WATCH: Biden Has Trouble Immediately Upon Landing in Italy

How long are they going to let this go on? And how can someone that far gone deal effectively with world leaders? 

Pete Buttigieg Throws Shade at Martha-Ann Alito's Words, Fails to Check Spouse Chasten's Psychobabble

Buttigieg must have attended the same word salad training course that VP Kamala Harris did because his comments to the CNN anchor were a tossed mess that had little to do with Mrs. Alito's comments and everything to do with pushing the agenda that Justice Alito is dangerous and the Supreme Court must be reined in.

Ron DeSantis Emasculates Snotty Reporter Over 'Gender-Affirming Care' for Children

Do not ever give up the premise because the moment you do, the argument is over.


Today on Capitol Hill...

Thursday marks another busy day on the hill, even if some of the lawmakers are tired and/or a bit sore following the 31-11 GOP rout of the Dems in Wednesday evening's congressional baseball game.

White House What's Up

President Joe Biden (and a whole gaggle of family members, who surely are paying their own way with their lucrative gigs as...Biden Family members) are in Italy for the G7. Word has it he's already tearing it up over there.

Full Court Press...

Well, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is still on trial in the Southern District of New York for corruption, bribery, etc. Per the latest reports, the prosecution is still presenting its case. 

Thursday in June means: SCOTUS cases! That's right — today is another decision hand-down day, and as there are 32 decisions left and we're into mid-June, expect some of the big ones to start landing. We will, of course, keep you posted. 


I haven't watched a lot of baseball this season. Maybe it's because my beloved Cardinals have been mediocre at best. Maybe it's because I've been more focused on all the tornadic weather we've seen this spring. Either way, I did actually watch most of Wednesday night's congressional baseball game — and found myself enjoying it. It's nice to see Congress critters stepping outside their normal roles and, well, actually playing. We could all maybe stand to do that a little more. 


I'm not sure I've ever seen such determination. How soon can she run for president?
