and fall of 'frontrunner' Joe Biden

Lost in the shuffle of the Democrats' app fiasco in Iowa, the rubber-room swan song of House impeachment manager Adam Schiff, and the childish paper-ripping tantrum of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the candidacy of "frontrunner" Joe Biden looks headed for the dumpster. To the extent known from the Iowa caucus ballots counted, Biden is in fourth place, winning just 15% of the caucus count, trailing Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, and just barely ahead of Amy Klobuchar. Unlike those first three, he gets no delegates for his efforts. He's also out of money. It's simply a disaster for Biden.

Impeachment did in Biden, not Trump.

Recently, did I hear someone say that Nancy Pelosi was a brilliant Strategist? She's been a wrecking ball on the Democrat party and Joe Biden. Impeachment boomeranged on their favorite guy.

It didn't help his cause that he consistently looked old, tired, and clueless while out on the stump. It inspired no one to believe that he could seriously take on The Donald. Hence, the Rats are desperately seeking a viable candidate. Good luck finding one!

The House managers, pathetic as they were, mentioned Old Jo, Robert (His real first name, not Hunter)and Burisma, 400 times at the Senate trial. If the intent of the House was to cleverly smear the Bidens with faint praise, they were successful. old Jo has nowhere to go, except home to Delaware, where he can try to keep tabs on his adulterous wife, and count the family's ill-gotten gains. I doubt the Ukrainian oligarchs or the Chinese government will send any more money to the Bidens. the foreign fountains of cash will shut down, permanently.

None of them have caught fire. Bunny is too old and too crazy. Quid Pro Joe is too old and too corrupt and has more baggage than Greyhound. Pint Sized Mayor Pettie has a lifestyle that Americans are not going to embrace. Princess Liealota is totally despicable. So that opens the door for Mittens to switch parties and claim he will dethrone Le Grande Orange.

Biden was somehow set up for this debacle. His career was over. He had zero both coming and now going. It would be interesting to know who convinced him to enter into this foolishness and what was promised him.

Oh darn. I wanted to see Joe challenge Trump to a pushup contest during the national election debates. Then they could have dropped a butterfly net over Joe and lead him away. Guess it will be Comrade Bernie. But I'm puzzled. We have spent 4 years investigating Trump for Russian collusion that never happened. Now the dems will have a candidate that would be happy to collude with Russia. There seems to be a bit of cognitive dissonance going on amongst the dems. Of course Bernie is only a "kinda" dem since he was an Independent as a Senator and only agreed to run as a dem as his campaign started.

The Facts About Trump That

The Democrats didn’t like President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address because he highlighted data, such as the strong economy and record employment under his watch, they’d rather voters didn’t know. But those points were just a start. There’s much more about Trump that his opponents want to hide from the public. The Democrats have stayed true to their talking points, calling Trump a “monster,” a “white supremacist,” and a “dictator” at every opportunity. While campaigning in New Hampshire, Joe Biden said the president “doesn’t have a shred of decency in him.” Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg

In contrast to the U.S. citizens who may have been exposed to the coronavirus, transported by the U.S. from China to U.S. military bases in California, willingly coming to isolation units and then being given humane care to ensure recovery, (and speaking gratefully for it) China is conducting mass arrests of anyone exposed to the coronavirus and dragging them to camps.

At a time when Confederate monuments are being pulled down, it would make sense to think that the military geniuses who defeated the real live Confederates might in conversity be honored, right? Not in an age of idiocy. So, the 200th birthday of General William T. Sherman, destroyer of Atlanta and much of the South across the Civil War, the master strategist who, alongside U.S. Grant. led the Union forces to victory, goes virtually unnoted. It shows that the Confederate statue pulldown isn't really about winners or losers.

Because the American electorate is rather evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, turnout becomes the key to electoral success in November. While a lot can happen in nine months, there are five factors that I see discouraging Democrat turnout and helping the GOP. The Biden family scandals Thanks to Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, and the impeachment lynch mob, the lid has been blown off the Biden family's practice of trading on the patriarch's position to enrich themselves.

The Iowa caucus is still a mess, a bad enough one that Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has called for a "recanvass" of the entire operation. No results, and more to the point, no believable explanation, either. The explanations have shifted so many times it's now come down to the all-purpose one: Blaming Trump. According to Fox News: Workers manning the phones in Iowa after the state's disastrous caucus on Monday reportedly claim that President Trump backers flooded the hotline number for precinct chairs that led to even more confusion and disarray.

If Democrats harbored no real belief that President Donald Trump would be removed via the impeachment process thanks to a Republican Senate majority, they surely hoped that the process would at least put a dent in the commander in chief’s popularity. Yet the latest numbers indicate that not only has the Senate trial had the opposite effect, it has also bolstered Trump to an all-time high approval rating. According to the latest survey released by Gallup, 49 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. The poll was taken from Jan. 16-Jan. 29 — which covers much of the period during the trial.

Against the violent talk and now actual violence coming out of the Bernie Sanders campaign for president, Bernie's soaring in the polls anyway. He's doing so because unlike pretty much any Democrat except his probable nearest rival, Michael Bloomberg, he's actually talking about the economy, something TeamTrump has held a monopoly on. Problem is, he's promising economic paradise, a full creation of 20 million jobs. Via Nate Silver, here's one of his ads that ran in California: Sanders says he's going to create 20 million jobs? Through state intervention or socialist central planning, presumably? Better living through socialism? Give us a break. For starters, been there done that. Way back in 2008,

LONDON - A Brexit supporter burned a European Union flag beside Downing Street in central London on Friday as others jeered at pro-EU demonstrators in the final hours before the United Kingdom is due to leave the bloc. About 200-300 pro-European Union supporters were mocked by pro-Brexit supporters as they walked from Downing Street to the office of the European Commission in London. Police formed a line to keep the two groups apart. The pro-Brexit supporters were singing “shame on you, shame on you”, “losers, losers” and “bye, bye EU” to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.

Instead, he says it will likely go to one of the progressive candidates on the roster.

On the removal of Sondland and Vindman 35 replies

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire -- For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election-night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd -- a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn't want the audience to see bad news. There was no warm-up speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare. She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg "had strong nights."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday called on the nation’s 74 federal inspectors general (IGs) to protect whistleblowers from retaliation as President Donald Trump began purging Obama-era holdovers and other officials from his National Security Council (NSC). IGs are internal government watchdogs who are expected to operate independently of political leadership in government. Schumer’s call on Monday came in the wake of Trump’s decision last Friday to remove and reassign Lt. Col. Alex Vindman, a Ukraine expert on the NSC who testified in the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment probe. Last Friday, Trump also fired the NSC staffer’s twin brother — Lt. Col. Yevgeny Vindman —

Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China. “With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said
