    The second week in May has been dominated by inflation, the economy and a baby formula shortage which the Biden administration is struggling to respond to. No wonder Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) says President Joe Biden is a "disaster". Here are the quotes of the week. "I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea."— Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors admits that she had two parties at the $6 million California mansion the organization bought. “Twitter obv has a strong left wing bias.”— Elon Musk slams Twitter for allowing certain posts while choosing to censor others. “I believe that eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades.”— Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says banning abortion would hurt the economy. The remark was criticized as “callous” and “harsh” by Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). "You're justifiably right: We control all three branches of the government. Well, we don't really. We have a 50-50 Senate. You need 60...
    Senator Lindsey Graham has said he was wrong to describe Joe Biden as 'the best person' to lead the country after the January 6 insurrection. Graham was recorded speaking to New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin on the day of the riot itself. Martin has written a new book with colleague Alexander Burns titled This Shall Not Pass. 'We'll actually come out of this thing stronger,' Graham tells Martin. 'Moments like this reset. It'll take a while. People will calm down. People will [say] 'I don't want to be associated with that.' This is a group within a group. What this does, it'll be a rallying effect for a while, where the country says, 'We're better than this.'' When Martin asks if Biden will help bring the country together after the insurrection, Graham replies: 'Totally'. He'll add: 'He'll be maybe the best person to have, right? 'I mean, how mad can you get at Joe Biden?' On Thursday, Fox News anchor Jesse Watters asked the South Carolina senator whether he stood by his 2021 comments. Lindsey Graham appeared on Jesse...
    PIERS Morgan slammed "divisive" Joe Biden, stating the president can "barely keep his own eyes open" as the US gets "poorer, sicker and less safe."

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — St. Joseph’s Medical Center and Howard County General are now on the growing list of Maryland hospitals switching over to crisis standards of care. The state is now reporting a record-shattering 3,057 COVID-19 hospitalizations. READ MORE: Tell Us What You Want To Know About COVID-19“It is a big deal,” Maryland Hospital Association President and CEO Bob Atlas said. “There is no sugarcoating it at this point.” Rising hospitalizations over the last two weeks have caused several Maryland hospitals to declare disasters and switch over to crisis standards of care, including the University of Maryland St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Towson. “I’ve been here for almost 33 years and we’ve never had to move into crisis standards of care,” St. Joseph’s Medical Center Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs  Dr. Gail Cunningham said Dr. Cunningham said they are trying to maximize bed space for COVID-19 patients. She said workers have been caring for more patients than usual and that workers from other departments are being called in to assist. Plus, the hospital is rescheduling...
    Donald Trump lashed out at Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell yet again on Sunday morning, lambasting his establishment Republican rival as a 'disaster' over his support for Joe Biden's $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. Speaking to Fox News, the ex-president urged GOP voters to elect 'tougher people' rather than 'Mitch McConnell-type guys' as the 2022 midterm elections draw near. 'Mitch McConnell allowed this to happen - the unfrastructure bill, I call it unfrastructure not infrastructure, it's only 9 percent infrastructure,' Trump told host Maria Bartiromo. 'There was no way that that should've been passed.' He criticized McConnell for not leveraging the US debt limit to kill Biden's bipartisan bill. 'He could have used that to win everything and he chose not to,' Trump said. With 11 months until the 2022 elections, the ex-president has already endorsed dozens of candidates - some even as primary challengers to incumbent Republicans.  'We have candidates who are not strong, they are RINOs, they're not strong, they're Mitch McConnell-type guys and he's a disaster,' Trump said. 'We need tougher people, we need people that are going...
    This Saturday is the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the darkest days in American history. To mark the occasion, President Biden will travel to Ground Zero in New York where the Twin Towers were destroyed, to Virginia where a plane was flown into the Pentagon, and to a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania where Flight United 93 also crashed after an on-air battle between terrorists and hero passengers. This would be a sombre enough experience for any American President given that nearly 3,000 people were killed on that infamous day back in 2001 which represented a terrible failure of US intelligence. But now it will also be a moment of bitter shame and humiliation too, thanks to Biden's appalling mishandling of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and abject surrender to the very people who helped commit the attacks by harbouring the terrorists who carried them out.

    “We’re focusing  on wokeness in our military as supposed to readiness,” Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak while describing the Biden administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan as a “disaster.” Johnson remarked, “I understand the American public’s desire to end these endless wars. I get that.” He said a “very strong case” could be made against the U.S. presence in Afghanistan following “special operation that we did in 2011 after 9/11.” “Twenty years later, we’ve brought a a sense of freedom — certainly to the women — of Afghanistan,” he added. “If you’re going to withdraw, there’s a way of doing it. This is not the way of doing it. This is a complete disaster. It is embarrassing. … I shudder to think of the sights of the  public executions [and] the subjugation of women. It didn’t have to go this way.” He continued, “I’ve always felt personally — and this probably runs against the grain — that we could have kept a special forces contingent there to support the Afghanistan forces to try...
    President Joe Biden is facing heavy criticism for being on vacation at Camp David as the Taliban makes further ground in Kabul, Afghanistan. “I don’t think he’s taken one question from the press this entire weekend, so this is a frightening situation,” said Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan. Iraq War veteran and Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Guy Reschenthaler criticized Biden and accused him of “putting his head in the sand and not taking questions” in hopes of avoiding association with “this military debacle,” reported the New York Post. “Conference calls between cabinet secretaries and senators don’t cut it in a crisis,” said Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton. “The dereliction of duty continues,” said Republican Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert. Republican Texas Rep. Michael McCaul referred to the U.S. the withdrawal as “an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions.” Rep. McCaul stated that this situation may be “worse than Saigon.” The White House sent out a tweet Sunday depicting Biden in a video conference with their national security team monitoring the situation in Afghanistan from Camp David. This morning, the President and Vice President...
    Taliban forces are gaining momentum, pushing the Afghanistan government's forces out of several districts and taking control of various weapons and military vehicles in the process, while the U.S. withdraws from the country. Insurgents have taken 900 guns, 70 sniper rifles, and 65 vehicles, Sky News reported. While this happens, the Afghanistan government continues to lose territory, having already left seven districts as the Taliban assumes control. AFGHANISTAN GOVERNMENT FORCES HAVE WITHDRAWN FROM 7 DISTRICTS OF THE COUNTRY: SOURCES So far, more than 1,000 members of Afghanistan's military have fled the country, crossing over into Tajikistan, Reuters reported. This led Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon to mobilize 20,000 military reservists to strengthen the border. The deterioration of the situation on the ground and the resurgence of the Taliban comes nearly 20 years after the U.S. and international forces entered Afghanistan to oust the Taliban, which had harbored Usama bin Laden. President Biden's plan is to fully withdraw from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, on the 20th anniversary of the Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. planned by bin Laden that led to...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden, whose empathy amid loss is his chief political characteristic, will travel Thursday to console families in Florida who are enduring the excruciating search for loved ones inside a seaside condo that suddenly collapsed a week ago.The devastating structural failure, which so far has resulted in 18 confirmed deaths with another 145 people still unaccounted for, could become the deadliest non-intentional building collapse in American history. It has raised new questions about the safety of high-rises that run for miles along the South Florida coast, along with similar developments across the nation. Biden, who will be joined by first lady Jill Biden in Florida, is awaiting findings from a team of six federal scientists and engineers collecting information on the ground. He hopes to use results from their investigation to determine how infrastructure like residential towers can be better fortified against catastrophic failure, according to officials.But before then, there are grieving families to comfort and exhausted rescue personnel to thank -- a presidential responsibility Biden takes as seriously as any."There's nothing worse than having to wait and wonder...

    Former President Donald Trump angrily rejected reports that social media bans had sent him sliding into irrelevance, insisting Monday that he was staying out of the headlines so attention would stay on President Joe Biden's troubles with inflation, the border and the Middle East. His comments come as his lieutenants plan a new social media platform to propel Trump back into the daily conversation. And a new poll suggests the former president retains his grip on Republicans, with a majority of the party still proclaiming Trump to be the 'true president.' But in a statement published on his website, Trump hit back at media reports that his online presence was no longer making an impact. Former President Trump, pictured during a visit to Trump Tower in New York Monday, issued a statement saying he had not been doing many media interviews in order to keep attention on President Biden's crises. He blasted claims that his website was struggling for attention and said a new social media platform was coming soon Trump published his statement on 'From the Desk...

"Afghanistan's going to fall apart. Russia and China are already pushing him around, so I'm very worried."
