1) George Soros has blood on his hands. Robby Starbuck writes:
The crime wave sweeping across the country is the direct result of a years-long campaign by George Soros to bankroll the election of far-left district attorneys committed to undermining law and order.
Over the past six years or so, Soros has poured tens of millions of dollars into the campaigns of DA candidates from coast to coast, achieving a remarkable degree of success by simply overwhelming all the other candidates. Whereas normal DA candidates typically run on five-figure budgets, Soros-backed DA candidates routinely enjoy seven-figure war chests.
2) The real truth about Kamala and Pete? They hate each other. Kyle Smith writes:
Did you see that hug between Wonder Boy President in Waiting Pete Buttigieg and Back Off Little Man I’m Boss Lady of This House Kamala Harris? I’ve seen leprous porcupines get closer together for a hug. Harris and Buttigieg could have danced like that at a Catholic high school in 1957 and the chaperone would have said, “I’ll allow it. If anything, there’s room for two Holy Spirits in between.”
H and B managed to hug while looking like they wished they were in two different time zones, just as their political fortunes are going in completely different directions: Buttigieg is maybe even a little ahead of schedule in the ruthless mega-map to the presidency he probably devised when he was drinking chocolate milk in kindergarten eight or nine years ago, while Harris is looking like the first sitting vice president who will ever cackle her way to political oblivion.
What was the purpose of this little awkward-as-small-town-community-theater scene? Well, Madame Vice and the Transportation Kid were out to display to the public the fact that they totally aren’t fighting even though every other day a leak appears in the Swamptown Gazette about how Democrats are scrambling to offload her somewhere before she becomes their next presidential nominee. Don’t be surprised if she is sent on an urgent diplomatic fact-finding mission to, say, Jupiter.
3) The Supreme Court is ending Roe v. Wade. Hugo Gourdon writes:
Oral arguments on Wednesday did nothing to change my expectation that the Supreme Court will soon overturn Roe v. Wade and end a half-century of pretense that there is a constitutional right to abortion.
Perhaps it will squeak through only 5-4 with Chief Justice John Roberts leaning on stare decisis, but my guess is he’ll join a 6-3 majority upholding the Mississippi law at issue. This would fit his argument in Citizens United that respect for precedent cannot excuse perpetuating a constitutional abomination.
When the court hands down its decision, presumably as its last word before summer recess, the Left will explode in fury. The usual suspects will denounce the five or six justices who end Roe as lackeys of former President Donald Trump and “far right” ideologues” — probably as “white supremacists,” too, since that’s in fashion and protesters on Wednesday equated pro-life views with racism.
