It’s over. After 20 years, finally and officially over.
The war in Afghanistan is done. In what no one will recognize as a truly bi-partisan effort, President Biden officially ended the war and set the date for the troops to come home. Paying off on a promise President Trump made during his campaign in 2016 and set in motion in 2020.
As 24 and 22 year veterans ourselves, of course Hupp and I are biased and all in favor.
Presidents Bush and Obama both made threats/promises to get the troops back but it was Presidents Trump and then Biden who managed to actually get it done.
This is clearly not getting nearly the play it deserves. Go figure. Neither side can manage to turn it into a political missile to fire at the other so of course no lip service from the “media”.
Not a problem. As per usual, Tony and I will carry the water for those so called professionals who have long since forgotten what professionalism means.
It couldn’t get worse for the NY Governor could it?
Hell yeah it can. And he’s more than willing to make it worse for himself. Oh Andrew, why do you have to be the way you are? Turns out his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, is in on it; taking special benefits for himself and his family.
Also tonight! Friend of the podcast Joe Biden, AKA The President, does his first press conference. Cringe worthy at times, decent at others. Tony and I break it all down for you.
Fun with numbers. It was one of those weeks folks. And it started bad from the jump.
For future reference we are on episode 318. For some reason our lazy intern keeps sliding in a 217 or a 213 here and there. Rest assured she’ll be dealt with. Also be assured no matter the number, the product is as good as always.
Speaking of numbers…
How many times did President Biden trip up the stairs in one go? That would be three. How many times was it replayed on FOX News? That would be eleventy billion. How many times did MSNBC show Trump and Pence tripping the same way? Well it’s more than the other number, but I’ve run out of catchy names for it.
On the plus side of the numbers issue, and in line with our continuing effort to be more positive this year…
That’s 57 year old Kathy Jacobs below, who appeared at an open call for older models for Sports Illustrated’s swim suit edition. We here at UF/UF the Podcast applaud their choice and believe firmly in beauty being in the eye of the beholder. We behold her to be stunning.
Not a fan of numbers? No worry. The only number you need to know is 1. As in how many clicks you need to hear Tony and I break all this bullshit down in episode 318.
Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield answers the question of whether or not we are alone in the universe. Reporting on his Instagram feed that he and his wife, and a shit ton of other Texans, saw a UFO near their home in Texas. While not a Browns fan like Hupp, I am a Mayfield fan. I believe him and I await our alien overlords.
There is a different kind of alien invasion is on the horizon and no one wants to talk about it. Thousands of unaccompanied kids are reportedly moving towards the US southern border to find a new home in the land of the free. The last time Biden was in the government as VP the administration dropped off thousands of unaccompanied kids to various health departments in various states in the middle of the night.
How will now President Biden handle this seemingly similar issue?
You gotta click, if for no other reason than to hear Hupp threaten Aliens for trying to abduct his QB.
The Rover has landed, the Rover has landed. During the live taping of the podcast today the Rover landed on the Martian surface in spectacular fashion. Not only did we get live, color video, but we got sound as well. An amazing achievement.
We talk about that and more on today’s edition of UF/UF The Podcast.
But you gotta click.
UF/UF 314: We’ll always have Mars
Behold! The first live shots from the Martian planet!
Man who the blue hell knows what to believe anymore. We know Joe Biden will be sworn in on Jan 20th, which is in 3 days. Or do we?
The last few posts on Parlor I read, before that site was removed by its owners, seem to claim very confidently that it will be Trump getting sworn in again. Do they know something we don’t? Hard to say really.
The last post on I read on Twitter claims the My Pillow guy met with Trump this past Friday, advising the President to declare martial law. It seems “big tech” has been suppressing the fact that the Chinese, not the Italians, or the Venezuelans as he originally claimed, altered the election and Trump won by millions. According to Mike Lindell, the My Pillow guy, he knows all of this because it’s all over the internet. Uh… Mike, you mean the internet “Big Tech” is supposedly suppressing?
So will Trump declare martial law or not? Was it the Chinese or the Italians, or the Venezuelans or the god damn Martians? Will the vaccine make you a zombie? Is Bill Gates putting Nano-technology tracking devices into your blood through the vaccine? Who knows. Your guess is as good as ours.
UF/UF 312: Conspiracies to the left of me, Conspiracies to the right of me…
The week has been a year long. It was only 6 days ago that we heard Trump on the phone with Georgia election officials and the GA Secretary of State, trying to force him to rig the election results of that state. And we don’t even cover that on this episode.
That’s how crazy the week has been.
Then we watched in real time, live on TV, the President of the United States call the in-coming President illegitimate, shame his own VP Mike Pence, and then encourage a mob to go to the capitol to “help the weaker Republicans in congress.” Then America’s mayor, (and equally idiotic lawyer), Rudy Giuliani said we need “Trial by Combat”.
The crowd gave Trump and Rudy what they wanted.
Then we watched in horror as an Air Force veteran along with hundreds of others, seduced by ridiculous lies about stolen elections and stupid conspiracy theories about deep state actors, break into our center of government to attack a system that has stood the test of time for over 200 years. She paid for that terrible decision with her life.
That horror was followed by seditionists and traitors wearing MAGA gear, attack and eventually kill Capitol Police Officer and National Guard Staff Sargent Brian Sicknick, reportedly beating him with a fire extinguisher.
All live in real time.
It’s been a week of weeks. And I’m afraid we may not be done.
