 On energy, as on a number of other issues, the Democratic Party is on a collision course with reality. Call me an optimist, but throughout human history when ideology meets reality, reality generally wins.

·        Well, it looks like Pelosi is airborne. China threatens to retaliate for Pelosi’s Taiwan trip by letting her return safely.

·        The US Misery Index is calculated by adding the Unemployment Rate and the Inflation Rate. It has risen from 7.8 to 12.66 during Biden’s term, so far. Based on historical patterns, it implies that the Democrats will lose 30-40 seats in Congress at the midterm elections and a few in the Senate, too. This article from Bloomberg must be painful for Democrats. It’s one of their more reliable party organs.
