Former New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that he is running for Congress in the upcoming midterm elections in November, in New York’s tenth congressional district. De Blasio make the announcement during an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday. It comes merely 48 hours after de Blasio announced via Twitter that he was forming an exploratory committee to raise money for a potential bid. The committee was legally turned into a formal campaign on Friday. In announcing his candidacy, de Blasio told host Joe Scarborough that “people are hurting, they need help, they need help fast,” and that “they need leaders that can actually get them help now.”

THE most destructive, harmful person ever elected to mayor of NYC, and now he wants to have more power. Dangerous, harmful person. And yet, the Dems voted for him twice. Apparently they LIKE a collapsing city.

Three U.S. Air Force Academy cadets whose refusal to get COVID-19 vaccines threatened their May 25 graduation — along with the risk of a repayment demand for six-figure tuition costs — will be awarded their degrees, officials said Saturday. Following a “standard review” of graduation requirements for this year’s senior class, the Academy’s board recommended awarding Bachelor of Science degrees “for the three cadets refusing the COVID-19 vaccine,” a news release from the Colorado Springs, Colorado, school said in a statement. However, the Academy stated, “they will not be commissioned into the United States Air Force as long as they remain unvaccinated,”

When Elon Musk announced that he would be voting Republican in the future, he said he knew that the Democrats would be coming for him now. Then the next day, Business Insider dredged up an old sexual harassment allegation that had been resolved against him, not even citing the ‘accuser’ but rather the declaration of a friend of hers. Musk responded immediately that it wasn’t true, challenged the accuser to describe a part of his anatomy not known to the public and even joked that he had the perfect name for the ‘scandal’ —- Elongate.

“Everything I don’t like is a threat to democracy” has become the new slogan of the Democrat Party, and it was put on display again this week after the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals slapped down Joe Biden’s SEC. In a ruling that restored constitutional protections and left Democrats screaming bloody murder, the court found that the SEC does not have the power to internally decide to seize assets from those they feel have committed a crime. Some might be asking how the SEC ever gained such power in the first place, where an internal, administrative judge can unilaterally steal people’s property. After all, doesn’t the Seventh Amendment

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of the Archdiocese of San Francisco has taken the extreme step of publishing a letter informing Rep. Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House of Representatives and third in the line of succession for the presidency, that she must recant her public support for abortion and confess her sins before she will be allowed to partake of the Eucharist. It’s the most drastic action yet taken by a leader of the Catholic Church against a high-ranking pro-abortion politician. The Bishop of the Springfield, IL diocese gave the same punishment to state politicians; House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton were also banned from receiving communion.

Follow-up question: Is there actually a “new” monkeypox at all or is this the same virus African doctors have been managing for years, suddenly spreading in Europe for reasons that remain unclear? Either way, the trends aren’t great.Today’s global cases are double the number recorded on Wednesday. Cases have also doubled in the UK. The virus has been found on at least four continents in the past month, suggesting that something has changed about it qualitatively. But if it has, it’s curious that Africa isn’t seeing an unusually large outbreak this year.

President Joe Biden recently signed a law mandating (persondating?) that all new vehicles sold after 2026 must be equipped with electronic “kill switches.” These switches could conceivably be used by government officials—or hackers—to seize control of one’s car without permission or oversight. Oddly enough, the law was essentially hidden inside of the administration’s LGBTQ-friendly $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill that was passed late last year. The “kill switch law” would potentially allow law enforcement to shut one’s car off remotely, and also to track the car’s metrics

Dark on TV. Trailing badly in polls. Written off by Republican political insiders nationally and in Georgia. Former Sen. David Perdue’s once-spirited primary challenge to Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp appears to be sputtering in the homestretch ahead of Tuesday’s vote. Even the man who recruited Perdue to run against Kemp — former President Donald Trump — seems to have given his campaign up for dead, said three Republicans who have spoken to Trump. They say Trump has groused about what he believes is a lackluster campaign effort from Perdue. Trump isn’t planning to make any more personal appearances

Is this an admission that Karine Jean-Pierre has not exactly risen to her new position as White House press secretary? Yes, if you ask me. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby is a consummate professional, regardless of your political party of choice. The fact that he is being moved into the White House now that Jen Psaki (Psaki bombs) is gone is pretty much an admission that the wrong choice was made for her replacement. Kirby’s current official title is Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs. He’s clearly comfortable working in Democrat administrations and on lefty cable news networks, as he did at CNN from 2017 to 2021

Hillary Clinton approved an effort to leak allegations that Donald Trump was colluding with Russia via Alfa Bank, according to her 2016 presidential campaign manager, Robby Mook, who testified Friday in federal court in Washington, DC. The Alfa Bank allegations were later disproven, as was the broader “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory that they supported. (snip) As the New York Post notes, Mook also discussed the Alfa Bank allegations with Clinton aide Jake Sullivan. Sullivan played a key role in misleading reporters and Congress about “Russia collusion,” telling the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had colluded with Russia. Sullivan now has Flynn’s former position.

The Biden administration privately acknowledged late last month that a mathematical error is delaying the federal government’s offshore oil and gas program. In an April 29 letter to industry leaders obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that a subagency “discovered a miscalculation” that has caused a massive backlog in permitting. Richard Spinrad acknowledged in his letter that the National Marine Fisheries Service—the subagency tasked with analyzing the impact of offshore drilling projects on wildlife—has used faulty computer modeling on such impacts. As a result, Spinrad wrote, the subagency overestimated wildlife effects, delaying permitting on existing leases.
