Note 20: Alrighty, SPs, to the news! For the first time in a long time, we’ve got some momentum. If it feels weird, we get that. After all, we’re Democrats. But let’s use it to keep kicking ass and win some elections this November. Love y’all!
Not the best timing
While we were writing today, Speaker Pelosi landed in Taiwan, becoming the first American leader to do so in 25 years. We think it’s very cool that the speaker is standing up for a free and independent people. We do wish it had happened on a day when we weren’t talking about how Biden took out a major fucking terrorist, but the speaker doesn’t ask us for scheduling advice. China has been full of threats over this visit, but as far as we’re concerned, they can fuck off.
Republicans are fighting the new Manchin-Schumer deal with everything they’ve got. The WSJ editorial board is already lying about it, McConnell is calling it a job-killer (Fun fact: During Mitch’s last full month as majority leader, the economy lost 140,000 jobs and the unemployment rate was a full three points higher than it is today). But a new report shows that the bill will put downward pressure on inflation. So why the fuck are these assholes voting to keep inflation high? Oh right. Because they’re assholes.
While Joe Biden was announcing that he took out a major terrorist, Trump was once again showing everyone that American elections are just a big joke to him. Yeah, orange assface put out an oh-so-clever statement yesterday endorsing “Eric” in the Missouri primary. Of course there are two irredeemable shit-eaters named Eric running for the Senate nomination. And of course because it’s a party of soulless idiots, both Erics said that Trump had endorsed them. Sigh. Even for that stupid motherfucker, this is pretty stupid.
Before he gave the order to kill Ayman al-Zawahiri,
President Joe Biden wanted to intimately understand where the al Qaeda leader was hiding.
The US drone strike that killed Zawahiri on his balcony in downtown Kabul
was the product of months of highly secret planning by Biden and a tight circle of his senior advisers. Among the preparations was a small-scale model of Zawahiri’s safe house, constructed by intelligence officials and placed inside the White House Situation Room for Biden to examine as he debated his options.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Monday his investigators found just one dead voter after thoroughly reviewing findings from a partisan review of the 2020 election that alleged 282 ballots were cast in the name of someone who had died.

So much of the media these days are pulling their punches and afraid to tell the truth because they don’t want to piss off their advertisers. Not us! Advertisers don’t want anything to do with us, and if they did, we would piss them off in like two seconds.
