Joe Biden got demolished

When one candidate enjoys an enormous lead in the polls in a field of two dozen, he's bound to be a target on the debate stage — the one person everyone has an incentive to take down a peg. And so it was that in Miami on Thursday night, in the second half of the first Democratic debate, former vice president Joe Biden became a punching bag. It started with Rep. Eric Swalwell taking a dig at the 76-year-old Biden's age by calling on him to "pass the torch" to a younger generation.

I heard a commentary (sorry, forgot who) that it was Kennedy who used the "pass the torch" meme against against Nixon as the only way to counter the relative peace/prosperity/calm of the Eisenhower years. Could it be that Biden stole that one as well?

"Pass the torch." I don't even know if he's able enough to lift the torch.

Actually #1, it was Swalwell last night who said pass the torch, not Biden. Swalwell was taking a did at Biden. I think Biden did rather well. It's the progressive pundits who are trying to affect the choice of candidate who are muddying the waters and pushing their favorite. It's called propaganda.

Biden has always been a weak candidate. Its probably why Obama picked him as VP in the first place. He could control him. Sounds like Biden was the equivalent of a pinata at the debate. He doesn't know how to effectively handle attacks. Don't see how Biden makes it through the primaries.

Were I creepy ol’ Joe I’d have told Swallower, “Perhaps it is time to pass the torch but not to lightweights like you.”

Sure, Biden was roughed up, slapped around, obliterated, destroyed. He came out looking like Rocky at the end of Rocky 1. But! Does it matter at all in a kabuki theater? This was all a network/Democratic party show. It is designer politics, carefully orchestrated to end up with the choice the party elites make. Can you even so much as imagine that a scummy thing like Hillary Clinton could have risen to the top by herself? Is it remotely possible Hillary hung on all by herself filling whole livingrooms with loyal supporters while Trump was overflowing huge stadiums? No. reality tells us a whole truth about what is really going on. There is no reliable mass media anymore. There is only this massive unified propaganda machine- Yes! Even Fox is part of it. It has as much to with what is really going on as a Mutt and Jeff comic strip.

In Biden's defense, he had to legislate with the elected people he had and not the ones who might be acceptable 40 years down the road. With that said: Kudos to Joe for not bringing up Kammie's unorthodox means of ... propelling her political career.

After being demolished Biden has run to Jessie Jackson for help! Biden is clearly in the past and it looks like the younger people in the leftist and liberal Democrats recognize that fact.

“In our constitutional order, a vague law is no law at all.” Those are the words that opened one of the most important decisions of this Supreme Court term, in United States versus Quartavious Davis. (Snip) The author of that sweeping decision in favor of criminal defendant rights was Justice Neil Gorsuch, the first nomination by President Trump to the Supreme Court.

Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign calls to mind nothing so much as Sideshow Bob among the rakes. It's been one media firestorm after another, most of them totally self-inflicted. What hilarious pratfall will strike next?It's true, Biden is currently leading Trump in head-to-head polls — and by more than any other potential Democratic nominee, though Bernie Sanders is close on his heels. But insofar as traditional political skills like messaging, campaigning, and sheer common sense matter at all, Biden is an exceedingly risky choice to take on Trump.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress has issued its “Nation’s Report Card” on America’s schools and the data is clear. Private schools — which are mostly religious — outperform their public-school counterparts in science scores in almost every subcategory, including physical science, life science and earth science. But, I thought religious schools were backwoods bulwarks of knuckle dragging science deniers? After all, if you listen to the likes of Rob Miller, the superintendent of Bixby Public Schools in Bixby, Oklahoma, you’d never think it possible that religious schools could even teach science (Snip) Our “Nation’s Report Card,” however, appears to disagree.
Trump's 2020 campaign kickoff

The line from Donald Trump's reelection campaign kickoff rally that most stuck with me was: "Don't ever forget this election is about you. It's about your family, your future and the fate of your country." That sentiment -- that voters should be thinking about themselves and their families when they vote -- is the key to illustrating how the healthy economy, which has blossomed on Trump's watch, has tangible effects on the lives of voters. While the media and Democrats will relentlessly focus on Trump and whatever they perceive as the outrage of the day, the President's idea to get voters
A Madisonian Remedy to
the Social Media Revolution

Factions, argued James Madison in Federalist No. 10, had ever been the bane of governments grounded in the consent of the governed. However, an improved political science informed the new charter of government that he and his fellow delegates drafted a few months before in Philadelphia over the course of the summer of 1787. Well-designed institutions that minimized freedom’s costs offered a more promising approach to preserving freedom. So effective is Madisonian political science that it provides remedies for such up-to-date threats to freedom as social media and the giant companies that monopolize the provision of information about us and about others.

On Tuesday night my CNN colleague Chris Cuomo correctly asserted that I, and people like me, embrace terms such as “nationalist” and “America First” -- phrases that are, in his view, “stained.” He challenged me to provide an example of “nationalism that was positive and not oppressive to another.” My immediate answer was “American nationalism,” to which he responded, “There’s no American nationalism.” It is abundantly clear, of course, that American nationalism is a real thing. We can consider, of course, the merits of this ideology, but we cannot honestly litigate its existence. Our TV debate that night revealed a foundational chasm

Ignore the battlefield prep from the mainstream media – Donald Trump is the odds-on favorite for reelection against whichever weirdo, loser or mutation the Democrats finally pick as their nominee. The leaked polls purportedly showing Trump deep underwater to Floppy Joe and Bernie Stalin and that has-been furry from Texas are about as reliable as the ones the placed Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit in the White House. She’s now stumbling around the woods guzzling from a queen-sized goblet of Trader Joe’s Chardonnay while The Donald is racking up the greatest streak of conservative victories since Ronald Reagan – maybe even Cal Coolidge.
President Trump was right on Iran 4 replies

With the latest news that Iran shot down a United States Navy drone, it shows that President Trump was right all along. The Iranian regime cannot be trusted, and appeasement was never a practical or realistic solution. When President Trump announced the American withdrawal from the nuclear deal last year, his political opponents loudly criticized his strategy, arguing that the agreement signed under President Obama was the only way to contain Iranian nuclear ambitions. Since then, however, Iran has demonstrated that the skepticism that President Trump has held of the appeasement policy of his predecessor was in fact entirely justified.

The Democrats, despite their exaggerated claims about the fabled “blue wave” of 2018, have a very tenuous grasp on the House majority. The Republicans need to flip only 18 seats in 2020 to regain control of that body — and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has already identified nearly twice that number of vulnerable Democrats in districts won by President Trump during the last presidential election. Moreover, the NRCC will certainly exploit the all too accurate public perception that House Democrats have veered sharply to the left and accomplished virtually nothing beyond investigating President Trump and obstructing his agenda.

Four years ago, Donald Trump made a historic announcement: he would launch a campaign for president to put our country back on the right track and Make America Great Again. He called for “a leader that can bring back our jobs, can bring back our manufacturing, can bring back our military, can take care of our vets.” He won the 2016 election as a “jobs president,” driven by an ambitious agenda for our country, and immediately got to work. A few short years later, President Trump’s long list of promises made, promises kept has energized Americans in every part of the country

Last night, Kamala Harris repeated her story about how, thanks to busing, she was able to be part of only the second class to integrate in the Berkeley public school system. She used this story to thrash Joe Biden, who offered anti-busing legislation as a U.S. Senator in the 1970s. Last year, I questioned Harris’ story: [I]s it. . .true that Harris was in only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools? Based on an examination of old yearbooks from Berkeley High, Freida Powers reports that classrooms at Berkeley High were already integrated in 1963, a year before Harris was born. I wondered whether Harris

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G.

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

2020 contender Kamala Harris came out swinging with a memorable performance in the second night of Democratic debates in Miami. It was Harris' confrontation with former Vice President Joe Biden where she pressured to get him on the record on his past support of segregation-endorsing Democrats and as well as his past stance against busing to desegregate public schools, that left a mark on would-be voters' minds. In an interview with "CBS This Morning" Friday, Harris responded to criticism from Biden's camp that the contentious moment was a "low blow." "It was about just speaking truth and as I've said
