Nation observes 0 seconds of silence to read the names of those killed by Trump supporters on January 6th

january 6th commemoration
Following President Biden's speech yesterday, the nation observed a moment of silence lasting exactly 0 seconds long as they read the names of those who suffered death at the hands of supporters of former President Donald J. Trump.

Vice President Kamala Harris thanked Biden for his bold speech and took to the podium to announce the moment of silence. An intern then reverently handed her a folded piece of paper.

Several media pundits watched as Harris carefully unfolded the paper and stared at it blankly for a moment before waving the intern back. The vice president could be heard whispering, "This is blank."

Grieving AOC lays memorial wreath at her grave on January 6th

United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez visited Woodlawn Cemetery this morning to grieve in quiet dignity at her own grave on the 1-year anniversary of her death on January 6. She was seen openly weeping and tearing her clothes by the photo crew she brought with her.

AOC, who was killed in the Capitol's House Chamber by murderous Trump supporters, left a wreath where her body had been peacefully laid to rest. Though she made no official statements, eyewitness testimony claims she "looked mournfully off into the distance" as if contemplating the fleeting brevity of life.

"She just looked so brave and helpless," said Jim Acosta from the scene. "I could see that she was clearly hurting. I don't know how she gets up in the morning, especially since she's already dead. What a fighter."

Once her camera crew confirmed they had several good shots, she wiped her eyes, slowly walked to her brand-new Tesla, and drove off — leaving a crew of professional mourners in her wake.

Visitors to the cemetery are advised to socially distance and mask up while mourning the loss of America's greatest congresswoman. For those mourning remotely, a contribution can be made to AOC's 2022 campaign.

White man callously attacks Native American Woman

Musk/Warren

Elon Musk • Elizabeth Warren
U.S. — In a heated exchange on Twitter, a powerful white man viciously attacked Elizabeth Warren — a noble Cherokee squaw and Senator from Massachusetts.

With a tear slowly rolling down her cheek, Warren said:
"This violent verbal attack on me was literally a hate crime. The white man continues to oppress my people by resisting the government's efforts to tax them into oblivion and waste all their money on spending bills that we write to pay off our campaign donors. This basically makes him a freeloader."
The white attacker — named Elon Musk — simply responded with cruel memes showing Elizabeth Warren wearing eagle feathers and war paint to mock her proud heritage. He did, however, confirm that he will continue to pay her salary, in addition to the salaries of half of Washington D.C.

UPDATE: Certain details reported initially in this story are inaccurate, as we have confirmed Elon Musk is actually African American.

RED ALERT: this is not a joke. Elon Musk sat down with The Babylon Bee for an in-depth interview on wokeness, Elizabeth Warren, the Metaverse, and how the left is killing comedy.

23 Covid-skeptic memes to kick off 2022!

memes 2022
Where to begin? While things have much improved, and the narrative has taken a huge battering to the point of collapse, we're still in a surreal limbo of people defending a nonsensical narrative, because they can't accept the world we live in...

So perhaps it's better not to begin anywhere, but rather to spell out how it'll end:

I predict 2022 will herald a historically unprecedented victory for meme-based warfare. Millions upon millions will take to the very handheld devices shackling them to their new normal dystopia, open up their photo-editing apps and generate hilarious meme upon hilarious meme, to the point where the NWO overlords simply have to hold their hands up and say 'Fair enough! They won fair and square! I don't need all these billions anyway, let's learn to share again!'.

AOC claims Ron DeSantis kidnapped her and held her hostage in Miami and now she is dead

AOC in captivity in plague-infested Florida
After photos emerged of AOC in South Florida enjoying brunch free of COVID restrictions and without wearing a mask, the congresswoman quickly clarified that she had actually been taken to Florida against her will by Governor Ron DeSantis.

"Ron DeSantis kidnapped me!" cried AOC to reporters. "He captured me and dragged me to Florida and held me hostage! And then he killed me. He killed me with Omicron. And now I am dead."

The media is now demanding answers from DeSantis. Additionally, the DOJ announced they will be sending resources to investigate the Florida governor for kidnapping and homicide.

"DeSantis is just another Republican who is creepily obsessed with AOC," said CNN anchor Brian Stelter between tearful sobs. "And he proved that by kidnapping and murdering her in cold blood. This is all Tucker Carlson's fault."

Further investigations found that AOC didn't actually die but was just knocked out from too many mimosas.

Due to supply chain issues Democrats recommend mailing in your votes for 2024 now

Vodka Nan advises on supply chain voting
The next Presidential election is three years away, but Democratic leaders in Congress aren't wasting any time getting out the vote.

"Republicans tricked Biden into creating a supply chain crisis so your vote wouldn't make it in time," said Pelosi in a statement. "You can fix that by mailing in your ballots for Biden right now! As long as they're postmarked by this week, they should make it by 2024."

When asked what exactly voters should be sending in since advance ballots were not available due to supply chain congestion, Pelosi explained, "Just write it on a napkin or something and we'll count it. And if Republicans object we'll just tell everyone they hate democracy."

Concerns over the failing health of Joe Biden were dismissed by Pelosi, who insisted he will be the presidential candidate in 2024. "If you ask a question like that again I will call you a Republican and you'll never work in journalism again," she added.

At publishing time, Sen. Bernie Sanders expressed interest in challenging Biden for the presidency with a grassroots style mail-in vote in which all ballots are personally dropped off at one of his three houses.

White House decorated with touching 2021 Christmas message: 'YOU WILL DIE'

The nation's capital grew even more festive as the White House unveiled its facade lit with a resplendent light display spelling out the touching message, "YOU WILL DIE."

The holiday message of light and hope comes at a dark time for our nation, as millions of Americans have chosen to ignore scientifically rigorous government lobbyists and refused to get vaccinated against a virus with a 100% mortality rate.

"Our country needs a message of hope from its leadership during this dark, deadly, perilous, disastrous, corpse-strewn winter season," said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, "That's why the President chose this message, so all Americans can hold their heads high...unless they're unvaccinated, in which case they will surely die."

Biden has reportedly already tasked staffers to prepare a New Year's Eve fireworks show that will fill the sky with the message, "ALL IS LOST."

New York restaurant adds voting booth so they can allow people in without ID

In an effort to circumvent the city's vaccine passport regulations, a midtown eatery has installed a voting booth and designated itself as a polling place so it can allow in anyone without any ID at all.

Mikey's Eats did a brisk business on the day, as the front of the restaurant was crowded by protestors for/against vaccines, for/against vaccine mandates, and for/against vote fraud. The protestors frequently lost track of who they wanted to yell at, changed sides, and dejectedly walked into the restaurant to console themselves with the chef's special avocado burger.

A lawyer for the ACLU was also present. He spent the day alternating between threatening the restaurant with lawsuits, congratulating them for their commitment to democracy, and openly weeping.

Owner Mikey DeCarlo said, "A guy from [Mayor] de Blasio's office came by and said he was going to shut us down, except for the voting booth part which he said he would defend to the death. Then he asked if he could get an avocado burger in the voting booth. He was crying a lot."

Presidential address lasts hours as Biden keeps trying to say 'Omicron' correctly

Biden christmas address confused
The presidential address to the nation was intended to be a brief message of hope and resilience for Americans facing a possible COVID-19 surge, but ended up lasting hours as President Biden kept trying to pronounce "Omicron" correctly.

"I'll tell you what, America's unvaccinated lower class are in for a real whuppin' with the surge of this new variant they call Omnomicromicon...Omnicormorant, Obercrombie, Omnibus, Comic-Con," said the leader of the free world, squinting into the teleprompter, "Oblong Prawn, Amish Pawn, Auger Spawn..."

An hour into Biden's attempt to say a simple, three-syllable word, some members of the White House press corps could be heard snoring, and the video feed began tilting upward toward the ceiling as the camera operator dozed off.

Hope returned to the press room after three hours, though, as many thought Biden had correctly enunciated the name of the mild variant, but staffers clarified that he had actually said, "Balmy Cob," followed by, "Otter Crop, Mommy Clod, Clammy Lawn, Only Fawns, Olmec's Crop Top..."

Sources expect Biden's address to be completed by the time the next variant is announced.

Hillary Clinton reportedly considering losing again

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton
The beltway was buzzing this week as rumors spread that Hillary Clinton was seriously considering another humiliating loss in the 2024 presidential election.

As a former First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and person who absolutely had nothing to do with the death of Vince Foster, Mrs. Clinton is still considered one of the leading lights among top Democrats, with approval ratings above even the sitting senile President and embarrassingly unqualified Vice President whom everybody hates.

ITT Tech Political Science Professor Glenn Measure commented, "Again and again, public opinion polls show that vast majorities of people would choose Hillary Clinton as the person they would most want to see the Presidency dangled in front of, only to have it yanked away in the most painful and humiliating way possible."

Additional speculation included who Mrs. Clinton would lose to. Some of the most-discussed possibilities included Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Elon Musk, Elon Musk's robot vacuum cleaner, and several varieties of rocks common to the Washington DC area. Said Professor Measure, "Hillary's name will continue to be mentioned because she carries an aura of inevitability. Crushing, devastating, hilarious inevitability.
