Imagine believing this

Twitchy: "Yeah, Go With THAT Strategy: Axios Says Hollywood Stars Could Be the Key to Biden's Campaign."

In case you hadn't noticed, the producers of the Academy Awards had to tell actors to STFU because Americans were tired of being lectured to by Hollywood phonies.

Hey, how's the box office lately?  Have you considered making another "strong girlboss" movie?

NYT is gonna NYT

Which means: simping for Democrats.  Althouse: "The Biden campaign is a disaster and this is what the NY Times dredges up?"
This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen in The New York Times.
Competition is fierce!

Time to recalibrate the "battleground states"

Red State: "Shock Polls: Trump Edges Biden in Two Blue States That Haven't Gone With the GOP for President in Decades"

Those states are Virginia and Minnesota.  

Real Clear Polling has a running update of seven battleground states but - let's face it - four of them are going to Trump.  (Arizona, Nevada, North Carolina and Georgia.)  The battleground has shifted.  Time to add Virginia, Minnesota, and how about Maine

Joe ain't got no rizz

Ace: "NYT: Biden Is Trying to Get TikTokers and "Influencers" on His Side But They Don't Trust Him and Think He's Cringe"

The subtext of this story is that, denials notwithstanding, the Biden campaign is paying influencers to shill for Uncle Joe.

The slightest of pushbacks

PJ Media: "Even the WH Correspondents’ Association Is Sick and Tired of Biden's Press Conference 'Rules'."
She concluded the statement with what sounds like a barb at Biden: “WHCA would welcome more opportunities to pose a range of questions to the president in a press conference setting.”

It's telling that even the more sycophantic press members see fit to push back against the "rules" that Biden insists govern his press conferences. It makes one wonder if they're beginning to get tired of his shtick, too.
Maybe!  But you ain't gonna get that press conference.  Also: Biden won't debate.

Sweden leads the way for Europe

Wall Street Journal: "Europe Follows Sweden in Tilting to the Populist Right - The new right’s success has alerted liberals to the threat to social cohesion from mass immigration."

Wonder why the immigrant backlash started in Sweden?  Probably all the grenade attacks: "Sweden’s new normal: Bombs in the suburbs on a weeknight.

Nothing will happen

He's a Democrat.  Fox News: "House votes to hold Garland in contempt, refer him for criminal charges at own DOJ" - "Republicans went after Garland for not handing over the Hur-Biden audio tapes."

Have you considered calling them "racist"?

Ace: ""Far-Right" Parties Make Big GAINZZZ in European Parliament and the Leftwing Media Is Angry."

No kidding.  The hyperventilation on NPR this afternoon was something else.  Positively apocalyptic.  Whelp, you didn't want to protect the borders and this is whatcha got, Europe.

More insight from the Paper of Record:

The threats to democracy are coming from inside the house

Jonathan Turley: "Can democracy survive the ‘defenders of democracy’?" - "The most obvious threats today to the democratic system are coming from the left, not the right." 

The NY Times suddenly decides to do its job

NY Times: "Biden Loves to Tell Tall Tales. We Cut Them Down to Size. - By President Biden’s account, he was a fierce civil rights activist in his youth, had an uncle who fell prey to cannibals and used to drive an 18-wheeler."

The cynic in me suggests this is a way for the Times to get this out well before the election so they can claim they covered Biden's perpetual lies like an honest newspaper.

I was fooled. Not.

At this event dubbed "remarks to the press," Dementia Joe read directly off his laminated binder, barely looking up, then bid a hasty retreat.  It is so very rare when he has an unscripted event and when he does (like the CNN interview), it's a disaster. 

This is interesting

Wall Street Journal: "Wall Street Moves to Texas - Financial firms want competition for the NYSE and Nasdaq." - "New York politicians, watch out. A new stock exchange based in Texas could soon challenge Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange—and the Empire State’s status as America’s financial capital."

Population, business, and now finance seems to be gravitating towards the red states. 

We found the collusion in Washington

Victor Davis Hanson: "Dems, media fool no one: White House is knee-deep in Trump prosecutions."
