1 – Putin photographed at ‘long but round’ table after health rumors
Washington Examiner reports:

Russian President Vladimir Putin is drawing fresh speculation about his health after Russian state media photographed him at the head of a new circular table.

Putin was joined by leaders of the Collective Security Treaty Organization countries, including Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, around the “long but round” table amid rumors about the Russian leader’s health.

The new table was used on Monday as leaders discussed “deeper military cooperation and more efficient interaction on an entire range of current and new challenges and threats, including those emanating from Afghanistan,” the Kremlin said, as reported by TASS.

Concerns about Putin’s health have been circulating since he ordered the invasion of Ukraine in February, as some experts had suggested the Russian leader could be taking steroids or undergoing chemotherapy after appearing bloated in recent appearances, including one when he was seen gripping a table. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov had repeatedly dismissed any concerns about Putin’s health, including last month when he denied that Putin had undergone surgery for thyroid cancer.

 MY TAKE: Whatever uncertainty we have about Putin’s health, we know one thing for sure: we can’t trust Russia for honest info. Also wondering why he bothers meeting in person at all. If you need to sit this far away at a table, stay home.



2 – Bill de Blasio eyeing run at newly drawn NY seat Jerrold Nadler has left behind
NY Post reports: Ex-New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told a state lawmaker he plans to run for New York’s newly drawn 10th Congressional district — the seat entrenched Rep. Jerrold Nadler is vacating to fight it out with former longtime ally Rep. Carolyn Maloney in the rejigged 12th.

De Blasio told state Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein (D-Borough Park) Tuesday afternoon that “he is committed to running in the race.”

“He’s in, he’s running – he’s calling people,” said Eichenstein, telling The Post de Blasio had a list of donors and other elected officials to inform.

“Based on the conversation that I had with him earlier today, he is running for Congress in the new NY-10 congressional district.”

“He called me earlier this afternoon. While I will keep our conversation private, I will confirm that we spoke for over 20 minutes about his decision to run for this district.”

MY TAKE: Is he serious? Is it possible that New Yorkers would vote for this guy? The report says Pinny Ringel, de BLAH-sio’s City Hall liaison to the Orthodox Jewish community, was trying to gauge support for his boss.

“He’s not going to get Orthodox support,” the source told The Post. “The average Joe on the street believes de Blasio is the worst mayor ever.”

I have to believe more New Yorkers feel exactly the same.

3 – Pastor at Calif. church describes takedown of gunman, how wife helped
NBC NEWS reports: The Rev. Billy Chang was only about a dozen steps away from the gunman when shots erupted Sunday, he recalls in a group message.

Chang, 68, described standing on a podium and watching the gunman “randomly aim at the crowd and shoot,” he said Monday in a message sent to a seminary group on Line messaging app, shared with and verified by NBC Asian America. “At first, I thought it was a toy gun, and it was a prank. At that time, I didn’t even know I should hide.”

Chang ran down the stage, grabbed a chair and threw it at the shooter. When the gunman fell and dropped the weapon, Chang and other congregants subdued him until police arrived. Chang’s wife, Yu Ling, told the Los Angeles NBC News affiliate that she threw the gun in the fridge and tied up the shooter’s legs with an orange electrical cord.

MY TAKE: These of heroes should be celebrated! God bless. Why didn’t Biden meet with them, too. Although they may have no interest in talking to him – maybe they’d prefer Trump…
