Biden Worse than Carter, DeSantis Up, Avenatti Pleas Out, Jan. 6 Take Backseat to Golf, DOW Crashes

 At Da Blaze, Biden now 'doing worse than Jimmy Carter,' Democrats are 'super-duper worried' about midterms: 'There's no other way to cut it'. A lot of us thought Carter was a best case scenario.  At the NYPo, Joe bummer: Biden says Americans ‘are really, really down’  Yeah, maybe it's gas prices, food inflation or our pensions evaporating. Dan Chaitin at WaEx, 'Don!': White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre rejects Biden stamina question. The interesting thing about this is Don Lemon taking a step off the Biden wagon. At Da Mail, Joe doesn't know if he's coming or going: Biden says he hasn't decided to go to Saudi Arabia - seconds before confirming he IS going, but I'll bet he remembers the Thomas confirmation. Matt Margolis at PJ Media, How Dumb Is Joe Biden? Ask Him. He’ll Tell You. "People who Joe Biden thinks are smarter than he is: – All the women in his life – Kamala Harris – His sister – Stacey Abrams – Hunter Biden" Likely true. It's not that high a bar. Although, in the old days he did have some political cunning. Capt. Ed at Haut Hair (VIP) catches Biden saying to America: Be confident in my leadership! Like Obama, I'm pretty confident in his ability f*ck things up. R. Emmett Tyrelle at Am Spec, Why Not the Worst? "It’s always a race to the bottom with his party, but our president is proving himself to be historically awful." At NYPo, Big Sister II: Kamala Harris leads latest Biden ‘disinformation’ team. At least she'll fail. It's her skill. Ace, In Left-Leaning Fox Poll, Republicans Are Beating Democrats On Question, "Which Party Do You Trust More to Preserve Democracy?"

At Haut Hair, AllahPundit whines, The new frontrunner for the 2024 nomination according to PredictIt is..., DeathSantis! Rusty Weiss at PI, Ron DeSantis Thanks ‘African-American’ Elon Musk For His Support For President In 2024 – The Left-Wing Meltdown Is A Thing Of Beauty. Andrea Widburg at Am Think thinks Ron DeSantis had a brilliant, funny response to Elon Musk's support "Gov. Ron DeSantis reacts to Elon Musk saying he would vote for him if he ran for president: "I welcome support from African Americans. What can I say?"" The NYT, cited at Haut Hair, has helpful advice on Winning when Trump is against you: A how-to guide, "Don’t break with the base on policy."

At CNS News, Rep. Pfluger: Republican Mayra Flores’s Win Is ‘the Beginning of the End of the Democrat Party in the Rio Grande Valley’. From your lips to God's ears. Fox, Republican who flipped blue House seat in Texas says her victory sends ‘strong message’ to Democrats "Flores argues that Democrats for generations have taken Hispanic voters in South Texas for granted." Actually, you're probably better off if they take you for granted instead of trying to "help" you, and make you more dependent. Spencer Brown at Town Hall details how Democrats Aren't Taking Their Texas Special Election Loss Well

"I hope the DCCC learns their lesson with this before it happens across the country," said Democrat Vicente Gonzalez, before pointing to the bigger issue for Democrats. "They have just forgotten about the brown people on the border… I’m not going to try to sugarcoat it anymore," Gonzalez said. "They are taking Latinos in South Texas for granted."

Stuart Whitson at Am Spec want to draw your attention to An Election Scandal in Kansas May Be Underway in Other States, "Leftist groups are trying to influence elections when voters aren’t looking — and some in government are playing along." At WaEx, House Republicans seek Biden administration's voter registration plans

Republican lawmakers are pressing 12 executive agencies to reveal their plans to increase voter turnout as the Biden administration refuses to disclose the reports.

Top Republicans on five committees sent letters to a dozen individual agencies Wednesday, including the Department of Labor , the Small Business Administration , the Department of Energy , and the Department of Agriculture , after an earlier letter to the Biden administration went unanswered. President Joe Biden signed an executive order in March 2021 directing agencies to produce plans to increase voter turnout but has not made public the reports that were due in September of last year.

The goal is to embed Democrat party goals as articles of faith in all branches of the government, whether or not those institutions have any relevance to the goals. Chris Queen at PJ Media asks Who's the Real Threat to Democracy? Olivia Hajicek at Da Fed, NSBA’s Apology For Letter Comparing Parents to Terrorists Hasn’t Stopped The FBI From Targeting Free Speech. At Behind the Black, Today’s blacklisted American: Biden administration purging conservatives from FBI.

Who says there ain't no justice? At Anxious, Michael Avenatti pleads guilty to wire fraud and tax charge. It looks like CNN's presidential candidate is looking at some significant time. And more good news from Breitbart, Campaign to Recall Soros-backed L.A. D.A. George Gascón: We Have the Signatures

At Red State, Nick Arama captures how What NBC Did During Jan. 6 Hearing Shows Just How Much Dems Have Lost Americans, cut away for golf. Hey, baby needs a new pair of shoes. "But it made perfect sense, since not only is golf more interesting, it’s more credible." He gets it, he really gets it after all, from Twitchy, CNN’s Brian Stelter paraphrases Fox News’ commentary on Thursday’s January 6 committee hearingBrian Stelter@brianstelter "Paraphrasing Fox's commentary after today's 1/6 hearing: Powerful testimony, but the committee should have a full slate of Republicans; 1/6 proves the country's institutions held; the coup plot was implausible; hearing's 2024 talk taints it with politics" Althouse, CNN's new president Chris Licht wants staff to staff to stop saying "big lie" and just say "Trump election lie" or "election lies." Mediate reports. Jack Wolfson at NR (cited by Haut Hair) worries Is the January 6 committee Liz Cheney's last stand? He's hoping she can win with a cross-over vote. AllahPundit has identified the villain (besides Trump) The horrible Mr. Eastman, who apparently counseled Trump to try the "Pence Gambit." It's a lawyer's job to try to get his client the best deal the law allows. The law was ambiguous. Wapoo whines, Pence’s Jan. 6 tightrope: Owning his role while courting Trump voters, "Thursday’s hearing could put the former vice president in a bind as he plots his own potential path to 2024" Sorry, WaPoo, there is no Pence candidacy without Trump. At Breitbart, Pence aideMarc Short on January 6: ‘Ultimately the Buck Stops’ with Trump. At WaEx, Judge rejects Steve Bannon's attempt to toss out contempt of Congress charges. I look forward to Nancy P. on the stand. John Solomon at JTN  Capitol Police failures on Jan. 6 foreshadowed in earlier warnings, memos show, "Between 2017 and 2020, multiple red flags were raised about preparedness, training and intelligence, records show." Nancy P in charge, after all.

Thom Nickels at Front Page, Dear Justice Kavanaugh: 'You Won’t Know What Hit You', "Nicholas Roske, the Left’s new hero?" At Summit News, Kavanaugh’s Neighbour Claims Pro-Abortion Protesters Are Threatening Homeowners; “F*ck You, F*ck Your Children” What lovely folk! At PM, 22 Democrats who voted against extra security for SCOTUS justices approved it for themselves after Jan 6. "Many of the members of Congress who voted "no" are well known for their own security."

Insty, COME SEE THE VIOLENCE INHERENT IN THE LEFTISM: Pro-Abortion Organization Threatens ‘Increasingly Drastic Measures’ Against Pregnancy Centers.   Breitbart, Radical Abortion Group ‘Jane’s Revenge’ Threatens Domestic Terrorism  Ace, White House Refuses to Issue a Prominent Condemnation of The Explicitly Terroristic Communique Sent By Their Leftwing Feminist Terrorist Allies, "Jane's Revenge" "Abortion activists firebombed another pro-life pregnancy center last week, the third such firebombing in the past several weeks." No enemies on the left. At Da Caller, Arsonists Firebomb Pro-Life Legislator’s Office In Latest Attack. From Chuck Ross at the Wa Free Bee, Pro-Life Facilities Are Under Attack. A Top DOJ Official Called Them ‘Fake Clinics,’ therefore not worth of protection.
