Flotsam and Jetsam - One is the Loneliest Number

Althouse discovers The saddest, loneliest Althouse blog tag: "Biden the healer." "I went back today, looking for "Biden the healer" in my archive, because I've been thinking how much better Biden might be doing — and, more importantly, how much better this country might be doing — if Biden had followed the path of healing — of bringing us together. But Biden was and is a divider. Maybe January 6th was too much of a temptation, such great raw material for tearing us apart. He could have said — like Lincoln — "with malice toward none, with charity for all" and forgiven everyone involved and called upon all of us — on his side and the other side — to "bind up the nation's wounds." But he didn't do it. And now it's too late." 

Hat Hair's Dave Strom, Darkness Vs. Light and They Are Delusional. At WaEx, Biden is desperate. Robby Soave at Reason demonstrates Biden Spreads Misinformation About Trump Calling for a 'Unified Reich'. "Where are the fact-checkers?" From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.24.24, Da Geller Reports , Trump Storms the Bronx, Draws Over 30K To Bronx Rally In NY’s Bluest County, at The Federalist New Yorkers Slam Bidenflation, Border Crisis, And Lawfare At Bronx Rally, and Twitchy, Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) Tries To Play The Race Card On Trump’s Bronx Rally & Gets Buried By The Receipts.Ace sees 25,000 Rally for Trump in the South Bronx, Leaving AOC Sputtering With Flop Sweat Glistening In Her Mustache "Shave your mustache, Madame. I must insist you shave your mustache immediately." Roger Kimball at Da Spec thinks Trump’s bumper Bronx rally is a bad omen for Biden, "He promised to return to New York and sort out the anarchy." Anxious anxiously whines Trump bombs the Bronx. The NYPo ed board notes that Stuck with a record of failure, Biden has resorted to outright vote-buying. At WaEx, a poll shows the Biden economy marred by high cost of living driving voters back to Trump. Speaking of vote buying the Peacock whimpers Biden’s gasoline sale likely won’t have a major impact on summer pump prices. Natalia Mittelstadt at JTN reports  Ohio governor calls special session to pass measure allowing Biden on November ballot "“I’ve waited. I’ve been patient. And my patience has run out,” Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said." But at the TN Star, Legislative Fix to Put Biden on Ohio Ballot Unlikely. Next time, read the rules. Vicky Taft at PJM tells us Don't Laugh: Here's How Joe Could Pull Off a 'Heroic' Escape from the Brutal 2024 Campaign. "Here's the answer that would please everyone. Assuming Hunter's cases really go to trial — a big if — Joe would pardon Hunter, who then wouldn't go to prison, and since that pardon would be a presidential abuse of power, Joe would take the political L and resign. It would be a win-win. No one involved in politics would be sorry to see him go."

Speaking of Hunter, NewsMax, Hunter Biden's Lawyers Expected at Final Hearing Before His Gun Trial. From Fox, Hunter Biden is in court in Delaware. Here's what he doesn't want the jury to hear.  "Hunter Biden doesn't want a jury to hear about the sordid details of his personal life as he faces federal gun charges." OTP, Judge In Hunter Biden Gun Trial Reins In References To ‘Extravagant Lifestyle.’ WaEx,  Judge issues key rulings in Hunter Biden gun case ahead of June trial.

John Solomon and Steve Richards at JTN,  Exclusive: Feds secretly knew for years Joe Biden met with son’s Chinese partners on official trip. "Hunter Biden wrote his father was so enamored with China's communist leader "they all most kissed," new evidence shows." Jonathan Turley is shocked, shock, by The Spy Who Loved Me? Morris Reportedly Protected by CIA in Hunter Biden Investigation. "It is a testament to the level of bias in the mainstream media that this story is not the sole focus of every media outlet in America. Imagine if the CIA intervened to stop an investigation into a donor maintaining one of the Trump children and supporting his effort to blunt any investigation into corruption. MSNBC would make it ongoing special programming with its own time slot." Capt. Ed at Hat Hair adds "Maybe, but the true testament to mainstream-media bias was in the performative manner in which "news" outlets declared their refusal to cover the Hunter Biden laptop story in October 2020. The same media outlets that went nuts over the Steele dossier's compilation of bad gossip about "pee tapes" and Trump earlier sniffed that the laptop story was beneath their dignity and reportorial threshold. It's corruption, through and through, and it's not just at the CIA and DoJ."

Judge Netburn said the danger the serial rapist posed to female prisoners is "overblown."" At Da Wire, Biden Nominee Netburn Greenlit Secret Search Of Journalist’s Emails Over Ashley Biden’s Diary

At the Slantic (cited at Hat Hair),  I Took Out Soleimani - And We Still Haven't Learned the Lesson. Capt. Ed opines "This isn't just a lesson about Iran but also about all malign states and non-state actors. Strength deters, and weakness provokes. Reagan knew this, although he forgot on occasion, such as in Lebanon in the early 1980s. Joe Biden has allowed weakness to become almost irresistibly provocative and Israel is paying the price for it. Arguably, so is Ukraine. The only people who haven't learned the lesson are the people in the Biden administration."

At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.24.24, Don Surber: Trump has a Republican problem. "The public wants a winner. FJB and Republican senators are losers." From Matt Continentti at the Free Bacon, Trump's New New Majority "How to reward the new members of Trump's coalition."

Jacob Sullum at Reason is amazed Prosecutors Are Still Hedging on Exactly What 'Crime' Trump Tried To 'Aid' or 'Conceal'. "This week the judge presiding over Trump's trial ruled that jurors do not have to agree on any particular legal theory." Trump is bad and we hates him is sufficient. Capt. Ed,Capt. Ed, "And in Cohen's testimony on Monday, he admitted to doing a lot of legal work that normally would get covered by a monthly retainer fee, such as indicated in these records. Todd Blanche forced Cohen to describe other client arrangements at the same time that paid Cohen higher retainer fees for less work than he performed for Trump and his family. The records aren't actually false, in other words, let alone designed to cover up some other crime." Matt Walsh Show@MattWalshShow "How The Trump Trial Has Backfired Spectacularly On The Democrats."
