Jordan Peterson is suspended from Twitter for "hateful conduct." Specifically, this hateful conduct consisted of referring to Ellen Page by her actual, real name, Ellen Page, instead of her delusionary bid-for-attention name of "Elliott."

Incidentally, the Daily Wire just signed Jordan Peterson to "DailyWire+," which is like CNN+ except for the part where it still exists.

And the big news, to me, is that they have 890,000 subscribers, who are paying something like $7 to $15 per month.

Now I think they just had a short-lived spike as everyone signed up to see What Is a Woman (and I guess I'll watch the Gina Carano movie before I cancel), but still, that is a big fluffy pile of money.

Senator Patrick Leahy, who is 82 years young old, broke his hip and will undergo surgery.

Supposedly he is expected to make a full recovery. I dunno. That sounds like a pretty major surgery of a pretty big bone for a very old man.

He's set to retire at the end of his term.

Democrat Representative Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, who frequently complains about the party's leftward lurch and the havoc it's playing on her chances for reelection, says she doesn't want Biden campaigning for her.

Does anyone believe this decrepit lich husk is going to be hustling around the campaign trail, anyway?

Because I don't.

Oh, I've got it: Maybe they'll say they want to "reach the young people" and really "take advantage of our new technological age" and so Biden will be doing a lot of Zoom Campaigning or something.

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) has no interest in President Joe Biden campaigning for her, despite her being up for reelection in a competitive race.

Appearing on Fox News' America's Newsroom on Tuesday, Dana Perino pointed out that some have called the race to represent Virginia's 7th District a "toss-up" and asked whether Spanberger would call in the big guns by having a sitting president campaign with her. Spanberger dismissed the idea.

"I intend to do that campaigning myself. I am a candidate. It is my name on the ballot. Certainly, when I first ran, I ran in an R+7 district and I won that seat by getting out and speaking to voters," the congresswoman said.

I betcha Dana Perino "brunches" with Spanberger and other Democrat ladies.

A Burger King employee didn't miss a day of work in 27 years. As a reward on the 27th anniversary of his employment, his corporate overlords gave him... a gift bag containing a couple of candy bars and other crap they found in the back seat of a hobo's car.

He's now got a bunch of job offers from more appreciative employers, as well as a GoFundMe others set up for him, which has already brought in $200,000.

G7 figureheads were goofing on Vladimir Putin for his various Shirtless-on-Horseback KGB Teen Beat photo shoots, but Putin responded Trumpishly.

I think this finally proves... collusion, you guys.

As they sat down for talks, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson jested that G7 leaders could take their clothes off to "show that we're tougher than Putin" amid Russia-West tensions over Moscow's military action in Ukraine.

Canadian premier Justin Trudeau joked that Western leaders could try to match Putin's naked torso pictures with a "bare-chested horseback riding display," one of his widely publicized athletic adventures.


Speaking to reporters, Putin retorted that, unlike him, Western leaders abuse alcohol and don't do sports.

"I don't know how they wanted to get undressed, above or below the waist," he said. ""But I think it would be a disgusting sight in any case."

He noted that to look good "it's necessary to stop abusing alcohol and other bad habits, do physical exercise and take part in sports."

I mean: Even the Devil sometimes mixes in truth with his lies, right?

Do you think Castreau has moobs and puffy nips? Because I do.

Madison Cornbread is accused of having made another false statement. Supposedly a case of her telephone-game gossip-mongering gone wrong.

Ms. Cornbread says she heard from Stacey who heard it from Macy that Giuliani had met with Jeff Clark -- the current main target of the J6 S.S. -- at the White House.

It appears to be a case of mistaken identity because Giuliani had met with a Justin Clark at the White House.

From Sister Toldjah at RedState:

Friends co-creator Marta Kaufman says she's totally "embarrassed" to have made a show based on her own (glamorized) experiences and totally should have made one about all the different ethnicities in America.

The woman behind "Friends" is trying to make things right.

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, co-creator Marta Kauffman addressed the decades of criticism the classic sitcom received for its lack of diversity among its leads.

Despite feeling for years that the criticism unfairly singled "Friends" out, calling it "difficult and frustrating," Kauffman's perspective has shifted in recent years.

That shift led her to recently pledge $4 million to Brandeis University, her alma mater, to establish an endowed professorship in the school's African and African-American studies department.

"I've learned a lot in the last 20 years," she explained. "Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy. It's painful looking at yourself in the mirror. I'm embarrassed that I didn't know better 25 years ago. "

What inspired Kauffman's change of mindset on the issue was the reckoning over racism and police violence against Black people in recent years.

"It was after what happened to George Floyd that I began to wrestle with my having bought into systemic racism in ways I was never aware of," she said. "That was really the moment that I began to examine the ways I had participated. I knew then I needed to course-correct."

Well, if you really mean it, you'll spend hundreds of millions of dollars to digitally insert new black characters into the show.

But I don't think you do mean it. I think this pittance of $4 million is meant to shut everyone up so you don't have to do real Restorative Justice and put in new diverse Jar-Jar Binks characters into old Friends episodes.
