You Know the Meaning of Memorial Day? Here's the History Behind the Holiday

Image
By LAUREN MATTHEWS and JENNIFER ALDRICH
What's Memorial Day? It's easy to forget, but the holiday weekend is about far more than an extra day off work to spend binging the best patriotic movies or enjoying Memorial Day recipes. The holiday, which is observed on the last Monday of May every year, falls on May 25, 2020. Although you probably know the special day honors those who have lost their lives serving in the U.S. military, you might be unaware of the origins behind the day of remembrance. To get yourself in the right frame of mind, check out some Memorial Day quotes and these nine fascinating facts about the holiday. 1. MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATIONS MIGHT HAVE STARTED IN ANCIENT TIMES. Way back in 431 B.C., soldiers killed in the Peloponnesian War were honored with a public funeral and speech given by Greek statesman Pericles, according to History.com. This is thought to be the first communal ceremony of recognizing those who had given their life in war. Year after year, ancie…

NY Times on Memorial Day Weekend: US Military celebrates white supremacism

As Americans reeling from coronavirus stay-at-home orders struggle to celebrate the nation's heroes on Memorial Day,The New York Times published an editorial over the weekend that claims the U.S. military celebrates white supremacy. On Sunday, The New York Times Editorial Board published the piece titled “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?” The editorial made the argument that it’s time to rename military bases after “American heroes, not racist traitors.” Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Rath Hoffman tweeted Sunday night in response: “On a solemn day for remembering those that have given their lives for our country fighting against tyranny and subjugation, the NYT has more than a million possible stories of the ultimate sacrifice by American patriots that they could tell. But they don’t.” He followed up, in a statement: “The Department of Defense is the most diverse meritocracy in the country and the most powerful force for good in world history. We have many stori…

President Trump continued to donate his presidential salary by signing over his latest paycheck to the Department of Health and Human Services.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced the donation during a press conference on Friday, noting that the president earmarked the donation to go toward further research on treatments for the coronavirus.

"I want to note the president, as you all are well aware, donates his salary to various initiatives and parts across the federal government. In this quarter, he will be donating his salary to HHS, Health and Human Services, to develop new therapies for treating and preventing COVID-19 so that we can safely reopen," McEnany said.

The president has made his quarterly donation of $100,000 to several government initiatives that he values, including a payment to the Department of Homeland Security to build the southern border wall and a donation to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health to combat…

Alyssa Milano Gets Trashed On Twitter For Wearing Crocheted Face Mask In ‘Pro-Mask’ Photo

By Emily Zanotti, Edits by Tex

Outspoken progressive actress Alyssa Milano met with a wave of criticism for promoting face masks on Twitter Saturday while sporting a face mask of her own that did not appear to be doing much to quash the spread of coronavirus.

Milano posted a selfie of her family on their way to get a coronavirus antibody test in Los Angeles, Californa, and all four members of the family were masked, though Milano herself was sporting a crocheted face mask, full of holes. Milano used the post as a way of encouraging mask wearing for health and safety during the coronavirus pandemic.

For many like Milano, under the impression that supporters of President Donald Trump oppose masks, mask-wearing has become a pol…

Why Civilian Control of the Military?

Image
By Jim Garamone

Civilian control of the military is so ingrained in America that we hardly give it a second thought. Most Americans don't realize how special this relationship is and how it has contributed to the country.

The framers of the U.S. Constitution worked to ensure the military would be under civilian control. They did not want to emulate the European experience. The colonies had just fought a war for freedom from Britain. The king controlled the British military, and the framers had no interest in duplicating that system.

When they wrote the Constitution they separated the responsibilities for the military, placing the responsibilities firmly in civilian hands.

Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution states that Congress shall have the power "to raise and support Armies …" and "to provide and maintain a Navy." In addition, Congress must provide for the state militias when they are called to federal service.

Article II, Section 2 state…

The Madness of James Mattis

Image
By Maj. Danny Sjursen

In a well-received Wall Street Journal op-ed, former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis delivered a critique of Donald Trump that was as hollow as it was self-righteous. Explaining his decision to resign from the administration, the retired Marine general known as “Mad Dog” eagerly declared himself “apolitical,” peppering his narrative with cheerful vignettes about his much beloved grunts. “We all know that we’re better than our current politics,” he observed solemnly. “Tribalism must not be allowed to destroy our experiment.”

Yet absent from this personal reflection, which has earned bipartisan adulation, was any kind of out-of-the-box thinking and, more disturbingly, anything resembling a mea culpa—either for his role in the Trump administration or his complicity in America’s failing forever wars in the greater Middle East. For a military man, much less a four-star general, this is a cardinal sin. What’s worse, no one in the mainstream media appears willing to ch…
