Biden has been facing protests in the form of “uncommitted” votes in the primary election.

If we look at the percentages, they have not cost Biden the nomination, obviously, but several states in the 2020 election would have been flipped with these numbers.

When you consider that Joe Biden is polling much worse now than he was during the 2020 cycle, this has to be a concern for Democrats.

On Biden’s response to Israel, Psaki, who now works for MSNBC, stated, “Clearly the strategy that the United States is implementing at this point is not working to change the behavior of Prime Minister Netanyahu, it is not working to end the war.

“So obviously, something has to change.”

Netanyahu has been adamant that he will not have another cease-fire until Hamas agrees to free all hostages.

He has also stated that the war will not be over until he has completely destroyed Hamas.

The problem for Israel, however, is that Netanyahu needs all the aid that the United States provides. He can posture now, but if Biden threatens to pull military aid, Netanyahu’s hand could be forced.

It's time once again for the debut of a new Star Wars series on Disney+, which means it's also time for Star Wars fans to be horrified and despondent over what Disney has done to their beloved space opera franchise. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your own point of view), Disney has a lot more Star Wars in the hopper.

The Babylon Bee has obtained the following list of new Star Wars characters coming soon to Disney+:

A friend of the great Mark Levin has suggested that Republican states should sue the state of New York in the Supreme Court over the outrageous prosecution of former President Trump in an election year.

In effect, this would create an appropriate avenue for the Supreme Court to take action to undo the corrupt prosecution of Trump, not based on the merits of the case or lack thereof, but because of the intent of the prosecution to harm Trump’s chances of winning the election, especially in the all important swing states.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s successful push to hike the minimum wage for many of the state’s fast food workers is having a devastating impact on businesses, who have been forced to cut labor costs to survive, critics say. 

Prices at major brands like Chipotle, McDonald’s and other fast food giants have increased in a move to keep up with the $20 per hour workers have been paid since the new wage went into effect on April 1. The rule impacts restaurants that have at least 60 locations nationwide, except those that make and sell their own bread.

The California Business and Industrial Alliance (CABIA) said nearly 10,000 jobs have been cut across fast food restaurants since Newsom signed California Assembly Bill 1287 into law last year.

The UN Palestinian refugee agency's chief has said that Israel bombed one of its schools in Gaza "without prior warning" to thousands of displaced sheltering there.

"Another UNRWA school turned shelter attacked," said Philippe Lazzarini, the Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

"Attacking, targeting or using UN buildings for military purposes are a blatant disregard of International Humanitarian law," he wrote on social media platform X on Thursday.

During Wednesday night’s sitdown with Donald Trump, Fox News host Sean Hannity asked the former President about reports that he’d seek retribution against Democrats if elected.

“Number one, they’re wrong,” Trump replied. “It has to stop, because otherwise, we’re not going to have a country. Look, when this election is over, based on what they’ve done, I would have every right to go after them, and it’s easy, because it’s Joe Biden and you see all the criminality, all of the money that’s going into the family and him, all of this money from China, from Russia, from Ukraine.”

“What they’re doing to me, if it’s going to continue, we’re really not going to have much of a country left. It’s really, it is weaponization. You call it lawfare, you call it — some people call it just warfare — but it is weaponization of the election,” the 2024 GOP frontrunner added.

“And we’re talking about, I think, the most important election in the history of our country. This will go down, I believe, as the most important election in the history of our country. We can’t have this stuff go on.”

President Joe Biden is reportedly struggling to function during closed-door meetings with U.S. officials and lawmakers to the point where at times people have wondered if he was awake.

The Wall Street Journal interviewed dozens of people — Republicans and Democrats, including those inside the White House — for its report and found that many had serious concerns about Biden’s mental fitness for the job. Their concerns match concerns that the overwhelming majority of voters have heading into the upcoming election following years of Biden making serious mental errors, from not remembering when he was in office to claiming that he had recently met with people who had been dead for decades.

The report comes after Special Counsel Robert Hur decided earlier that he could not bring criminal charges against Biden for his mishandling of classified material in part because prosecutors did not believe that he would be viewed as fit to stand trial.

Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr said this week that he believes the conviction in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s criminal case against former President Donald Trump is likely to be “overturned” because there was “no crime” committed.

“I said from the very start that this was an abomination,” Barr said during an interview. “And I actually was surprised that they went ahead with the case because there really was nothing there. There was no crime there and they never were able to really articulate it until after the defense rested its case. So I thought the whole thing was a travesty. I wasn’t surprised by the verdict because the way the case was conducted, there was never really any discipline on trying to make the prosecutor establish what the elements of the crime were and what evidence he had to do it. It was just assumed from the beginning that there was some kind of Federal Election Campaign violation, which there wasn’t.”

Barr warned that the case was damaging to political discourse in the U.S. and to the general health of the country.

The former White House physician for Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump says that a new report this week about how President Joe Biden is struggling to function behind closed doors represents a serious threat to the U.S.

The remarks from Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) come after The Wall Street Journal reported that Biden has struggled so greatly at times that officials in private meetings with him have wondered if he is even awake.

The report said that Biden did not know details about his own policies or the fact that the policies had been implemented in addition to forgetting negotiations that had already been solidified and making bizarre remarks to lawmakers.

“The article’s just documenting what I’ve been saying all along: he’s not fit to be the commander in chief,” Jackson said. “He’s got significant issues, he shouldn’t have the job. You know, it’s a national security issue for us.”

Many Democrats were probably expecting Trump’s chances to tank after the New York guilty verdict.

Many believed the criminal trial (along with the other trials against Trump) was meant to hurt Trump’s 2024 campaign. Instead, it seems that the plan backfired.

Trump’s campaign raised a reported $200 million after the guilty verdict. It appears people who previously didn’t support Trump are now jumping on his bandwagon.

A new post-conviction poll is coming out. It reveals how independent voters view the former president. And, in the aftermath of the New York conviction, it seems voters are starting to clarify their stances on Trump and Biden. Democrats are not going to like this.

From The Post Millennial:
Donald Trump is leading incumbent President Joe Biden among independent voters in a new poll released after his guilty verdict on Thursday…

Among independent voters, Trump leads Biden with 38 to 26 going into June. The national poll was conducted between May 29 and 31 of 1,675 registered voters with a margin of error of 2.5 percent, and the verdict, issued on May 30, did not seem to weaken his support…

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine there has been an increased tempo of attempts to rewrite the history of World War Two by Western media and politicians.

At an event to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz this year, the President of the EU Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen, never even mentioned that it was the Red Army which liberated the death camp.

Meanwhile, President Biden during a recent speech at Arlington Military Cemetery said that the US Army had “liberated the continent’’ from fascism and did not mention the role of the Red Army in the victory over Nazi Germany.

“Covid Jabs May be to Blame for Increase in Excess Deaths”

If this report by The Telegraph had been published in early 2021, several million lives would have been saved.

But in 2021, censorship was imposed. Honest journalism was silenced. The media was supportive of the fear campaign.

The Telegraph report by Science Editor Sara Knapton, 5 June 2024 pertains to:

Researchers from The Netherlands analysed data from 47 Western countries and discovered there had been more than three million excess deaths since 2020, with the trend continuing despite the rollout of vaccines and containment measures.

Just months after Republicans expressed concern over Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs' apparent willingness to "circumvent the laws of this state, the Democratic governor realized their fears, violating the law and unilaterally appointing 13 of her henchmen to lead state agencies.

A judge said as much in his Wednesday ruling, indicating that when Hobbs failed to legally get her way, she elected instead to run roughshod over Arizona law.

Frustrated by checks and balances

By law, the governor's Cabinet nominees can only be appointed with the consent of the Republican-controlled Arizona Senate.

The Senate's Committee on Director Nominations, led by state Sen. Jake Hoffman (R) and established last year to "evaluate executive nominations," grilled 11 of Hobbs' 22 nominees, approved seven, and rejected a handful, including pandemic shutdown champion Theresa Cullen.

Hoffman indicated in February 2023, "Now, make no mistake, this is a check on executive authority, but that is exactly what the legislature is supposed to do," reported the Arizona Mirror.

“Conscience doth make cowards of us all.” Those words from Hamlet captured the moral dilemma for many of us as we face the costs of conscience.

For each of us, there often comes a moment when our principles are put to an undeniable and unavoidable test. It may be as simple as cheating on a test, shoplifting a product, or admitting to a wrong. It is natural to want to avoid such moments, particularly when we cannot even admit to ourselves that we may not be the person we have long claimed.

For Attorney General Merrick Garland, that moment of truth has finally arrived. Garland has long maintained that he is an apolitical attorney general who does not even consider the political consequences of his actions. Over the last three years, some of us have questioned that commitment in a series of actions or, more importantly, non-actions. Yet, Garland has always been able to evade responsibility by shifting decision-making to others or claiming a lack of knowledge.

Donald Trump's lawyer Alina Habba took a victory lap after a Georgia appeals court halted DA Fani Willis' election interference case against the former president.

"She's fallen on her fanny since the very beginning," Habba told Newsmax's Carl Higbie. "This has completely been a disaster. It was a fake case to start with, her arrogance, her demeanor has been incredibly telling."

The United States is preparing to announce a new $225 million weapons package for Ukraine this week, coming two weeks after the last package, which was at $275 million and featured badly needed artillery rounds. And a few weeks prior to that, in early May, the US administration rolled out with $400 million in defense aid —  thus it appears the White House is planning to apportion new packages about every two or three weeks, drawing from Biden's $60 billion in recently approved total funding for Ukraine.

Currently, Ukrainian soldiers are resorting to literally trying to find leftover, unexploded artillery shells scattered in the ground at prior battle sites. The Wall Street Journal recently underscored this severe lack of ammo along Ukraine's front lines in writing that "Kyiv’s ammunition shortage is so acute that a soldier who hunts for Russian shells—and makes his own bombs—has become an important supplier for some units." 

The dangerous trend can be summarized as follows: the more desperation there is on the ground as Ukraine loses more and more ground along frontline positions, the greater the bellicose posturing on the part of NATO and the West. Western publications are even openly airing contingency plans for US troop movements in Europe in a WW3 scenario involving war with Russia in the heart of Europe. As another alarming and somewhat absurd example of this trend, look what European Commission chief is positively boasting about...
