How Joe Biden Gets Away With
Calling A Voter A Fat, Dumb, Liar

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 12/11/2019 4:44:43 AM

Everyone was buzzing last week about Joe Biden’s confrontation with a voter in Iowa who had the temerity to ask about son Hunter’s extremely lucrative job on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma—a job Hunter Biden received one month after his father was named the Obama administration’s “point person” on Ukraine. Biden, obviously, did not take well to the suggestion he had enabled corruption by his son. As a general rule, I’d like to see more bare-knuckles between politicians and voters in campaign settings, but the real revelation here is that Joe Biden is totally, utterly unprepared to answer obvious difficult questions

Somewhat of a long article that basically boils down to : Biden is an idiot and Trump possesses that unknown thing in D.C. called COMMON SENSE. In my mind, it's really that simple.

Hmmm . . . How Biden gets away with it? . . . really? Why even ask such a question? Of course, he is one of the MSM's "fair haired boys". Imagine if Trump said something similar? You know what would have happened!

How did Hillary get away with calling us irredeemable and deplorable? Or did she? Most certainly our democrat neighbors are fine with their "leaders" disparaging us, the media is fine with disparaging us. PC isn't at all PC it is progressive, liberal, actually communist approved language. It's open season on any who dare push back against the march to totalitarian collectivism. Democrats are fine with extortion when their guy does it . Democrats are fine with tainted elections as long as they are the ones working with foreign countries to slander the competition. He gets away with it because our democrat neighbors don't give a damn about us; all they want to do is win by any means even if in so doing they destroy the republic.

He gets away with it because if anyone ever offered to take him up on a behind the shed brawl, his government paid protection would step in. It's like advocating for gun confiscation, while surrounded by armed guards.

I agree with his conclusion - Biden will get away with almost anything because he will preserve the Deep State and faux intelligentsia in the media. Hardly ever mentioned is that the guy questioning Biden was a Democrat.

When Joe Biden called that voter a liar, and fat and dumb, he was standing about 3 feet away from Biden. Had I been that voter in those circumstances, I am absolutely sure that I would have clocked Biden and ruined his $50K dental veneers. That would have been consistent with my past behavior . Too bad I wasn't invited to the town hall.

The Iowa voter apparently supported Biden to be in attendance at the town hall. Biden sure does have that 'macho complex' but knows no one would take him up on his challenge that's why he spouts off like he does. This isn't new Biden was nasty twenty years ago and also worthless back then always cutting deals to get paid he hit the jackpot with the Ukraine slush fund.

Biden gets away with it the same way all democrats get away with what would be political suicide for republicans. The leftist press, watched by most all democrats and some independents, merely refuses to report it and it quietly goes away as never having existed at all. Republicans and independent conservatives, who wouldn't have voted for him anyway, hear about it from conservative media and no minds are changed. Everyone else? Never hear about it to begin with. "Did you hear what Joe Biden supposedly said?" "No." "Neither did I."

The establishment narrative on Joe Biden is, to put it mildly, malarkey. Gropey J actually is everything the liberals accuse Donald Trump of being – bizarre, vulgar, dumb, corrupt, incompetent, and utterly unfit to be president. But yet the Creepy Veepy is so much more. In the last month, this totally not-senile, not-at-all-weird guy has assembled a track record of freaky behavior that would put mid-eighties Crispin Glover to shame. Let’s review… Corn Pop is old news. Biden’s latest rambling onion-on-the-belt monologue was something about little kids at a pool rubbing his leg hair or something – it’s so random I’m not even linking to it.

Live by the identity-politics sword, die by the identity-politics sword. The Democrats are learning that the hard way. With Sen. Kamala Harris of California having pulled out of the party’s 2020 presidential field last week, Democrats are wringing their hands and agonizing at the very real prospect that all of the participants in their upcoming candidates’ debate, next week in Los Angeles, will be — horror of horrors!— monochromatic. That is to say, only caucasians. Unless former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, who is Hispanic, and/or Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, who is black, can meet by 11:59 p.m. Thursday, the polling and fundraising thresholds required to qualify

One of my all-time favorite sporting moments concerns a soccer match in Thailand between Satri Angthong and Bangkok Sports Club. The match, in 2017, had gone to a penalty shoot-out, and extraordinarily the score had reached 19-19 when a Bangkok player hit the crossbar with a thunderous shot. Satri’s goalkeeper charged forwards to his teammates waiting on the half-way line, punching the air and leaping like a demented dolphin in wild jubilation as his opponent sank his hands to his knees in abject despair. But the ball, which had soared off the crossbar into the stratosphere, crashed to the ground again and spun viciously in the direction of the goal. The goalkeeper suddenly realized

The Democrats have filed Articles of Impeachment. No one is surprised, because impeachment has been the goal for the radical Left and others who dislike the president since before his election. Impeachment of a president is a solemn undertaking. It will inevitably, as Alexander Hamilton noted in Federalist No. 65, veer toward political factions. Yet it is important that our Founders intentionally did not embrace “recalls” or “votes of no confidence.” Rather, our system demands from Congress evidence of high crimes and misdemeanors and contemplates a level of behavior commensurate with the chaos inflicted on the republic by potential removal of a president.

A sprawling federal investigation into lobbying, patronage and alleged corruption threatens to upend Illinois’s powerful Democratic machine as agents raid offices and interrogate witnesses from Chicago to Springfield. Federal agents have conducted searches of at least nine homes and offices in connection to a probe of Commonwealth Edison, the state’s largest utility, and the political operation run by state House Speaker Mike Madigan, the most powerful Democrat in Illinois. Those agents have been asking questions about Madigan, his associates and his political operation, according to two people who have sat for interviews with law enforcement.

Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States. The facts of both dramas were clear to objective viewers: In the one instance, there’s conclusive and surprisingly consistent evidence that President Trump pushed Ukraine to concoct dirt on a domestic political rival to affect the 2020 presidential election, and in the other, Justice Department

TIME magazine will name the anonymous federal employee whose whistleblower report set off President Donald Trump’s impending impeachment its 2019 Person of the Year, the Washington Free Beacon has learned. The whistleblower himself never emerged publicly to tell his story, and the publication will also honor the civil servants who came forward to testify before Congress about the events described in his report. That report centered on a July 25 phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. It charged that Trump used "the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election."

Attorney General William Barr sat for an extended interview with NBC’s Pete Williams to discuss the findings in the Department of Justice Inspector General report released yesterday afternoon. NBC has cut the thing up in a couple of stories, but it has also posted the whole thing on YouTube (24-minute video below). Barr is familiar with the evidence gathered so far; he knows what he’s talking about. He understands that what we have staring us in the face is an unprecedented political scandal. He tentatively anticipates the criminal investigation reaching “a watershed” by late spring or early summer. I urge interested readers

James Rosen, a great reporter, asked Nancy Pelosi at a press conference last week why she hates the duly elected president of the United States. In her response, Pelosi detoured into another dimension, denying that she hates Donald Trump. “As a Catholic,” she lectured, “I resent your using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone.” “My goodness!,” I thought to myself. “How utterly frustrated, bemused — even furious — sincerely devout Catholics must feel listening to this cheap politician, who represents billionaires in a district teeming with homeless, cloaking her hatred for President Trump in Catholic fabric!”

The New York State attorney general has issued a new subpoena to the National Rifle Association, deepening her eight-month investigation and providing fresh clues about where it is headed, according to people with knowledge of the document. The subpoena, which was described to The New York Times, was issued last week and covers at least four areas, including campaign finance, payments made to board members and tax compliance. Because the N.R.A. is chartered in New York and the office of the attorney general, Letitia James, has a range of enforcement options, the investigation has alarmed N.R.A. officials already grappling with infighting and litigation.

As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors. I respect the office and understand just how tough the job can be. But recently, Attorney General William P. Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office. Last month, at a Federalist Society event, the attorney general delivered an ode to essentially unbridled executive power, dismissing the authority of the legislative and judicial branches — and the checks

Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas issued the block in response to a lawsuit by El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights."The President's emergency proclamation was a blatant attempt to grab power from Congress.

In a 23-page court filing, Page's attorneys spell out how on December 12, 2017, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions' spokeswoman invited reporters to the Department of Justice's headquarters after normal business hours and showed them the texts. This release led to years of 'demeaning' tweets from President Trump, forced Page into therapy and left her looking for work, the lawsuit said.

Senate Republicans are weighing a speedy impeachment trial that could include no witnesses for President Trump’s legal team or for House Democrats. The discussions come as the House is moving forward with articles of impeachment against Trump, teeing up a trial in the Senate that would start in January. The White House has indicated publicly that it has a wish list of potential witnesses, including House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Hunter Biden and the whistleblower who sparked the impeachment inquiry. But Republican senators, including Trump allies and members of leadership, appear reluctant to drag themselves through a drawn-out trial with messy procedural votes when the outcome appears pre-baked.
