Flotsam and Jetsam - RFK Jr. Brain Worm Edition

Stephen Kruiser at PJM, The Morning Briefing: Weird—I Did Have 'RFK Jr Brain Worm' on My Bingo Card R A W S A L E R T S@rawsalerts " #BREAKING : Robert F. Kennedy Jr. campaign told the press and announced that the worm that ate part of his brain would not affect his ability to serve as president." Ace, RFKJr. Told a Court During His Divorce Proceedings That a Worm Had Eaten Part of His Brain and Died Inside of His Skull, Giving Him "Cognitive Problems". "That reads like a juiced headlinebut it's actually 100% accurate. At Althouse, Small worm the size of a large worm. "RFK Jr. is my presumptive choice for President, so I'm keeping track of what the mainstream media has to say about him. They seem to be heightening the scrutiny, so let's take a look:" The Babylon Bee is on it, The Babylon Bee @TheBabylonBee,  "Dead Worm Found In RFK Jr.’s Brain Already Polling Higher Than Biden In 11 States" Insty, MORE NEUROLOGICAL ACTIVITY, TOO: Althouse's feelings hurt by "The grandson of President John F. Kennedy this week savaged his presidential-candidate cousin, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., in a series of mocking, meant-to-be-funny videos..."

Breitbart touts an AARP Poll: Trump Leads in Pennsylvania. Dave Strom at Hat Hair, AARP: Trump Winning Pennsylvania Decisively. I guess they need to find more dead voters in Philadelphia. Roll Call whines about a Rating change: Nevada a Toss-up in presidential race. "Biden’s challenge in Nevada is similar to struggles across the Sun Belt and South." At Hat Hair, Capt. Ed adds "Real Clear Politics' aggregate average for Nevada has Trump up by 4.5 points. The gap was as wide as eight-plus back in February, but Biden narrowed it a bit in April. And here's the real problem for Biden: he hasn't led a poll in the Silver State since the war in Gaza began seven months ago." 'Bonchie' at RedState thinks Joe Biden's Insane Interview With Erin Burnett Should Be the Final Straw for American Voters. At Twitchy, 'Look at His Face'! Biden STUNNED (and Furious) As CNN Host Rattles Off List of BAD Economic Data

Nick Arama at RedState notices Biden Has Big Trouble Boarding Air Force One, Embarrassingly Garbles Title of AFL-CIO President. TNP, Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, To Be Held in Contempt for not providing the audio recording of Biden's interview with Special Prosecutor Hur when subpoenaed. 

Chris Jacobs at Da Fed describes how Biden’s Student Loan Bailout Sends Taxpayer Funds To On-Campus Mobs.  at PJM Lincoln Brown is concerned about Biden's National Guard Power Grab. "Calling it a "power grab," Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) has expressed his opposition to the Biden administration's proposal to transfer members of the Air National Guard to the Space Force without the permission of state or territorial governors," (it makes sense, if you're planning on using F-35s against your domestic opponent) and Bob Spencer thinks the Biden Regime Makes It Unmistakable: We’re On Hamas’ Side Now. At NYPo, Biden Iran envoy put classified documents on hacked personal email, phone: GOP lawmakers. Capt. Ed snarks "Who does Rob Malley think he is -- Hillary Clinton? Needless to say, this is much worse (if true) in terms of a security breach than anything Trump allegedly did. Given the DoJ's insistence on prosecuting Trump for those actions, why are they dragging their feet on Malley? Or is that the only issue with Malley?"

Lincoln Brown at PJM reports on Michelle's Dinner With MAGA "As it went on, my friends and I realized we were surrounded by otherwise carefully closeted MAGAts. It's funny how the extremist or just wrong beliefs can't help but leak out, even when you least expect them, and from people you least expect. They are out there." I&I calls Democrats The Party Of ‘Death To America’. To be fair, it's only about half of them. 

TNP reports from Fulton County, Georgia, BOMBSHELL Investigation Reports ‘Improper’ 2020 Recount Procedures, THOUSANDS of Ballot Images MISSING. "The inquiry was prompted by a complaint lodged on July 8, 2022, alleging the inappropriate count of 17,852 ballots. The investigation revealed not only duplicate ballot images, implying probable multiple scanning of some ballots, but also thousands of ballot images missing." At Hat Hair, Fulton County Vindication, Master Plan Falling Apart, Democrats in Shambles! George@BehizyTweets "BREAKING: The Georgia State Election Board is considering evidence that Fulton County double counted thousands of ballots in the 2020 election If the board finds that Fulton County violated Georgia election law then they will impose fines, issue a reprimand and refer the allegations to the Attorney General's office for prosecution The board could also takeover elections in Fulton County."

Jordan Boyd at Da Fed, Trump Trial Judge Censors Federalist Writer, Former FEC Chairman From Testifying Key Defense Facts. Guy Benson at TownHall wonders (rhetorically), Why Is the Judge in Trump's New York Trial Muzzling a Key Defense Witness? Insty answers BECAUSE IT’S A KANGAROO COURT RUN BY AN IN-THE-TANK JUDGE? At NYPO, Jonathan Turley is outraged that the Judge allows Stormy Daniels to give irrelevant, salacious testimony just to humiliate Trump. The Dersh says Trump’s trial is a stupendous legal catastrophe. Capt. Ed adds "That's clearly the intent of Alvin Bragg and Judge Merchan as well." Byron York at Front Page decries The Insanity at the Heart of the Trump Trial "The fundamental insult to basic principles of justice."  Jason Cohen at Da Caller catches CNN Legal Analysts Worrying Trump Defense’s ‘Searing Cross-Examination’ Of Stormy Daniels Could Turn Jury Against Her. At TNP, Stormy Daniels’s Lawyer Michael Avenatti Says She’s Falsifying Records & Committing Fraud to Avoid Paying Trump! Dave Strom, YGTBFKM: O'Donnell Says Stormy Daniels Has 'The Modesty of a Nun'. Jacob Sullum at Reason says Stormy Daniels' 'Credibility Issues' Reflect a Broader Problem With Key Witnesses Against Trump. "New York prosecutors are relying on testimony from several people who do not seem trustworthy." Capt. Ed, "Not to mention all the perjury, too. Bragg has stretched a maybe-misdemeanor regarding ledger entries into dozens of felonies on the gossamer web of testimony from ... [checks notes] ... a porn performer who keeps changing her story, a convicted perjurer, and a gossip-rag publisher who admits making stuff up for fun and profit. The question isn't "reasonable doubt" so much as trying to figure out why anyone would believe any of these witnesses." Simon Ateba@simonateba "BREAKING - SHOCKING - YOUR REACTION: Judge Juan Merchan claimed Trump might have violated his gag order by shaking his head inside the courtroom while Stormy Daniels was testifying. The judge claimed that by shaking his head and reportedly 'audibly cursing', Trump might have intimidated the witness. This was said privately to Trump's lawyer and was not captured loudly during the testimony." Althouse cites Trump ""It is a really bad feeling to have your Constitutional Right to Free Speech, such a big part of life in our Country, so unfairly taken from you..." "... especially when all of the sleazebags, lowlifes, and grifters that you oppose are allowed to say absolutely anything that they want. It is hard to sit back and listen to lies and false statements be made against you knowing that if you respond, even in the most modest fashion, you are told by a Corrupt and Highly Conflicted Judge that you will be PUT IN PRISON, maybe for a long period of time. This Fascist mindset is all coming from D.C. It is a sophisticated hit job on Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, ME!. Judges Engoron and Kaplan, also of New York, are equally Corrupt, only in different ways. What these THUGS are doing is AN ATTACK ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, AND OUR ONCE GREAT NATION ITSELF. OUR FIRST AMENDMENT MUST STAND, FREE AND STRONG. 'GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!'"

Bryan Jung at PJM, Legislator Who Backed N.Y. Bill Used Against Trump Now Opposes It After The Tables Turned on Him. "A New York State Senator who supported a sex crimes bill that allowed E. Jean Carroll to go after former president Donald Trump now calls the legislation unconstitutional after a former colleague accused him of rape, reported the New York Post."

At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.08.24 (Abbreviated Punditocracy Edition), Twitchy notes, Rep. Adam Schiff Has a Meltdown as Another Donald Trump Trial Faces a Delay. Adam Schiff@RepAdamSchiff, "First, the Supreme Court delays Trump’s Jan 6 prosecution. Then Trump-appointed Judge Cannon postpones his trial in Florida. Now this in Georgia. The courts are deliberately delaying justice — and effectively denying it." Also, EBL MAGA Indefinite Postponment of the Trump Classified Document Case. Mia Cathell at TownHall, Georgia Court of Appeals Just Delivered Some Bad News for Fani Willis. Dave Strom, Appeals Court Considering Removing Fani Willis.

TNP notices the NYT Admits Jan. 6 National Guard Response Hampered by Military Concern Over Trump-Friendly ‘Optics’ & BLM Fallout. Hat Hair's KT sees Fire Alarm Puller Rep. Jamaal Bowman Loves Some Conspiracy TheoriesPatrick Webb@RealPatrickWebb, "BREAKING: Newly obtained internal documents reveal that the Washington, DC, police have been paying for and using online surveillance tools to monitor citizens' social media activity and track geo-locations, as well as to collect data on individual users, their friend networks, and monitor public protests."

Dave Strom, NPR CEO Refuses to Testify Before Congress Today. Da Signal, NPR’s CEO Is a No-Show at Hearing Looking Into Bias at Taxpayer-Funded Network. Capt. Ed, "Note that Maher was invited to appear, not subpoenaed, and had not reached an agreement to do so. However, since NPR gets a significant amount of its funding directly and indirectly from Congress, showing up to defend NPR against a defunding effort would probably have been the wiser choice." Next time send a subpoena. 

Althouse, "But critics like me aren’t asking the Times to abandon its independence. We’re asking the Times to recognize that it isn’t living up to its own standards..." ""... of truth-telling and independence when it obfuscates the stakes of the 2024 election, covers up for Trump’s derangement, and goes out of its way to make Biden look weak." Writes Dan Froomkin, in "New York Times editor Joe Kahn says defending democracy is a partisan act and he won’t do it." (Press Watch)." From the Pipeline, The AP Leans Left on 'Climate Change.' No shit, Sherlock. At ET, Super PAC Backing RFK Jr. Says It Is Suing Meta for Censoring Documentary, "The film has been viewed over 12 million times on X, the social media platform now owned by Elon Musk, who vowed to restore free speech."

Tom Nickels at Front Page wonders Will Presidential Meddling With Title IX Be the End of Sports? "Biden places countless women and girls in uncomfortable -- and unsafe -- spaces." Larry Sand at Am Great, Undeniably Unentitled "The Title IX update is perverse, and many states are fighting." Mary Chastain at LI, National Women’s Law Center Seeks to Intervene in Defense of Males in Female College Sports. “Their attempts to exclude transgender women from NCAA sports actually hurt all women…”  From HE, Womanhood is erased, even as Big Pharma profits from women’s bodies.

Virginia Kruta at Da Wire, Insane Leftists Frame Family Formation As Sinister Right-Wing Conspiracy. Fox, Boy Scouts of America making this big change to be more inclusive. "The rebranding will go into effect next year when it will become known as 'Scouting America'", but Girl Scout to retain one sex. 

Larry Elder at Front Page suggests for Campus Protests: Switch Out the Word ‘Jew’ and Replace it With ‘Black’. John Sexton notices A Historian's Take on Student Protests Leaves Out a Few Things. At Da Caller, Foolish College Antics Accelerate Downward Spiral Of Higher Education. Hey, foolish antics are what college is all about! 770 KTTH, UW professor assaulted at autonomous Liberated Zone as admin keeps cops away. Red Guards. At CJ, Liel Leibovitz begs My Kingdom for an Adult. "Amid the depressing dominance of childish and thuggish behavior on campuses, some public officials have emerged to show real leadership." 'Becca Downs at TownHall, These Democrats Refused to Stand by Israel in Face of Antisemitic College Protests. From Fox, Billionaire family bankrolling both anti-Israel groups and these battleground Democrats, "The wealthy Pritzker family has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats so far this election cycle." Capt. Ed, "Well, that's awkward. Or at least it should be. Let's hope that the RNC, NRCC, and the campaigns themselves make those connections clear to voters in these districts."
