Biden Still Sunk, Red Wave Swells, Inflation Roars On, and So On

Breitbart cites a  Poll: Joe Biden’s Job Approval Underwater in 47 States — 34% Overall (Massachusetts, Hawaii and Vermont are outliers). Can we give Hawaii back to the islanders, and Vermont to Canada? At CNS News, Gallup: Only 16% of Adults Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction. But remember, at least half of Democrats want to continue to make things worse. John Sexton at Haut Hair hears a Red Tsunami update: Cook Political Report shifts forecast in favor of Republicans. The Peacock whines about Inside a Biden White House adrift, "Amid a rolling series of calamities and sinking approval ratings, the president’s feeling lately is that he just can’t catch a break — and that angst is rippling through his party." He can always resign. At Althouse, "The Democrats lost an election they never expected to lose. They... lost to a reality TV show host when Hillary Clinton had all the backing of the establishment in the world."

"And instead of asking, what is it about our ideology that ruled the country for eight years, that drove people away from us into Donald Trump's arms, they instead decided they were going to blame everybody else. The Democrats simply replaced Trump with the same ideology they governed with for 8 years under Obama that caused people to run away from them as fast as they could. And now that people are doing that again, instead of asking ‘why is that happening’ they're getting poised to blame the electorate for being stupid -- for thinking the economy's bad when it's actually good."

Said Glenn Greenwald, quoted at Real Clear Politics.

At Politico, ‘He doesn't speak in beautiful syntax’: GOP bets the Senate that Walker is ready for prime time, "Herschel Walker’s post-primary victory lap was a fresh reminder of his promise and peril as GOP nominee in Georgia." Some Blue on Blue action reported by Stacey Matthews  at LI, Dem Election-Year Infighting Escalates as Rashida Tlaib Faces Pro-Israel Primary Challenger. May the least awful person win! But Matt Vespa at Town Hall warns Republicans Once Again Risk Blowing the Midterms   

First, there were rumblings of bipartisan talks on immigration reform after the April break. I thought that was the worst of it. Nope. There’s some bipartisan chatter about a new anti-gun package. I’m not kidding. Republicans, you’re doing this right now. You shouldn’t be doing it at all, but c’mon guys. It’s like you want to find a new way to lose (via Politico) 

Anxious has a Midterm special: Key House, Senate and governor races to watch. "The midterm outlook for House Democrats is so bleak that even members in districts President Biden won by 10 to 15 points are in danger of losing their seats, according to election experts." At WaEx, Katie Britt holds edge over Rep. Mo Brooks in Alabama Senate Republican runoff. "“It’s pretty baked, in my opinion,” said a Republican operative..." Atop Da Hill, Mo Brooks gets into fiery exchange with ‘Fox News Sunday’ host over 2020 election fraud belief. At Da Beast, Fox News Anchor Rebukes GOP Rep. for Promoting D’Souza’s Batshit Movie, claims it's been 'dbunked.' At Front Page, Trump Video: What '2000 Mules' Exposed Was Given to GA Officials. "Can you guess what they did with the evidence? 

I believe what he was calling a hoax was the "insurrection" characterization. That's why he said "the so-called word insurrection." Now, that's a bit inarticulate. Obviously, "insurrection" is really a word. The point is that entry into the Capitol doesn't fit the definition of an "insurrection," which isn't a surprising assertion. Trump gets back at his accusers by calling the "insurrection" characterization "a grotesquely false, fabricated, hysterical partisan narrative."

Has anyone on the Cheney side ever explained how it could be possible to think that overrunning the building could overthrow the government? I wish people on both sides would use accurate language, but of course, they won't.
David Drucker at WaEx notes Inflation and gas prices are the top concerns in swing House districts: Poll. Breitbart, Gas Prices Soar to Record High on Memorial Day. The true test is whether it comes down at all after Memorial Day. At Politico, ‘My top economic priority’: Biden op-ed lays out plan to fight inflation, with higher taxes and spending more money. At Fox, CNN correspondent says Biden can't do much about gas prices: 'Options are looking pretty bleak', at least not without contradicting his previous policies which encouraged the price of oil to rise. At Am Spec, read about Biden’s War on Driving, "High gas prices and car prices are part of the plan." Sundance observes the Central EU Economy, Inflation Rate in Germany Jumps Far Beyond Expectations in May to 8.7 Percent"When America Sneezes, the World Catches Cold."

NYPo ed board points out how The FDA’s baby formula fiasco continues. Let 'em gum cake.  And atop Da Hill, Worries about coming ObamaCare premium spikes intensify, that brainchild of the Biden/Obama administration. 

Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair wonders Is the New York Times waking up to the transgender athlete issue?. I'm pretty sure they'll shrug it off as a bad dream. At Da Blaze, NYT: Doctors say Lia Thomas has unfair advantage over biologically female swimmers.   Madeleine Hubbard at JTN sees the Biden education head defends biological boys in girls sports, not telling parents about trans kids. Jeff Charles at Red State, Florida School District Instructs Teachers to Keep Parents in the Dark on Their Children’s Transgender Identity. At Fox, North Carolina preschool uses LGBT flashcards depicting a pregnant man to teach kids colors. Anxious is anxious to inform you that Mattel designs first transgender Barbie, modeled after Laverne Cox. I thought Ken was the first Barbie transgender. At PM, US Air Force Base cancels Drag Story Hour after Post Millennial expose. "After reporting brought the plans to light, the 86th Airlift Wing told The Post Millennial that the plans were scrapped."

At Hollywood in Toto wonders Is Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos Getting Red-Pilled in Real Time? "Streaming chief gave, and gave, to same liberals now waging war on him" ET cites Reuters, SEC Looking Into Musk’s Twitter Stake Purchase
