Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden is hopping around Iowa these days on one foot — the other being permanently lodged in his mouth. Poor guy can’t get through a speech without slandering someone, slurring a people or simply saying something incredibly stupid. Still, Mr. Biden’s support in polls nearly doubles his next-nearest rivals. The rest of the endless Democratic field is 30 points behind him. You know your party is in trouble when “Joe Biden” is the best it’s got. And it’s not that Democratic voters around the country are trembling in excitement over Mr. Biden. He is just the least terrible in a deeply terrible field. Democratic politicians

The dem party is not "in trouble", it is moribund. One of the funniest and saddest causes of its condition is that the media has enabled the dem party to the point of expiration by pushing their crackpot ideas and pimping out personalities. If the media had been functional and did honest critiques of bad ideas, the party would have had to deal with their internal idiocy long before it became fatal. Everyone knows that catching a serious disease in its early stages greatly improves the chance of surviving it. Now it is too late. All the people associated with the party have caught a PTD, politically transmitted disease, that is fatal over the long term and it's to late for penicillin. The only question is, will the party take the Country with it in its death throes? Delusional hatred of the opposition. Vicious smearing of all who disagree with them. Promotion of envy and uncontrolled anger between groups. Support of foreign influences that have long hated this Country. Tearing down of the core structures of the Country that have worked well for over 200 years and continue to do so, JUST so they can take power. Uncontrolled corruption of people and the government. This is what the dem party offers today. The reality that we are even listening to them instead of rounding them up for sedition shows that the Country is already poisoned. Can we recover?

I think they plan on running him and IF he wins, his VP will have to take over. Watch out for who he 'picks" as his VP. It will be a woman; she might be black. I really don't think Michelle wants the job. She has always loved being on stage with the stars.

Yes, Mr. Hurt is exactly right. The best short summary--- FTA:"And it’s not that Democratic voters around the country are trembling in excitement over Mr. Biden. He is just the least terrible in a deeply terrible field." Yes, this is clearly the case. The Dems are fielding no serious candidates, or at least that have shown up so far. They are all a bunch of socialists, race baiters and fools. None of them is even remotely electable, include Idiot Joe.

#4 is right on all points. Big MO doesn't want anything to do with returning to the White House. If Joe gets the nod, he will just be the token candidate. Remember, he gets to "choose" his running mate. anyone he (the DNC) wants. As soon as Joe resigns, Kamala/Stacy/Cory/Beto/Liz/Pete/Kilroy will become POTUS.

All the gun control zealots out in full force last week have apparently gone to the beach. An alarming shooting took place at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in San Antonio on Tuesday. Local media reported that "multiple shots were fired on two floors targeting ICE officials." But the Second Amendment saboteurs were AWOL. Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Federal government workers are under literal fire for enforcing our immigration laws and protecting America. But the left-wing Moms Demand Action ignored the story.

China has upped the ante in its trade dispute with the United States. By allowing the yuan to fall on foreign exchange markets, Beijing has shown how far it will go in response to existing U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods, as well as additional ones now threatened by President Trump. (Today, the White House announced that these new tariffs would go forward as expected on September 1 but delayed levies on certain products, including electronics, until December.) But China’s moves, bold and headline-grabbing as they are, also signal weakness: Beijing can no longer play the tit-for-tat tariff game with which it once engaged the Trump White House.

Two weeks before he would appear at the Iowa State Fair, surrounded by a sea of whiteness, Bernie Sanders was at the Italian restaurant Chi Spacca, in Hollywood, trying to shore up another key constituency. The presidential candidate, who remains a serious contender for the Democratic nomination despite having slipped in the polls, was having lunch with 25 or so creatives—writers, musicians, artists and social-media mavens, most of whom were African American or Latino. The topics of conversation were typically Sanders: Medicare for All, student debt relief, and criminal justice reform. But for keen political observers, the Chi Spacca strategy session—described by one attendee as closed-door

On January 27, 2018, Vladimir Putin became the longest-serving leader of Russia since Joseph Stalin. There were no parades or fireworks, no embarrassingly gilded statues unveiled or unseemly displays of nuclear missiles in Red Square. After all, Putin did not want to be compared with Leonid Brezhnev, the bushy-browed septuagenarian whose record in power he had just surpassed. Brezhnev, who ruled the Soviet Union from 1964 to 1982, was the leader of Putin’s gritty youth, of the long stagnation that preceded the empire’s collapse. By the end, he was the butt of a million jokes, the doddering grandfather of a doddering state, the conductor of a Russian train

Last year, we wrote about Confucius Institutes, Red China’s vehicle for conducting ideological warfare in the United States. Beginning in 2004, the Chinese government planted “Institutes” that offer Chinese language and culture courses at colleges and universities around the world, including more than 100 in the United States. As the National Association of Scholars (NAS) has documented, the Confucius Institutes avoid Chinese political history and human rights abuses, portray Taiwan and Tibet as undisputed territories of China, and educate a generation of American students to know nothing more of China than the regime’s official history.

Guards at the New York City jail facility where Jeffrey Epstein is said to have killed himself are suspected of falsifying log entries to show they were checking on the alleged sex trafficker and other inmates with greater regularity than was the case, according to a Tuesday report. Surveillance video reviewed after Epstein’s death shows guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center did not make some of the checks they claimed to have made in their logs, a source told the Associated Press. The New York Times reported, citing unnamed officials, that the guards fell asleep at some point and did not check on him for up to three hours.

The convenient death of accused child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein while in federal custody has set off a firestorm of controversy and speculation. Was it homicide or suicide? Was he murdered by others acting on behalf of his wealthy and powerful friends who might be exposed or incriminated in his upcoming trial? Was he killed by another inmate looking for street cred or acting out of a hatred for child abusers? Whether murder or suicide, how could the staff at the feds’ Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Manhattan have failed to keep such a high-profile defendant from harm? According to media reports, weeks before he died, guards found Epstein

Last week’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, has sent public discourse about immigration off the rails. It has allowed radicals to frame as racist normal law enforcement activities and immigration rules. We saw this in New York recently, with anti-ICE protesters stopping traffic on the West Side Highway and holding sit-ins at an Amazon store to protest the company’s compliance with immigration rules. In the left’s telling — and it’s increasingly hard to distinguish the hard left from the soft — the administration and those who support it are no better than the insane white nationalist who committed the El Paso atrocity.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court's conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

Is it possible prosecutors have lost track of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator in his pedophile ring? For the past few weeks, rumors have circulated that she’s 400 pounds and living in Florida, or that she’s living the high life in London or the Continent, but according to the Washington Post, authorities are having a hard time locating her. Those who know her say that it’s possible she is as much of a Houdini as Epstein. Both of them liked having secrets, and the way those secrets kept people off balance. “Jeffrey always wanted to give the impression that he was an international man of mystery—‘I control everyone
