Biden’s Approval Rating Sinks to Lowest Point Yet

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has hit a new low point.

A new Reuters-Ipsos poll shows that Biden’s approval rating sank to 36 percent.

Voters largely disapprove of the president’s handling of the economy, despite White House aides arguing that it’s strong amid record-setting inflation.

The poll was conducted online from May 23 to 24 among 1,005 adults, including 456 Democrats and 358 Republicans, with a 4 percentage point margin of error.

State Farm Ends Program After Backlash

State Farm has announced that it discontinued its program with the GenderCool Project after facing backlash over reports that emerged showing that the company was donating books about transgender issues to school children aged 5 and up.

“State Farm’s support of a philanthropic program, GenderCool, has been the subject of news and customer inquiries,” the insurance company said.

“This program that included books about gender identity was intended to promote inclusivity. Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents. We don’t support required curriculum in schools on this topic. We support organizations providing resources for parents to have these conversations.”

The company continued, saying they “no longer support the program allowing for distribution of books in schools.”

“We will continue to explore how we can support organizations that provide tools and resources that align with our commitment to diversity and inclusion. We recognize and value the diversity of all people, and support a culture of respect and inclusion in the communities in which we live and work, as well as our workplace.”

Gas Could Soon Hit $6, Experts Say

Experts say that gas could reach $6 per gallon nationwide before this summer is over.

“There is a real risk the price could reach $6+ a gallon by August,” said Natasha Kaneva, JPMorgan’s head of global oil and commodities research.

Kaneva’s statement comes after JPMorgan’s report, titled Cruel Summer, which said: “With expectations of strong driving demand…US retail price could surge another 37% by August.”

AAA data shows that the national average for gas hit a record high of $4.52 per gallon — up 44 cents in one month.

However, some industry experts say the average may not hit $6.

“It’s hard to get to $6,” said Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates. “Before we get there, we would have significant demand destruction, not only here, but around the world.”

Whoopi Goldberg Threatens to “Punch Somebody” [Video]

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of The View, railed against “thoughts and prayers” in the wake of the shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, threatening to “punch somebody” if she heard any more Republicans say they were heartbroken over the violence.

“What are we doing?” Goldberg asked after playing clips of President Joe Biden and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) reacting to the shooting. “Why are we always at square one with this?”

Goldberg continued: “And I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’ma go punch somebody!”

“I can’t take thoughts and prayers. If your thoughts and prayers were really with everybody, you’d have done something by now.”

Co-host Ana Navarro echoed Goldberg’s sentiments later in the episode.

“I hope they roll up their little thoughts and prayers into a suppository and find what to do with it,” Navarro said.

Police Arrest Would-Be Smash and Grab Thieves [Video]

Police in Pennsylvania thwarted would-be smash-and-grab robbers from shoplifting from a cosmetics store.

The West Whiteland Police Department said officers had staked out an Ulta store in Exton after receiving a tip that a vehicle connected to robberies at other Ulta stores was headed to that location.

“Two males entered the store this morning and attempted to steal nearly $10,000 in fragrance,” the West Whiteland Township Police Department said. “Luckily, we had some information they were coming. The two subjects were arrested in the store and the merchandise was recovered. Good work by the Ulta employees.

“If you were shopping in the store, and witnessed what it looks like when two subjects actively resist arrest, we apologize for the mess,” the department added. “Thanks to our officers, you were never in harm’s way.”

Greene Wins GOP Primary

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has won Georgia’s Republican primary election after a failed effort to disqualify her from the race.

“Sending me back to Washington will send a message to the bloodsucking establishment: It is we who will set the policy agenda for the next decade and not them,” Greene said in her victory speech on Tuesday.

“We’re going to start speaking the truth more forcefully and more loudly than ever before.”

Greene has raised more than $9 million for her reelection campaign.

In November, the 47-year-old lawmaker will face Democratic candidate Marcus Flowers on the ballot for Georgia’s 14th District seat.

Intelligence Chief “Fully Confirms” Putin Has Cancer

Ukrainian intelligence reports have confirmed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has cancer.

Major General Kyrylo Budanov, Ukraine’s Head of Military Intelligence, confirmed the information during an interview with Sky News earlier this month.

“We can confirm that Putin is in very bad psychological and physical condition,” Budanov said. “He is very sick. He has various illnesses at the same time, one of which is cancer.”

Within the past few days, the intelligence official told the Ukrainian news outlet Pravada: “Yes, we fully confirm this information, that Putin has cancer. He has several serious illnesses, one of which is cancer.”

Budanov clarified that Put “still has at least a few years left.”

“It’s not worth hoping that Putin will die tomorrow,” he said. “Whether we like it or not, that’s the truth.”

Biden Calls For Stricter Gun Laws After Texas Shooting

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
2004: The United States Army veteran Terry Nichols is found guilty of 161 state murder charges for helping carry out the Oklahoma City bombing.

President Joe Biden has called on Congress to “stand up to the gun lobby” and pass legislation to implement increased restrictions on firearms after a mass shooting at a Texas elementary school.

“As a nation, we have to ask, when in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?” Biden said in remarks delivered from the White House. “I am sick and tired of it. We have to act. And don’t tell me we can’t have an impact on this carnage.” 

“It’s time to turn this pain into action,” Biden said. “We have to make it clear to every elected official in this country: It’s time to act.” 

Republican Rep. Randy Fine (FL) addressed the president’s calls for tighter gun laws in a tweet.

“I have news for the embarrassment that claims to be our President — try to take our guns and you’ll learn why the Second Amendment was written in the first place,” Fine wrote.

FBI Thwarts Plot Against Former President

The FBI thwarted an alleged ISIS plot to assassinate former President George W. Bush.

According to the Department of Justice, the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force agents arrested the suspect, Iraqi national Shihab Ahmed Shihab, in Ohio on Tuesday.

Shihab is accused of planning an operation called “Operation Iraqi Freedom,” wherein he would smuggle four Iraqi nationals into the United States to kill the former president in “retaliation for Iraqi deaths.”

The DOJ said that Shihab faces 10 years in prison for attempting to bring someone illegally into the U.S. and up to 20 years for aiding and abetting the attempted murder of a former U.S. official.

Bush’s chief of staff, Freddy Ford, provided a statement to The Hill, neither confirming nor denying the alleged plot.

“President Bush has all the confidence in the world in the United States Secret Service and our law enforcement and intelligence communities,” Ford said.

Shooting at Texas Elementary School Claims At Least 15 Lives

At least 14 students and one teacher are dead after a shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

Gov. Greg Abbott (R) identified the gunman as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos.

“He shot and killed — horrifically, incomprehensibly — 14 students, and killed a teacher,” Abbott said, adding that Ramos “is deceased and is believed that responding officers killed him.”

The ages and names of the victims were not immediately released.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted: “Heidi & I are fervently lifting up in prayer the children and families in the horrific shooting in Uvalde. We are in close contact with local officials, but the precise details are still unfolding. Thank you to heroic law enforcement & first responders for acting so swiftly.”

Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) promptly blamed lawmakers, saying that school shootings are “unfortunately, an American problem that it seems many lawmakers refuse to solve.”

“The problem is that firearm homicides have increased 40 percent for people between the ages of 10 and 24-years-old in America. Those are the stats for 2020. It’s unacceptable and I can’t believe lawmakers refuse to act,” Escobar told CNN.

Several Democrats condemned Congress for its inaction on guns, which Cruz quickly addressed.

“Inevitably, when there’s a murderer of this kind, you see politicians try to politicize it, you see Democrats and a lot of folks in the media whose immediate solution is to try to restrict the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens,” Cruz told reporters. “We know what does prevent crime, which is going after felons and fugitives and those with serious mental illness.”
