Biden Jokingly Calls Student ‘Lying Dog-Faced
Pony Soldier’ At New Hampshire Event

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 2/9/2020 3:02:10 PM

Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to jokingly insult a New Hampshire student Sunday, calling her a “lying dog-faced pony soldier” at a Hampton Beach event. Biden was reportedly responding to a question about his campaign’s lackluster performance in the Iowa caucuses and how he planned to forge a path forward, especially if he did not do well in New Hampshire’s primary.(Snip) “A young woman asks Biden ‘How do you explain the performance in Iowa and why should the voters believe that you can win a national election?’ Biden’s response: ‘You ever been to a caucus?’ Woman says yes. Biden: ‘No you haven’t. You’re a lying dog-faced pony soldier,’”

Classy.

According to some Twitter people he is mixing together two different phrases from the WWII era. Not sure how that popped into his brain when discussing the IA caucus.

Typical liberal MO. When asked a question you don't like, instead of answering the question, insult the person who asked it.

The willingness to go "Ad Hom" is an important part of the "Progressive" gambit and the Marxist personality. Pushy, manipulative, sociopathic types rely on distraction and diversion when faced with probative questions. "Your question makes me feel bad so (in fairness) I get to hurt you." Bitch-craft.

What the hell does that mean? “Pony Soldier” was what plains Indians called the U.S. Cavalry. “Dogface Soldier” was a WWII description for Army infantry. Neither of these terms makes any sense in describing a skeptical millenial college-age Democrat voter. Biden is showing signs of dementia. I can’t wait for him to start babbling nonsense in public and wandering off the stage to look for ice cream.

He's used the same line before, back in 2018: “As my brother, who loves to use lines from movies, a John Wayne movie, there’s a good line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where the Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says ‘this is a lying dog-faced pony soldier,'” Biden rambled. https://thefederalistpapers.org/us/video-biden-suggests-gop-lawmaker-get-beat?fbclid=IwAR3elGQEuJQBy0W0tVDo2_d6tVnKWFtIhrnbOpFZWocwugvK42XawsKucLA

Joking? Ol' Idiot Joe is said to be "joking" whenever he makes some lunatic, irrational, off-the-wall comment. He has a damaged brain from both surgeries and age, and is no longer capable of consistent linear, rational thought processes. There are serious questions if he was EVER capable of that sort of thought.

This is how many dementia sufferers excuse away their mistakes when they realize they have made one... they say they were joking. My mom did it. My sister-in-law is doing it. Biden and Pelosi BOTH are showing signs of dementia. Pelosi's judgment is shot. Were she sane she would never have torn up Trump's speech. Biden and Pelosi are also both speaking at times in 'word salad' in which words and sentences are truncated and once-vital neural connections in the brain have been re-routed to a somewhat similar, but not correct word. It was said that one of the first signs of Ronald Reagan's Alzheimer's was when he pointed to a row of books on a shelf and called them 'trees'. His brain took the object - book - and since they are made of paper, and paper is made from trees... that was the word that he used. Watch for it. You will see it more and more with both Biden and Pelosi.

I watched some Aussie Sky News reporting on a press conference Nancy held after the SOTU. The questioner asked her how she felt when the President introduced Rush. She babbled on about thinking he was going to award a medal to John Lewis. One of the Aussies on the panel said he couldn't understand ANYTHING she was trying to say. The woman on the panel agreed but also stated that was the most lucid that Nancy sounded in quite a long time. So, it's not just us who think she's bonkers. Needless to say I enjoyed that YouTube video!! They were not kind to her.

The question was pertinent, a good one. One would think that he and his staff would have had serious discussions on the topic and that he would be expecting such a question. The fact that he has no answer is interesting. His response fits a pattern of a mean old man who will not be able to withstand the rigors of the office. Get him to the nursing home.

Did Biden expect the girl to have any idea what he was saying? She probably doesn't even know who John Wayne was, let alone recognize lines from any of his movies. If she was 'progressive' millennial, she would never hear about him, because rumors that he was ray-cis caused them to 'cancel' him a couple of years ago. Isn't New Hamster about the point in the primaries when he has usually dropped out of contention, anyway? Maybe his subconscious is starting to get twitchy about him not having withdrawn yet; or maybe he's just trying to force his numbers down a little more to give him the excuse for quitting.

Prosecutors in charge of the federal case against Roger Stone may have lied to the Department of Justice about their lengthy prison sentence recommendation for Stone, according to a new report. Fox News reported earlier today that DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes. “The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” the DOJ official

Former "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury in Chicago after a special prosecutor re-investigated allegations he bogusly reported being the victim of a January 2019 hate-crime attack, officials said. Smollett, 37, was indicted on six counts related to making four separate false reports to Chicago Police Department officers, claiming he was the victim of a hate crime while "knowing he was not the victim of a crime," special prosecutor Dan Webb said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon. Webb was appointed by a Cook County judge to continue looking into the false allegations after the Cook County State’s Attorney Office dropped all charges against the actor.

Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes, one of the media’s favorite Donald Trump antagonists, took to Twitter this weekend to pen a transcendently nonsensical thread comparing the firing of a handful of bureaucrats to the rounding up of political undesirables in the lead-up to the Holocaust. It’s wouldn’t be a huge deal, except that this kind of hysterical reaction has now been normalized in American discourse, illustrating that once-rational people have either lost all sense of history or are willing to belittle the past for short-term political gain.

President Donald Trump had an unlikely ally in his fight against an anti-corruption lawsuit from congressional Democrats — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is leading a coalition of 186 House members and 29 senators alleging the president has unlawfully profited from foreign patronage at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in violation of an ethics provision in the Constitution called the foreign emoluments clause. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit dismissed the lawsuit on Feb. 7 on technical grounds, relying in part on a 2019 Ginsburg opinion.

The victory by President Trump and his team over the impeachment-pursuing Democrats was complete, and devastating. However, missing from the celebratory activities last week was one of Trump’s strongest, most consistent, and most loyal supporters – Roger Stone. Stone remains silenced under a federal court gag order that prevents him from publicly discussing anything about his conviction last November, even as he awaits sentencing for up to 25 years on February 20th. His case has been described as the last “loose end remaining from the Mueller investigation.” More accurately, it is the “last travesty of the Mueller investigation.”

Text messages reveal the FBI considered using a personal connection between an FBI employee and a member of Vice President Mike Pence’s staff to further its controversial probe into unsubstantiated and ultimately discredited allegations of collusion between Russia and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The text messages in question were exchanges between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, the infamous texting duo who were previously reportedly romantically involved. The detail was buried in a three-sentence footnote, footnote 480, on page 344 of the Justice Department’s previously released 476-page Inspector General report on the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane.

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."
