Biden's Worst Week Yet

Paul Bedard at WaEx finds White House Report Card: Zogby declares ‘worst week,’ D-, so far . . . Bear with me on this next one one, it's takes a little time to develop. Stacy McCain notes that suddenly Liberals Want Ukraine to Negotiate?, and thinks it's liberals wanting a win for Biden before the midterms. Are they that devious? Of course they are. 

Politics, that’s what. The war in Ukraine has driven up gas prices, contributing to an inflation problem that’s making the Biden administration look bad, and we’re now less than six months away from the midterm elections, which are looking grim for the Democrats. So the New York Times wants a ceasefire in Ukraine to bail out the Democrats.

Mediaite shocked, shocked that Almost 70 Percent of Republicans Say IMPEACH BIDEN After Midterm Win. We warned them that making the impeachment of a President pro-forma after the other party takes the house would come back to bite them, but did they listen? Brandon Morse at Red State notes that The Latest Plummet in Biden's Approval Comes From Within His Own Party. "The current main figure of the Democrat Party is drowning and taking his colleagues with him. Midterms look to be an unmitigated disaster for Democrats despite doing everything to try to stop the bleeding except the right things." And what would we do without Florida Man? Tampa Freep, Florida Man Arrested After Repeatedly Calling 911 On President Biden.

Ben Whedon at JTN warns Pennsylvania GOP Senate race may not see winner until June, "Dr. Mehmet Oz currently holds a narrow 1,079 vote lead." At CTH, sundance digs in, Federal Court Mail-in Ballot Ruling in Unrelated Election May Impact Tight PA Primary Senate Race. Send lawyers, guns and money. 

WaPoo, Voting is surging in Georgia despite controversial new election law, "Tuesday’s primary is the first big test of the legislation, which was opposed by voting rights groups and Democrats." NewsBusters, Georgia Breaks Records Using Law Media Decried as Voter Suppression. Sundance, Record Early Voting in Georgia as Major Primary Race Takes Place Next Week. At Twitchy, Aaron Rupar spots logical fallacy in WaPo reporter’s tweet on surging voter turnout in Ga. undercutting Dem narrative.

Maybe it only make cheating hard? Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair The media long knives come out for Herschel Walker. How dare a Black man run as a Republican?

Stacy McCain has schadenfreude over the Democrat turmoil over redistricting in the wake of the court decision overturning their egregious Gerrymander, Democrats in Midterm Meltdown as DCCC Chairman Makes ‘Racist’ District Move. Ryan King at WaEx, New York court cements Democratic bloodbath with new map while Court reinstates DeSantis's congressional map, the main difference being that NY specifically outlawed partisan redistricting. Now do Maryland. Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair (VIP) is amused that The congressional redistricting maps are apparently not only racist, but also sexist. Meanwhile concern that Census screw ups (or was it delibertat bias) deprived the GOP of one or more possible seats.

At JTN, Joe Mueller (no relation?) reports Missouri attorney general sues more school districts over new mask mandates, "Schmitt's suit contends the school districts arbitrarily set a benchmark to require masks." Terrorist! As National School Boards Association Admits to Colluding with Biden Administration on ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Letter (Breitbart). More on one of the early cases that led to this letter, Loudoun County School Board Moves to Block Investigation of Sexual Assaults it Covered Up, Matt Margolis at PJ Media, and Capt. Ed at  Haut Hair, Loudoun County school board begs court to shut down grand-jury probe into misconduct. "Say, look who still doesn’t appreciate accountability and transparency!" At Da Wire, Maine Superintendent Told Staff To ‘Slow The Process Down’ After Parent Requested Gender Material Be Removed From Classroom, "A Maine school superintendent told school staff to slow walk the process after a dad asked the school to remove gender identity materials."

At PM, Court rules 'Gender Queer' too 'obscene' for viewing by minors, "Virginia Republican congressional candidate Tommy Altman brought his concerns regarding these "obscene" materials, which have been distributed amongst grade school libraries across the state." At Breitbart, National Science Teachers Association’s ‘Gender-Inclusive Biology’ Calls Women ‘People with Ovaries’ also, Disney Releases LGBTQ Pride-Themed Toys Marketed to Children.

Defense attorneys seek to identify and investigate 80 suspicious actors and material witnesses, some of whom allegedly ran an entrapment operation against the Oath Keepers on January 6, 2021, and committed crimes including the removal of security fencing, breaching police lines, attacking officers, and inciting crowds to storm into the Capitol.

In a motion (pdf) and supplement filed after 11 p.m. on May 5 in federal court in Washington, attorney Brad Geyer listed 80 people, some of whom he said could be government agents or provocateurs. The people are seen on video operating in a coordinated fashion across the Capitol grounds on January 6, the attorney alleged.

Geyer’s suggestion of an entrapment scheme will resonate with dozens of January 6 defense attorneys, coming shortly after two men were acquitted of an alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D). There was a hung jury on charges against two other defendants. The jury in that case was allowed to consider FBI entrapment as a defense.

At ET,  EXCLUSIVE: Videos Show Unindicted ‘Suspicious Actors’ Attacking Capitol on Jan. 6

CNN, Giuliani meets with January 6 committee for more than 9 hours. How many time can you try to spring a perjury trap? Matt Vespa at Town Hall wonders Should We Be Worried That Bill Barr Is Going to Cooperate with the January 6 Commission...Allegedly?. I think Barr can handle them. At YaHoo! Tensions rise between DOJ, Jan. 6 panel. Can I hope they both lose?

Fox, Supreme Court could rule on Roe v. Wade on Monday, as Biden admin braces for violence after decision, "The Biden admin is preparing for nationwide violence after the Supreme Court issues a decision on Roe v. Wade."  Wa Free Bee wants you to Read the DHS Memo on Left-Wing Threats Against Judges and Priests "DHS states that the agency identified "at least 25 violent threats on social media" that included "burning down or storming the US Supreme Court and murdering Justices and their clerks, members of Congress, and lawful demonstrators," also, NYT Writer Urged Activists To Escalate Protests Targeting Kavanaugh, "Opinion writer Lindsey Crouse says protesting outside Kavanaugh's home isn't enough." WaEx, Youngkin: Garland not going to enforce law barring protests outside justices' homes. Also at Wa Free Bee, A County Chairman Refused To Boost Security at Supreme Court Justices’ Homes. Then He Had Police Guard His Residence. Fairfax County, VA.

Breitbart notices Dow Jones Industrial Average On Longest Losing Streak Since 1932. Zero-Hedge, Dow Suffers Longest Losing Streak In 99 Years, Bonds & Bullion Bid. Fox Business, Record gas prices for this long 'unprecedented': AAA, "AAA national spokesman reveals how long drivers can expect higher prices at the pump." Hint, not any time soon. Washington D.C. Business Daily, America's weekly Gas Misery Index hits $814; Memorial Day prices could be 'higher than any other'

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good. In far too many states, the power grid is already nearly at full capacity, and in the next few months, that capacity will be exceeded. This isn’t a question of “if” or really even “when.” It’s just a fact.
. . .
One of the older sayings in modern politics is that the first responsibility of the government is to “keep the lights on and the trains running.” If they fail at that job, they have failed the nation entirely. And they’ll probably wind up with a revolt on their hands.

At Haut Hair, KT reports on the Biden baby formula crisis: Air Force to fly pallets of baby formula from Europe to U.S.. Now, if the kid will just shut up until that is distributed.

Did you ever in your life imagine that we would see a time when the United States couldn’t feed its babies? Before February, it was unimaginable.

From the Slantic, cited at Haut Hair,  An expensive, technically illegal workaround to the formula shortage. Unimaginable. . . .
