Dow soars at opening. Now up 900.

From CNBC:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 764 points, or 2.3%. The S&P 500 jumped 3.7%, while the Nasdaq Composite surged 5%.

The consumer price index, a broad-based measure of goods and services costs, rose just 0.4% for the month and 7.7% from a year ago. That was its lowest annual increase since January. Economists were expecting increases of 0.6% and 7.9%, according to Dow Jones. Excluding volatile food and energy costs, so-called core CPI increased 0.3% for the month and 6.3% on an annual basis, also less than expected.

“It certainly shows how much the markets been keyed about, worried about and wants to run on CPI if you get any sort of help here,” said John Briggs of NatWest. “It just brings up the idea of peak inflation, peak Fed...The Fed will slow and peak rather than continue to aggressively hike at 75 basis point as at a time.”

The Russian MOD announces the army is evacuating Kherson

West of the Dnipro. On other words it's HIMARs time for the boats that are going to cross the river.
DefMon also has pictures the orcs are building trenches in northern Crimea.




Ukraine is winning.

I am just left speechless. This is an incredible victory. Wouldn't want to be an orc trying to get out of town. Ukraine is teaching lessons on how to fight a war that will be studied for generations.

Reports of Russians blowing bridges in Kherson Oblast.


An army does this when they are pulling out.
I could be wrong but I think there will be no Russians west of the Dnipro in a week or two.

Just watching msnbc

We won't hear anything more from AZ until 9PM tonight est? When late votes are reported. Kelly in great shape though.
Outstanding votes in NV are from Vegas and Reno. Probably good for Dems per Kornackie.

I've been following the cross examination of Oath Keeper Stewart Rhodes on twitter.

By the time this is over (probably not today) there is just going to be a wet puddle where he used to be.
