Even on Memorial Day. Paul Bedard at WaEx finds Trump at ‘all-time high’ in 2024 betting, swamps Biden. The betting markets are about as accurate as the polls. Mike LaChance at LI thinks Joe Biden’s Presidency has Never Recovered From the Botched Withdrawal From Afghanistan, "Reports on Biden’s sinking numbers have become routine. But August of 2021 was the turning point." It certainly became obvious what we were in for at that point. According to The Wa Free Bee, Dems Keep Hoping Their Midterm Chances Are Getting Better. Election Forecasters Say They’re Wrong. At this point, I wonder if even a miracle, (or an extraordinary dirty trick) can save them.

Pat Shanahan at Am Think considers the modern Democrat party in Uneasy Bedfellows. At WaEx, Trump allies step up efforts to oust Cheney. Strike at the king . . .
At the WaPoo, No evidence of exploitation of Dominion voting machine flaws, CISA finds, CISA being DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Yes, I'm sure Joe Biden's DHS looked hard for evidence of election hacking, by Republicans. Shawn Fleetwood at Da Fed reports on how Wisconsin Voters Sue Democrat Cities Over Illegal Drop Boxes In 2020 Election. Not all cheating needs to be electronic. Rick Moran at PJ Media, Opponents of Georgia's Election Law: You'll Have to Wait Until November for the Voter Suppression.
Grasping at straws, at WaEx, Nina Jankowicz claims disinformation board could have helped prevent mass shootings.

At Breitbart, Senate Republicans, Democrats Rebuke Joe Biden, Janet Yellen: ‘Tariffs Are Not a Driver of Today’s Inflation’ From Da Caller, Every Time Biden Drained Strategic Oil Reserves, Prices Ended Up Higher. Here’s The Proof. It's pissing into the ocean, designed to look like he's doing something, when it's really too small to have any lasting effect. Politico wonders Gas prices are rising. So where are the electric cars? Do Democrats ever stop to think about where the electricity for electric cars might come from? Hint, it won't predominantly be wind and solar.

Andy May at Am Great has the answer to Why Does Boston Buy Natural Gas from Russia? "The environmental organizations have full veto power on all energy projects through the legal system." Lack of pipeline capacity.
At LI, Leslie Eastman reminds us, Out-of-Stock Rates Surge to 70% for Baby Formula, and the "FDA chief Robert Califf admits his agency’s bureaucrats were ‘too slow’ to act." Just give the babies water; I'm sure they'll be OK. I&I says Militarizing The Baby Formula Crisis Is Infantile.
