From CNS News, Gallup: Biden Job Approval Down in Nearly Every U.S. Subgroup, Especially Ages 18-64. Geezers for Biden! From Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.27.22, Don Surber explains how FJB chants sink Democrats
College is the the breeding ground of Democrats. The mocking of the Democrat Party leader was a turning point. The media ignored it but now scorns it. The chant reminded me of the antiwar chants in the 1960s. Think FJB is harsh? Try, "Hey, Hey, LBJ. How many kids did you kill today?"
From Bob Spencer at Front Page, Joe Biden Can’t Remember How Long He Has Been President "Guess when he thinks he took office. . ." Yeah, it seems like forever to me too. Unhelpfully, Dave Catron at Am Spec says The 25th Amendment Won’t Fix Our Biden Problem, "It is not and was never meant to be an alternative to impeachment." Buckets of warm spit; Jim Antle at NYPo has Departures and disasters: Kamala Harris might be the worst veep ever, and that's a high bar indeed. But somebody in the admin has noticed, Mediaite, Biden’s Harsh Dismissal of Kamala Harris During Negotiations Left GOP Senators ‘Taken Aback’: New Book. Capt. Ed at Haut Hair notices despair at Politico: Dems' "despair mounts" over inability to move Biden agenda. Speaking of which, First Street Journal (hereby FSJ) reports Joe Manchin’s popularity soars in West Virginia. On Da Hill, Brent Budowsky thinks Why a Biden comeback may be coming. Political fortunes rise and fall and may rise again, but I think the coming recession will kill that.
“The new reality with which economies must reckon is higher inflation and slowing economic growth. And a big reason for the current bout of stagflation is a series of supply shocks that have curtailed output and raised costs. The covid pandemic forced many sectors to lock down, disrupted global supplies and produced a persistent reduction in labour supply, especially in the US. Then came Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has driven up various prices. China’s draconian lockdown in major economic hubs has squeezed supplies further. But even without these short-term factors, the medium-term outlook would be darkening. There are many reasons to worry about stagflationary conditions haunting the global economy with higher prices, lower growth, and possible recessions in many places.”
Left out: 80% of All US Dollars in Existence Have Been Printed in Just the Last Two Years.
Also left out from 2020: US industrial production tanks the most in 101 years amid factory lockdowns.
From the Mint, Global stagflation won’t be just a squall that’ll blow over. I&I, See If You Can Follow Yellen’s Bouncing Inflation Ball. At the Wa Free Bee, The Media Don’t Get What You Don’t Get About Biden’s Economic Boom. "Rather than criticizing the American Rescue Plan for driving inflation to 40-year highs, the New York Times blames Americans for not appreciating the Democratic Party's "technocratically elegant and often invisible policies."" Breitbart, Stocks fall ahead of earnings from Big Tech companies. At PJ Media, Athena Thorne wonders How Bad Will the Biden Recession Be?. At Da Fed, Elle Reynolds warns The Inflation Draining Your Wallet, Grocery Cart, And Gas Tank Is Far Steeper Than 8 Percent. Southern Wisconsin Times, Wisconsin gas station owner on $400 BP fine: 'Truth hurts, doesn't it?'.
At NYPo, An astonishing turnaround in New Yorkers’ concerns is bad news for Democrats. Dave Drucker at WaEx sees a poll, GOP candidate Walker leads Democratic Sen. Warnock in Georgia Senate race. WaPoo, cited at Haut Hair, thinks Trump’s Georgia allies are running on 2020 grievance. It may not work. Ah, but it might too. That's why we have elections. At Haut Hair, AllahPundit is pissed by Tucker: Do we want the next GOP House majority led by a "puppet of the Democratic Party"? Chris Barron at HE writes In Defense of Trump’s Endorsement of Dr. Oz. Birds of a feather.
The criticism of Oz’s candidacy has been almost 100% focused on whether or not Oz is sufficiently conservative on abortion, on guns and on cultural issues in general. Critics point to things Dr. Oz said during the long run of his show and on segments his show ran. This criticism is legitimate, but it is worth pointing out that this is the exactly same criticism that was levied at candidate Trump in 2015.
Mark Leibovich at the Slantic (cited at Haut Hair) thinks he knows How to beat Trump in 2024. “The problem with 2016 is that people waited ’til they were at their politically weakest point before they started pounding Trump”
Also from Wombat's In The Mailbox: 04.27.22, Joy at Legal Insurrection is joyful as NY Supremes Throw Out Democrats’ Gerrymandered Redistricting Map. Spence Brown at Town Hall, Breaking: NY Court Sides With Republicans in Massive Blow to Dems' Gerrymander. John Sexton at Town Hall, NY Court of Appeals rejects redistricting maps 'drawn with an unconstitutional partisan intent'. "The NY Times calls it a “stinging defeat” for New York Democrats who gerrymandered the state by explicitly disregarding a law passed to prevent such behavior." Sundance at CTH, New York State Appellate Court Rules Against Democrat Gerrymandering Effort, 2022 Primary Likely Delayed.
At Am Con, Heyden Ludwig predicts continued efforts at Making Vote By Mail Permanent "Major Democratic donors like Mark Zuckerberg aren’t finished federalizing America’s elections." Sundance has the video, as Dinesh D’Souza Discusses His Perspective on the 2020 Election After a Full Review of the Illegal Ballot Harvesting.
At Da Wire, ‘This Is A Cult’: How Wealthy Santa Barbara Foreshadowed The Fight Against Crackpot Curriculum. John Kline at Am Spec does the research and finds Critical Race Theory Is Derived From a Laughably Dumb Series of Space Alien Stories, "Appallingly bad critical race theory science fiction showcases the ideology’s toxicity." Not even L. Ron Hubble level bad. Bruce Thornton at Front Page, Diversity, Free Speech, and the 'Woke' Assault on America, "We are living in Orwellian times." Nick Arama at Red State watches as Biden's Brain Breaks, Then What He Said About Kids in School Will Make Parents Shudder. RNC Research@RNCResearch, "Biden to teachers: “They're not somebody else's children. They're yours when you're in the classroom." Ace, BIDEN TO TEACHERS: "THEY'RE NOT SOMEONE ELSE'S CHILDREN... THEY'RE LIKE YOURS WHEN THEY'RE IN THE CLASSROOM". At the Political Hat, Pre-School Gender Indoctrination. Christopher F. Rufo @realchrisrufo "SCOOP: The Evanston/Skokie School District has adopted a radical gender curriculum that encourages PK-3 students to celebrate the transgender flag, break the "gender binary" established by white "colonizers," and experiment with neo-pronouns such as "ze," "zir," and "tree." Megan Fox at PJ Media has the video, [WATCH] Amazon Employees Hold Secret Zoom Meeting Plotting to Ban Conservative Children's Book. At Twitchy, Drew Holden notes how ‘so-called’ disappeared from the media’s reporting on the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill. AllahPundit contented, Disney reassures investors: Don't worry, Florida can't cancel our special district
Ace, in partially italic red font, with the (ordinary) flaming skull, Department of Homeland Security Creates "Disinformation Governance Board" Censorship Authority; "New Censorship Kommissar Bought Laptop "Russian Disinformation" Op from Deep State Colleagues and Pushed the Lie on Twitter. Via the Wombat the Weasel Zippers: Biden’s DHS Creating An Actual Ministry Of Truth, also, Kevin McCarthy Told Liz Cheney He’s Like To See More Conservatives Banned From Twitter. Twitchy, Here’s a flashback tweet from the new head of the DHS Disinformation Governance Board that didn’t age well. Nina Jankowicz@wiczipedia "Back on the "laptop from hell," apparently- Biden notes 50 former natsec officials and 5 former CIA heads that believe the laptop is a Russian influence op. Trump says "Russia, Russia, Russia."
Ace again, Kevin McCarthy Asked Liz Cheney, Can't The Social Media Monopolies Take Away the Accounts of Congressmen That Question the Election Results, Too? and The Washington Post, Which Just Doxed an Orthodox Jewish Woman and Linked Her Address in a City Where Orthodox Jews Are Routinely Targeted for Hate Crimes, Says That Criticizing Twitter's Prominent $17 Million Per Year Censorship Queen Is Harassment, "We're allowed to dox you and post your physical home address so that our antifa lunatics can track you down and kill you, but you're not allowed to publicly criticize our Tech Censorship Collaborators." At Town Hall, John Stossel take on an oldie but goodie, Wikipedia Bias. Chet Richards at Am Think thinks You Can't Have a Functioning Nation without Free Speech. I agree.
