Welcome to Insanity Wrap, your daily dose of the best of the worst. Biden’s Russian collusion is today’s big crazy.
Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap.
- Weiner comes up short
- Missing the Markle with British readers
- Introducing the Libs of TikTok
And so much more.
Before we get to the headline story about Russian Collusion, how about a quick visit from an old friend?
This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006

NFT stands for “nonfungible token,” and the short explanation is that NFTs are the latest digital means for separating fools from their money.
Leave it to Weiner to try and turn his infamous crotch shot into a money-making scheme.
Even better, leave it to Weiner to try it after the whole NTF craze already crashed.
Now that we have that awfulness out of the way, let’s move onto lighter fare, like how Presidentish Joe Biden is selling out to Russia.
Russian Collusion: Another Damn Thing We Have to Be Concerned About
Not since then-President Barack Obama whispered a message to Vladimir Putin that Obama would enjoy “more flexibility” to negotiate away our missile defenses “after my [re-]election” have we seen such catering to Moscow’s needs.
Before we get to that, a quick word about Russia.
Insanity Wrap would like nothing better than a strong Russia, once again fully part of this amazing thing called Western Civilization. That’s where Russia was — its high culture rivaled that of France — prior to the Bolshevik takeover, and where Russia seemed to be headed, albeit haltingly, in the 1990s.
But under Vladimir Putin, with his KGB-trained distrust of the West, rejoining the West hardly seems possible.
So it remains America’s sad duty to do what we can, short of war, to keep Russia contained (again) and our new friends in Eastern Europe safe.
How to do that?
- Try to get NATO to spend more on its own defense
- Promote American energy independence
- Loosen Russia’s grip on Europe’s energy needs
- Strengthen the U.S. Navy, which defends our sea communications with Europe
- Provide military aid to Ukraine
These are all goals Donald Trump pursued as president.
Presidentish Joe Biden, on the other hand:
- Biden won’t focus on NATO defence spending target as much as Trump
- Biden begins the end of fracking and destroys Keystone and 20,000 jobs
- Biden lifts US sanctions on major Russian pipeline to Germany
- The Biden Budget: Shrinks Navy Budget
- Biden Withholds $150M Of Ukraine Aid Amid Tensions
Everything Trump did or at least tried to do promoted our (and Europe’s) interests while taking a strong stance against Putin’s.
Everything Biden is doing will weaken our defenses and energy independence, fill Putin’s coffers with oil dollars, and strengthen his position versus Ukraine and our NATO allies.
If Biden were openly colluding with Putin, what would he be doing any differently?
It is with the bitterest of laughs that Insanity Wrap looks back on three-plus years of Democratic hollering about RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!

BLM activist yells racial slurs at an Asian NYPD officer.

Insanity Wrap admires the police officer’s discipline.
Mostly, though, we are forced to remind you that the anti-Asian hate (not to mention the violence) seems to be 100% located in America’s Democrat-run, woke urban centers.
If it turns out to be only 99.8%, then of course Insanity Wrap will apologize for the error.
And Now For a Brief Moment of Sanity
Meghan Markle’s first book fails to top the bestseller list: The Bench doesn’t make the top 200 on Amazon UK
It’s only at position #151 for Amazon’s book sales in this country, too.
Well done, everybody. Keep ignoring these attempts to cash in on borrowed fame.

Insanity Wrap apologizes for what you’re about to see, but if you’ve made it this far into today’s column, clearly you’re made of hardy materials and are of strong character.
But it was only this morning that we first encountered the Libs of Tik Tok Twitter account, and we quickly got so deep in the weeds that we feared we’d be late filing this report.
Before you click over and go neck-deep like we were, Insanity Wrap must tell you something serious.
The young lady above, with her Early-Helena-Bonham-Carter-On-Acid look and her My-Sexuality-Is-The-Most-Interesting-Thing-About-Me-So-I’m-Really-Quite-Tedious vibe, is the closest thing we found to sanity on the entire timeline.
You’ve been warned.
Exit Question: Now that TikTok — a Communist China-owned firm — allows collection of faceprint and voiceprints in the U.S., are we raising an entire generation subject to Beijing blackmail?
Your Daily Dose of Mandated Unity
A whopping 71 percent of Democrats in the United States want healthy people to stay home “as much as possible,” even as vaccinations soar and new coronavirus infections have plummeted, according to a new survey from Gallup.
In contrast, 87 percent of Republicans surveyed and 64 percent of independents said it was time for people to start living normally after more than a year of pandemic shutdowns and working from home.
If there are any Insanity Wrap readers with evidence that progressivism is not a mental disorder — or worse — we’d love to see it.
One More Thing…
Whoever did this is going to stay after class…
…so we can buy them a drink.
That’s a Wrap for today.
Come back tomorrow for another Insanity Wrap…
…assuming we make it that long.
