We have long argued that the definition of a leftist is the ability to hold mutually-exclusive thoughts simultaneously. Oh, and that the rules don’t apply to them. Here we have both.
This week Joe threw a party for Emmanuel Macron, the WEF stooge who is also president of France. He pulled out all the stops and created his own Versailles on the lawn to seat the 300-strong, celebrity-studded guest list.

Only the best for Macron, Dr. Jill oversaw delivery of 200 Maine lobsters, without argument a fine American delicacy.
200 live lobsters were shipped from Maine to the White House yesterday morning to prep the butter-poached lobster course of tomorrow night’s State Dinner … per Chef Comerford. @FLOTUS in background pic.twitter.com/Lvt6jBMapC— Kate Bennett (@KateBennett_DC) November 30, 2022
But doesn’t the left hate Maine Lobsters because of the declining numbers of right whales? It doesn’t matter that the Maine lobstermen are paragons of sustainability and good husbandry – the eco-nuts have declared them Enemy No. 1. Billionaire Bezos has even banned their catch from the Birkenstock-wearers favorite grocery store, Whole Foods. This has impacted fragile fishing communities along the Maine coast.

Austin-based Whole Foods Market said recently Maine Lobster nets? Are killing Right Whales? Except #1. 60 foot whales with 30 foot girth don't swim in 12-18 feet of water? #2. Lobster are not caught in nets. #3 Lobster Traps are 3 feet x 1.5 rectangles.— Ron Doc Moody (@RonDocMoody1) November 29, 2022

Oh but wait, let’s follow the money. The other econuts obsession. Wind farms. Do you see it yet?
A few points:— Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) November 29, 2022
1. No whale has been harmed by Maine's lobster industry.
2. This is all about the offshore wind industry clearing out lobster industry objections to offshore wind turbines.
3. Woke @WholeFoods is contemptible, except for its produce. https://t.co/QH8XeKgIl6
