President Joe Biden shared confidential information about the ongoing negotiations regarding Israeli hostages during his appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Myers. This disclosure compromised the bargaining positions of a crucial U.S. ally, while prematurely expressing optimism for a successful outcome, contrary to what all parties involved in the talks had stated.
While enjoying ice cream with Seth Myers, President Biden expressed his hope for a ceasefire to be achieved by the following Monday.

It’s trauma time in America.
There is a truism that those who have been in battle are the most silent about its realities. My own father and uncle served in combat zones in WW2 and I could never pry from them the war stories that I so wanted to hear. I served in small police agencies and have often heard how lucky I was not to be in LA or New York or some other big agencies.

My income tax is due in a few weeks!
I hate it.
I’m pretty good at math, but I no longer prepare my own taxes. The form alone scares me.
I feel I have to hire an accountant, because Congress, endlessly sucking up to various interest groups, keeps adding to a tax code. Now even accountants and tax nerds barely understand it.
I can get a deduction for feeding feral cats but not for having a watchdog.
I can deduct clarinet lessons if I get an orthodontist to say it’ll cure my overbite, but not piano lessons if a psychotherapist prescribes them for relaxation.
The French president did not rule out sending ground troops to Ukraine, an idea that has been overwhelmingly dismissed by other NATO allies. Just a couple days prior, Macron told farmers who are protesting in France to “calm down”, adding that their protests were “counterproductive”.

Social media alerts me to the fact that today would be Sir Roger Scruton’s 80th birthday. Sadly, Sir Roger passed away from cancer in 2020. I got to know Sir Roger fairly well in his last decade, and had several splendid intimate dinners with him and his lovely wife Sophie over very expensive bottles of fine Bordeaux (among his 50-plus superb books was, after all, I Drink, Therefore I Am—highly recommended), conversing and sometimes having extensive but very friendly arguments.

“All liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone.” -Revelation 21:8
Somehow or another, the American people have mistakenly made entertainers and professional athletes as people of importance so much so that they have put their idols, the players and teams, in the place of Christ (Exodus 20:13; Acts 4:12).
With all of the information coming out concerning the NFL and how it is rigged (scripted) from start to finish (Ephesians 4:14), one has to ask themselves why they are still watching it.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The hour of Thomas Eugene Creech’s death has been set, and it is rapidly approaching.
On Wednesday morning Idaho prison officials will ask the 73-year-old if he would like a mild sedative to help calm him before his execution at the Idaho Maximum Security Institution south of Boise. Then, at 10 a.m. local time, they will bring him into the execution chamber and strap him to a padded medical table.

As speculation over Donald Trump’s VP pick continues to build, it’s becoming clear who his supporters want to join him on the ticket in November.
A straw poll at last weekend’s CPAC retreat presented two clear winners: South Dakota governor Kristi Noem (R) and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.
Of course, Trump will ultimately make a decision based on his own judgment.
Top two VP candidates…
Both Noem and Ramaswamy gave speeches at CPAC, which functioned as an audition of sorts for those seeking Trump’s favor.
Other VP contenders include Senator V.D.
Donald Trump’s pick to replace Ronna McDaniel as Republican National Committee chair, Michael Whatley, made his candidacy official on Monday.
Whatley, who chairs the North Carolina GOP, sent a letter to the RNC’s 168 members laying out his priorities ahead of the presidential election in November.
“I have been truly honored to receive President Trump’s endorsement for this position and I hope to earn your vote as we undertake the crucial work of winning up and down the ballot in 2024,” he wrote.
A bombshell new report alleges that the Biden administration colluded with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in targeting former President Donald Trump.
That’s according to an article published by Breitbart on Monday, which cited multiple sources said to be familiar with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.
Deputy district attorney alleged to be a White House plant
They pointed to Deputy District Attorney Jeff DiSantis, who worked on Willis’s 2020 campaign and formerly served as executive director of Georgia’s Democratic Party.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Wednesday will hear a challenge to a Trump-era ban on bump stocks, a gun accessory used in a Las Vegas massacre that was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
A Texas gun shop owner argues the Trump administration didn’t follow federal law when it reversed course and banned bump stocks, which allow semi-automatic weapons to fire rapidly like machine guns.
The Biden administration is defending the ban, saying regulators were right to revise previous findings and ban bump stocks under laws against machine guns dating back decades.
After a lifetime of chasing power, Hillary Clinton is faced with the dreadful reality that it was all for nothing.
According to a Rasmussen survey, just 12 percent of Democrats want the political has-been to lead the party if President Biden is forced out before the 2024 presidential election.
The top choice was Michelle Obama, who has been the target of rampant 2024 speculation, with even notorious incompetent Kamala Harris coming out ahead of Clinton.
President Joe Biden went to New York City on Monday for an interview with NBC’s “Late Night” host Seth Myers and, while there, was besieged by a group of anti-Israel protesters, the Washington Examiner reported.
The protesters, who claimed to be Jewish New Yorkers opposed to Israel’s retaliatory actions against Hamas terrorists in Gaza, accused the president of supporting a “genocide” against Palestinian civilians and demanded an immediate ceasefire in the ongoing fighting.
Former President Donald Trump likely just STUNNED the judge on his defamation case with his latest move!
Recently, Judge Arthur Engoron found Trump GUILTY and ordered him to pay over $350 million dollars.
The baloney didn’t stop there.
Plus, the former president is no longer allowed to operate business in New York for the news three years.
Now, according to Reuters, Trump has fought back.
He has filed an appeal with an appellate court to attempt to overturn Engoron’s ruling.
The wrestling world mourns the loss of a true legend, Ole Anderson, who passed away this Monday at the age of 81, the New York Post reported.
Ole Anderson, a name synonymous with professional wrestling greatness and a pillar of the original Four Horsemen faction, has left an indelible mark on the sport with his passing.
Born Alan Rogowski, Ole Anderson became a household name in the wrestling world. His journey in professional wrestling was marked by his tenure as one of the most formidable heels in the sport, earning respect from fans and peers alike.
The White House has finally reacted to the alleged murder of a Georgia nursing student by an illegal immigrant with at least one prior arrest, which some Republicans are blaming on the Biden administration’s failures to secure the border.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hunter Biden is set to appear Wednesday on Capitol Hill for a closed-door deposition with lawmakers, a critical moment for Republicans as their impeachment inquiry into his father and their family’s business affairs teeters on the brink of collapse.
The deposition will mark a decisive point for the 14-month Republican investigation into the Biden family, which has centered on Hunter Biden and his overseas work for clients in Ukraine, China, Romania and other countries.
The Biden administration has initiated legal proceedings to impede the proposed merger of supermarket chains Kroger and Albertsons, asserting that the transaction would result in increased consumer food prices.
Monday, the Federal Trade Commission published a press release on its website announcing the lawsuit, according to a report by NBC News.
“The FTC charges that the proposed deal will eliminate fierce competition between Kroger and Albertsons, leading to higher prices for groceries and other essential household items for millions of Americans,” it said.
New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) is fortunate that courts don’t give penalties for gloating about a win.
On Sunday, James gleefully live-tweeted the fact that at the current 9% interest rate, former President Donald Trump’s $355 million fine will accrue more than $114,000 a day in interest charges until he pays it or it is overturned on appeal.
While the extension of the bloc’s 2022 emergency demand reduction was framed as a success, the impact has been severe
Europeans must maintain the reduced natural gas consumption levels imposed in the wake of sanctions targeting Russia’s energy sector, according to a draft proposal from the European Council published on Tuesday.
According to one report, those meeting in the Oval Office with the US president “ganged up” on the house speaker to allow more money for Ukraine, with Biden telling him that history would “judge him harshly” if he did not act on the issue. Meanwhile, Johnson said his first priority is securing the US-Mexico border.
Unless the people I’m talking to are lawyers or professional historians, I’ve discovered that mentioning the words “bill of attainder” receives, at best, blank looks and, at worst, an irritated request for more information, typically of the form “what the hell is that”? Even lawyers often get a distant look as they struggle to remember the details of a concept that dates back to the 14th century.
