Flotsam and Jetsam on a Rainy Sunday

Jazz Shaw at Hat Hair hears Hunter: I'm embarrassed about the things on what totally wasn't my laptop. Totally incoherent testimony at a deposition in suit against the shop owner who took possession of the laptop he abandoned in Delaware. From NYPo, Comer, Marjorie Taylor Greene demand information on Hunter Biden hookers, claiming they may be sex trafficking victims. Charlotte Hazzard at JTN reports Rep. Steube says Impeachment inquiry into Biden likely to happen in 'the next couple of weeks'. At Breitbart, Comer: ‘I Do Believe We Have the Votes for Impeachment Inquiry’

'Bonchie' at Red State, Biden Is Back at the G20, and the Embarrassment Has Already Started. "Things started off with a repeat of something that seems to happen to Biden every time he meets with world leaders. Namely, he gets confused while appearing for just about any photograph." Insty,COPYCAT JOE: Biden accused of new plagiarism by ex-Harvard journal editor. "Earlier this week, Heritage Foundation Vice President Roger Severino outlined his alleged experience in 2000 when he edited a Biden-penned article on civil rights and was “shocked by the plagiarism” he found." At the Free Beacon, WATCH: Biden Campaign Ad Highlights His Ability To Walk, Take Trips. Yes, necessary for a Preznit, but kind of a minimum. Even Andy Sullivan thinks It's Time For Biden To Leave The Stage. Althouse, "The strangest thing about this harrowing circumstance is that no mainstream Democrat is challenging Biden for the nomination." "Writes Jonathan Chait, in "Biden or Bust/Why isn’t a mainstream Democrat challenging the president?" (NY Magazine). What's so "strange" and "harrowing" about party discipline? The incumbent President is running for a second term. It's completely normal that he'll be his party's nominee. Chait doesn't concede that there's anything wrong with Biden, so his agonizing looks silly.'' Brietbart, Bidenomics Isn’t Working: Vast Majority of Americans Say Economy Is Bad And Getting Worse. Jesse Watters@JesseBWatters. "Joe Biden has just ordered a political hit on RFK Jr. The Kennedy says the DNC has just fixed the primary to make it impossible for him to win." At WaEx Paul Bedard cites Zogby: ‘Catastrophic’ disaster brewing for Biden reelection. Such predictions are always premature. From PM, Gavin Newsom says Kamala Harris is 'naturally the one lined up' to succeed Joe Biden. Atop Da Hill, Pelosi will run for reelection in 2024, or as the Babylon Bee puts it, Pelosi Announces Bid For Two More Years Of Insider Trading

At ADN America,  Georgia special grand jury recommended charges for Sens. Lindsey Graham, Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. From ET, Sen. Lindsey Graham Reacts After Fulton County Grand Jury Recommended Criminal Charges. Not happy, to say the least. At Da Wire, Jordan Investigates Trump Special Counsel Prosecutor Over ‘Abusive’ Tactics.

Also at Althouse, “The mug shot did good for him. They’re just grasping at straws to try and get him to stop running. And he’s running anyway.” "Said Lydia Lozano of Summerset, S.D., "who wore Mr. Trump’s mug shot on a blue T-shirt with the outline of an American flag," quoted in "‘I’m Being Indicted for You,’ Trump Tells South Dakota Rally/In his first rally since his fourth indictment, the former president focused on his Republican rivals and President Biden, as some in the crowd wore Mr. Trump’s mug shot on their T-shirts""  From the Peacock, Trump civil fraud trial in New York will last nearly three months. "Judge Arthur Engoron said in an order that the bench trial, set to begin on Oct. 2, is not expected to wrap up until Dec. 22." From the Florida Record, another 14th Amendment try, Attorney considers state lawsuit to ban Trump from the 2024 ballot "U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg, who was appointed by former U.S. Pres. Barack Obama, dismissed Caplan’s complaint for lack of standing."

At Hat Hair, Run over and kill a GOP teenager? 5 years. Compare to some recent J6 convictions.

From Da Wire, Megyn Kelly To Interview Trump For First Time In 7 Years: ‘It’s Going To Be Spicy’ Sounds like fun. Sundance at CTH is suspicious, As Expected, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem Endorses President Donald Trump for 2024 Nomination but at Red State Neil McCabe reports Brick Suit Tells RedState Noem's Trump Endorsement Puts 'Everybody on Notice' First I've heard of 'Brick Shirt.' "The MAGA social media celebrity called up on stage by President Donald J. Trump at a 2018 rally told RedState when he saw South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem endorse Trump for president Friday night in Rapid City, he thought Noem gave Trump a huge boost." Never-anybody-but-Trump sundance happy that Astroturf Fakery Has Consequences – DeSantis Team Now Says Second Place in Iowa Is Good Enough. At NYPo, Republicans get major boost as ‘fired up’ young men lean right in record numbers. It's the woke BS. 

At Hat Hair, Musk sues California over content moderation. "Elon Musk’s X Corp. is asking a federal court to overturn a California law that attempts to control toxic online discourse by requiring social media platforms to disclose their content moderation policies.. . . Lawmakers portray the law, which passed easily last year as AB587, as promoting transparency but X Corp. argues that it goes beyond simple disclosure and requires companies to provide detailed information about how they evaluate and regulate ill-defined categories of political speech."  Althouse, "The judges wrote that the White House and the Office of the Surgeon General had 'coerced the platforms to make their moderation decisions by way of intimidating messages and threats of adverse consequences'..." 

"... and 'significantly encouraged the platforms’ decisions by commandeering their decision-making processes.' The appellate court also found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had used coercion in its interactions with the companies, which took down 50 percent of the material online that the bureau’s agents flagged as troublesome...."

From "Appeals Court Rules White House Overstepped 1st Amendment on Social Media/A Fifth Circuit panel partly upheld restrictions on the Biden administration’s communications with online platforms about their content" (NYT).

As often, the fun is in the comment section. 

Hat Hair's Beege Wellborn reports CA Assembly PASSES AB 957, the "affirm your child's gender choices or ELSE" law. PM, California Assembly passes bill allowing judges to award custody to parent that will allow child to undergo sex change. I don't see how it survives a court challenge. From Fox, Oklahoma district that hired drag queen to be elementary school principal faces backlash: 'Unimaginable'. "'This is the liberal insanity every parent wants out of the classroom,' Oklahoma's education superintendent said." How did that happen? Stacy McCain explains in The Destructive Force of ‘Equality.’ Alexandra Marshall@ellymelly "How can Australia have a Minister for Women when most people in Parliament can't define a #woman???"

From the College Fix, Politically polarized universities alienate Republicans, professor says. Thanks, Professor Obvious. At Reuters, Vassar College accused of underpaying, discriminating against female professors

Karol Markowicz at NYPo wants you to Never forget: It was Randi Weingarten and the Bidens who sacrificed a generation of kids to Covid lockdowns. At Hat Hai  KT throws the hypocrisy flag  on the Chicago Teachers Union president who sends son to private school after labeling school choice supporters 'fascists' and Jazz Shaw discusses how The war on merit in public schools continues and it's blatantly racist

Eddie Scarry at Da Fed reads the New York Times: Eric Adams Is A Democrat So It’s No Longer Hateful To Oppose Uncontrolled Mass Migration.

From NewBusters, Why Does NPR Hate Democracy? Can't Stand One Parent Started 'Book Ban' of Ibram X. Kendi.
