Biden Gets WuFlu Rebound, The No Recession Recession, the Recruitment Crisis

Stacy McCain informs us Joe Biden Has COVID — AGAIN!. "The White House is a circus and Joe’s the biggest clown." From the Peacock, after four or five days of testing negative,  Biden tests positive for Covid again, will restart isolation despite no new symptoms. Sundance at CTH is skeptical, Double Vaxxed, Double Boosted, Loaded with Paxlovid, Joe Biden Gets COVID Again, "Well, isn’t that convenient. Sorry folks, I can’t come out and take questions, I’ve got the Rona again." The thought occurred to me too. Matt Vespa at Town Hall thinks Biden's Latest COVID Diagnosis Nukes What's Left of the COVID Panic Regime. Naw, that panic regime gives them too many reasons for control to give up. Monkey Pox isn't threatening enough. Nick Arama at Red State, Reporters Nail Biden for Blowing off COVID Guidance in Another 'Rules for Thee' Moment. Biden appears to be undergoing a bout of post-Paxlovid rebound, where the virus starts reproducing again after treatment is discontinued. They claim it's rare, and if so, it is amusing that both President*** Biden and Tony Fauci suffered rebounds. My guess is it's more common than they admit. I think Paxlovid has been oversold, and there's no need to prescribe it unless someone is obviously developing a serious case of WuFlu. Let the immune system do it's job, and develop antibodies to parts of the virus that don't mutate as quickly as the spike proteins.

Paul Bedard at WaEx, White House Report Card: Weak wins spun as big victories. When weak wins are all you have (besides WuFlu).

From Caleb Howe at  Mediaite, Trump Tells Podcast It Will Be ‘Very Hard’ For Him NOT to Run in 2024: ‘In My Mind I’ve Already Made That Decision’, but Capt. Ed at Haut Hair cites an anonymous Senate Republican: C'mon, Trump won't run in 2024, and that's fine. I'm OK with that too. At Newsweek cheers as Donald Trump Slammed by MAGA Supporters After Tudor Dixon Endorsement. The Duke at Red  State attempts to explain The Reaction to Donald Trump's Endorsement for Governor in Michigan Is Truly Confusing. It does seem like small ball.

From Twitchy, BOOM: Christina Pushaw explains to Politico’s Jack Shafer why Gov. DeSantis doesn’t give interviews to the liberal media. Why help them lie?

Bad news for those counting on the Dobbs decision to motive Democrats for the midterms. Spencer Brown at Town Hall, Womp-Womp: New Poll Is Bad News for the Baby Killers. Peter Baker@peterbakernyt, "Americans who look favorably on the decision overturning Roe are 18 percentage points more likely to vote in the midterms — 70% compared with 52% of those who see the decision as a loss for women. ⁦⁦@KnowlesHannah⁩ ⁦ @EmGusk⁩ ⁦@sfcpoll"

Hmm. From JTN, Los Angeles bans observers from watching county District Attorney Gascon recall effort count. What are they trying to hide? But the really weird thing is its from JTN's Foreign Desk Staff. Is LA a foreign country? I was born there!

NPR claims Jan. 6 hearings chip away at Trump's hold on GOP, as 2024 hopefuls circle. Maybe small chips around the edges. A contrary view from JB Shurk at Da Fed, Is The J6 Committee Trying To Get Trump Re-Elected? "This may come as a shocker to Washington, but Congress’s J6 obsession is not high on Americans’ list of critical issues." Jazz Shaw at Haut Hair sees Another J6 rioter goes to trial for "shoving" and "yelling". What, was he from New York? 
Just to put this in perspective, let’s close by taking a short walk down memory lane. Revisit this video taken during the BLM riots in Minneapolis during the “Summer of Love” in 2020. Look at what is happening to the police officers there as mobs destroy their police cruisers with the officers inside and attempt to drag them out into the streets. Look at the amount of “shoving” of police officers that’s going on as the cops are forced back toward the burning buildings set ablaze by the rioters. The faces of many of the rioters are clearly visible. They should not have been hard to identify. But as a follow-up report from those riots pointed out, not a single person from these incidents was ever charged. None of them were even arrested. Then ask yourself one question. Do you still think we live in a society where justice is applied equally under the law?

UPI is concerned that 1 in 4 say harassing health officials over COVID-19 closures is 'justified'. I suppose it depends on what harassing is used to cover. Demonstrations, yes, assault, no. 

Dan Chaitin at WaEx wants you to SEE IT: Supreme Court leak investigators 'narrowed it down,' Shannon Bream reports. Fox, Supreme Court probe into leak of draft opinion on abortion narrows list of suspects, "Individuals who may have had access to the draft opinion were asked to turn over their cellphones and sign affidavits."

At Da Wire, ‘Doesn’t Sound Like A Recession To Me’: Joe Biden Downplays Economic Woes As U.S. Enters Recession. Matt Margolis at PJ Media, Pelosi in 2008: Two Quarters of Negative Growth Is ‘Technical Definition of Recession', back when it was Bush. Spin, Strangness and Charm, Two stories about shameless lying liars: (1) a recession is “no recession”; (2) Arafat is seeking peace. Breitbart, Candidate Joe Biden Promised to ‘Pull This Country Out of a Recession’ in 2020, now causing one in 2022. At BPR, In a moment of sanity, Colbert shreds CNN, MSNBC over recession coverage: ‘Thank you cable news’. At Hollywood in Toto, It’s Official: Late Night TV Turned on Recession-Era Biden, "Colbert, Fallon pummel president after journalists give 'all clear' sign"

The Week In Pictures: Recession Deniers Edition - Power Line
Chuck Warren at Am Great, Wordplay Won’t Change Economic Reality, but it does provide work for the chattering class. For example the glass is more than half full at the Economist, The silver linings of a recession, "Lower inflation and greener energy are worth the price of a short downturn." At NYPo, Undocumented, underhoused chestfed kids are not in a recession, say Dems "Because re-naming things is one of the left’s favorite pastimes. If you cannot change the facts then you can at least change the language around the facts. By doing so you can massage the facts, make them less concerning and in the process wish reality away. For a time, at least." The occasionally sensible liberal Megan McArdle at WaPoo, Enough with the ‘is this a recession?’ blather. "Sure, you can’t really blame the Biden administration for trying to put a positive spin on things. But the rest of us — and Democrats especially — would be better off if the left spent less time looking for better phrasing and more time finding solutions." By the NR editors, (cited by Haut Hair), Stagflation by any other name. "It is almost comical how much work the Biden administration is putting into denying that the U.S. economy has entered a recession." Sundance at CTH, Keep in Mind, The Same Media and Financial Voices Denying the Current Recession, are The Same Media and Financial Voices Who Proclaimed Trump’s Tariffs Would Destroy Economy.  Ace, The Government, Media, Corporations and Institutions Constantly Lying to the Public Continue to Wonder Why The Public No Longer Trusts Them.

Three more from Sundance, Fed Preferred Inflation Index Jumps 6.8% in June, Largest Increase in Four DecadesThe Biggest Problem and Shrinking the Economy is a Feature, Not a Flaw – Massive Layoffs and Unemployment Likely Hits in September. At Real Clear Energy, An Inconvenient Truth: ESG Is Fueling Inflation Woes. (Environmental, Social, and Governance, ESG). Quick Hits at Ace, The US debt will grow to double the country's gross domestic output in 30 years. This is "uncharted territory," economists warn. . . .I think it's well-charted territory, actually -- just look at South America. We're looking at collapse."

David Harsanyi at NYPo, Democrats’ high-spending ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will do just the opposite. Even AllahPundit at Haut Hair, Oops: Manchin's new version of BBB designed to reduce inflation might ... increase inflation, study says. At Based Politics, ‘Statistically Indistinguishable From Zero’: Ivy League Analysis Shreds Biden’s ‘Inflation Reduction Act’. From Breitbart, Democrat Reconciliation Bill Relies on Extra Taxes, IRS Enforcement to Spend over $400B on Obamacare, ‘Climate Change’. Greg Byrnes at PJ Media has even More Build Back Better Baloney. Beverrly McKittrick on Da Hill claims Democrats are Destroying our economy, one sector at a time. Wrong, multiple sectors simultaneously. YaHoo fears Midterm Misery for Biden as Key Economy Gauge Flags 30-Seat Loss

Across da pond at Da Mail, Baby formula crisis WORSENS as out-of-stock levels hit 30%: Parents accuse Biden of forgetting about them and mom struggling to feed twins says 'I'm sure these politicians' babies eat.' Jazz Shaw wonders Why is the baby formula crisis still getting worse? Because, fundamentally, the administration doesn't care. And a final economic hit as NYPo informs us Hershey warns it won’t be able to meet demand for Halloween candy. Bummer. 

Switching to the culture war portion of our program, Summit News informs us the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine Advising Hospitals To Use Term ‘Father’s Milk’, "And “lactating person” instead of ‘nursing mother’ because it’s more “gender-inclusive” . . . "Even the word ‘breast’ doesn’t escape the newspeak diktat, being replaced with ‘mammary gland." At HE, Biden Is So Obsessed With Trans He's Demanding Coverage of Boob Jobs for Men At Am Think, Thomas Buckley thinks out loud about The Transgender Dichotomy. Matt Margolis at PJ Media, Controversial Transgender Clinic Shuts Down in U.K., Deemed ‘Not Safe’ for Children. At HE, Highway to Hell: Grace Church School Forced Students to Attend Drag Queen Worship Service. And at Da Wire, DeSantis Makes Move Against Florida Bar That Held ‘Sexually Explicit’ Drag Shows With Kids. WaEx, California school district paid $20K for 'Woke Kindergarten' consultant.

Bounding into Comics finds 173 Corporations Including Disney, Sony, and Comcast Sign Letter Supporting Gay Marriage Act.  In North Carolina, After 5 incumbents jump ship, dozens file to run for school board in Wake County. Behind the Black  records how a Teacher wins victory against Rhode Island school district that tried to blacklist her for opposing CRT. Allie Beth Stuckey@conservmillen,
"Neutrality is a myth. Those who claim to fear Christian theocracy actually just want to implement their own. They want Christians to check their worldview at the door, so they can make sure they can control you with theirs." Christopher F. Rufo, "By the end of fifth grade, the curriculum explicitly asks students to become political activists make a “commitment to change,” according to the dictates of queer theory. Students receive a list of six commitments . . ." At Da Caller, House Republicans Introduce Resolution Declaring Critical Race Theory A Threat To US. At PM, Dems were fine enforcing Covid restrictions—now call Monkeypox measures 'homophobic'. "Now that restrictions are merely being suggested to curb the spread of Monkeypox, cries of homophobia and discrimination abound."

'Harpy' Daniels 
From This Ain't Hell, MN National Guard pays $77k to LGBTQ mag for recruiting efforts. Bob Spencer at PJ Media, says Priorities: U.S. Military Base Is Hosting a Drag Show. 'Harpy' Daniels'.  Stacey Matthews at LI notes Military Recruitment Crisis Underway as Biden Admin Continues Emphasis on Wokeness, Vaccine Mandates, “Defense Department officials have been sounding the alarm for months: the military is going to miss its enlisted recruiting goals this year, and the Army may be in the worst spot of any of the services.” WSJ opines What if They Gave a War and Everybody Was Woke? "The military’s embrace of faddish politics may make activists happy, but it’s driving away recruits."
