CNN admits 75% of Democratic voters want someone other than Biden in 2024. Brad Thayer at Am Great discusses at length the problems involved in Making ‘The Switch’ "Tanking poll numbers and obvious lack of enthusiasm for the Biden Administration have forced the Democrats to confront a series of hard choices." But will he even make it far enough for that to be a problem? At Summit News, Journalists Again Demand To Know Why Biden’s Doctor Is Hiding.
Stacy McCain, ‘We Were Somewhere Around Barstow on the Edge of the Desert When the Trump Derangement Syndrome Began to Take Hold …’ John Cardillo@johncardillo, "Kristol has become his own parody account." Bill Kristol@BillKristol "I've been saying for a while that we need as our next president our version of the admirable Volodymyr Zelensky. Today I got another "personal message"--i.e., mass e-mail--from @johnlegend on behalf of Democrats. Which leads me to ask: When Biden steps aside--John Legend in 2024?" Insty, I SAW THE BEST MINDS OF MY GENERATION DESTROYED BY TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME, STARVING HYSTERICAL NAKED, DRAGGING THEMSELVES THROUGH THE TRANSGENDERED BATHROOMS AT DAWN LOOKING FOR AN ANGRY FIX. 2024: Bill Kristol Says Democrats Should Recruit John Legend (Not Kamala) to Replace Biden — ‘Our Version’ of Zelensky. Well, that would make Chrissy Teigen the first lady, so there would be lots on nude photos to use. Ned Ryun at Am Great thinks Trump Should Announce His Candidacy Before the Midterms, "Trump's announcement and presence during the last two months of the midterm campaign would be a stark reminder of what was compared to what is."
At NotTheBee, "I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit." AllahPundit approves, "I am a woman sitting at the table": Harris opens meeting by reminding the audience of her pronouns. "I know she’s at six percent in that primary poll of New Hampshire today, but it’s early. Give her time. By 2024 she might make it all the way to zero." Althouse reacts to "I am Kamala Harris, my pronouns are she and her, and I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit." "To follow "My pronouns are she and her" with "I am a woman sitting at the table wearing a blue suit" is like saying "My pronouns are she and her — duh!""
Ari Kaufman at Da Lid sees Two Huge Republican Senate Primaries Set For Next Week. Missouri and Arizona. Capt. Ed at Haut Hair thinks GOP might be heaving a sigh of relief in Missouri?. And at Haut Hair VIP AllahPundit sees Another ominously bad poll for Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania "But the results here are grim enough to be noteworthy, particularly when we’re starving for data from Pennsylvania." I have no love for Oz, but the GOP needs every Senate seat possible to pull it off.
At CJ, Jack Ketchum explains the Electoral Count act well and the proposed reforms, Better a Century Late than Never, "A bipartisan group of senators proposes commonsense reforms to the Electoral Count Act." At Politico, Jan. 6 panel Dems throw shade at Senate's bipartisan foray into their turf, "The proposal designed to prevent a future Capitol-riot-style election challenge needs buy-in from both chambers. And for now, they're diverging." AllahPundit wonders Are House Dems dumb enough to tank the Senate's attempt to "Trump-proof" the next election?. No! Republicans are the stupid party; Democrats are the evil party.
PBS Wisconsin whines Wisconsin disabled voters file federal lawsuit over voting and absentee ballots, "The federal lawsuit follows a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling that prohibits absentee ballot drop boxes and only the voter can return their absentee ballot in person to a clerk's office or a designated site." Of course, they can still mail them in.
Capt. Ed, Grassley: "Highly credible" sources tell me the FBI's running political interference for Hunter Biden. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed explains FBI’s False Labeling Of Biden Laptop As Disinformation Is Even Worse Than It Seems. Here’s Why. The Wa Free Bee names names, Meet the FBI Analyst Behind The Decade’s Biggest Political Disinformation Campaigns, "Brian Auten pushed Trump-Russia collusion and is now accused of discrediting Hunter Biden stories" Bob Spencer at Front Page wants to Defund the FBI, "The Bureau has become irremediably politicized and inveterately corrupt." Yep.
The unsinkable Molly Hemingway (and Tristan Justice) at Da Fed reveal In Private, Cassidy Hutchinson Joked About Riot, Called J6 Committee ‘Phony,’ Praised Trump Before Changing Story. Ace, Private Texts Reveal That Madison Cornbread Called Herself an "Insurrectionist," Joked About the Riot, Praised Trump, and Called the J6 Committee Phony Before Starting the Madison Cornbread Image Makeover Media Blitz. So was her conversion staged or coerced? Insty, THAT’S WHAT SHOW TRIALS DO, citing Matt Margolis at PJ Media, Jan. 6 Committee Hiding Evidence That Absolves Trump
“Mr. Miller and GEN Milley met with the President at the White House at 5:30 p.m.,” the report reads. “The primary topic they discussed was unrelated to the scheduled rally. GEN Milley told us that at the end of the meeting, the President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021, and Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, ‘We’ve got a plan and we’ve got it covered.'”
As John Solomon of Just The News reveals, “The Pentagon memo also yields insight into the mindset of the Democrat-led Congress, top military officials and the local police” before the events of Jan. 6, 2021. “Key players, it reveals, repeatedly raised concerns about accepting the offer of National Guard help, fearing it would create the perception of a military coup or martial law as the election results were certified.”
As we know, President Trump’s offer of troops was not accepted and adequate security measures were not in place.
It is quite clear from this that Democrat leaders bear more responsibility for the riot than Donald Trump — which is why you haven’t seen this come up in the hearings and why the committee was stacked with anti-Trump partisans.
WaPoo whines Trump didn’t want to call for Jan. 6 rioters’ prosecution, new video shows. At Twitichy, Scott Adams sums up all of the January 6 committee hearings to date in five steps, Scott Adams@ScottAdamsSays. Along with a few amusing suggestions for #6 and #7
1. Trump attempted a planned insurrection.
2. Okay, loosely planned.
3. Okay, not planned, but he encouraged it.
4. Okay, he didn't encourage it, but he didn't try to stop it.
5. Okay, he did try to stop the violence, but he should have done more, and sooner, during fog of war.
Capt. Ed reads WaPoo: Trump now a target in DoJ's criminal probe? "Not necessarily, although that’s the impression the Washington Post wants to leave with this blockbuster report last night." Breitbart, AG Garland Won’t Rule Out Charging Trump — Even If He Is 2024 Candidate. Sundance at CTH, Washington Post Reports DOJ Conducting Grand Jury with Witness Testimony Targeting President Trump for Seditious Conspiracy Against Government "Do they want a civil war? It might sound good around the DC cocktail party circuit, whipped into a frenzy by the Lawfare crowd, but the outcome would not be in their interests." Haut Hair cites the NYT, “We would just be sending in ‘fake’ electoral votes to Pence"
In emails reviewed by The New York Times and authenticated by people who had worked with the Trump campaign at the time, one lawyer involved in the detailed discussions repeatedly used the word “fake” to refer to the so-called electors, who were intended to provide Vice President Mike Pence and Mr. Trump’s allies in Congress a rationale for derailing the congressional process of certifying the outcome. And lawyers working on the proposal made clear they knew that the pro-Trump electors they were putting forward might not hold up to legal scrutiny.
But then, they might. Lawyers try things. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
“We would just be sending in ‘fake’ electoral votes to Pence so that ‘someone’ in Congress can make an objection when they start counting votes, and start arguing that the ‘fake’ votes should be counted,” Jack Wilenchik, a Phoenix-based lawyer who helped organize the pro-Trump electors in Arizona, wrote in a Dec. 8, 2020, email to Boris Epshteyn, a strategic adviser for the Trump campaign.
In a follow-up email, Mr. Wilenchik wrote that “‘alternative’ votes is probably a better term than ‘fake’ votes,” adding a smiley face emoji.
Always write your email like you expect to have them read in Congress. Capt. Ed lays out how a Judge DQs prosecutor from one target in Georgia fake-electors probe": Optics are horrific" In a similar lawfare attempt, the Conservative Brief reports how a Judge Rules GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene Is Eligible For Re-Election.

Tongue firmly in cheek, the Babylon Bee celebrates as Joe Biden Signs 'Don't Say Recession' Bill. At Da Wire, Yellen: We’re Not In A ‘Recession,’ We’re In A ‘Transition In Which Growth Is Slowing’ Slower than negative? Not good. Matt Margolis at PJ Media notes the White House Refuses to Say What Its Definition of a ‘Recession’ Is. That depends on how bad the data come in, doesn't it? Elle Reynolds at Da Fed, The Left’s Response To Failure Is To Redefine It As Success Katie Pavlich@KatiePavlich, "Except it is the technical definition." Brian Deese: "Two negative quarters of GDP growth is not the technical definition of recession. It's not the definition that economists have traditionally relied on."
Capt. Ed calls "Pre-recession"? Consumer confidence falls to year-low level. At NYPo, US home prices to plunge ‘substantially’ on ‘cratering’ demand: economist. From the Center Square, Inflation is hammering rural America, report shows. It's just flyover country. Politico bothers to explain Why expensive gasoline is here to stay, "Future presidents and administrations are going to be absolutely bedeviled by high gasoline prices. . . . The reason: The United States’ capacity for refining oil into gasoline is declining, a trend that appears irreversible — for reasons that include climate change. But the nation’s appetite for fuel is holding firm, no matter all the predictions of a future filled with electric cars." Which doesn't explain low prices during the Trump presidency.
I&I sees the handwriting on the wall, ‘You Will Own Nothing, And Like It’ — The Real ‘Clean Energy’ Future
So, if raping the earth and ravaging the seas to get the minerals needed for “clean energy” are off the table, what’s left?
Ah, the global elites have the answer!
Just get everyone to give up ownership of their cars, cell phones, and other stuff that needs power to operate. If we all shared the stuff, we’d need less of it.
“More sharing can reduce ownership of idle equipment and thus material usage,” Yeh says.
Other leftists have been singing the same song. Late last year, a transport minister in the United Kingdom declared that we had to move away from “20th-century thinking centered around private vehicle ownership and towards greater flexibility, with personal choice and low carbon shared transport.”
We can share the women, we can share the wine. We can share what we got of yours 'cause we done shared all of mine:
