Biden lets criminals run free in DC

An amazing statistic has been circulating among people who follow crime in Washington, D.C. In 2022, the U.S. attorney in Washington, appointed by President Joe Biden, declined to prosecute 67% of all arrests in the city. That's not 67% of all crimes committed. It's 67% of instances in which police have identified, captured, and charged a suspect. Prosecutors just let them go.

What's going on with the (maybe) Trump indictment?

It looks like there has been another delay, possibly a long one, in the local New York prosecutor's drive to indict former President Donald Trump. After great expectations 11 days ago — Trump's statement on Saturday, March 18, that he expected to be arrested the following Tuesday — the grand jury convened by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has heard additional witnesses in the Trump matter and has also moved on to other, unrelated cases without taking action on Trump. Now, there are reports the grand jury will not consider Trump for the rest of this week — and possibly most of next month.

Trump's Jan. 6 national anthem mashup

Former President Donald Trump does not usually play the national anthem when he appears at rallies around the country. Trump enters the arena to the strains of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA." He walks around the stage, soaking up his fans' enthusiasm and support, and begins his remarks when the song finishes.

Biden and Harris both weak going into 2024

President Joe Biden's job approval rating has fallen to 38% in a new poll from the Associated Press and the National Opinion Research Center — close to his lowest rating ever in that poll. Just last month, Biden's rating was 45%, which was as high as it has been since his rating began a long slide a few months after he took office.

Trump extends poll lead over DeSantis — and nobody else matters

In the RealClearPolitics average of polls, there are 59 polls, going back to January 2021, on the Republican presidential race. In 58 of them, former President Donald Trump was the leading candidate, sometimes by huge margins. There was one poll, from CNN, done between March 8-12, that showed Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the lead. The margin was small — DeSantis led Trump by just 2 points — but the significance was big. Here was a first sign that perhaps another Republican candidate could overtake Trump in the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
