Note 19: Alright, Sexy Patriots! Let’s do some news! We hope this hump day finds y’all having a humping good week. Or at least a normal good week. Love y’all!
So the new CPI report shows inflation at a new 40-year high, and that ain’t good. Like at all. The good news is that it’s largely based on energy prices, and this report doesn’t factor in that gas prices have dropped for like 26 days in a row.

Yesterday was another mind-blowing hearing day as we went deep inside the White House meeting where the shithouse rats were all screaming and cussing at each other and Mike Flynn, Sidney Powell and the Overstock guy who had an affair with a Russian spy were all calling for seizing voting machines.

While we were all asleep, President Biden flew to Israel. He is trumpeting Trump’s achievements in the region and just told Netanyahu that he loves him. We wish we were making up both of those things, but we’re not so just ugh. And it ain’t like it gets better when he meets with MBS and the Saudi family. Honestly, we don’t have anything good to say about any of this, but we figured you should know where the president was today. More: CNN
