“As interest costs go up in the United States, you get in this vicious circle, where higher interest rates cause higher funding costs, cause higher debt issuance, which cause further bond liquidation, which cause higher rates, which puts us in an untenable fiscal position.” -- Paul Tudor Jones, October 10, 2023

Biden literally looked us in the face and told us inflation was 9% when he took office. Newsflash: it was 1.4%

Israel and Hezbollah carried out tit-for-tat airstrikes throughout Wednesday. Scores of Hezbollah missiles were fired at northern Israel and a drone strike against a military site near Golani Junction hit some 21 miles from the border.

Israeli military reported damage but no injuries from the explosives-laden drone, but more noteworthy is the fact this is the deepest strike into Israeli territory since the current war began in October.

Most Hezbollah strikes against Israel have been to within 9.3 miles of the border. Showing a capacity to strike this much deeper into Israel means many sites, previously thought relatively safe, are within range of attack.

Israel responded to the drone strike with several strikes into northeastern Lebanon, hitting the towns of Nabi Chit and Brital in the Bekaa Valley. This too was a very deep strike, some 51 miles from the border itself.

Israel commonly attacks targets in and around the city of Baalbek in the northeast. The area, not far from the Syria-Lebanon border, is seen as having an active Hezbollah presence with an eye toward smuggling arms into the country.

CNN data analyst Harry Enten threw a snide remark at President Joe Biden this week after he rejected polls that show former President Donald Trump leading him in polls in several battleground states.

During an interview last week, Biden had told CNN host Erin Burnett, “The polling data has been wrong all along. You guys do a poll at CNN. How many folks you have to call to get one response?”

In response to Biden’s remarks during a conversation with Enten, Burnett said, “He doesn’t like the polls. Is he right or is it wishful thinking?”

Enten then said, “He loved the polls four years ago when they showed him ahead. These are the same polls now.”

Despite the subtle mockery of Biden, Enten noted that polls can see a drastic change before the November election.

Ukraine’s generals warned they have run out of reserves to halt Russia’s shock assault on Kharkiv. It comes as Vladimir Putin masses more than half a million troops on the frontline in a bid to overpower Ukraine’s forces.

Ukraine’s military has admitted it is struggling to contain the advance in the northeast of the country.

General Kyrylo Budanov, boss of Kyiv’s military intelligence, said: “I’ve used everything we have.

“Unfortunately, we don’t have anyone else in the reserves.”

Putin’s troops have seized miles of ground in their fastest advances in months.

Newly-uncovered information reveals that the rate of illegal aliens who evaded capture by the Border Patrol has spiked under Joe Biden compared to the rates under his predecessors.

According to Fox News, the Border Patrol data revealed via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request back in October shows that there were over 1.4 million “gotaways” between Fiscal Year 2010 and Fiscal Year 2020, with the lowest being 86,226 in 2011 and the highest being 171,663 in 2013.

There were 136,808 gotaways in Fiscal Year 2020, the final year of President Donald Trump’s first term. The number then skyrocketed in Fiscal Year 2021 to 387,398, before rising even higher to 606,131 in 2022 and 670,674 in 2023. Thus, there was a total of approximately 1.6 million gotaways between Fiscal Years 2021 and 2023 alone, higher than the number over the course of the entire previous decade.

Sources within Customs and Border Protection (CBP) say that there have already been at least 175,000 gotaways in Fiscal Year 2024.

“That number is a large number, but what’s keeping me up at night is the 140,000 known gotaways,” said Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens back in March.

Joe Biden couldn’t survive a 2024 presidential election campaign battle without special treatment. The media has babied him during his entire term in office, never hitting him with hard questions about all his failures.

That trend will continue as the election heats up for the summer. Biden and former President Donald Trump are set for their first debate on June 27 and another on September 10. And the debates are heavily weighted in Biden’s favor before they ever start.

Biden recently released a video that said “make my day” in response to Trump’s challenge to debate him anytime, anywhere. Biden’s handlers and the media did make his day by demanding special treatment that hobbles Trump’s ability to rip apart the feeble incumbent.

From Fox News:
Here are each of the restrictions the Biden campaign is demanding:

No audience. The new debates between Trump and Biden must take place in a television studio with just the candidates and the moderator present.

No RFK Jr. or any other third-party candidate. “The debates should be one-on-one, allowing voters to compare the only two candidates with any statistical chance of prevailing in the Electoral College — and not squandering debate time on candidates with no prospect of becoming President,” Biden’s team wrote.

Limited news outlets. This rule set limits the networks that can host a debate to CNN, ABC, CBS or Telemundo.

Candidate microphones must mute after time expires. “A candidate’s microphone should only be active when it is his turn to speak, to promote adherence to the rules and orderly proceedings,” Biden’s campaign wrote.

Biden’s handlers must have thought Trump wouldn’t agree to debate under these insane restrictions. Much to their dismay, Trump accepted with CNN set to host the first debate.

Trump made it clear that he will take on the old man in the White House and deliver what his supporters want from him.

The man with the slickest hair in politics just can’t get enough… bad news. Gavin Newsom, the tyrannical governor of California, was hit with more negative details about how his failed policies have harmed The Golden State.

When this character took office, every leftist hailed him as the golden boy and possibly the future president of the United States. But after years of missteps and policies that sent the state further into financial turmoil, Newsom lost his swagger and appeal.

What he has found is a new title as a failure who has sent California spiraling into the proverbial financial toilet. Newsom now leads a state that is falling deeper into a financial deficit.

From Fox News:
Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing criticism from his Republican colleagues after he announced the budget deficit is actually $7 billion worse than his initial projections, bringing the total shortfall to nearly $74 billion.

“The Legislative Analysts Office (LAO) had an estimate that is significantly higher,” Republican vice chair of the state budget committee Roger Niello told Fox News Digital in an interview. “The ledge analyst is impartial, and has a long history of being relatively accurate on things like this and prudent, and why the governor continues to insist on using a significantly smaller deficit and even saying that he thinks the LAO is wrong is just puzzling to me.”
