Send in the Clowns

Updated: Nov 24, 2022

Have you ever been to an actual three-ring circus? My dad took me to the Barnum & Bailey Circus when I was little and I've never forgotten it. I remember being transfixed watching three separate acts taking place at one time in the three rings under "the big top." A lion tamer would be cracking his whip at the big cats in one ring, trained elephants would be performing in another ring, and the terrifying high wire act would be in the center ring.

With so many dangerous things taking place at once, there would occasionally be an accident. The ringmaster would try to divert the audience's attention by ordering the circus hands in the wings to "send in the clowns." This was the circus' way to divert everyone's eyes away from the disaster and keep the audience in their seats to avoid a stampede for the exits.

Can you see any parallels to the three-ring circus we're living in today? The difference is that nobody has to send in any clowns--they walk among us.

There are a number of stories from just this past week that prove we're living in a clown world. These stories would have previously made my head explode; but the longer things go on, I just have to laugh.

This is an interactive blog post. Turn your sound on, follow the prompts and enjoy the clown show!

Okay, let's get started.

Our first story comes from the state of Washington where a biological male track athlete (who now identifies as a female) is dominating girls’ cross-country competition. Running as a boy last year, he finished in 72nd place. Now, running as a girl, he has two victories in the 5000-meter event.

A father complained that his daughter is now “competing against a male for scholarships.” He further lamented, “And we can’t even say anything. You can’t even approach it in a nice way without being labeled a hateful bigot. You will get threats against you,”

Get over it, Dad. An op-ed in the Washington Post even went so far as to argue that men in women’s sports could actually be a good thing for young girls because,...(get ready) teaches them how to lose gracefully.

San Francisco has launched a guaranteed income program for low-income transgenders. The program will dole out $1,200 per month for 18 months to qualified low-income trans people.

Applications are now being accepted. Applicants are asked to fill out a 10-page online questionnaire and are invited to choose between 97 genders, 18 pronouns and 19 options for sexual orientation. They are told to "check all that apply." Here is a sample page from the application that lists only some of the gender choices:

Included on another page of the application (not shown here) is an option for the gender "xenogender"-- a gender that surpasses all human understanding.

On Thursday, November 17, 2022, House Republicans announced an investigation into Joe Biden and his relationship to Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings.

MSNBC anchor, Mehdi Hasan, was quick to whine and cry that House Democrats NEVER investigated the Trump family when Democrats held the majority during Trump's presidency.

Here's a honk for you, Mehdi!

Oh, wait!'s the entire staff of MSNBC reporting for work!


The Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, once again testified before the House committee on Homeland Security on November 15, 2022. And, once again, he claimed that the "border is secure."

Over 200,000 illegals walked across the border in each of the last four months making a total of nearly 5 MILLION illegal crossings under the Biden administration--the worst in history. In addition to human trafficking, the Mexican cartels are smuggling guns, money, and the deadly drug fentanyl across the border. According to the FBI, a recent vehicle seizure in Phoenix yielded enough fentanyl to kill the equivalent of the entire state of Pennsylvania.

For completely denying reality, Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas gets his picture in the Clown World Hall of Fame.

Go ahead!


Texas Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee has proclaimed that the U.S. needs reparations for the country's past sins of slavery in order to...(drum roll, please)...slow the spread of COVID.


An overweight, transgender biological male just won a local Miss America pageant.

Brian Nguyen (pronounced Bree-Ann) says he advocates for "marginalized women."

Is it fair for a man to compete in a women's "beauty" pageant and rob healthy, real women of the opportunity to receive a scholarship and advance in the competition? Does he represent the "ideal vision of American womanhood?" Or did he win because the label "trans" is just more woke virtue-signaling?


Instead of concentrating on actual learning, the National Education Association (NEA), the nation's largest teachers' union, has doubled down on teaching their woke agenda to children.

The union has authored an official "Pronoun Guide," which directs its members on how to use various preferred pronouns and to help them grow accustomed to including one's pronouns on nametags.

The guide explains that "misgendering results in marginalization and communicates that a person’s identity is not being seen or respected. Practice using the pronouns a transgender or nonbinary person requests … yes, even plural ‘they.’ It’s a show of respect."

The guide features a table graphic that separates different pronouns by their respective case to inform the reader how to use them in a sentence properly. The last three lines are a guide for using "ze," "zim," "zir," "zirs," and "zirself," which are pronounced similarly to "they" and "them" pronouns.

Here's my new nametag:


And this just in!

Yesterday, November 21, 2022, CBS News FINALLY admitted that the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop are true.

The news of the Hunter Biden laptop broke before the 2020 presidential election, but mainstream news media and social media squashed the story to protect Joe Biden in the run-up to the election. The media ran around with their hair on fire screaming, "Right-wing conspiracy theory!" and "Russian disinformation!"

Now, CBS is suddenly in a hurry to tell their readers that the story is true, since the Republicans just announced they will be investigating the Biden family's corruption.

(This is Hunter Biden in one of the pictures on his laptop. Can you imagine the media meltdown if this was one of Trump's kids?)

Listed below are some of the headlines that you DIDN'T see in the U.S. mainstream media. These were all published by the U.K.'s Daily Mail [click each headline to see the entire article]:

But these stories were given precious little coverage by America's most venerable news organizations. That's the sad state of the media today. If you want to know what's going on in your own country, you have to read it in the foreign press.

So, congratulations to the Clown Broadcasting System on your in-depth news coverage!

To borrow a line from the 1975 song, Send in the Clowns by Judy Collins:

Send in the clowns...don't bother, they're here.


“Don’t blame a clown for acting like a clown. Ask yourself why you keep going to the circus.”

WOW this was different but still extremely informative. In the past I have used other not so nice words to describe the media, Biden and others but from here on “Clowns” will be my favorite word to describe all of the idiots in charge today.
