Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign could be "blown up" by suspicions over Joe's and his son Hunter's dealings with Ukraine, according to one of his top allies. "This whole thing could go two ways for him," said Ed Rendell, 75, a former Pennsylvania governor. "If Trump’s ads are significantly good, even if they’re all lies. It could hurt Joe. Voters get tired. Joe's popular point was that he could get back to normalcy, and that gets blown up if voters think he'll be bogged down with Republican investigations when he's in office." Rendell, who was recently used by Biden, 76

Comments:

Lots of skeletons are in Crazy Old Joe's closet. He may want to quit now ''to spend more time with his wife and children''.

Yeah, we are all hoping that crooked ol' Idiot Joe gets at least a LITTLE blowback from his criminal conduct. This whole thing was SUPPOSED to be about "get Trump". And now the real blowback is going to be right where it belongs, on Idiot Joe Biden and his crooked son.

I believe there are multiple violations of the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) on the part of multiple Democrats.

Joe was a placeholder for whoever the real leaders of the Dem Party want as the nominee. It might be Hillary, but it might be Pochahontus Warren. Hillary campaigned once in Sept for Warren. Then she began her media blitz this week, ostensibly because she has yet another book.

Remember Trump was elected less than three years ago to drain the DC Swamp and Biden is the ultimate DC swamp rat having been there as an elected liberal Democrat politician for over forty years. Clearly Biden has acted as a “rainmaker” for his son in the two countries were Biden was appointed the point man by Obama to spearhead US foreign policy, China and Ukraine. If so, those would be big time corruption based conflicts of interest that the Democrats do not want investigated. In China Biden’s son after arriving on Air Force Two with Biden came away with private equity holdings of over a billion dollars that not even the big US banks could secure. In Ukraine Biden’s son dispute having no experience in the energy sector, was given a lucrative job on the Board of Directors of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company to the tune of $83,000 a month that was laundered through two other foreign countries before those payments ended up in Biden’s son’s bank account. In contrast, after being elected, to alleviate any charge of a conflict of interest Trump banned the Trump Organization, that is Trump’s business, run by his adult children, from entering into any new business deals for as long as he is President. Yet the congressional Democrats are claiming that Trump, not Biden, should be investigated. So if Biden is out it will probably be Warren who gains the short term political benefit. It looks like old Bernie has a defective ticker and may also be out, as at Bernie’s age chest pains and heart problems are not conducive to Bernie having the energy to finish a four year term as President. So Bernie looks to be out. The big money men do not like Warren or her socialist policies, so chances are Warren will eventually be out. That probably leaves a yet undisclosed Democrat candidate who has not yet emerged, who could that be? If that candidate emerges right before the Democrat Convention and is handed the Democrat nomination there could be a war between the street level Democrat factions.

You can bet the RNC is putting together a long list of Joe Biden's greatest video hits and this doesn't count the thousands of private You Tube clips that are going to be generated. If Biden wants to try to sue for libel and prove that they are lies in court he should call their bluff...but I doubt he will.

"Joe's popular point was that he could get back to normalcy". "Normalcy" here is defined as the Democrats as the Harlem Globetrotters beating up on the hapless Republican as the Washington Generals. The 'Rats win EVERY issue and collect graft and corruption on an Industrial scale, while the hapless Republican 'Loyal Opposition' sits on their hands and mumbles about proper Congressional etiquette, all the time collecting a nice salary, retirement and health care plan, and maybe a little graft on the side for themselves....... AS OUR BELOVED AMERICA IS SHOVED DOWN THE SEWER by the Two Wings -Democrat and Republican- of the Vulture that is the Corrupt Deep State. THAT is Joe Biden, Zippy, HildeBeast and the Democ'RAT idea of 'Normalcy'.

Joe Biden’s third quarter fundraising numbers are out. And they are an ominous sign for the former vice president’s 2020 candidacy. According to Bloomberg, Biden told donors at a fundraiser in Palo Alto, CA that his campaign raised $15 million in the period from July-September. That number is down markedly from the $21.5 million he brought in during the second quarter. Biden’s third quarter haul also, notably, lags behind that of two of his rivals. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) brought in $25 million over the past three months, while South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $19.1 million. Sen. Elizabeth

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change. Agriculture — and the changes in land-use it necessitates — accounts for about 25% of

Cruise ships are big business for port cities around the world. But starting next year, Cannes, one of the world's most famous ports-of-call, will no longer welcome them unless they comply with strict pollution controls. Passengers who choose to sail on dirty vessels will have to disembark elsewhere. So far, the industry doesn't seem worried. It should be. Increasingly, consumers are voicing concerns about the environmental effects of their travel and pressuring companies that don't meet their heightened standards.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

The Deep State spook filed a complaint on August 12 based on second-hand knowledge and hearsay of Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, so Schiff had knowledge of the accusations and worked discreetly for up to two weeks.Schiff is now claiming he has never met with or spoken to the whistleblower — in fact, Schiff is claiming he doesn’t even know the identity of the whistleblower!

MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.
