Then again, Jackie Kennedy said the Onassis security team was much better than the Secret Service. So go private? Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. But if some nutcase kills RFK, Jr. Mayorkas should be drawn and quartered, along with his “bipartisan” committee.

OPEN THREAD: Now what?

I LIKE THE LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN: The Tears at WaPo Over the SCOTUS Decision Are Bitter Indeed. “This is what we’re dealing with today. It’s a collision of reality with a retelling of history that’s convenient to liberals who are so terrified of losing power and seeing Trump return that they can justify literally anything in their quest. I am counting the days until we see calls from the left – likely from the Washington Post – to simply cancel the 2024 elections and allow Joe Biden to remain in office. Why? To save Democracy, of course.”

MICROBIOME NEWS: Cheap Daily Supplement Seems to Boost Brain Function in Older Adults. “The twin who unknowingly took inulin or FOS generally scored higher on a cognitive test three months later. What’s more, the daily fiber supplements were linked to slight changes in the gut microbiome between twins. The beneficial Bifidobacterium, for instance, were more plentiful in twins taking inulin or FOS.”

AVOIDING GAY ORGIES IS PROBABLY THE SINGLE BIGGEST PREVENTIVE: What is mpox, and how you can protect yourself. “Because mpox remains rare, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not recommending vaccination for everyone at this time. The 2022 mpox outbreak mainly involved men who have sex with men, and many men in that risk group did opt for vaccination at the time. Mpox is also highly preventable with a few simple steps.”

I’m so old I can remember when mpox was called monkeypox before they changed the name because monkeys are racist or something.

MICHAEL WALSH: Now They Tell Us.

Breaking news from 2020: “It’s Official: We Can Pretty Much Treat Covid Like the Flu Now.” What do you mean “now,” white man?

The Malevolent Midget is gone now, pulling down his handsome pension for his “service,” but the evil that he did lives on after him. Should Trump actually overcome the forces arrayed against him and actually pull a Grover Cleveland and get re-elected to the office from which a “fortified” election forcibly ejected him in 2020, a just universe would allow him to deal out some well-deserved payback for the forces behind the Russia Hoax, the Climate-Change Hoax, and the Covid Hoax, not to mention the abrogation of American sovereignty at the southern (and northern) borders, the collapse of the American military into a sob-sisterhood of feminist resentment and gay and “transsexual” triumphalism, and all the other ills currently attendant upon these United States.

What lessons can we learn from this belated admission that the entire clusterkluge was a “mistake”? How to compensate for those who watched their loved ones die from behind a plate-glass window in Mengele Memorial Hospital? For those who — like a dear friend and mentor of mine — died from a second shot of the “vaccine” in the early days of the panic? For the families disrupted, restaurants closed, businesses destroyed, industries wrecked — and all with the witting complicity of the mainstream media, which so enthusiastically hosanna-ed the official narrative, despite the evidence of their own senses?

I’m happy to see that the “Supreme Court Restores Trump to Colorado Primary Ballot in Unanimous Ruling ahead of Super Tuesday.” But what lessons has he learned from his role in the 2020 debacle?

THE ATLANTIC: Other Presidents Have Retired in March of Their Reelection Year.

With more than 100,000 people casting a vote against the incumbent president in the Democratic primary last week in Michigan, a swing state essential to his reelection, the wisdom of Joe Biden’s decision to face voters in November is again under intense scrutiny. Historically speaking, it isn’t too late for President Joe Biden to voluntarily drop his reelection bid. And he must know it: Two other Democratic presidents in his lifetime surprised the nation by announcing in March of an election year that they would not seek a new term.

The enormous challenges that confronted Harry Truman and Lyndon B. Johnson—wars in Korea and Vietnam—have little substantive resemblance to Biden’s current predicament. But the question Biden now faces is the same: Should he risk his presidential legacy by seeking another term in office? The events of 1952 and 1968 are as much a guide to making what is a hard, lonely decision as they are a warning: Having lost the advantages that incumbency incurs, the Democratic Party lost both of the elections that followed, and Republicans took the presidency.

What today’s Democrats are asking themselves and one another amidst all the flop-sweat is whether keeping Biden on the ballot would be worse for them down-ticket than installing somebody, anybody else at the top.
