21 Embarrassing Moments Of Unbridled Stupidity

Some people take a long bath or treat themselves to a pastry when they’re feeling low. Maybe they talk to a friend who can make them smile. But when we’re feeling depressed or insecure, our favorite pastime is observing stupid people do what they do best: inflate our egos with their embarrassing antics. There’s nothing quite as uplifting as seeing people f*ck up worse than we do on a day-to-day basis. And we’ve got a whole lot of that stupid for you to scroll through right here.

The Hits Keep Coming…Dems Just Got Worst News Imaginable

It really is starting to feel like the left just can’t catch a break…and conservatives definitely aren’t complaining.

TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!

A new poll from Rasmussen just delt an absolute gut-punch to the Dems by revealing that a MAJORITY of Americans now believe cheating occurred during the 2020 election.

And look at how that number has risen since November…even with the Dems, media, and Liz Cheney trying to tell us how “fair” 2020 was.

Shocking.

Dems must be horrified.

Check it out:

51%, a majority of U.S. likely voters, now believe cheating affected the 2020 election results, up from 47% just after the November election.

Legacy media still spends 24/7 demonizing any questioning of the 2020 results.

MORE NEWS: [VIDEO] Biden Calls Putin “Trump” in Yet Another Embarrassing Blunder

Of course, this isn’t the biggest shocker to most Americans, but surely it will shake the left, who is determined to just “move on” from the 2020 election like everything is all hunky-dory.

But the bad news for them is that now a MAJORITY of Americans aren’t ready to sweep the 2020 election under the rug and just “move on.”

An example of this, are Michigan Republicans, who are now demanding a forensic audit in their state.

From MLive

Members of the Michigan Republican Party are working with activists to demand another audit of the 2020 election, but party leaders and top GOP lawmakers argue it’s time to move on from relitigating the results.

Activists are collecting thousands of signatures on affidavits pressuring Republicans in control of the state House and Senate to request a “forensic audit” of the 2020 results. Michigan election officials already completed audits of the election, but former President Donald Trump’s supporters are unsatisfied. Seven months after Trump’s defeat, they’re looking for evidence that the race was “stolen.”

Trump and his supporters hope other states will follow the lead of Arizona, where the Republican-controlled state Senate ordered an audit of the swing state’s most populated county. The former president told supporters the audit will spark reviews in other battleground states he lost.

The audit out of Arizona is going to turn this country upside down.

But hopefully, it will bring some much-needed clarity to one of the most controversial elections in our nation’s history.

A Funny Selection Of Mostly Self-Deprecating Clown Memes

Clowns have been having quite the moment over the past few years. “Jokerfied” has become a verb. Thousands of women have been Harley Quinn for Halloween. It had a new opportunity to become a household name. Despite all these prominent media moments, we (as a society) are overlooking the biggest clowns of all: ourselves.

That’s right. Somehow, the human race has managed to make jesters of themselves on a day-to-day basis. Whether it’s convincing yourself that you matter to your corporate overlords, or if you’ve convinced yourself that you can change your toxic partner, we’re constantly subconsciously donning giant shoes and making a mockery of ourselves by playing dumb. But we’re not alone. Pretty much every living, breathing human with an ounce of empathy, heart, or soul has themselves up for clownish disappointment. And boy, are there a ton of memes out there that reflect just that.

[VIDEO] Putin Just Humiliated Biden Yet Again, This Time on Live TV

I think the worst job on the planet would be “Biden’s Handler.”

Imagine the stress those ghouls are working under, with this lying, cheating Buffon as the face of the “presidency.”

They have to be popping Tums and drinking themselves into a stupor.

MORE NEWS: [VIDEO] Biden Calls Putin “Trump” in Yet Another Embarrassing Blunder

Once again, Putin manages to humiliate Biden – this time on LIVE TV – and the beauty of this move is that Biden wasn’t even there…lucky him.

Biden is famous for his lies. He lies all the time and you can’t believe any of the stories that he tells, because those are all fake too.

And today, Putin just busted Biden in a doozy.

>>>FOLLOW US ON GAB<<<

It’s surrounding the story where Joe says he once looked Putin in the eyes and told him that he had a “soul,” and that the two of them “understand” each other.

Well, today, a reporter asked Putin about that supposed incident, and Putin said he didn’t remember that convo.

Of course not, because it never happened…

All he remembered was Biden talking about his mother.

Yes, that sounds about right.

Watch:

REPORTER: Then-VP Joe Biden said he looked in the eyes and told you “you have a soul” and you said “we understand each other.”

PUTIN: “I actually don’t remember that.”

[VIDEO] Tucker Carlson Reveals Biggest Jaw-Dropping Plot-Twist Regarding Jan 6th

We all know by now that January 6th is being used as a political weapon.

TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!

The left uses everything as a weapon, and, next to COVID, Jan 6th is one of their biggest and best yet.

The problem is, the narrative they’ve sold – an “armed insurrection” that killed a police officer is a complete and total lie.

Nobody at the melee was “armed” except the police.

MORE NEWS: [VIDEO] Biden Calls Putin “Trump” in Yet Another Embarrassing Blunder

And the only person who was killed as a result of that event was an unarmed Trump supporter.

These are inconvenient facts for the left…so they keep pushing the lies.

Biden just did it again today, and nobody in the fake news media will call him out:

President Biden says the “criminals” on Jan. 6 killed a police officer

Medical examiners determined Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causeshttps://t.co/os0fRXFpMO pic.twitter.com/C0Ml5NrooE

— Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) June 16, 2021

The left got a real “political gem” when January 6th unfolded. It was another amazing “coincidence” of perfect timing for them…Just like COVID, that came along right in time to destroy Trump’s perfect economy and start all those “mail-in” ballots.

Miraculous political luck, right?

Do you believe in coincidences?

Most don’t…at least not when they’re THIS BIG and this close together.

>>>FOLLOW US ON GAB<<<

So, what really happened on Jan 6th? Was it a spur-of-the-moment melee, or did Trump supporters plan it, or was it something completely different and far more sinister than anything you could ever imagine?

Tucker Carlson and former Trump speechwriter and head of Revolver News, Darren Beattie, both believe it may be much darker and more evil than most people can handle…

Did the FBI orchestrate the Jan 6th events?

[VIDEO] Biden Calls Putin “Trump” in Yet Another Embarrassing Blunder

Joe Biden has completely and totally humiliated himself and America on the world stage.

TIRED OF THE ADS? BECOME A PREMIUM USER TODAY!!

From the G7 disaster to the Geneva flop, Biden has proven beyond any reasonable doubt that he has late-stage Dementia at best, and full-blown Alzheimer’s at worst.

There were a string of blunders, from not knowing what country he was talking about to 10-second brain freeze, to the usual stammering, and losing his train of thought – it was so bad that he was caught wandering aimlessly in a local cafe, and Jill had to “rescue” him.

So, how does Biden cap all that embarrassing failure off?

Well, he calls Putin “Trump” during a “press conference” where he was only allowed to call on “certain approved people.”

I’ll give him a bit of credit – this time Joe caught himself and corrected the blunder, unlike the “Syria/Libya” disaster where he prattled on and never caught his mistake.

He must have had the “better” meds today.

Second Opinion As a Podcast! Episode 4

Always known as the market of innovation, E&S insurers are leveraging flexibility and creativity to help customers solve problems.

The excess and surplus market continues to enjoy steady growth while conditions in the standard market remain challenging for insureds. With standard lines carriers raising rates, tightening terms and conditions and pulling back capacity, risk managers are turning to E&S solutions for greater flexibility.

“It’s a very exciting time within the E&S market. We’re seeing a lot of acceleration in growth driven by three main factors: poor historical portfolio performance over the last few years in certain segments —particularly transportation, construction and habitational real estate — growing CAT losses within the United States, and the ongoing effects of social inflation,” said Jude DiBattista, leader of E&S Brokerage Casualty at Nationwide.

While the full impact of COVID-19 on the risk and insurance landscape is yet to be seen, the economic hardship created by the pandemic has shaken the financial footing of many carriers, exacerbating these trends.

“The increasing value of claims and the change in legal environment has set off a chain reaction within the industry, causing many carriers to pivot their strategy, cut capacity and reposition underwriting appetite. The E&S market continues to grow because we’re able to provide creative solutions for our customers, understanding their needs and are innovators in areas that are problematic, further enhancing the value of the E&S market and contributing to the accelerated growth,” DiBattista said.

Here’s what makes the E&S market well-positioned for sustained growth as the economy recovers, and what insureds should look for in a carrier partner.

Why E&S Flexibility Is Suited for Today’s Challenges

Jude DiBattista, leader of E&S Brokerage Casualty, Nationwide

With the freedom of rate and form that comes with non-admitted paper, E&S carriers are able to develop more tailored and creative solutions to address unique exposures and changing risk profiles. Risk managers can take advantage of greater underwriting flexibility to build coverage that meets both their insurance needs and their budget constraints.

For example, one way that insurers are looking to limit their exposure in today’s challenging environment is by seeking higher attachment points, creating gaps in the coverage tower. Insureds need to utilize more markets and pull in more policies to plug those holes.

“Historically, it wasn’t uncommon for $25 million to be put up in a lead position. Now, most carriers are reducing that to the $5 million to $10 million range, which is providing opportunities for other carriers to share in the tower.  There are opportunities for E&S solutions to help to fill in gaps between primary and excess layers,” DiBattista said.

Custom endorsements or exclusions can also give insureds more control over their exposures.

“After the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s, for example, we saw insurers add communicable disease exclusions onto policies,” DiBattista said.

“However, COVID has shined a new light on this issue and is forcing the insurance industry to reconsider how to address pandemic risks.  We’re looking at different policy language where we could add support, and not just take the reactive approach of excluding everything. We’re trying to figure out creative ways from a policy form perspective where we could cover some exposure and help businesses stay resilient through this type of disruption.”

The same creativity and expertise that fuels policy language innovation can also support the development of tailored loss control strategies. For most companies, that means figuring out a way to keep operations running as normally as possible while protecting employee and customer health. From hand-sanitizing stations to enhanced cleaning protocols and sensible sick leave policies, tactics to ensure safety will go a long way in reducing liability and workers’ compensation risks.

“We’re tasked with helping clients get back on their feet, which will take coordination between loss control and claims departments, to identify the pain points and develop targeted interventions that will help to reduce losses,” DiBattista said.

Beyond the pandemic, flexibility and creativity will also enable E&S underwriters to better tackle the unique exposures of emerging sectors, like cannabis, 3D printing and the sharing economy. These businesses come with an unprecedented mix of legal, regulatory and liability risks that admitted carriers may not have an appetite for. These growing segments will be a driving force in E&S market growth for years to come.

“We’re starting to see more and more opportunities in the sharing economy space in particular. Studies have shown that more than 80 million Americans buy products online regularly. Websites like Etsy and Wish are gaining momentum just like Uber and Lyft did. Each brings a unique set of risk and exposure that as an industry we have to be there to solve for,” DiBattista said.

What to Look For in an E&S Carrier Partner

Companies beginning to rely more heavily on E&S solutions should know what characteristics make for a great partner. Specialized, industry-specific expertise tops the list.

“At Nationwide E&S/Specialty, we’re specialists, not generalists. We’re able to provide deep understanding of the industry segments that we serve,” DiBattista said.

That deep understanding comes from a mix of experience and data analytics. “One of our top priorities is learning how to better leverage technology, data and analytics to gain a more granular understanding of risks and loss trends, allowing us to fine tune underwriting and claims management,” DiBattista said.

“It also allows us to improve efficiencies, deliver better decisions and understanding the buying habits of our customers. Technology allows us to take a forward-thinking view of what’s going on in the market and in particular accounts, meaning we can identify leading indicators and monitor trends as they’re emerging. Ultimately, that helps us evolve as a market so we can develop new products as our customers need them.”

Commitment to loss control is another key differentiator. Many insureds are adapting to hardening markets by raising retentions and keeping more of their risk in-house, driving greater prioritization of risk mitigation and loss prevention. Carriers that support customers in these strategies through access to experts and resources create better outcomes for all stakeholders.

“Nationwide has loss control experts in various segments of the insurance industry, focusing on specific risks like premises liability, workplace safety, etc. They work directly with insureds, analyzing their loss history and unique characteristics to identify vulnerabilities and build specific risk mitigation strategies that will improve their operations and make things safer,” DiBattista said.

Perhaps the most valuable trait in an E&S carrier, however, is dedication to innovation and creative problem solving.

“We’re here for our partners to assist them with any question they could potentially have on a risk, pricing, market intelligence, or any problem they face. E&S has always been the market of innovation, and we’re fully committed to partnering with our customers, understanding their needs, and finding solutions to the most difficult challenges,” DiBattista said.

Cringey Guy Horrifies Women With Bewildering Attempt At Seduction

Few internet phenomena have developed at the alarming rate of men’s thirst traps. Gone are the days when a partially clad mirror selfie would satisfy attention seekers; it’s now a whole process involving ring lights, mood music and worst of all, meticulously planned video.

The time when half the population seemed hellbent on perfecting a Lin-Manuel Miranda lip bite was bad enough. Yet somehow, we appear to be in a horrible new era of embarrassing, romantically inclined content creation. Twitter users seized on an example of this over the weekend after discovering the work of TikToker @spencermumford.

In particular, one video attracted all the wrong kind of attention. In it, Mumford lipsyncs and winks at the camera while proclaiming that he is attracted to the “Big Hearts” of women in a long list of ethnicities. To apparently prove his point, he announces that he “love[s] rhythm” with some alarmingly offbeat dancing and seemingly out of nowhere, professes his love for the soundtrack provided by Nigerian musician Burna Boy.

Despite his attempt to charm, Twitter was less than convinced by his confused and slightly terrifying efforts. If there’s one takeaway from this trainwreck, it’s that nobody becomes a heartthrob by being tryhard.

Chinese National in New York Pleads Guilty to COVID-19 Relief Loan Fraud: DOJ

A Chinese national has pleaded guilty after being accused of cheating the federal government and banks to obtain tens of millions of COVID-19 relief loans meant for small businesses. He could be sentenced to up to 32 years in prison, the Justice Department said in a June 15 press release. The 37-year-old New York resident, named Muge Ma, also known as Hummer Mars, had been detained and accused since May 21, 2020, of fraudulently attempting to claim over $20 million of government-backed loans for two of his companies—New York International Capital LLC (NYIC) and Hurley Human Resources LLC (Hurley). Evidence shows that he paid millions of dollars in wages to hundreds of employees, but Ma was later found to be the sole employee of both companies. The false representations made to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and at least five financial institutions include a range of falsified and doctored bank …
