Joe Biden: Electability Can Be A Bitch

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 2/15/2020 11:24:13 AM

Joe Biden: Folks, I just came here from the Nevada caucuses, a few hours before the votes were counted, and I am really glad to be with you here, in the Carolinas, and not over there. Which Carolina is this, by the way? North or South? Oh, right. As I was saying, I am glad to be here, in South Carolina. What’s the name of the town we’re in? Does anyone know? Oh, right. Orangeburg. What a weird name for a town . . . But it’s OK, I am used to meeting people from all kinds of towns with weird names. No joke!

This is satire. But it is SO Joe...

This is not satire. In the beginning of it it was so right on sounding like the stooge Joe Biden. Bardmesser nailed the idiot perfectly.

You have to figure that if the man were to be elected that he could easily mistake Iraq for Iran and bomb the wrong country! The dude should be home packing and getting ready for a one way trip to some five star Florida rest home.

Ukrainian President Zelensky Calls
Impeachment A TV Soap Opera

In a wide-ranging interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky referred to the impeachment of President Donald Trump as a television series, specifically citing the soap operas “Santa Barbara” and “Dallas.” Throwing cold water on what Democrats alleged to be a pressure campaign on Zelensky and his government, the Ukrainian president also said he looks forward to his next conversation with Trump and hopes to visit the White House. Zelensky did bristle when asked about corruption in Ukraine, asking President Trump to stop referring to his country as one of the most corrupt in the world. But he did acknowledge that in the past, Ukraine has suffered under great

David Brooks recently wrote a piece with the provocative headline “The nuclear family was a mistake.” The article is thoughtful, and it hits on many important points. The central argument is that our culture has weakened the ties of extended families and neighborhoods.(Snip) It’s also true of our retreat from marriage.(Snip) Michael Bloomberg can live his life however he wants. (I wish he would extend that same liberty to the rest of us.) But we in the media ought not celebrate his 20-year relationship with his lady-friend whom he won’t marry. (Snip) Their nonmarital relationship supposedly shows she is “unfettered.” It is “a testament to … her independence.”

It’s former White House chief of staff John Kelly’s turn to be the media’s new hero for a moment after he said some mildly critical things about President Trump. But I’m really confused about the part of his recent speech to some college students that’s getting the most play on cable news because it suggests Kelly has either a false recollection of events or simply doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Kelly, according to the Atlantic, said in his speech that former National Security Council aide Alexander Vindman did the right thing when he reported having overheard an “illegal order” in the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky,

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been the recipient of outrageous attacks from Democrats and their supporters since early 2017. This was richly detailed in Lee Smith’s 2019 book, The Plot Against the President: The True Story of How Congressman Devin Nunes Uncovered the Biggest Political Scandal in U.S. History. (Snip) and now he is in the process of getting his pound of flesh from the perpetrators. That includes making some startling predictions about how Mueller’s “dirty team” – as Nunes puts it – will be exposed in the weeks ahead, with the kerfuffle surrounding Roger Stone’s sentencing memo being just the start of that process.

The latest polling leaves no doubt Joe Biden was severely damaged by an impeachment process that was supposed to ruin President Trump. Obviously, the far-left Politico will never frame its own Morning Consult poll in that way, but that is definitely the takeaway to anyone interested in the facts. Here are the bottom-line numbers. A majority of “52 percent of voters believe it was inappropriate for the former vice president’s son, Hunter Biden, to take the job with the firm Burisma.” Only 18 percent said it was appropriate. An even bigger majority of 57 percent describe it as a legitimate scandal, while only 19 percent agree with the fake news media that

There are three widely proclaimed verities now bandied about in the aftermath of the Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday.(Snip)I think all three of these deductions are mistaken.(Snip)The great question is whether Amy Klobuchar, whose share of the vote jumped by more than 50 percent in New Hampshire from Iowa the week before, can keep rising before Super Tuesday. The senator from Minnesota is the candidate who, if she could get her story out widely and quickly enough, the Democratic establishment and moderate rank and file would prefer to employ to stop Sanders. And if Klobuchar became a contender, she would be much more acceptable to Sanders and his

A month before the 2016 presidential election, the FBI met Christopher Steele in Rome and apparently unlawfully shared with the foreign opposition researcher some of the bureau’s most closely held secrets, according to unpublicized disclosures in the recent Justice Department Inspector General report on abuses of federal surveillance powers. What’s more, Steele, the former British spy who compiled the “dossier” of conspiracy theories for the Hillary Clinton campaign, was promised $15,000 to attend the briefing by FBI agents eager to maintain his cooperation in their Trump-Russia collusion investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane. That investigation was so closely guarded that only a handful of top officials and agents at the FBI were allowed

The federal prosecutor leading the probe into the 2016 Trump-Russia investigation might be pursuing a basis to accuse former US intelligence officials who served under former President Barack Obama of hiding intelligence about Russia's election interference, according to The New York Times. (Snip) John Durham, the US attorney tapped by Attorney General William Barr to look into the investigators, is questioning past disputes between different US intelligence agencies' analysts over sharing highly sensitive information regarding Russia's scheme to meddle in the 2016 US election. Durham and his team of investigators have looked at emails and interviewed a small group of intelligence analysts from several US agencies, including the CIA, FBI and National

Washington- Attorney General William Barr is ordering a re-examination of several high-profile cases, including that of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, US officials briefed on the matter say, in a move that could bring fresh scrutiny of the political motives behind actions at the Justice Department. US Attorney Jeffrey Jensen of St. Louis has been tasked with taking a second look at some aspects of the sensitive cases, one of the officials said. It was not clear which other cases were under review, and what form the reviews had taken.

There was once a time, not that long ago, when the mainstream left was highly critical of the CIA, and scrutiny of dubious claims by U.S. intelligence was a common occurrence. Of course all of that changed when those same intelligence agencies were weaponized to target a political enemy that was also the enemy of the left, namely Donald Trump. (Snip)Using information from U.K. media, and looking closer at yesterday’s New York Times report about investigations of the CIA, in this outline we will explain where corrupt U.S. and U.K. interests merge; what specific action was taken, & why the mortar is crumbling.

Pete Buttigieg, the openly gay former mayor of South Bend, Ind., a small town of just over 100,000 people, was asked during an appearance Sunday on CNN to respond to a remark from Rush Limbaugh about how Americans may view his homosexuality. Taking the high road, the 38-year-old 2020 Democratic candidate avoided any focus on him kissing his husband on stage at campaign events to say he will not take family values lectures from Limbaugh. “I love my husband, I am faithful to my husband,” Buttigieg said, when asked by CNN anchor Dana Bash. “On stage, we usually just go for a hug, but I love him very much —

The Justice Department announced Friday that it is closing its investigation of Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s former deputy director, over his false statements to investigators probing an unauthorized leak that McCabe had orchestrated. McCabe was fired in March 2018, shortly after a blistering Justice Department inspector general (IG) report concluded that he repeatedly and blatantly lied — or, as the Bureau lexicon puts it, “lacked candor” — when questioned, including under oath. Why not indict McCabe on felony false-statements charges? That is the question being pressed by incensed Trump supporters. After all, the constitutional guarantee of equal justice under the law is supposed to mean

Oracle founder and CTO Larry Ellison‘s decision to throw a fundraiser for President Donald Trump has apparently angered some of his employees. So much so that they have allegedly set up a Change.org petition demanding he cancel the Feb. 19 event and have asked other Oracle employees to sign. The petition, first reported by Vox, launched on Friday and so far has over 1,000 signatures from alleged employees. (The computer technology company employs around 136,000 people worldwide). It asks company leadership to “[stand] up against Ellison’s damaging association with the Trump campaign” and says his support of Trump “does not

A bill that would make Washington, D.C., the 51st U.S. state was approved by a Democratic-led House committee last week, setting the stage for a vote by the full chamber in the near future. If it passes, as expected, it will be the first time the campaign to bestow statehood on the nation’s capital has been endorsed by one of the chambers of Congress. Republicans in the Senate are expected to swiftly reject the bill, however, continuing a legacy of partisan sparring over the District of Columbia that has been going on for more than two centuries.

In an extraordinary ruling, a state supreme court judge has ordered the developers of a nearly completed 668-foot block of flats in New York to remove as many as 20 or more floors from the top of the building. The decision is a major victory for community groups who opposed the project on the grounds that the developers used a zoning loophole to create the tallest building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. A lawyer representing the project said the developers would appeal the decision. Justice W Franc Perry ordered that the Department of Buildings revoke the building permit for the tower at 200 Amsterdam Avenue
