Flotsam and Jetsam - Memorial Weekend Marks Beginning of Campaign Season

Breitbart reports  Ron DeSantis Campaign Raised $8.2 Million on Launch Day, not bad for a "glitch." Insty, THERE ARE LEFTIES WHO THINK, THEY’RE JUST NOT EMPLOYED IN THE MSM: Left-wing Breakfast Club slams Dems over DeSantis Twitter launch criticism. "The notion that being popular enough to overload the servers and raise record money is somehow a failure seems odd to me." But at I&I, Governor Ron’s Twitter Misadventure: Failure To Launch, Times Three. Scott McKay at Am Spec, see DeSantis Dive Into the Muck. "Now that Florida’s governor is in the 2024 race, we’ll find out how tough he is." Eddie Scarry at Da Fed,warns DeSantis Introducing Himself To People Who Already Love Him Is Not A Winning Strategy. Keith Rothfus at Am Spec asks Can We Ditch the Detached DeSantis Narrative? "The attacks on his character are not only untrue but also irrelevant, given his record in Florida and the House." There was a detached DeSantis narrative? I missed that. Never DeSantis sundance at CTH is just winding up, with DeSantis 103 – Jack’s Magic Coffee Shop Continues, Elon Musk Makes Election Interference More VisibleDeSantis 104 – Pay to Play, Florida Govt Officials Asking Tallahassee Lobbyists to Donate to Ron DeSantis Election Effort and Donald Trump’s America First -vs- Ron DeSantis and the Multinationals. Jon Gabriel at AZ Central opines DeSantis or Trump? The choice is clear if Republicans actually want the White House. "Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is the only GOP candidate taking the fight to Biden - with the credentials to back it up." Tom Jackson at Hat Hair VIP thinks There's plenty of time to tell tales of Florida's DeSantis boom. Also at Hat Hair VIP Matt Vespa wonders Could This Prevent a DeSantis-Trump Primary Bloodbath? Better staffing by DeSantis? Doug Murray at NYPo suggests hopefully that DeSantis vs. Newsom would be a ‘24 battle of ideas — not a Biden-Trump clownshow. Breitbart, has a Poll: Donald Trump’s Net Favorability Rating Reaches All-Time High, but then, that's a low bar. Also, Vivek Ramaswamy Says LinkedIn ‘Locked’ His Account: ‘Big Tech Election Interference Has Begun’, like it ever really stopped. I&I editorializes, The Republican Primary Is Wide Open — And That’s A Good Thing.

 Da Caller has a POLL: Majority Of Americans Think Biden Second Term Would Be ‘Disaster’ Or ‘Setback’. Ben Whedon at JTN, Biden primary bid limping as RFK Jr., Williamson gain footing: CNN poll, but do they seriously believe the Democrats will allow their own voters to decide? However, Hat Hair's Capt. Ed speculates "Neither of these fringe candidates will get anywhere near the nomination. However, if they’re still doing this well by December and make it onto the New Hampshire ballot, we may be looking at an LBJ 1968 event — an embarrassment that could force Biden to withdraw, with all sorts of chaos following among Democrats." Joshua Mitchell at Am Great worries about The Formidable Candidacy of Joe Biden. "Who can weaken the identity politics spell that makes an otherwise weak incumbent into a truly formidable contender for reelection?" At Am Think, Steve Young thinks about Entropy, Joe Biden, and the Progressive Left. "Joe Biden’s decline into incompetence is more than a personal journey towards life’s end, it is an allegory for the likely collapse of the Progressive Left and the Democrat Party now under its rule."

WaPoo reports that Yellin has refined the estimate of the "drop dead" date of the debt ceiling crisis to June 5, Debt ceiling negotiators race to cement deal before June 5 deadline. Meanwhile, Slow Joe went on vacation, Breitbart, House Democrat Expressed Disbelief as Biden Heads Back to Delaware for Memorial Day Weekend. At Am Con, The Gamblers, "Democrats bet big on Republican incompetence in the debt ceiling fight. Republicans called their bluff." Jim Geraghty at NRO hears House Democrats Worry That President Ice Cream Is Botching the Debt-Ceiling Fight. Capt. Ed, "I’d be surprised if we don’t have a deal by now or later tonight, just because Biden’s not going to win this one anyway. May as well throw in the towel altogether and move on. But the complaints about Biden’s lack of communication and competence from Democrats at this stage are absolutely hilarious. They foisted President Ice Cream on us, and they’re stuck with him just as much as we are." From Da Caller, Congress Goes On Vacation Days Away From Financial Meltdown. I'll believe it's a crisis when they start acting like it's a crisis. AEIR wonders Has the Disinflation Process Stalled? "The latest inflation data is not what Federal Reserve officials were hoping for." Capt. Ed comments "In other words … grab your shorts. I don’t the stall is too dramatic, but monetary policy alone clearly isn’t working. We need a strong agenda of supply-side policies, but we’ll never get them from the Biden administration and the Democrats."

Shawn Fleetwood at Da Fed notices that Republicans Use House Committee Hearing To Demolish Democrats’ Bogus Election Lies. At UncoverDC, Catastrophic “Loss of Control” Data Breach in NY Elections, just how Democrats wanted it.

PJM's Matt Margolis hears Comer Says Biden Linked to $5 Million Bribe While VP, But FBI Is Obstructing Investigation. Ace, Comer: Joe Biden Is Part of a $5 Million Bribe Scheme, and I'll Charge Wray with Contempt of Congress if He Continues Hiding the Documents Establishing This  "The FBI claims that they can't find the document, because searching for "biden" brings up too many results. Comer wrote them back, telling them to search for "biden," "june 30, 2020" (the date of the document) and "5 million" -- the amount of the bribe. Wray won't do that, of course. CRIMINALS NEED TO GO TO PRISON." Comer has the document, of course, he just needs the FBI to produce it to prove it was really theirs. Breitbart cites Marjorie Taylor Greene: FBI Director Actively ‘Protecting’ Bidens by Stonewalling Congressional Subpoena. True. Da Caller highlights Oversight Could ‘Destroy’ Biden’s 2024 Campaign, MTG Says. In the IRS branch of Biden Crime Family saga, Mary Chastain at LI notes the  IRS Whistleblower ‘Saw Deviations From the Normal Process’ in Hunter Biden Investigation. “There were multiple steps that were slow-walked — were just completely not done — at the direction of the Department of Justice.” Margot Cleveland at Da Fed is incensed that Emails Show Ron Wyden’s Office Lied About IRS Whistleblower ‘Backing Out’ Of Senate Meeting.

Bob Maistros at Am Great, Durham to Conservatives: Fuhgeddaboudit, "John Durham delivered the wronged Right an unmistakable punch to the gut." Tristan Justice at Da Fed sees that The FBI Knows What Car Was Used In J6 DNC Pipe Bomb, But Refuses To Identify Prime Suspect. Very, very fishy. At MRC TV, Whistleblower: Bank of America Provided FBI with List of Customers’ Purchases – Republicans Launch Probe, anybody near J6 who purchased a gun using BOA cards etc. Chose your banking accordingly. Nick Arama at Red State astounded that the FBI Raided Home of Media Consultant, Dem Politician Over 'Embarrassing' Tucker Carlson Videos. Jack Cashill at Am Think finds it odd, 18 years for J6er, wrist slap for wannabe Nazi assassin "Curious, too, is that authorities took no precautions before searching the truck.  The last time a U-Haul was involved in an attack on federal property, 168 people were killed.  Timothy McVeigh and his accomplice blew up the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City with 2,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate." Did they know something ahead of time?

 Bob Spencer at PJM, Corrupt Bedfellows: SPLC and FBI Working Together to Frame Catholics as Terrorists. SPLC has been discredited for a long time, but the FBI, and other fed agencies continue to use them as the key to identifying hate groups, just because they only identify hate from the right, and they continually exaggerate. At HE, Biden’s DHS used taxpayer-funded 'anti-terrorism’ program to demonize conservatives using Antifa propaganda. Ace, Media Research Center Exposes DHS' Funding of Radical Leftwing Groups Which Label Right-Leaning Organizations As Linked to Naziism and Domestic Terrorism. "And why would they do that? To lay a predicate for siccing Merrick Garland's DoJ on any political enemies of The Regime."

At Pop Mech, This Stanford Professor With CIA Ties Says Aliens Are ‘100 Percent’ Already Here "Extraterrestrial intelligence hasn’t just visited us, he says: “it’s been here a long time, and it’s still here.”" He may be right, but he may be crazy.

From Breitbart, After Cooperating With Feds at Twitter, Jack Dorsey Invokes JFK Call to Destroy CIA, FBI, NSAjack@jack "Splinter the CIA, NSA, and FBI into a thousand pieces and scatter them into the winds.… Joe Pags Pagliarulo@JoeTalkShow "says the guy who was in charge when the alphabet organizations were using @twitter to do all sorts of dastardly deeds. Tell us the one again about how you had nothing to do with censoring all info about Hunter Biden's laptop. Cmon!" Atop Da Summit, Greenwald: Regime Journalists Promote The ‘Right’ Conspiracy Theories To Be Successful, “Journalists who spread conspiracy theories that the CIA wants them to spread get promoted, and the journalists who question the conspiracy theories of the CIA get destroyed.”

At Da Fed, Sam Mangold-Lenett calls Pride Month A Cynical Exercise In State-Enforced Homosexuality. PJM's Lincoln Brown wonders, rhetorically, Why Is the Indy Youth Carnival Barring Parents? Elizabeth M. Economou at Am Think thinks about Washington State vs. Parents on Gender Transitioning. Hat Hair's Beege Wellborn San Fran progs went to war over "family" - how'd that go? 
Jason Rantz on KTTH Radio @jasonrantz "Activists pushed the San Francisco Democratic Party to not recognize the Westside Family Democratic Club. A vulgar activist said the word "family" is a "common dog whistle on the right" & one claimed it's a racist & fascist organization that's secretly a Republican group." The video is amazing. 

At Am Spec, On Drag Queens and the Methodist Breakup "Churches lately have gone all in on these drag shows."  Twitchy, Nun too soon: You’ll never guess who was a member of the Dodgers drag nun group, luggage thief Sam Brinton.

Ace, "Nobody Expected It To Go On This Long:" Entire Beer Industry Is Shocked at Dylan Mulvaney Backlash. "Yes, conservatives have been well-behaved little corporate sheep until now. But no longer. 
Now we are wolves that pack-attack corporations and tear them into little wet pieces." Mess with our kids, mess with our wives, just don't mess with our beer. Even if it is weak, bland beer. Hat Hair's John Sexton thinks The left is doing to CNN what the right is doing to Bud Light. From Da Wire, Conservative Journalist Calls AP’s Bluff On Claim About ‘Violent Confrontations’ Against Target. From Breitbart, AP Claims, Without Evidence, Target Boycotts Became ‘Violent’ — Then Stealth-Edits Story. Capt. Ed. "That’s not the only false claim that AP has been stealth editing this week. Yesterday, they began stealth-editing the false claim that a Florida school had “banned” Amanda Gorman’s book of poetry." At Da Caller, The Media’s Latest ‘Book Ban’ Story Appears To Be Completely Unfounded. Meanwhile, from Fox, Target partners with org pushing for kids' genders to be secretly changed in schools without parental consent. "'We... continue to support their mission,' Target Corporation said about GLSEN" Breitbart, North Face Slammed over Ad Featuring Drag Queen Urging Viewers to ‘Come Out’ in Nature. Ace, The Walt Disney Company is Partnering with a Gay Group Called "EqualPride" to Provide "Diverse Content" for Its Failing Streaming Service

John Sexton, Tennessee judge says families can object to release of Nashville shooter's manifesto, but he's not sure why. "Wednesday, a judge ruled that those parents have standing to object to the release of the manifesto and set a hearing to argue whether these documents will ever see the light of day."

At NYPo, Shellyne Rodriguez released by Bronx judge over Post machete threat on OR. It's New York, of course. Campus Reform reports UConn to require students to pass ‘Anti-Black Racism’ course in order to graduate "The mandatory one-credit class will be included as part of the university's core curriculum at the start of the 2024-2025 academic year." So you need to go the UConn to learn how to practice Anti-Black Racism. From the Martin Center, How Our College Leaders “Cull the Herd” "A firing at Bakersfield College shows that tenure is no match for leftist orthodoxy."

  1. DeSantis is the next to last weapon that the deep state has to defeat Trump and us. Their last weapon is AI managing the election returns so that is appears that the democrat has a slow steady gain on the republican. No need for Dominion spikes at 4 AM.
