If you happen to be a Taylor Swift fan then you probably already know why. I’m enchanted to announce my next tour: Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, a journey through the musical eras of my career (past & present!) To get those you had to receive an email with a special code to buy tickets for a specific night. No, this is not the part of the post where I confess to having a Taylor Swift tattoo. I don’t know if that made the situation better or worse but a lot of people are angry, including some socialist lawmakers:Somebody couldn't get Taylor Swift tickets.
The whole poll is just bad news for Democrats, starting with the generic ballot numbers. You may remember that Trump’s unexpectedly strong showing in 2020, especially with Hispanic voters, was seen as a worrisome trend by Democrats. Democrats are slipping among Black voters too.”Black voters form the core of the Democratic Party base. That may seem large, but it’s small from a historical standpoint… What current polls indicate is a 15-point decline from that margin among Black voters. Finally, the reasons for the changes in the generic ballot are the same ones we’ve talked about with every other poll this fall.1 month ago HotAir
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) attended the ALCS championship game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Cruz, who lives in Houston, was there to cheer on the Houston Astros against the New York Yankees. The winner of five out of seven games would go to the World Series. The Astros knocked off the Yankees in four games and will face the Phillies in the World Series. After losing to Atlanta in last year’s World Series, Houston is 7-0 this postseason, earning the fifth pennant in franchise history and another chance at its second championship.1 month ago HotAir
A FOX 10 InsiderAdvantage poll conducted this week gives Republican Kari Lake an eleven-point lead over her debate-adverse Democratic rival, Katie Hobbs. With less than 2 weeks to go before the November election, Republican Kari Lake leads Democrat Katie Hobbs by 11 percentage points. It’s almost impossible to ignore the possibility that Hobbs’ refusal to debate Kari Lake is coming back to bite her. For her part, Kari Lake has turned that into a rallying cry. Kari Lake isn’t just “doing better” among Hispanic voters than previous Republicans in Arizona.1 month ago HotAir
In Zagreb, Croatia on Tuesday Pelosi promised that Congress will include more aid for Ukraine in the annual government funding bill. “Congress has secured over $60 billion in security, economic, humanitarian and budget assistance for Ukraine,” Pelosi said in Croatia at the first parliamentary summit for Ukraine’s Crimea platform.

Women have risen up and burned their hijabs in bonfires to speak out in favor of women’s rights. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei led Iranian lawmakers to vote in favor of executing 15,000 protesters for participating in the protests. The Iranian Parliament has not officially confirmed the vote in favor of mass executions but the Iranian officials did advocate for “no leniency” for protesters days ago.

Actor Ralph Fiennes is speaking out against the verbal abuse and death threats lodged against JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series of books. My son was eight when the first Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was published. JK Rowling deserves every honor that has been bestowed upon her. Not all undergraduates at Homerton College are happy about the decision made by the student union office holders. He calls the relentless abuse and death threats lodged against J.K. Rowling “disgusting” and “appalling.”“J.K.1 month ago HotAir
Today, ProPublica has a new report based on five months of work looking into what the committee was investigating. The focus is the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab at the center of the suspicion about Covid’s origin. When I wrote about the report yesterday I found the contents not terribly convincing because they lacked the kind of detail contained in this ProPublica report. Having read the ProPublica story, this does seem to be a pretty major advance in what we know. Specifically, something bad happened at the WIV in the fall of 2019, probably a biosafety emergency and the government was worried about it.1 month ago HotAir
