Flotsam and Jetsam: Hey Marianne What's Your Game Now Can Anybody Play?

Dan Chaitin at Da Wire reports in how Biden Spy Chief Responds To Balloon Controversy: ‘We’re Going To See More Of This’ "“It’s so crazy. It’s really like an episode of ‘Veep,’ you know, on some level,” she quipped. . ."

Ben Whedon at JTN notices Biden Passing the buck: 5 times Biden tried to shift blame for his problems to Trump, "Do I take any blame for inflation? No. It was already here when I got here, man," Biden said." Brian Riedl@Brian_Riedl "Chartstorm. Today, CBO released its first budget baseline in 9 months. Washington's fiscal situation has significantly deteriorated, and should serve as a wake up call. Deficits will approach $3 trillion within a decade even assuming the 2017 tax cuts expire as scheduled. (1/9)" Thanks Brandon. Insty reads Andy McCarthy at NRO, MCCARTHY CONCLUDES IT’S IMPEACHMENT TIME: 
Former federal attorney Andy McCarthy is a careful and conservative thinker in the best sense of the latter adjective, so it’s important to take note of the fact he has concluded that the time has come for House Republicans to begin impeachment proceedings as the only effective response to the border crisis.

“Congressional Republicans seem to grasp that, at this point, the only solution is impeachment, the position advocated by three former government officials and top Heritage Foundation analysts — Hans von Spakovsky, Lora Ries, and Steven G. Bradbury — in a recent Fox News op-ed. But my friends are aiming too low — specifically, at Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security (as applied to him, an Orwellian title if ever there was one),” McCarthy writes at NRO.
. . .
“It’s that simple: Either Republicans use the only tool available to them to force Biden’s hand, or they are aiders and abettors. There is no middle ground.”

Marianne Williamson
But the good news in the bad news is that Biden's political dereliction of duty has prompted a possible challenge for the nomination. From Politico,  Marianne Williamson planning 'important announcement' in March. ""As America gears up for the 2024 presidential election, I’m preparing an important announcement on March 4th in Washington DC," Williamson said." If Don Lemon thought Nikki Haley too old. . . 

So I misremembered the lyrics, sue me.

From Da Caller, news that Trump Is The Clear Favorite In GOP Primary: POLL, still. Mediaite feigns outrage that Trump Addresses ‘Meatball Ron’ in 1 a.m. Post Ripping DeSantis. "Trump has called DeSantis “Ron DeSanctimonious” on multiple occasions, but according to a New York Times report published Saturday, Trump has referred to him as “Meatball Ron” in private conversations in what is apparently a reference to the governor’s appearance, his Italian ancestry, or both." Sarah Arnold at Town Hall sees George Soros Fears a 2024 DeSantis Ticket "My hope for 2024 is that Trump and Gov. DeSantis of Florida will slug it out for the Republican nomination," At Fox, DeSantis team rips Andrea Mitchell's claim he does not want slavery taught: 'Maliciously intent on deceiving.' In other words, media business as usual. Twitchy claims MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan’s racist take on Nikki Haley’s run ‘is about as vile a thing he’s ever said’ A high bar, but you can judge, "Nikki Haley Is Abandoning Her Race In Order To Run For President." When you've lost Karine Jean-Pierre who fires back at Don Lemon from White House podium, says she hasn't 'hit prime yet' "CNN host Don Lemon was blasted for claiming that according to Google, Nikki Haley is past her 'prime' as a woman." At Breitbart, John Nolte says Disgraced Don Lemon Is Melting Down … and It Is Glorious.

Having begun as a heretical Christian sect (“inner light,” my ass) and metamorphosed into an elite hive of “progressive” subversion, the Quakers are now all-in on “diversity,” and the AFSC hired a Muslim woman to be their diversity boss, but it turns out she was an impostor:
Raquel Evita Saraswati, a Muslim activist who for years has encouraged people to believe that she is a woman of color, including Latina as well as of South Asian and Arab descent, is the AFSC’s chief equity, inclusion, and culture officer, a senior position that gives her access to the files of dozens of the organization’s staff and volunteers. But Saraswati, who was born Rachel Elizabeth Seidel, is not a person of color, according to her mother, Carol Perone.
“I call her Rachel,” Perone told The Intercept, when reached by telephone. “I don’t know why she’s doing what she’s doing.”
Saraswati, her mother added, is of British, German, and Italian descent — not Latina, South Asian, or Arab. “I’m as white as the driven snow and so is she,” added Perone . . .
Now, here’s the big payoff in this story:
Oskar Pierre Castro, a human resources professional who participated in the search committee to fill Sarawati’s position, told The Intercept that she had presented herself as a “queer, Muslim, multiethnic woman.”
“It really touched all the points,” said Castro . . .
“DEI is becoming a multibillion-dollar industry: corporations, companies, nonprofits,” [an anonymous] AFSC leader told The Intercept. “The data shows a tiny percentage of the directors are Black. And now you have white people in brown face getting into DEI positions, with its salary, resources, and power.”

The Free Bacon report  Is Your Baby 'Nonbinary'? Social Workers in Pennsylvania Are Now Required To Say. "The state's Office of Child Development and Early Learning, which funds health and social programs for young children, requires providers to report demographic information on their cases—including, since 2022, the gender identity of infants. Data collection forms for the agency now ask for newborns' "gender" rather than their sex and allow providers to select male, female, or "Gender Non-Binary."" Insanity.
