Insanity Wrap needs to know: When is an actor who played a bunch of tough guys actually a tough guy?
Answer: When he’s leaving deranged and abusive voicemails for his ex-assistant or yelling at his driver for getting lost, we suppose. And that’s about it.
Before we get to the sordid details, a quick preview of today’s Wrap.
Crybullies go after Jordan Peterson (again)
Seattle pulls the trigger and actually defunds the police
Please pass the gravy and the lecture on transgenderism
And so much more.
Shall we begin?
This Is Not a Sane World, Exhibit #1,000,006

Here’s one Democratic operative telling another Democratic operative that Democratic operatives are not actually Democratic operatives.
And they say we’re the ones living in a bubble.
Crybullies in Action
More tears and loathing from our self-appointed Stasi Youth:
Dr. Jordan Peterson’s new book brought staff at Penguin Random House to actual tears. His new book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life, announced on Monday, comes three years after, 12 Rules for Life, which was a massive bestseller. The announcement of the new work filled employees with sadness and concern and they cried to the publisher to not let the publication go forward.
According to Vice, the employees confronted management at a town hall regarding the company’s decision to publish the book. Four of these employees spoke to Vice regarding the town hall and the dramatic scene of dismayed employees.
Plus: “One employee said, ‘people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.’”
Oh do please grow up.
Insanity Wrap makes the Easy Call: Not one of these crybullies has ever read or listened to Peterson, and only know of him through what other crybullies have told them about Peterson, even though they’ve never read or listened to Peterson, either.
Insanity Wrap says with this confidence because if crybullies actually read or listened to Peterson, they wouldn’t be crybullies anymore.
Going home for thanksgiving/holidays and being presented with a PowerPoint on gender… can’t think of much better !! pic.twitter.com/iJqdjLsYEU

This is worse than having a perpetually-broke cousin who chose the holiday season to try selling Amway products to anyone who would listen and even to a few who wouldn’t.
Insanity Wrap took yesterday’s Thanksgiving thoughts about pushy progressives, and under our secret identity as Stephen Green/VodkaPundit, turned them into a Right Angle segment with our colleagues Bill Whittle and Scott Ott.
Pajama Boy will not get the last word. Not on this holiday. Not on our watch.
But mostly we’re reposting this here today so that more people might hear what Scott had to say on the topic, which we found quite moving.
Your Daily Dose of Mostly Peaceful Protest
How about that: Peaceful protest that is actually 100% peaceful.
The president of the Seattle Police Officers Guild, Mike Solan, wasn’t quite as excited about the vote, referring to the council as “naive” and warned that the response to calls coming in to 911 would take longer to respond to.
“You’re going to see crime rise, we’re already seeing increased homicide rates that we haven’t seen in decades,” Solan stated.
Can you really blame cops for leaving? They clearly know they aren’t appreciated and are hated by large segments of the population. Cops in Seattle also know that if something goes sideways, they won’t be able to count on city officials to have their back.
It isn’t necessary for a city like Seattle to actually defund the police.
As Insanity Wrap noted weeks and weeks ago, if you’re looking to encourage criminality, all City Hall has to do is demoralize the police.
We were right on that call, as violence and crime have shot way up in those cities which (so far) had only threatened to defund the police.
Seattle is doing both. The results will be as awful as they were easy to predict.
Seattle residents are about to get it good and hard, just like they wanted.
YouTube/Google has the power to censor anyone and dictate your politics by curating the information you are allowed to consume.
Nothing will be done to change this.
— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) November 25, 2020
That’s certainly true with a corporatist like Joe Biden in office, which Insanity Wrap understands was the entire point of Google putting its fat thumb on the scale of the election.
Section 230 of the CDA was written more than 20 years ago, in order to protect small websites from legal harassment. Having been the proprietor of a few such websites back in the day, Insanity Wrap was once grateful for Section 230.
Today, Section 230 is abused by multibillion-dollar behemoths so that they can own and control the digital flow of information without worrying about legal repercussions.
The Digital-Democrat Complex is far more dangerous and powerful than the Military-Industrial Complex ever was — and with much more sinister ambition, too.
Insanity Wrap hates to tell you this, but it’s going to be a long, difficult fight to undo this mess.
The craziest person in the world today is Robert De Niro, who seems to believe that he’s one of the tough guys he plays as an actor.
As an actor, De Niro is a national treasure.
But Insanity Wrap finds it necessary in this holiday season to remind Mr. De Niro that he is not actually a young, up-and-coming mob boss. Nor is he a retired CIA assassin, an abusive boxer, a daring bank robber, a ruthless casino manager, or a psychopathically obsessed ex-con.
That’s a Wrap for today.
Come back tomorrow for another Insanity Wrap…
…assuming we make it that long.

Democrat Voters Are Already Having Buyers Remorse In Georgia
With the Democrat Senate wins in the state, greedy Georgia voters could already feel that $2000 in their pockets. More free money just for electing Democrats. What could be simpler? Yes, they didn’t earn the money, and yes the Democrat stand on the issue was tantamount to a bribe, granted- as was the final stand of the two Republicans. But hey, now that the votes are in the $2000 is on the way, right? Wrong.
Joe Biden wants the amount to be $2000 in total, not in addition. As most Americans already have received $600, that makes the next check only for $1400. But that’s not what Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff promised and viciously campaigned on. Vote for us, they said, get the cash.
It recalls the line from Benjamin Franklin, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” Well, “the people” (such a nasty concept) have been voting themselves money since Ben’s day. So perhaps he went a little drama queen on us there. But the underlying sentiment is spot on.
FNC: “Georgia Democrats have reportedly already begun fuming over their two new senators, the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, who were sworn in Wednesday by Vice President Kamala Harris, according to a new report. Both men narrowly won hard-fought races against Republican incumbents in the Peach State, winning control of the Senate for the Democrats in the process. But a major issue raised by critics is that President Biden espoused a coronavirus relief plan that would send $1,400 checks to many Americans – while Warnock and Ossoff campaigned on a $2,000 promise.”
“Warnock and Ossoff made it a point to endorse and exclusively say ‘$2,000 checks,’” Georgia Democrat Oscar Zaro told Mediaite. “A lot of the people in my district voted blue in the runoff for two main reasons. One: Loeffler and Perdue denying us relief during COVID while profiting millions themselves; and two, $2,000 checks.”

Florida Is New HQ Of The MAGA Movement
Former President Donald Trump remains iffy on a 2024 return, but one thing is for sure: His new home of Florida will be “Trump Headquarters,” where he will manage the “Make America Great Again” movement that he started in 2015.
“Florida,” said former top aide Stephen Miller, “is really the perfect place to be the new HQ of the MAGA movement and a launching pad for the president’s next endeavor.”
While there have been many reports that the president, his family, and some top aides are moving to the Palm Beach area to be near him for support and friendship, insiders revealed to Secrets that there is a blueprint to run the political operation from there.
Initially, the plan is to play a role in the 2022 midterm elections, recruiting candidates to run in key House and Senate races and likely in Republican primaries against sitting members who voted to impeach Trump.
Today, @POTUS pledged to be a president for all Americans. It’s unclear how all Americans are served by opening travel from terror hot spots, proposing a giant amnesty, or halting the installation of security barriers along the Southwest border.
— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) January 20, 2021
After that, and should he decide not to run in 2024, Trump wants to play the role of “kingmaker” and help choose the GOP nominee. He’s also looking at building a “Patriot Party.”
Said presidential historian and Trump expert Doug Wead, “If he wants to be a factor, he will be a factor.”
Aides suggested that Trump’s operation, now at his Palm Beach Mar-a-Lago resort, will be a revolving door of influence-makers and GOP officials. In addition to his daughters moving there, there are former aides such as Jared Kushner’s right hand Avi Berkowitz, the administration’s former special representative for international negotiations. There is also a media cadre that he talks to, including Rush Limbaugh, Tucker Carlson, and Newsmax boss Chris Ruddy.
“I absolutely think it’ll be Trump HQ, whether that’s for more kind of grassroots political influence and endorsements, a more high-dollar fundraising/PAC focus, or a hybrid of both. I think it will definitely be HQ for him and his team,” said political consultant and former Trump campaign Florida fundraiser Blair Brandt.
Unclear is whether the Trump corporation will uproot from New York and move to Florida. New York recently moved to cut ties with Trump’s organization.
Welcome home President Trump! https://t.co/sR32xGyK5d

Brandt, who is also a personal adviser to Lara Trump, the wife of Trump’s son Eric, said he would encourage a move. In addition to Florida being more welcoming to conservatives, he said that the state is also a good business haven.
“I think symbolically and practically, there’s no reason for them to be dealing with hostile agencies, attorneys generals, governors, and mayors up there when they have so much support and love down here. If they’re going to stimulate an economy right now with the types of jobs, revenues, and exposure they bring to an area, it should be in a place that kind of has their back and is more of a free, deregulated, and conservative environment with strong Republican leadership,” he told us.
Miller told us that Trump has much more to do politically, though he didn’t hint at which direction the 45th president would take.
“He leaves with the certain knowledge that he put everything you have into the mission,” said Miller. “This movement is beginning. This movement is a young movement. It’s still in its infancy and the president — his own journey is still only begun.”
Wead, who has written two books on Trump, said he would not be surprised if Trump ran again.
He compared Trump to former President Teddy Roosevelt, who ran after retiring. “Roosevelt left office but soon resented former President Taft, who didn’t do it the way T.R. wanted it. So, T.R. came back and ran again. That possibility hangs over the head of any Republican who wants to try in 2024. As you know, T.R. split the party and actually won more votes than Taft, the incumbent GOP president, giving the election to Woodrow Wilson. Trump can win or be a spoiler,” he said.

Sanders’ Mitten-Maker: My Business Plunged Because We Get Taxed To The Nth Degree
The Bernie Sanders supporter who made the mittens Sanders wore to President Biden’s inauguration, mittens made famous by a photo of the democratic socialist senator sitting with his arms and legs crossed during the proceedings, revealed in an interview that she doesn’t “have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it. Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree.”
In March 2020, The Wall Street Journal reported of Sanders’ tax-heavy plans for the U.S. economy:
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is trying to expand federal taxation on a scale not seen since World War II, pursuing policies that would end the nation’s run as one of the industrialized world’s lowest-taxed countries. Mr. Sanders’s combination of taxes on wealth, income, financial transactions, corporate profits, payrolls, estates and capital gains would hit rich Americans from every direction. If Congress were to pass all his plans, the total U.S. tax burden—including federal, state and local taxes—would resemble Canada’s or Germany’s rather than being near the bottom of the pack of rich nations.
Jen Ellis, from Essex Junction, Vermont, told Slate she was “totally delighted” when she found out Sanders had made her mittens famous. She recalled Sanders wearing her mittens a year ago during the presidential primary and some people on Twitter mistakenly gave credit to Sanders’ grandmother for making the mittens, so she tweeted that she had made them and added her Gmail account.
Ellis said that after the photo of Sanders at the inauguration went viral, “People have been contacting me thinking that they can get mittens, and actually they can’t. I don’t have any more, and I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore because it really wasn’t worth it. Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the federal government. We get taxed to the nth degree, and it wasn’t really worth it pursuing that as a business, even.”
Asked if she thought Sanders’ grumpy face reflected an unhappiness that he was not president and Biden was, Ellis responded: “No, I don’t actually think he was grumpy. I bet he was really excited to be there, even though it was bittersweet, right? Because he wanted to be in Biden’s shoes, but I’m sure he recognized the importance of that day and this whole change of power in America and I bet he was glad to be there. He is who he is and not everyone has a resting pleasant face.”
Woman who made Bernie’s mittens says: “I don’t have much of a mitten business anymore bc it really wasn’t worth it. Independent crafters get really taken for a ride by the fed’l govt. We get taxed to the nth degree & it wasn’t really worth it.” 🤔 https://t.co/i7LBhHSbJz

Ellis said she was also delighted that a woman was now vice president, though she wishes she were actually the president.
“I’ve waited four decades of my life — I’m tearing up just thinking about it — to see a woman be vice president,” she said. “I wish that she was president, although I think Biden is pretty great. It was so powerful to sit there with my 5-year-old daughter who I love so much and be like, this is where you enter politics, right? We have shielded you from Trump as much as possible. But this is what we want you to see, a wonderful, successful woman and a woman of color in such a powerful position. It was great to share that with her and my partner who’s also a woman, so we’re just a huge feminist household celebrating this momentous occasion.”
