Darth Vader to Re-design suit; Seeks Open Concept and Subway Backsplash

I Like the idea of an open concept!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sith Lord Darth Vader has decided that he is going to completely redesign his mobile life support system.

“It’s time” said Vader when announcing the change.

Don’t get me wrong.  After my duel with that pansy Obi-Wan Kenobi my suit gave me a new life.  And it has many advantages.  It exudes an air of intimidation, which is very important for anyone representing the Dark Side.  But the suit is, well, a little dated.  It’s very claustrophobic.  And dark.  Very very dark.  It doesn’t let the sun in.  I may represent the Dark Side but I like sunshine just the same as everyone else.  And don’t get me started on trying to eat in this thing.  Have you ever tried to eat pasta in one of these?  Half doesn’t make it through the slits on my mouth thingy and the other half dribbles down my suit.  You try intimidating people when you have pasta stains all over the front of your mobile life support system!

After receiving multiple bids, Vader settled on the design team of Chip and Joanna Gaines.

We can do so much with Vader’s suit!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We look forward to this challenge” said Joanna Gaines.

What can I say about Darth’s suit?  Who originally designed it?  I suppose it was good at the time but it’s very outdated.  What I want to do is create an open concept and make his suit more roomy and modern.  So I’m going to knock down the exterior walls and put up some shiplap.  Also he could use some subway tile backsplash. The entire effect will make him seem friendlier.  He may represent the Dark Side but that doesn’t mean he can’t be approachable.

The first step in the redesign is what Chip Gaines likes to call “Demo Day!”

I love Demo Day!  I get to knock down stuff.  I guess it’s the little boy in me that likes doing this.  Darth wasn’t so sure.  He got a little nervous when I started attacking his life support suit with a sledgehammer. But he calmed down when I explained that it was all part of the process.  The only part I didn’t like was getting to see what he looked like without the suit.  He was all moldy and wrinkled and disfigured. I haven’t seen anything that disgusting since Mick Jagger.

Despite a few bumps along the way Vader is very happy with his new suit redesign.

Darth Vader’s new roomy life support suit

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I can’t tell you how much I love it!” said the happy Dark Lord.

So much space!  I get to move around.  And I love the homey touches in the new suit.  The backsplash.  The shiplap.  And they even put up a motivational poster that says “Dark Lords need love too!”  I tell you, Chip and Joanna understand me!

Despite Vader’s happiness with his new suit there have been issues.  As the suit is now 30 feet wide he has difficulty getting in and out of doors and the other Sith Lords have taken to calling him “Darth Fat Ass.”

They can say what they want” Vader replied. “They are just jealous. Soon everyone will be asking for a suit that looks like mine!”

Biden Travels to Lower Circles of Hell for Rousing Campaign Speech!

The Dark Lord!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

President Biden travelled to the lowest circles of Hell on Thursday to give a speech warning of the dangers Republicans pose to the new world order.

“I want to thank the many demons here for allowing me to speak tonight” said President Biden

As I look out at the audience I see many good Democrats here. Judas Iscariot, Muhammed the Prophet, John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald and of course the big man himself, my good buddy Satan, the Father of Lies. Where’s Ginger?  You know the girl from Gilligan’s Island.  I was told she’d be here too.

Satan spoke up and reminded the President that while it is true that all gingers have no soul and are condemned, the actress who played Ginger was still very much alive.

“She’ll be here soon. Just be patient” said Satan.

The President then gave the reason for speaking from hell.

I wanted to give a speech in front of loyal Democrats.  And where will you find more Democrats than here?  Actually the original plan was to give the speech at Independence Hall in Philadelphia but the crime rate in that city is incredible. It was then that my chief of staff suggested Hell, saying that I’d be safer in Hell and that since I was going to be there soon anyway I might as well take a look around.

With the introductory remarks out of the way, the President started into his speech.

My fellow Americans, please, if you have a seat, take it. If you don’t have one, steal it. If you have no seat to steal then wait for a Demon to flay your body into a seat.  I speak to you tonight from sacred ground for Democrats:  Hell, the birthplace of slavery and socialism.  Two beliefs dear to all Democrats.

But as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault by people who disagree with me.  And disagreeing with me is disagreeing with Satan.  And disagreeing with Satan will get you flayed.

We, the people, have burning inside each of us the flame of liberty that was lit at Independence Hall.  Okay maybe not the flame of liberty.  More like the fires of hell that are burning inside us. Liberty. Hell.  They are the same thing.

Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism and love of liberty that threaten the very foundations of our Hell.

Now, I want to be very clear —  very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans.  Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. Many Republicans will also end up in hell.

And these mainstream Hell-bound Republicans are Republicans I can work with.

I’m an American President — not the President of red America or blue America, but of all America. At least the Americans in Hell.

History tells us that blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence is fatal to democracy. That’s why I’m asking all Americans to follow my good friend Satan and if possible give him ten percent of everything they make. And not just because Satan gives me ten percent of his cut but because it’s the right thing to do.

We, the people, will not let anyone or anything tear us apart.

As the President said this a demon flew about his head, tearing apart one of the condemned.

Look at that.  Must be a MAGA Republican!

We’ve seen FBI agents just doing their job arresting the opposition as I have directed, facing threats to their own lives from their own fellow citizens. Such disrespect for Satan’s minions shall not be tolerated.

Even in this moment, with all the challenges we face, I give you my word as a Biden: I will sniff your child’s hair.

I ran for President because I believed we were in a battle for the soul of this nation.  And looking about me at all the condemned souls in Hell I know one thing:  These are my people.  These are loyal Democrats.

May God protect our nation. And may God protect all those who stand watch over our democracy. God bless you all.  Democracy. Thank you

The President then left the podium to thundering applause from the souls in attendance.  Actually it might have been thundering applause or it might have been the sound of souls being flayed by demons.

The President’s speech was well-received in Hell, although the big man, Satan himself, took issue with Biden asking for God’s protection.

“After all I’ve done for him he thanks God?  That does it. I’m giving an order to the next prostitute Hunter goes to:  Give the S.O.B. herpes!”

NASA Scrubs Artemis Launch After Female Astronaut Causes Accident on Launch Pad!

Women drivers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

NASA has announced that the long-awaited launch of its Artemis rocket has been postponed until a later date.

“Things were going fine” said NASA administrator Bill Nelson.

We were all set to go to the moon.  We were practicing ingress and egress with the command module and the countdown was going well. That’s when it happened.

Sources say that after the hatch was closed Mission Control heard one of the female astronauts say “What does this button do?”

We knew we were in trouble.  We all looked at each other and thought “Oh Christ she’s going to push that button.”  And she did push it.  Despite all the training telling her not to push that button she decided once she was in the command module to push it.

The button in question was the emergency escape button. Once pushed the explosive bolts activated and the command module shot up away from the rocket. The parachutes then opened and the command module floated helplessly down to the ground.

We could hear the conversation in the command module and let’s just say it wasn’t pleasant. The other astronauts were furious and kept asking her why she had to press that button and reminding her that in training they were told never to press it. She then started crying.  

After emergency vehicles reached the command module and picked up the astronauts they were transported to a secure facility for debriefing.

We kept asking her why she pushed the button.  That’s when she accused us of “patriarchal behavior”.  She kept telling us not to be so mean to her and that if she were a male astronaut we wouldn’t treat her this badly.  And we wouldn’t. Do you want to know why? A male astronaut wouldn’t have pushed the f*cking emergency escape button.

She then stopped talking to anyone.  When asked what was wrong she’d answer “You know what’s wrong. I shouldn’t have to tell you.”

She just glared at us.  You know the old expression, “If looks could kill”?  Well that definitely applies here.  She then accused us of “using our penises to start wars.”  I mean come on. That’s just not fair.  None of us has ever used our penis to start a war.  Occasionally we use our penises to press buttons on an elevator, but that’s just normal behavior.

NASA has announced that before the next attempt at a launch the command module’s emergency escape button will be retrofitted with a label that says “Direct TV.  Press to watch football.”

“We figure no woman will press that button” said Nelson.

From the White House President Biden expressed regret over the postponement and reiterated his confidence in NASA.

“Corn Pop was a bad dude.” said the President.

Season Two of J6 Hearings to Feature New Character: Cousin Oliver from Brady Bunch!

Producers hope to bring in a younger demographic to replace the Liz Cheney character

 

 

 

 

 

 

Producers of the J6 television show have announced that with the departure of Liz Cheney they will bring in new characters and go for a “younger demographic.”

Look Liz was very popular” said one of the producers of the J6 show.

She was the breakout character and we hated to lose her. But she was, how shall we say this, old.  She was old and we needed to go for a younger audience. And that’s why we think Cousin Oliver from the Brady Bunch will be a perfect fit for the J6 show.

While officially the parting with Cheney is said to be amicable and the producers are wishing her well, there were rumors of tension on the set.

“Liz liked food” said an anonymous source.

She used to break into the other dressing rooms and steal food.  Once she stole Adam Kinzinger’s Happy Meal.  Adam was devastated and spent the day crying.  He wouldn’t even come out on camera for the hearings.  I don’t know which was more unprofessional:  Adam staying in his dressing room or Liz on camera with Happy Meal remnants all over her face.  Another time she tried to eat Jerry Nadler. She got as far as his kidneys before throwing it back up.  It was just a bad look.

Worried that the tension on the set would ruin the hearings, producers decided to buy out Cheney’s contract.

We gave her $100,000 dollars and a lifetime supply of corn dogs.  Actually when we gave her the corn dogs she said she didn’t need the money. Then she started stuffing the corn dogs into her mouth.  I tell you she must give out more gas than a Russian pipeline to Europe.

With Cheney out of the way the producers looked around for a viable character to replace her, one that would appeal to the younger demographic they were after.

Originally we tried to get Ariana Grande. But with the #metoo movement most of the producers were afraid she’d sue if we told her she’d have to sleep with us to get the job. It was then that we settled on Cousin Oliver. 

He’s young! he’s hip! He’s cool!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Hell everyone loved him in The Brady Bunch. He was the show! He is young, hip and will bring in the viewers we are after.

Producers have already prepared an episode arc with Cousin Oliver for the J6 show.

We think Cousin Oliver would be a perfect comic foil for Jerry Nadler.  Imagine the hijinks that would ensue if he stole Nadler’s bacon cheeseburger deluxe or large pizza.  Yes Liz also stole food but she was too serious about it. But with Cousin Oliver it will be comedy gold! I can picture it now: Nadler will chase him around the podium trying to get his food back while Yakety Sax plays in the background.

Cousin Oliver has told reporters that he is pleased to join the show.

“It’s going to be fun. And the producers said all I had to do to get the job was sleep with them. Do they mean a sleep over?  Should I bring my pajamas?”

And now, without further adieu, Yakety sax!

My Exclusive Interview with Liz Cheney

Bow down before me serfs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today at the Worldwide Headquarters of Manhattan Infidel™ I have the pleasure of interviewing Liz Cheney, congresswoman from Wyoming.

MI:  Good afternoon congresswoman Cheney.

LC:  Good afternoon Manhattan Infidel.

MI:  The past couple years you have represented the State of Wyoming in congress.  If I may, your lopsided loss must have been quite a shock.  To what do you attribute your falling out of favor with the citizens of Wyoming?

LC:  When I first ran for congress I couldn’t decide between Wyoming or one of the Dakotas.  I wanted to start out small. Being a congresswoman was only going to be temporary anyway.  I have my sites set on larger fish.

MI:  Are you saying you are going to run for President on the Republican ticket in 2024?

LC:  Yes and I shall be unstoppable.  How can I lose?  I have the support of MSNBC and CNN.  Those two networks are always saying such nice things about me.

MI:  Neither of those networks could be described as catering to the Republican base.  Could that be the reason you were defeated in a landslide?

LC:  [Pause]  Donald Trump is a mean person!

MI:  Wyoming rejected you because Donald Trump is a mean person?

LC:  Yes!  He’s very mean. He’s a meanie!  Mean  people like him used to make fun of me during recess at school.  They called me “fatty” and “cow.”

MI:  I see.

LC:  [Starting to cry]  He’s mean!  Why is everyone always being so mean to me!  

DC:  May I say something? 

War! War! WAR!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MI:  Ladies and gentleman it’s none other than former Vice President Dick Cheney.  Good afternoon Mr. Vice President. May I ask where you are calling from?

DC:  For security reasons I cannot tell you that.  Suffice to say I am currently in the process of transitioning into a duck.

MI:  A duck?

DC:  Yes.  I’m currently pre-op but hope to be a full post-op duck soon.

MI:  Why a duck?

DC:  As a duck I can fly over foreign countries and bomb them.  I am having my duck ass retrofitted with missiles as we speak.  I love war.  WAR!

MI:  You’re insane.

DC:  Hold that thought.  I am about to transition into a fully post-op duck.   Yes. I can feel it.  I’m becoming a duck!  Quack! 

“Duck” Cheney!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MI:  Okay it looks like Vice President Cheney has turned into a duck.

DC:  Quack!  Quack!

LC:  You go dad!  Fly free and bomb foreign countries, without a declaration of war or congressional authorization!

DC:  Quack!

[Former Vice President and current duck Dick Cheney flies into the path of a commercial airliner and is sucked into the jet engine]

MI:  Oh that’s really messy.

LC:  Dad!!

MI:  I’m sorry congresswoman.  It  looks like your father is now nothing but fleshy, bloody pulp on the outside of a jet engine.

LC:  This is Donald Trump’s fault.  He mean!  

MI:  I don’t think – 

LC:  And I’m not fat.  Stop calling me fat!

MI:  I’m not – 

[Congresswoman Cheney breaks down sobbing]

LC:  Trump’s mean.  Just like all men!  

MI:  Well that’s about all the time I have.  

LC:  Are you leaving me?  You’re mean just like all men!

[She runs away sobbing]

MI:  Jeesh.  No wonder Wyoming rejected  her.  [Raising voice]  YOUR FATHER’S A DUCK!

Banana Republics Sue United States for Unfair Business Practices!

The United States has besmirched the good name of the Banana Republic!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The banana republics of Central America today sued the United States stating that the U.S., by claiming banana republic status, is threatening their livelihoods.

“This isn’t fair” said Venezuelan president Nicolas Madero.

I’ve worked my entire life trying to turn Venezuela into a shithole.  Now Biden comes along and turns the U.S. into one. They are bigger than us.  Who will want to do business with a small banana republic when they have the United States and their 300 million people.  Who can compete with that?  I feel like a small business owner going up against Amazon!

“This just sucks” chimed in Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega.

I had a good thing going here.  Supreme power.  Economic dominance.  Money up the wazoo.  Then Biden goes and raids the opposition leader Trump’s home. That’s not even something I would think of doing. He’s playing with fire that Biden is. If he doesn’t tone down his banana republicanism I might be forced to kill some more American tourists. Not that I’ve ever killed American tourists.  Not officially anyway.

“What hell is the point of power” declared El Salvador president Nayib Bukele.

What the hell is the point of endless civil war and civilian massacres? We didn’t assassinate Archbishop Romero only to have the United States steal our thunder!  This is unfair and my fellow Central American Presidents and myself are suing America to cease and desist from further banana republic behavior. We are a tiny nation of only seven million people.  The United States has 300 million.  How can we compete?  They have the glamor. They have the Kardashians.  We have none of that.  All we have is football. Not football Americano.  Real football.  You know, where people kick a ball around and then fall on the ground screaming in pain if someone touches them.

Speaking on behalf of his father, President Biden, Hunter Biden

I Likes hookers and blow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

reassured the Central Americans that the U.S. has no intention of competing with them for banana republic status.

“We like Central America” said Biden.

I get some of my best blow from them.  And the hookers?  Muy fantastico!  You know what I like most about Central American prostitutes?  None of them are Asian.  I don’t like yellow. So you see they have nothing to worry about.  We aren’t claiming banana republic status.  All we want is to enrich ourselves and our crony capitalist friends through foreign business contacts.  And we also want to crush the opposition party. We have the man Trump. Now we just have to find the crime. So you see.  Totally not a banana republic.

From the White House President Biden brilliantly downplayed the controversy by struggling to put on his jacket.

The Ballad of Merrick Garland

We will fight Trump in the air. We will fight Trump on the land. We will fight Trump on the sea!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Safely Fighting Trump from his office
Fearless Garland will indict and raid
Garland means just what they says
This brave man Garland of the Justice Department

He’s a Democrat that’s all we know
He’s a man, America’s best
One hundred Republicans he’ll indict today
But only Trump shall he do raid

Trained to protect the Deep State
Trained to fight Trump raid to raid
Garland fights by night and day
Courage deep, from the Democrats of the Deep State

He will appear on CNN
He’s a man, the Democrat’s best
One hundred Republicans he’ll indict today
But only Melania’s wardrobe shall he do wear

Back at MSNBC a young anchor waits
Trump at last has met his fate
He has been raided to protect the Deep State
Leaving Garland this request

I’ll indict Trump for having classified documents
Or failing that indict because there’s a higher Democratic Party truth
Garland will be the man they’ll test one day
Have him raid Trump for the Democrats

Fighting Trump from the sky
Fearless FBI who raid and plunder
Men who mean to protect their civil service position
The brave men of the FBI

FBI badges on their chests
These are men, America’s best
One hundred FBI agents shall be sent by Garland
But only Trump shall they do raid

Give Merrick Garland a Medal of Freedom
Make him the MSM’s hero
He’ll be the man to take down Trump
While wearing Melania’s clothes

Feds Raid Mar-a-Lago; Seize Trump’s Toilet!

Democracy dies on the crapper!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FBI agents raided the home of former President Donald Trump, looking for evidence to tie him to the January 6th insurrection.

“We all know Trump is guilty” said Attorney General Merrick Garland.

We have the man.  Now we just have to find the crime.  That’s why the magistrate who used to work for Jeffrey Epstein signed off on the raid.  There was absolutely no quid-pro-quo.  The magistrate definitely did not authorize the raid in return for not being charged with any crimes relating to Epstein.

The FBI were reportedly looking for classified documents that had been illegally taken from the White House after Trump left office. Having searched the entire estate and finding nothing incriminating the Feds realized that one room had yet to be searched:  The Executive Washroom.

“We immediately knew the documents had to be in the toilet” said the agent in charge of the raid.

That’s what happens in the movies.  They always try to flush evidence down the john.  That’s why the FBI Academy teaches all its students how to search through toilets. We want all our agents to be familiar with internal plumbing.  Anyway, when we realized that the bathroom had not been searched we busted the door down.

After busting down the door agents were greeting by the cleaning woman, who was on the toilet in the process of evacuating her bowels.

We wanted the toilet. Naturally we are aware of different cultural traditions.  We aren’t racists after all.  We all know that Hispanic women spend a lot of time on the toilet.  Probably from all the tacos they eat.  So we took the toilet with her still sitting on it. She didn’t seem to mind but asked us if she could clock out first.  So we carried the toilet to where the time cards are kept.  Again, we want her to be paid so she can eat more tacos. It’s called cultural sensitivity.

After removing the toilet, agents took it to an FBI crime lab where a piece of paper found in the toilet was analyzed.

“After cleaning the paper up we found the phrase ‘1 Corinthians chapter 13’ written on it.” said Garland.

We have no idea what this first Corinthians 13 means.  Probably code of some sort encouraging an insurrection.  But once we had that paper it was enough to charge Trump with seditious conspiracy.  We got the bastard!  He’ll never be able to run for President again.

Garland then opened a bottle of champagne and celebrated with his agents.

Aging Socialists Sing the Glory of Capitalism!

We still believe in socialism but need money!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aging socialists Crosby, Stills and Nash have ended their war with Spotify after finding out that their dreams of a socialist workers paradise needed a cash infusion.

“We’re from the 60s” said Stephen Stills.

We believe in peace and freedom of speech.  That’s why we hate Joe Rogan and wanted to silence him.  Rogan and his free-thinking ways threaten everything. That’s why we told Spotify to remove our songs.  We knew Spotify would do as we said and the hater Joe Rogan would get his comeuppance.

However the trio were flabbergasted that Spotify accepted their desire to remove their songs and keep Joe Rogan instead.

“Doesn’t Spotify know who we are?  Don’t they know how important we are to an entire generation” said Graham Nash.

I mean come on.  Our house is a very very very fine house with two cats in the yard life used to be so hard.  I wrote that.  And I stand behind the sentiment. Banana yellow purple dogface.  Hey, is that my nurse?  Nurse!  Where are my prostate pills.  I haven’t peed since we the last time we had a hit!

From his home in a van down by the river David Crosby chimed in.

“I need money. I need it badly.”

I haven’t had someone give me money since Melissa Etheridge paid me to be a sperm donor. That was over twenty years ago. The only money I get now is from Spotify when someone downloads a song of mine. I mean I haven’t received anything from them in years but I did get a receipt once that said someone in 2019 downloaded one of my songs. Without Spotify I lose even that income.  I tried selling my liver but once they found out who I was they decided to take Keith Richards’ instead.  I had to settle for selling my spleen. It paid for two bowls of meth but a liver would have paid for four.

Sometime partner Neil Young also asked that his songs be allowed back on Spotify after losing his income stream.

 

 

 

 

 

My generation is frightened and confused by this whole streaming thing.  What is streaming?  Graham Nash said it had something to do with his prostate. What that has to do with royalty checks I don’t know. But baby needs a new mink coat. So I, temporarily mind you, decided that giving in to our capitalist values was more important than my core socialist beliefs.  Like I said this is only temporary.  Once baby gets a new mink coat  I’m removing my songs again.  Screw Joe Rogan.

From Spotify’s corporate headquarters a company spokesman had this to say about the controversy:

Since we put their music back in rotation I think we had one download from a retiree in Boca Rotan. So yeah you can say there isn’t much demand. Frankly Milli Vanilli gets more downloads.

An Anniversary And a Goodbye

What a ten years it has been!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ten years ago, Friday February 20, 2009, a date which shall live in infamy, the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked by a blogger calling himself Manhattan Infidel (then known as Manhattaninfidel.com until a disastrous database corruption in July 2013 forced me to reconstitute the blog as manhattaninfidel.org.)

When I started this blog I had no idea what the format or subject would be.  I thought at first I’d make it a hiking blog. (My knees, alas, were ten years younger then.) However by the second week of writing I had settled into the format that I would keep for the next ten years (posts five days a week satirizing politics and popular culture with the Yankees thrown in.)

And it’s been an amazing ten years. I’ve had the opportunity to interact with people I never would have if I hadn’t started this blog. (Jim in Venezuela I hope you’re okay and have made it to the safety of Columbia!) Others from as far off as Australia and Texas (LSP keep up the good fight and don’t let the Democratic Socialists take your guns away) have become regular readers of my blog.

Blogging, like relationships, takes commitment, time and energy. (Or failing those pizza and beer.)

But after ten years, 2,467 posts and approximately 1,233,500 words it is time to say goodbye.  I’ve been thinking about ending the blog for awhile now and almost did last year on my ninth anniversary but convinced myself to hang around another year.

Indeed part of me would like to continue blogging forever as the targets of opportunity to satirize have never been richer with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AKA “The Occasional Cortex”) fast becoming the future of the Democratic Socialists and our Deep State in the FBI and CIA turning themselves into the Keystone Cops with their efforts to stage a coup and overthrow the duly elected President.

Part of me would. But I also have to acknowledge the natural rhythm of events and that I am running out of things to say.

I sign off sadly but with pride at what I have been able to write the past ten years.  For those who have become regular readers or those who dropped by only once I thank you for visiting my humble share of the blogosphere.

Don’t worry though. This blog isn’t going anywhere. I have put too much time into it to just take it down. It will be up for years to come. I invite all to peruse the archives.

And who knows, I may occasionally poke my head back in and write a post if something interests me (such as the start of our second Civil War.)

As for me when I started this blog I was working for NBC News. Since May of 2016 I have been working for CBS News.  All this time in news has made me realize one thing:  I have more respect for pedophiles than I do for news anchors, reporters, producers or writers.  As it stands right now I am probably the only person in America trying to get out of television. I will continue sending out resumes and hopefully get a job far away from a television studio.

I fervently hope that our Republic founded upon the Constitution (the greatest document of human liberty ever devised by the hand of man) and a limited government will be able to survive the Deep State, the Democratic Socialists and the media.

I don’t have to tell you that things are tense in America now with the weaponization of the FBI and CIA, rogue special prosecutors and leftists who would take away our freedom and make us second class citizens.  This tension has to be released somehow and unfortunately human nature being what it is will probably be released with violence. Whether the violence is confined to a few bombings and assassinations or a widespread civil war remains to be seen.

Once again I would like to thank all who have read my blog over the years.

So it’s goodbye for now. As I head into blogging retirement instead of expending my energies writing I shall spend it watching the Yankees on TV, drinking beer, propping my feet up and looking back at ten fun years.

Goodbye for now,

The Manhattan Infidel (Manhattan Infidel not valid where prohibited by law.)
