A tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing......William Shakespeare

As gas prices hit another record high and parents struggle to find baby formula, Joe Biden made it clear that it's not his fault. No, it's the fault of the people his handlers hate. Now it's an "Ultra Maga agenda!" Where did Joe the demented get that phrase? It was created by a focus group hired by progressives. Where is this agenda? Evidently Rick Scott put forward an idea of raising taxes. It had little support from Republicans, thus it died as a footnote, but Biden's handlers are willing to use anything to gaslight the American people.
"Senator Rick Scott of Wisconsin, a member of the Senate Republican leadership laid it all out. The ultra MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families, lower the income of American workers. I never expected the ultra MAGA Republicans who seem to control the Republican Party now to have been able to control the Republican Party."
First of all Joe, Rick Scott is not of Wisconsin. He is currently a US Senator from the state of Florida and he was formerly the Governor of Florida. As for what Joe is calling a tax policy is the principle that Scott proposed: Scott says of his 11-point plan: “All Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount. Currently over half of Americans pay no income tax.” Finally, stupid ass Joe, the 11-point plan has little support from Republicans, it is hardly an agenda. Evidently, all Joe's handlers can come up with is to pretend that the election isn’t a referendum on Biden’s job performance but a choice between Biden and Donald Trump.
Breaking the law:
"Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday condemned protestors who gathered outside Supreme Court justices’ homes to protest a leaked draft opinion regarding the potential overturning of the Roe v. Wade decision.
“We’ve seen angry crowds assemble at judges’ private family homes. Activists published a map of their addresses. Law enforcement has had to install a security fence around the Supreme Court itself,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.
“Trying to scare federal judges into ruling a certain way is far outside the bounds of First Amendment speech or protest. It is an attempt to replace the rule of law with the rule of mobs,” he added.
McConnell also cited a federal law that forbids “pickets and parades” with the goal of influencing judges. He said the law could make the protestors’ actions illegal."
Biden's leftist DOJ has done nothing to enforce the law.
Garland and FBI targeted parents:
"Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson say they have evidence that the FBI targeted parents who protested schools' COVID policies despite assurances from Attorney General Merrick Garland that it never happened.
In a letter addressed to the Justice Department , Jordan and Johnson said they have evidence that the FBI labeled dozens of investigations into parents with a threat tag created by the bureau’s Counterterrorism Division to assess and track investigations related to school boards. The evidence comes from "brave whistleblowers" within the Department of Justice, they say in the letter addressed to Attorney General Garland."
Takeover bid on hold:
"Elon Musk said he's putting his $44 billion takeover of Twitter "temporarily on hold," saying that he wants more details about how many of the social platform's accounts are fake or spam.
The shock announcement sent the company's shares tumbling as investors questioned whether Musk might back out altogether."
Queen of Perks: "Pelosi ramps up benefits like Peloton gym memberships, liquor store for House lawmakers while Americans scramble for baby formula."
What have we learned?
Much of what we learned, we already knew. Biden continues to gaslight as the nation suffers. The stock market is in decline and that will effect 401K's. Many experts say the country is headed for a recession. The AG is defying the law. The mob is on the move against the Supreme Court. Thus far, Chief Justice Roberts has not requested help from the FBI, which has the expertise in computer and forensic investigations, to find the leaker.
Here we learned that after 5 years of smearing no less than half the country, we are now going to crack down on inflammatory comments.
Cartoon of the week:
During a panel discussion about the abortion debate, Maher called out outgoing White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for being "down with this" when she told reporters at a briefing last week "I don't have an official U.S. Government position on where people protest."
"But we do!" Maher reacted on Friday. "It's wrong! It's intimidation! It's against the law!"
