Biden Has No Chance

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 8/31/2019 5:17:01 AM

The Democratic Party has a serious problem: their front-runner for the presidential nomination is a dope. You have read about Joe Biden’s “gaffes”: he can’t remember Barack Obama’s name, he tells a story about military heroism that is wrong in every detail, he can’t remember that by 2018, when the Parkland shooting happened, he was long gone from the vice presidency, and so on. Biden can’t get through a day without a blunder that makes headlines. But there is a difference. The classic Washington definition of a “gaffe” is when someone says what he really thinks. With Biden, headline-making blunders reveal significant cognitive difficulties.

I've been hoping Elijah or Nadler would get in the race, so we can watch Trump carry all 50 states.

It could wind up being Squaw Warren. Too soon to tell.

Let him be the nominee. It would be so easy for the President to make him appear the fool he is in debates. And he has a lot of baggage, such as his 'hands on' creepiness, and countless gaffes and outright lies. (Some of those so-called fact checkers would go crazy trying to spin him. Snopes tried to spin Obie's 57 states as he was tired.}

He won't be the nominee. The MSM has turned on him and they're surprisingly reporting his gaffes. After they gently put Biden to bed, they'll go full out for Warren.

Think about this, maybe the eventual Democrat Nominee for President has not yet emerged on the national scene this year, and that the big time Democrat movers and shakers are happy for their unelectable socialist oriented smurfs to burn themselves out during the primaries, and that the Democrat leaders will then end up engineering a brokered convention with their yet unknown nominee, most likely a minority politician, finally winning the contest through acclamation.

Friends: You have missed the point. Biden will win the nomination, even though everyone knows he has severe cognitive difficulties, BUT, BUT he will appoint/designate Obama as his vice -presidential nominee, to the absolute electrification of the dems and the Left, and the plot will then become clear. The 2020 election will be between Trump and Obama (serving first under the mask of the VP). Several months after his election, Biden, as expected,will fade away one way or another, and Obama will then have the opportunity to really finish the work he has begun. How do I know this? Between 2;30 and 2:45 AM in the morning hours, when 95% of the nation is sleeping (8+ times in the last 40 days) ULF entrainment waves with Obama's face, white teeth glittering, announced it --each session lasting an average of 10-12 minutes, all of which was buried and recorded in the subconscious of multi-millions of Americans, all of whom are unable to recollect what has happened, and/or who caused it, in their waking mind. This writer was and is absolutely stunned by these, truly mouth agape, and still not certain who or what had the capability to do this, and will not at this point speculate on it. I did write a testament to my grandchildren who will be of age and read it maybe 10-15 years hence, after I am gone. Truly. Starcypher

Except: no one not eligible to accede to the presidency is constitutionally allowed to run as Vice President. That doesn't rule out Sasquatch or Orca Windbag.

Trump cuts Bolton out

Posted by Pluperfect 9/1/2019 5:02:40 AM Post Reply
The Washington Post reports that John Bolton, President Trump’s national security adviser, has been excluded from discussions about an Afghanistan “peace deal” between the U.S. and the Taliban. Bolton apparently doesn’t favor such a deal. This is a president who rages against Fox News because people who appear on that network occasionally say things he doesn’t like hearing. So we shouldn’t be surprised that Trump doesn’t want to hear from Bolton on the subject of Afghanistan. Still, it’s extraordinary that Bolton has been shut out to the point that, according to the Post, he wasn’t even allowed initially to have his own copy of the draft agreement

ROCK HILL, S.C. — The crowd waiting to see former vice president Joe Biden speak at Clinton College, a historically black, Christian school just outside Charlotte, N.C., is not the crowd you might expect to find on a college campus. In other words, it's exactly the sort of crowd you'd expect to see at a Joe Biden campaign event. According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, only 10 percent of Democratic voters below the age of 34 are backing Biden, putting him in a distant third behind Bernie Sanders's 31 percent and Elizabeth Warren's 25 percent. The former vice president has maintained his frontrunner status thanks

For those of you who weren’t yet born on September 11, 2001, on that day Islamic jihadis killed nearly 3,000 Americans in attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon. A fourth plane was set to murder even more people by crashing into another landmark in Washington, but it was downed in Pennsylvania by its passengers in order to thwart the jihadis’ plans. Even those who don’t remember the day have probably learned about it in school, but few people are aware of the fact that the surviving plotters have not yet been brought to trial. That is now set to change on January 11, 2021, the day

A 19-year-old asylum-seeker was arrested in Villeurbanne, a suburb of Lyon, France, on Saturday after he allegedly killed a 19-year-old and wounded nine others at a subway stop. The suspect, armed with a knife and a "skewer" of some sort, was arrested at the scene. He is reportedly a 33-year-old Afghan citizen who was hoping to gain asylum in France. An eyewitness to the attack told France 24 that the attack was "frenzied": “There was a man at the 57 (bus stop) who started striking out with a knife in all directions,” said a young girl whose top was stained with blood.

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who used to write for the fictional TV show “West Wing,” proved this week that he hasn’t lost his touch. He showed that he’s not limited to discussing real news – he can make it up and report his fictional version as if it were real. Like much of what is wrong with the media, it began with a tweet. And then O’Donnell repeated his fictional claim on MSNBC Tuesday night. In on-air conversation with Rachel Maddow, whose show immediately precedes his, O’Donnell said he had information about how years ago businessman Donald Trump was “able to obtain loans when no one else would loan him money.”

With millions of people unemployed, finding a new job for a well-heeled Washington insider might seem like a low priority for Americans but I still believe it would be sensible and humane to find Bill Kristol another job. The poor fellow has spent years working in politics, and it just isn’t working out for him – or anyone else. Mr Kristol is of course the son of neoconservative theorist Irving Kristol. Neoconservative families are unusually rich in political commentators. Irving Kristol’s contemporary and ideological comrade Norman Podhoretz produced the columnist and editor John Podhoretz. Right-leaning historian Donald Kagan produced the neoconservative theorists Robert and Frederick.

A major headline from the Department of Justice's (DOJ) latest inspector general report is that fired FBI Director James Comey mishandled classified information. But you’d never know it from most of the day-after media reporting on the historic findings. The internal DOJ watchdog documented, irrefutably, that Comey leaked the contents of a classified memo to his legal team, first orally and then by providing a copy of the document. Some of the memo’s content was then leaked to a media organization by one of his lawyers. I first reported this when sources contacted me in late July and told me the inspector general (IG) had referred Comey

Shane Kohfield stood outside the home of Portland’s mayor in July wearing body armor and a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap, a large knife strapped to one shoulder and a copy of his concealed weapons permit displayed on the other. Using a loudspeaker, he warned the right-wing activists who turned out to condemn the city’s handling of recent violent demonstrations that they needed to protect themselves against their anti-fascist, or antifa, rivals. “If antifa gets to the point where they start killing us, I’m going to kill them next,” Kohfield, 32, said. “I’d slaughter them and I have a detailed plan on how I would wipe out antifa.”

Given Westerhout’s sensitive role as a confidante to the president, the few details the White House shared about her abrupt firing had Washington’s political-media class in a quiet frenzy on Thursday night and Friday.

Sirhan Sirhan, the man convicted of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, has been hospitalized after being stabbed in a San Diego prison Friday afternoon. California corrections officials did not identify Sirhan, 75, as the victim, but a source confirmed to the Associated Press that it was the man serving a life sentence in connection with the death of Kennedy, a U.S. senator from New York who was slain at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning the 1968 Democratic presidential primary in California. Sirhan was said to be in stable condition after the attack. Circumstances that led to the stabbing were not immediately known.

The Navy has ordered dozens of warships and aircraft to evacuate two bases in northeast Florida ahead of the anticipated arrival of Hurricane Dorian. On Thursday, the Navy's Fourth Fleet declared "Sortie Condition Alpha" for ships homeported at Mayport Naval Station at the mouth of the St. Johns River east of Jacksonville. “Sortie Condition Alpha" means units must prepare to dispatch or deploy because destructive weather is expected within 24 hours. Six ships — the destroyers Lassen, Paul Ignatius and Farragut; the littoral combat ships Billings and Milwaukee; and the patrol craft Shamal — have been directed to head out to sea to ride out the storm.

The Texas Democrat responded to questions on the campaign trail Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia, about concerns the government would take assault weapons away from gun owners. According to a Buzzfeed News reporter, he said: “I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do.” The candidate later shared that quote on Twitter, adding: "We need to buy back every single assault weapon."

Another Friday and another hamfisted attempt by the Drudge Report to undermine support for President Donald John Trump. A week ago, Matt Drudge was sure that the trade war with Red China was going to do The Donald in because the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down. A week before that Drudge had us in a recession not caused by Red China. Drudge has linked and bannered stories about wars with Iran, North Korea and Syria, which never materialized. I get that he has to link breaking news, but his continual selection of anti-Trump tripe trotted out by the Fourth Estate borders on desperation, and it diminishes and discredits Drudge

On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden might “embellish” stories to make them more dramatic, “But he’s not mendacious. He’s not irresponsible.” Brooks began by saying that Biden’s statements shouldn’t be compared to President Trump’s in any way. Brooks added, “Biden may be aging, and maybe that’s an issue. I think it’s a legitimate issue for voters to think about. But he’s not mendacious. He’s not irresponsible. He may embellish a story to improve its dramatic effect. And he may be forgetting things.

"The check's in the mail" is a promise that payment's been sent even if it hasn't. It's a stalling tactic to avoid pressure from creditors, from those expecting payment. That's the scam our government is running on the American people today, a ruse to tamp down expectations of justice. We all know that the FBI used an unverifiable document, the Steele dossier, to get a warrant to spy on Trump using the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This dossier was used to start a counterintelligence operation to plant spies in Trump's campaign, to get a special counsel to impeach the president.

Hurricane Dorian, a Category 4 with 140 mph winds as of early Saturday, is not expected to make landfall in Florida and instead will track up the coastline, possibly slamming into the Carolinas late Wednesday. Earlier projections had it hitting Florida head on as early as Monday. Areas all along the coast still are bracing for storm surge, heavy rain and dangerous, gusty winds. Other forecasts have the storm not making landfall at all in the U.S. A high-pressure system in the Atlantic is helping push the storm north. If Dorian remains farther off shore, parts of Florida may see only up to 10 inches of rain, significantly lower than earlier forecasts.

HANOVER, N.H. — Joe Biden painted a vivid scene for the 400 people packed into a college meeting hall. A four-star general had asked the then-vice president to travel to Konar province in Afghanistan, a dangerous foray into “godforsaken country” to recognize the remarkable heroism of a Navy captain. Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns. “We can lose a vice president,” he said. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” The Navy captain, Biden recalled Friday night, had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade,
