'Joe must go': Media throwing Biden a 'retirement party'

I predicted that the media and the Democrat establishment would begin their whispering campaign against Joe Biden two years ago. Okay, I was jumped the gun. My guess is that the alternative, President Kamala Harris was worse, so they kept their kept their powder dry. 

But with Dem prospects in November looking very chilly, they are taking a peek at 2024. 

As I've stated numerous times--I have to repeat myself because some people, leftists that is, are slow learners--it's not that Biden is too old and feeble to run for reelection in '24. He was too old and feeble to run for president in 2020.

Now we know this story is as false as Joe's teeth: Gutfeld

Joe Biden lied. He knew about at least one of his sleazy son's influence-peddling deals in information discovered on the laptop that the mainstream media said was "Russian disinformation."

From Matt Rosenberg at Wirepoints: In a city this violent, Mayor Lightfoot’s outburst against Justice Thomas constitutes a grave dereliction of duty

There is so much wrong with Chicago. There is so much wrong with its mayor, Lori Lightfoot. Over at Wirepoints Matt Rosenberg adds more: In a city this violent, Mayor Lightfoot’s outburst against Justice Thomas constitutes a grave dereliction of duty.

Mark Dice: Senate candidate caught on tape discussing "unique" fundraising plan (to say the least)

Krystle Matthews is in a runoff election today to decide who will be the Democratic candidate to face US Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). Here she asks a prisoner to conspire with drug dealers to make straw campaign contributions to her campaign. 

"Where the f*ck is my Black people with money?” Matthews says on the call. "I don't care about no dope money. Give me that dope boy money. Sh*t where the f*cking dope? Where are the duffel-bag boys. Get you — find me someone from your family that don’t even know you donating to my campaign and put that sh*t under their names." 

Oh, Matthews calls herself a "n***er here. 

Straw campaign political contributions are illegal.

Somehow this news didn't make the cut with Brian Stelter's Reliable Sources newsletter.

UPDATE June 29: If Tim Scott can lock in a good rent for his apartment or his house in DC, he should do so now. Matthews won her primary

The Band & Ronnie Hawkins - Who Do You Love

Late last month the great Ronnie Hawkins died in Canada. An immense talent, but the Arkansan wasn't blessed with great career timing. Rockabilly was on the wane in the late 1950s when his career started, so he headed to Canada where it was still popular. His band, the Hawks, had Levon Holm as its drummer. 

Slowly, except for Helms, the members of the Hawks migrated back to the USA, replaced one by one by enormously talented Canadians. The newer Hawks, after breaking with Hawkins, became the Band, which arguably invented the Americana genre of music. 

Hawkins was a powerful singer and a great dancer--the Hawks were a great bar band and had Hawkins been at the peak of his career in the early 1980s--the music video era--his well-deserved superstardom would have been achieved. YouTube and TikTok would have been very kind to "the Hawk."

Ronnie was one of the few highlights in that 1980s big-budget movie bomb, Heaven's Gate.

But Hawkins great gift was eying talent. He also discovered Canadian rocker Pat Travers.

Here is Hawkins with the Band from The Last Waltz bellowing out "Who Do You Love."

Rest in peace.

How a Latina Republican's victory in Texas primary flipped the media narrative

Leftist Democrats and their media allies are scratching their heads over how an Hispanic Republican woman, Mayra Flores, who bragged in a television ad that her husband is a US Border Patrol officer, won a special House election in a district that is over 80 percent Hispanic. 

The leftist narrative is wrong.

After 90 years with HQ in Illinois, Caterpillar moving it to Texas

Caterpillar plant, Peoria Heights, in 2010

Last month Boeing announced that it's moving its headquarters to Virgina. Now Caterpillar, which has had its headquarters in Illinois since 1930, announced transferring its HQ to Texas.

ILL-inois just leaves a bad taste in many people's mouths. The Prairie State's reputation for rampant corruption and high taxes goes back decades, now Illinois is notorious for out-of-control crime and unsustainable public-pension worker debt--both at the state and local level.

One day we'll leave. Hopefully soon.

From the Peoria Journal-Star:

Caterpillar Inc. announced plans Tuesday to move its global headquarters from Deerfield, Ill., to the company's existing office in Irving, Texas.
"We believe it's in the best strategic interest of the company to make this move, which supports Caterpillar's strategy for profitable growth as we help our customers build a better, more sustainable world," said Caterpillar Chairman and CEO Jim Umpleby.
Caterpillar has had a presence in Texas since the 1960s, the company said in the news release. Illinois retains the largest concentration of Caterpillar employees anywhere in the world, with 12,000 in the Peoria region alone as of 2018.
But those central Illinois Cat jobs will slowly trickle down to Texas. I've seen this movie before. Texas has a business-friendly government, gasoline sells a buck less down there, and there is no state income tax.

Inflation at 41-year-high at 8.6 percent

Lake Bluff, IL on June 7
The morning after the two-hour hate last night about the January 6th Capitol riot, there is bad news for Americans--the inflation figures for May are out and not surprisingly, the numbers are terrible. 

Of course, the Democrats want to change the subject away from the wretched job they are doing. The Dems control Congress and the White House. A year ago, Joe Biden was calling inflation "transitory." Two nights ago, in a softball interview with Jimmy Kimmell, Biden bragged about the US economy. 

From Yahoo Finance

U.S. consumer prices accelerated in May to the highest since 1981, as Americans grapple with a surge in the cost of gas, food, and shelter, data showed Friday. 

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' May Consumer Price Index (CPI) showed a year-over-year increase of 8.6% last month, up from 8.3% in April. Economists were expecting an 8.3% increase in May, according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg. 

On a month-over-month basis, the broadest measure of inflation climbed 1.0%, compared to 0.3% in April. "Core" inflation, which strips out the more volatile costs of food and gas, rose 6% over the prior year in May, more than the 5.9% that was expected. 

The biggest contributors to the latest jump in inflation were shelter, gasoline, and food, according to the BLS. The energy index rose 3.9% month-on-month in May, with the gasoline index rising 4.1%. Compared to the prior year, energy prices in May were up 34.6%, the most since September 2005.

The recall of another radical DA, George Gascon in Los Angeles County, is still in the petition stage.

Time for a law school refresh? Lightfoot says of those charged with crimes "these people are guilty"

I imagine in the first semester of law school the subject of "innocent until proven guilty" comes up. Heck, when I served on a jury years ago it did. 

And while I firmly believe that Kim Soros-Smollett Foxx, the so-called prosecutor in Cook County whose formal title is Cook County state's attorney, is a menace to public safety and should resign, Chicago's failed mayor, Lori Lightfoot, went too far when she made some alarming comments.

"Given the exacting standards that the state's attorney has for charging a case, which is proof beyond a reasonable doubt - when those charges are brought, these people are guilty." She immediately clarified that statement a little, adding "and of course they're entitled to a presumption of innocence. Of course, they're entitled to their day in court. But residents in our community are also entitled to safety from dangerous people. So we need to keep pressing the criminal courts to lock up violent, dangerous people."

Foxx, among many things, has let too many accused violent criminals go free on no or low bail, or put them on electronic monitoring, which many then elude. Crime is skyrocketing in Chicago and the suburbs. But it might be you or me who is deemed "guilty" one day by an unbalanced public official like Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor and a graduate of the University of Chicago law school. Lightfoot is expected to announce her bid for a second term on Wednesday. 

Instead of upending the perception of guilt and innocence, Lightfoot should instead be demanding the resignation of Foxx.

Biden Treasury secretary admits she was wrong about inflation

Well, there is at least one person with at least some integrity within the Bided Administration. In an article from the Washington Post, Treasury secretary Janet Yellen admitted that she, and that means the White House, was wrong about inflation. 
Yellen acknowledged that the administration didn’t expect the last year to play out the way it has. "I think I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take," she told CNN on Tuesday. (A Treasury spokesperson said later Yellen was merely noting that "there have been shocks to the economy that have exacerbated inflationary pressures which couldn't have been foreseen 18 months ago, including Russia’s decision to invade Ukraine, multiple successive variants of COVID, and lockdowns in China.")
Oh, what you just read was an example of media bias. Sure, the Washington Compost reported Yellen's remark, but does so in the 14th paragraph. And look how the rag immediately jumps to protect the Democrat narrative. But all is not well. Any person who isn't an apologist for the Dems knows it.
