Some Satisfying Saturday Politics

 A big show for a Saturday, At Haut Hair, Capt. Ed informs us about the SOTU bust: Biden approval "bounce" fantasy dissipates. I think the importance of the SOTU is vastly overrated anyway. From JTN, Republicans are outraising Democrats by 88% in Arizona House races, "After a 2020 election where Democrats won big prize, Arizona looks to be tipping red again, Fundraising is a sign of party momentum." WaPoo whines Arizona Republicans are pushing to divide Maricopa County. Critics say it’s about revenge for 2020 — and planning for 2024. "Opponents say the bill could make it easier to infuse doubt in the results of future votes or even overturn them" In theory it doesn't change the popular vote, but it does cut into the scope for cheating in the city. It's also likely more about rural folk resenting the rule from the city. Brandon Morse at Red State reports a Ninth Harris Aide Jumps Ship Amid Harris's Plummeting Approval Ratings. Rat, sinking ship.

Via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 03.18.22 (Evening Edition), LI, In Its Latest Attempt To Rig The System, The Left Targets GOP Lawyers Matthew Vadum at ET, Democrats Sue to Disqualify 3 GOP Congressmen From 2022 Ballot, Alleging Role in Insurrection, Election Manipulation, "Conservative senator calls partisan lawsuit 'total nonsense.'" Well, it is. Even Politifact Finds Demings' Rubio Claim 'False' "“Val Demings is grasping at straws in an effort to get Floridians to ignore her dismal record,". Who says Republicans are in lockstep? John Sexton at Haut Hair, Republican debate devolves into shouting match

Fox, Rep. Don Young, Alaska Republican, dead at 88, Rebecca Downs at Haut Hair, Longest Serving Member of Congress Don Young Has Died. No thoughts on how it affect the House balance in 2022. 

Young also served as a tugboat captain and trapper. He famously wielded the pubic bone of a walrus on the House floor during debate once. Young also pulled a knife and held it against the throat of former U.S. Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio, before Boehner became speaker.

Regarding inflation, Fox Business reports Oil prices top $100 per barrel on supply fears. On Da Hill, Zack Budryk tries to explain Why California has the highest gas prices in the nation. Because they deserve it for voting poorly? KT at Haut Hair explains Defund Big Oil? That's not going to play in Texas. At Reason, Blame Biden for High Gas Prices, "The president is running from his own hefty contributions to record gas prices and inflation." WUWT, Biden Lying About Oil and Gasoline Prices… Again. Why would he stop now? Fox Business, Democratic committee chair calls oil CEOs to testify amid gas price spike, "Democrats in Congress and White House seek to blame ongoing surge in gas prices on Russian President Vladimir Putin and energy firms." Mike LaChance at LI, points out Former Obama Adviser David Axelrod: “People Don’t Believe” Biden’s Talking Point About Putin and Inflation, “People don’t believe that either, they know that they had inflation before this. They know that gas prices were high before this.” Sundance at CTH, Planning To Use Oil Crisis, the Global Climate Change Agenda Is Triggered – Biden Declaring Climate Emergency, IEA Proposing Global Economic Changes, AOC and Bernie Sanders Join Drumbeat. Matt Vespa at Town Hall, The Democrats Are Trying to Hide a Very Dirty Secret About Electric Cars. Mostly powered by coal. 

At Da Blaze, Ocasio-Cortez says fossil fuel industry to blame for missing and murdered indigenous women. Fruitcake. Jeremy Bearman at Wa Ex notes how Congressional liberals press Biden to declare emergency and restrict fossil fuels. That's not gonna help. At Breitbart, Rand Paul calls the Biden Clean Energy Push ‘Completely Nonsensical and Tone-Deaf.’ Annie Lowery at the Slantic worries Will Inflation End With a Recession?. It's usually how that works. Stephen Green at InstyThe Dominance Of The U.S. Dollar Is Fading Right Before Our Eyes. "It’s one of those stories the mainstream media prefers to cover with a pillow." But the important news is that Doritos bags will now have 5 fewer chips thanks to inflation (Penn Live).

Tampa Freep, Trans Swimmer Beats Out Female Competitors By 1.75 Seconds In NCAA Championships. Twitchy, Iconic photo of women swimmers posing on the podium near Lia Thomas ‘is bravery in the face of mindless hysteria’ [pic]. WJ, Spectator Screams at 'Record-Setting' Trans Swimmer, Says What We're All Thinking, “cheater.” Via the Wombat, Outkick: Baker Va. Freshman Emma Weyant Cheated Out of National Championship by “Lia” ThomasKelley Paul@KelleyAshbyPaul "Congratulations on winning the Women’s 500 Free, Emma!" At Da Wire, Emma Weyant Praised As ‘Real Winner’ After Trans Swimmer Lia Thomas Takes First, "Second is the new first." Breitbart, UPenn Swimmer Says Lia Thomas ‘Ruins the Integrity’ of Women’s Swimming. From NYPo, Martina Navratilova says trans swimmer Lia Thomas should have an ‘asterisk’ next to her name. From PM, Caitlyn Jenner has 'the balls' to stand up for women's sports, "I don’t think biological boys should compete in women’s sports – we have to protect women’s sports… that’s the bottom line," Jenner said. We all know it's insanity, even the 5% or so who actually push it. They just want to tell us 2+2=5.

John Sexton, UK hospital claimed victim couldn't have been raped because ward was women only, but one them had a penis. Across da pond at Da Mail,  'I knew the hormones wouldn't work. Why did they play with her life?' Bereaved mom blames LA County for her teenage daughter's suicide, claiming school pushed her to transition to a male instead of properly treating her depression. Insty, on BLAMING WOMEN FOR THE CRIMES OF MEN:
For a solid five minutes this week, I believed that an elderly woman in New York City had killed and decapitated another elderly woman. I believed it because it was in the papers. It was there in black and white. In the apartment of this ‘83-year-old Brooklyn woman’, the New York Times reported, cops found the decapitated head of Susan Leyden, a 68-year-old lady who had gone missing. Police became suspicious of the 83-year-old woman and so they ‘searched her apartment’, the BBC said, wherein they found ‘a human head’. A few days later, not far from this seemingly evil woman’s apartment, they also found Ms Leyden’s leg and torso. Grim. And surely unprecedented. When was the last time a very old woman was alleged to have killed and then gruesomely dismembered another woman?

Then it hit me. I got to the very final line of the BBC report and saw these words – this 83-year-old ‘now identifies as a transgender woman’. I got further into the NYT piece, too. Its headline may have said ‘She Killed Two Women. At 83, She Is Charged With Dismembering a Third’, but then came this killer line: ‘[she] was listed as male in earlier court records but now identifies as a woman.’ So it wasn’t a woman. It wasn’t an 83-year-old lady who somehow summoned up the wickedness and the power to allegedly kill and horrifically mutilate a 68-year-old woman. It was a man. The NYT’s headline was a flagrant lie. So was the BBC’s entire account of this ‘woman’, she, allegedly killing Ms Leyden and then brutalising her corpse. I had been told, in no uncertain terms, that a woman killed a woman, and it was completely untrue.

Capt. Ed, "Misled, angry, scared": Another campus sexual assault cover-up in Virginia. Insty, A VERY PUBLIC EDUCATION: Virginia School Covered Up Sexual Assault That Left Victim Hospitalized. “School boards, accustomed to operating without much democratic input and to winning elections with minuscule turnout, are reacting to the sudden spotlight by covering up the consequences of their decisions and hiding crucial information from parents, even when it concerns their children’s safety." Just an ordinary gang rape. From Da Mail, House PASSES bill banning discrimination of black hairstyles including dreadlocks, Afros and braids at hair and school.

At Outkick, ESPN's Takes Moment of Silence in Protest of 'Don't Say Gay'. From Bounding in Comics, a Report: Disney To Include Gay Relationship In Lightyear Movie. At least it's "good gay," hot lesbian animation. 

Herr Professor Jacobsen at LI (via the Wombat), Conservative Speaker Targeted at Yale Law School: “This wasn’t a protest. This was physical intimidation”. Scott Johnson at Power Line, Prof. Kate Stith speaks: “Grow up”

Matt Margolis at PJ Media, Did Fauci Just Hint He'll Be Stepping Down Soon? PM, Fauci says he’s considering retiring.  AllahPundit at Haut Hair is bummed, Fauci: I'm thinking about retirement "At least we finally have an answer to the question of how we’ll know officially when the pandemic is over, though. Answer: When there’s too much else going on in the news for CNN to devote a segment to interviewing Fauci." 

At ET, CDC Removes 24 Percent of Child COVID-19 Deaths, Thousands of Others. Zero Hedge, CDC Removes 24 Percent Of Child COVID-19 Deaths, Blames Coding Error, and at Gateway, CDC Pulls a Fast One – Eliminates 25% of Pediatric COVID Deaths Overnight, Blames It on a Coding Error. "Died of" or "died with", it makes a big difference. NYT, cited at Haut Hair finds A schism among Democrats: COVID and the "very liberal" 

The key dividing line appears to be ideology. Americans who identify as “very liberal” are much more worried about Covid than Americans who identify as “somewhat liberal” or “liberal.” Increasingly, the very liberal look like outliers on Covid: The merely liberal are sometimes closer to moderates than to the very liberal.
