Flotsam and Jetsam - Lori Lightfoot Loses

Yesterday Capt. Ed at Hat Hair asked the question, Will Chicago voters give Lightfoot the heavy boot? The answer was a resounding yes. WaT, Lori Lightfoot eliminated in Chicago mayor's race.  "With 89% of the votes counted, Mr. Vallas received 35.0% of the vote and Mr. Johnson 20.3%. Ms. Lightfoot finished third at 16.4% while U.S. Rep. Jesus Garcia came in fourth in the nine-person primary with 13.8%. Since nobody got a majority, Mr. Vallas and Mr. Johnson will advance to a runoff April 4." Stacy McCain is all broken up, Good-Bye, Mayor Frogface! Lightfoot Places Third in Chicago. Reelection Bid Spencer Brown at Town Hall, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Has Been Defeated. Nick Arama at Red State, Lori Lightfoot Defeated in Chicago Mayor's Race.  From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.28.23 (Evening Edition) Legal Insurrection: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Loses Reelection, the First One Term Mayor in 40 Years, Sundance at CTH, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot Concedes Defeat After Taking 3rd Place in Reelection Effort – First Chicago Mayor in 40 Years to Lose Reelection. Does this really mean Chicago is on a road to reform? I'd like to be hopeful, but I have almost infinite confidence in the ability of big city voters to fuck things up.

From Fox, George Santos Biden flamed for 'lying' that he attended Black church, fought segregation during youth: 'All debunked lies' "One Twitter user blasted the president, saying, 'Literally none of that is true'".  From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.28.23 (Evening Edition) Louder With Crowder, Joe Biden claims that even though he’s a white boy “he’s not stupid” – we beg to differ  Dave Strom at Hat Hair, The long shadow of Kamala Harris. "Here we are in 2023 and the Minnesota Freedom Fund is still freeing criminals who leave a trail of blood in their wake." From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.28.23 (Afternoon Edition), Da Tech Guy sums up The Biden Administration in One Paragraph, "As recently as Thursday of last week, FEMA again denied aid to East Palestine. The message was clear: help was not coming. But the following day, within a couple of hours of Donald Trump announcing he planned to visit the town, the Biden administration reversed course and announced it would send aid to East Palestine."

At the PI, Interest Payments On National Debt Will Exceed Defense Spending This Decade, CBO Says, Capt. Ed, "We are on an unsustainable debt trajectory, and Washington lawmakers are studiously ignoring it. We now add a trillion dollars or more every year to the national debt, even without the hot wars that Democrats blamed for the spending. Most of that comes from entitlement spending, which desperately needs restructuring, but politicians like Joe Biden continuously demagogue for their own short-term political gains. The only thing certain will be the crash." Sundance, U.K Grocery Inflation Hits 17.1% as Energy Costs Embed in Supply Chain. Nick Arama at Red State thinks The Unhinged Meltdowns Outside SCOTUS Over Student Debt Are Something to See.

Matt Margolis at PJ Media wonders What’s Up With John Fetterman? JohnCardillo@johncardillo "Being told that Fetterman is essentially brain dead and it’s being hidden because keeping him in office until August 18th avoids a special election which Republicans would most certainly win. This must be investigated." Stacy McCain, If Fetterman Is Brain Dead, Maybe They Should Hook Him Up to Jumper Cables? "A U.S. Senator is “essentially brain dead“? Certainly this would be newsworthy, if true, and given that the public hasn’t actually seen Fetterman in weeks, how do we know if it’s true or not? Therefore, the burden is on Democrats to disprove this claim, and a mere statement claiming that Fetterman “remains on the path to recovery” won’t suffice."

Vicky Marshall at Da Fed How Bad Is Your State At Managing Voter Rolls? Find Out With This New Database. For MD, "The Foundation has received the voter roll and is in the process of analyzing it. We filed a lawsuit against the Maryland State Board of Elections for failing to disclose the state’s voter registration records. In September of 2020, the Board of Elections signed a settlement agreement with us where they agreed to hand over the voter roll. Under the NVRA, the public has a right to monitor the condition of voter rolls and hold election officials accountable for their accuracy."

John Sexton at Hat Hair has most Parent's nightmare: 5th grade teacher sued for calling a girl a boy's name until she felt suicidal. From Da Lid, Judge Orders District To Pay $100K In Legal Fees After Barring Moms Reading District Approved Porn Books At Board Meeting. Good. Jazz Shaw at Hat Hair, Looks like the Tennessee drag ban bill will be signed "The legislation does not ban all drag performances from public or non-age restricted venues, but does prohibit them if found to be “harmful to minors.” The bill’s Senate sponsor previously said it would be up to local prosecutors to determine how to apply the law."

At NYPo, More than half of college professors bite their tongues over cancel culture fears and John Sexton, Majority of faculty at four-year colleges fear losing their jobs over something they say.

From Breitbart, China Demands U.S. ‘Stop Rehashing’ Coronavirus Lab Leak Theory After Energy Dept. Report. Capt. Ed at Hat Hair, Plurality believes COVID-19 pandemic originated in lab leak, despite media suppression. The WaPoo goes with "the Republicans seize" variant, GOP seizes on ‘lab leak’ shift as it expands covid probes. At Bongino, FBI Director Wray Finally Admits COVID Pandemic Most Likely Originated From Wuhan Lab Leak. Herr Professor Jacobsen at LI, Yup: FBI Director Says Covid “Most Likely” Leaked From Wuhan Lab, "Christopher Wray: The “origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan.” John Sexton notes FBI Director Wray: Chinese government doing its best to 'thwart and obfuscate' investigation of COVID's origin. Sundance, Despite Previously Being Banned as Too Dangerous, John Kirby Confirms Biden White House Support for “Gain of Function” Virus Manipulation.

 Cutie Pavlich at Town Hall complains We Told You the Truth About the Wuhan Lab Leak From the Beginning and Were Punished For It. Matt Yglesias claims Lab leak has never been a conspiracy theory. At Mediaite, The Journalists Who Smeared Tom Cotton and Tarnished Their Own Reputations Over the Lab Leak Theory, with a long list of liberals who called it a conspiracy theory (or racist). Vicky Taft at PJ Media wonders Where Does Comedian Jon Stewart Go to Get His Lefty Credentials Back After COVID Report Vindicates Him? Don't care.
