Flotsam and Jetsam - Scott Drops Out

He's a nice guy, and therefor probably not suitable as President. NYPo, Tim Scott suspends 2024 presidential campaign after failing to gain any ground on Trump in polls. Hat Hair's KT, Tim Scott Suspends His Campaign in a Most Unusual Way, on Trey Gowdy's Fox show. 

Meanwhile back in the world of real candidates, I&I finds Biden-Trump In A Dead Heat As Women, Minorities Lift Trump. Althouse features Madison Square Garden, filled with people who cheer for Donald Trump, Tucker, Dana White and Kid Rock. Also,"We pledge to you that we will root out the communists, Marxists, fascists and the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country that lie and steal and cheat on elections." "Said Donald Trump, in a speech yesterday, quoted in "Trump calls political enemies ‘vermin,’ echoing dictators Hitler, Mussolini/On Veterans Day, the former president vowed to 'root out' his liberal opponents, drawing backlash from historians who say his rhetoric is reminiscent of authoritarians" (WaPo)." At NewMax, Trump Vows 'Largest Domestic Deportation Operation' in US History and Trump's Vow to World, N.H. Voters: 'I Will Be Your Peacemaker'. From TNP, STAY CLASSY: Bill Burr’s Wife Nia Hill Appears to Flip Trump Off at UFC 295 Event. Who, and why should I care? 

Hat Hair notes NBC News Gets Checked in Desperate DeSantis Fact Check Jonathan Turley @JonathanTurley "...The correction also implicates millions of parents who regularly say that they “flew the kids home” for the holidays. NBC is suggesting that you should say “I supplied money to allow my kids to purchase tickets to have United Airlines fly them home.”" The Victory Girls see Ron DeSantis Defy Ronna McDaniel. Beege Welborn adds "Interestingly enough, McDaniel has now blinked. *snicker* She’s such a waste." Hat Hair's KT notes Ron DeSantis Didn't Back Down and the RNC Caved. At TownHall, Kurt Schlichter in his inimitable style says Resign, Ronna! Ben Bartee at PJM thinks Vivek’s ‘No Neocon’ Pledge Hits at the Heart of the War Machine.

TNP offers DATA: 40% Want a Leader Who Will Break Rules to Fix America. But which ones? Roger Kimball at Am Great thinks Karl Misinterprets Polls; Voters Do Want Trump "Some 15,000 people showed up for a rally down the street from the debate." Rally goers are the already won. We need to win more from people who don't go to rallies. At Da Fed, Sam Mangold-Lennett tries to explains How Republicans Can Exploit Democrats’ Intersectional Obsession To Peel Muslim Voters Away. It might work at the margins, but overall, Muslims are too enthralled by the welfare state. From the Pittsburgh P-G, Salena Zito wonders while Abortion was a winning issue for Democrats, but will it be in ’24? The Free Bacon reports that In Pennsylvania, Dave McCormick Takes on 'the Most Inconsequential Senator', Bob Casey.

TownHall's Sarah Arnold identifies Joe Biden’s Shameful Moment of the Week, getting lost at the Veteran's ceremony. If you can't even get the ceremonial part of the job right . . . From Twitchy, James Woods Goes Straight-Up COME GET SOME on Sleepy Joe With Multiple Posts Exposing Biden's America. Breitbart, The Biden Doctrine — Treating the Slaughter of Jews as a P.R. Crisis. Nick Arama at RedState thinks Jen Psaki's Defense of Joe Biden Would Make Terrific Ad for Trump and the GOP "Psaki: "If elected to a second term, Donald Trump would prosecute anyone he deems an enemy, unleash troops on protesters, and essentially unravel the rule of law as we know it ... But sure, Joe Biden is 3 years older and occasionally trips over things."" Sounds good to me. At Am Think Vicky Berger thinks Biden is ‘Fighting’ Hamas for Biden’s Interests

In the Annals of the Biden Crime Syndicate, Margot Cleveland at Da Fed notices David Weiss Gives More Conflicting Testimony About His Authority To Charge Hunter Biden

From Da Caller, How Many Perverts Did The FBI Ignore While It Chased Trump Supporters? At least one. Hat Hair cites the NYT, FBI 'Examining' Whether Adams Greased the Skids for Turkish Government in NYC. Beege Welborn comments "Guess the message here is “Don’t go off on Biden in public,” huh? Hopefully this isn’t paywalled – I went straight into it from Twitter. If they managed to crimp what little backbone and independence Adams has shown with this intimidation, the City will really be in a hurt locker. Gonna be interesting." Jordan Boyd at Da Fed observes that the FBI, DOJ Refuse To Call Covenant School Shooting An Anti-White Hate Crime Even After Racist Manifesto Is Leaked. The narrative uber alles. CBS News Balmer hears FBI Director Wray raises concerns about selection of Maryland as site for bureau's new headquarters. He should be grateful they didn't take my advice to move it to Fargo, ND.  J.B. Shurk at Am Think thinks If You Oppose Tyranny, You’re on the FBI’s AGAAVE List. At HE, The First Amendment means we get to make jokes—Douglass Mackey should not be serving time for a meme unless, of course, you make fun of Democrats. 

PJM's Vicky Taft observes the Media in Panic Mode Over Questions About Whether They Knew in Advance About Hamas Attack on Israel. Hat Hair's Dave Strom is irate that MIT Didn't Suspend Protestors Violating Rules Because They Could Be Deported, actual non-citizens Palestinians attacking Jews. At Campus Reform, MIT student activist blames school for lackluster response to anti-Semitism. The College Fix has a Report: Harvard Grad Student Captured on Film Accosting Classmate Removed From Proctor Role. "Elom Tettey-Tamaklo and other keffiyeh-clad demonstrators surrounded Jewish student at protest while shouting, 'SHAME!'" Ed Driscoll at Insty, THE HOLLOW MEN: "Someone at X said that the Cornell student arrested for making threats against Jewish students was probably just trying too hard to fit in and win approval of his peers and took it a step too far. My view is that there’s no just about it…the desire to fit in and win approval is very often the reason why people commit evil acts. I’m reminded of something CS Lewis said: “Of all the passions, the passion for the Inner Ring is most skillful in making a man who is not yet a very bad man do very bad things.”The above sentence is from a talk that Lewis gave at King’s College in 1944." Chuck Gasparino at NYPo warns Congress is planning to turn up the heat on major universities about their funding. We'll see. Paul Krause at Da Fed explains How The ‘Brutal Minds’ Staffing Our Universities Brainwash The Next Generation Hugh Fitzgerald at Front Page on Angelina Jolie: Moralist and Geopolitician "An assessment of the starlet extraordinaire's remarks about Israel." A great actress, an elegant woman, and crazy as a bedbug. She even eats bugs. At Hat Hair, Canceled Michael Ramirez Cartoon Nothing But a Truth Bomb.

Sabrina Carpenter
At Da Caller, NJ Teachers Union Calls For Ending Basic Skills Test Requirement, just like Oregon! Also, Dem Senate Candidate Linked To Pro-Transgender Group That Supports Rescinding Parental Rights. Evita Alfonso-Duffy at Da Fed notices Sabrina Carpenter’s Feminist Music Video Celebrates The Gruesome Killing Of Men. You'll never generate any controversy doing something as ordinary as that. I admit, I had never heard of Sabrina Carpenter before, though, so I guess it worked.

At Am Great the great Victor Davis Hanson expounds on The Damage of the ‘White Privilege’ Smear. "It's past time for Americans to reject all racial stereotyping"

The Wombat has Rule Five Sunday: Meanwhile, In The Mountains and FMJRA 2.0: New York. Feh. up on time and under budget at The Other McCain.
