He’ll cochair a panel hearing on Wednesday. The highly routine moment will likely be met with outsized attention, given the Democrat’s path to the U.S. Senate — suffering a stroke, winning a politically coveted open seat, and then sharing his struggles with depression and seeking treatment at Walter

The reason he is returning now is they finally got the automatic drool drain line installed at his seat in the Senate. Also heard that the Senate Lunch Room is now serving Miracle Grow for plants to Fetterman, Feinstein, Schumer, and McConnell.

I saw him strolling along the back area of Walter Reed a few weeks ago. He looked like anyone else out for a morning stroll, This guy was living like a king in the VIP suite at WRMC, being waited on hand and foot and getting mental treatment that should have been going to our military personnel. It is not unreasonable to suspect that some service member might commit suicide because they were denied medical resources that Fetterman was taking.

Wasn’t there a thunderstorm in DC this weekend. I heard that the doctors/electricians got enough lightning power to spark Frankenfetterstein back to life. Or something close to it.

he won't be around for very long and he'll be back in rehab, the man has serious emotional issues that can only be treated and adjusted by lengthy, lengthy confronting of his inner issues someone should talk to him about his childhood and how to reconcile his present condition with the matters he faced as a child

John Cornyn, R-Texas, who sits on the committee, became the most recent Republican to voice his opposition to temporarily replacing Feinstein while she recovers at home from having shingles, signaling an uphill battle Senate Democrats face in securing a replacement.

President Biden offered a terse response to reporters who repeatedly asked him about his 2024 prospects, telling them prior to his departure from Ireland that he had "already made that calculus" on whether to seek re-election next year and that he would announce it "relatively soon." Biden's comments to the press came from Ireland West Airport Knock, just before he boarded Air Force One to head to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. "Do you know whether the last few days have changed your calculus on when you'll make an announcement on your plans for 2024," one reporter asked. "No, no, no, no.

President Joe Biden was moved to tears on Friday during his trip to Ireland after he learned a priest at a Catholic shrine he was visiting had performed the last rites for his son, who died in 2015. The chance meeting with Father Frank O'Grady surprised the president, who later said: "It was incredible to see him. It seemed like a sign," according to the Associated Press.

Joe Biden became president promising a 180-degree turn from Donald Trump. But the two men do have one big thing in common: similarly poor approval ratings heading into the start of their reelection bids. Biden has not yet officially announced he’s running again next year, though he has said he plans to. Polls show his approval rating is hovering in the low 40s, right around the mark where some of his predecessors who were denied second terms sat at this point of their presidencies. According to FiveThirtyEight, Biden’s average approval rating stands at 43 percent, about 9 points lower than

The Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously to amend the city's noise ordinance, which had prevented some morning and evening calls at certain times of the year because they occurred at times of the day when tighter noise restrictions are in place. "The Constitution doesn't sleep at night," said Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), after the vote. He said

The Democratic Party and President Joe Biden are wrecking the country. Their ongoing economic blunders, perverse cultural agenda, and corrupt foreign policy, if unchecked in the near future, will turn the United States into a dystopian nightmare comparable to Venezuela. This can be averted if former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis run together on the 2024 Republican presidential ballot. Neither can win in 2024 without the other, even if the Democratic alternative is an unpopular incumbent whose running mate is a running joke.

In simpler times, if you bought something, you paid for it. Rich or poor, tall or short, black or white, female or male, wise or foolish, everyone paid the same amount for a product.
