    Whether they admit it or not, one big question has to be on the mind of pretty much every Democrat in the country: What happens if Joe Biden drops out of the 2024 race?This is certainly a fair question. Earlier today, my colleague Nick Arama gave us another example of the President's ongoing deterioration. More examples of such are legion. But what really has to be troubling for Democrats is this: If Biden drops out, they have no good candidate to replace him. Just this morning, RealClearPolitics' Charles Lipson presented a great analysis of the problem Democrats face if this...

    Goodhue, Minnesota, a small town in the southeastern part of the state, lost its entire police force after the chief and other members of the force handed in their resignations. “I think we’re all a little bit blindsided by it, but we’re resilient and we’re going to move forward,” Goodhue Mayor Ellen Anderson Buck told Fox 9. “I want to reiterate that we will have police coverage in the city of Goodhue,” Buck said. “That is not an issue.” Police Chief Josh Smith, who will continue to serve in his position until Aug. 24, told city officials that he could...

    President Richard Nixon, the 37th president, announced he would be resigning from the office on this day in history, August 8, 1974. In a speech delivered to the nation from the Oval Office, Nixon said his resignation would go into effect "at noon tomorrow." On August 9, Gerald Ford would assume the presidency as the nation's 38th president. Nixon was the first U.S. president to resign from the position. He left the highest office in the land in the face of likely impeachment amid the Watergate scandal, which involved his administration's cover-up of spying activities on the Democratic Party's headquarters...

    Dr. Mark Tykocinski recently resigned as president of Philadelphia's Thomas Jefferson University after coming under fire for “liking tweets” critical of COVID vaccines and trans surgeries for kids. The unbridled audacity! He’s lucky he didn’t get the electric chair!YouTube screengrabYou know the concept of free speech is out the proverbial window when one can no longer even make a one-word ‘comment’ on someone else’s speech!This news would be distressing to Thomas Jefferson, were he alive today, as he and the rest of the founders knew that ‘democracy’ is impossible without the absolute right to freedom of speech.The Inquirer reported that...

    Latondra Newton, who has served as Disney’s chief diversity officer since 2017, is leaving the company. An internal memo from Disney chief human resources officer Sonia Coleman announcing Newton’s departure was circulated to staff Tuesday.

Disney said Newton’s direct reports will now report to Julie Merges, SVP Talent Acquisition, who will run the DEI operations on an interim basis while the search for Newton’s replacement is underway....

    If these reports from someone close to Tucker Carlson are true – and I bet that they are – some very talented people seem to regard Fox News as a sinking ship and are hopping off. Chadwick Moore, a frequent guest on Tucker Carlson’s former Fox News show and the author of a forthcoming biography of Tucker, revealed Saturday that 9 former staffers of his show have left the network to work for their old boss as he rolls out his new program on Twitter… and quite possibly a slate of other offerings there as his organization builds. My sources...

    Monday, March 6, Florida Secretary of State Cord Byrd announced that Florida was resigning from ERIC, the phantom address storage system. Just one week before, he had told some of the state’s citizens who had proven ERIC’s foibles to Tallahassee – that they should “just forget it”, that Florida was “never going to get out of ERIC”. Across the state, in a number of counties, there had been a rising movement to hold county Supervisors of Election responsible for the bad addresses on the rolls, and to get out of ERIC. However, Tallahassee still loved ERIC, and they made that...

    One in four Massachusetts physicians plans to leave medicine in the next two years, according to a survey from the Massachusetts Medical Society that is renewing concerns about the stability of the state’s health care workforce. More than half of the almost 600 doctors surveyed said they had already cut back on time with patients — or were likely to do so. Fifty-five percent of doctors overall said they felt burned out. But the rate varies by gender: 63% of women doctors reported burnout, compared with 47% of men. Concerns about staffing shortages have plagued the health care industry and...

    According to a source familiar with the situation, embattled New York Republican Rep. George Santos informed House Republicans on Tuesday that he will resign from his committee positions. Santos reportedly told House Republicans in a closed-door meeting that will step down from his positions on the House Small Business Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee because “he’s a distraction” after it was revealed after his election that several aspects of his resume are fabrications. Santos has faced numerous calls for his resignation, even from within the Republican Party despite the Republicans’ extremely slim majority in the House....

    The unexpected announcement of the resignation of the execrable Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand brought a moment of hope that the Kiwis might recover from her misgovernance of the lovely island nation. Monica Showalter three days ago explained her draconian lockdown (the worst in the world outside of China), destruction of the economy, inflation, green hysteria policies, and China sucking up that drove her approval from 70% to 29%.But her successor is likely to be no better, as Peter Smith write at The Pipeline:…it would be a mistake to think that Chris Hipkins, her replacement as prime minister,...

    Okay, the buzzards are circling over the White House as well as the Green Corvette garage.

I'll start off with January 28, 2023. Why? Because I already joked with radio show host Brian Craig that Biden would resign the moment Brian steps aboard the Celebrity Apex cruise ship which is scheduled to embark on...
