While a successful politician in many ways, Joe Biden’s attempts to become president are marked by quite a severe flaw – he cannot enter a town hall without saying something stupid. What would American Democracy be without Joe Biden garlanding astonished voters with insults and imprecations of every kind? God bless that man. (Snip)Indeed, it was not until I went into the town halls of America and heard Joe Biden, aflame with righteousness, describe a young woman as a ‘lying, dog-faced pony soldier’ did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she allows crazy old men to talk nonsense

We used to allow the crazies to rant from the top of a soapbox on the village green. Now the Dems collect them up and put the behind podiums.

A very amusing column, for its compact selection of Biden’s non mots, and not least of all for the college-vouching word “deracinate” toward the end.

If I didn't hate Quid Pro Joe I might feel sorry for him. But I remember the confirmation hearings for Judges Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas where he was a skunk. As people age from middle age to old goat they pass through stages. One stage is people take away your car keys. The next stage is they take away the remote control for the tv. Slo Joe is between those two. Every politician is coached by his/her handlers to stay on topic and only repeat your talking points no matter what type of question you are asked. Plugs drifts off and talks about stuff like how little kids marvel at his leg hairs. Averadachi a roma.

Joe can't fill anything bigger than a town hall so I would imagine that he will continue using those as long as he can find his way to the podium.

Good idea; it would give him something to do, keep him off the street. And, he could stand at the door and take up Free Will offerings, like other TV preachers. He might even take in enough money for a Big Mac.

Remember after the 2000 election? Democrats were baffled that the voters hadn’t given Al Gore a third Clinton term in the midst of a good economy. Never mind that President Bill Clinton never won a majority of the vote and had been impeached for covering up his defiling of a young intern in the Oval Office. To the credit of those old Democrats, at least they were slightly capable of self-awareness. This crowd today would march right down the throat of a flaming volcano if somebody told them that doing so would hurt President Trump. After months of litigating hanging chads in Florida, those old Democrats of yore wondered

The Virginia State Senate Judiciary Committee sank the hopes of Governor Ralph Northam’s bill to expand the definition of “assault weapons,” in a bit of a surprise. Earlier this month, the narrowly divided Virginia House of Delegates passed the bill, 51-48. Democrats in the Senate were less enthusiastic, and Monday morning, Committee chairman John Edwards, Democrats Chap Petersen, Creigh Deeds, Scott Surovell, and all committee Republicans voted to send the bill to the Virginia Crime Commission for further study, meaning it will not be passed in this session. The National Rifle Association is pleased: “This is a victory for honest, hard-working Virginians who shared their support

In this post, I noted that the Culinary Workers Union, a big player in Nevada Democratic politics, is attacking Bernie Sanders over his “Medicare for All” proposal. I figured that these attacks would harm Sanders’s Nevada caucuses campaign. However, the Union hasn’t endorsed another candidate. Thus, to the extent that its attacks on Sanders dissuade members from supporting the Vermont socialist, these members are likely to split their vote among other candidates, thereby decreasing the harm to Sanders. Polling in Nevada seems to confirm this analysis. Sanders leads, but his lead isn’t as large as it likely would have been had the Culinary Workers Union not blasted him on health insurance.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell cited a record 11-year expansion, an economy “resilient to the global headwinds,” “near half-century lows for more than a year” regarding unemployment, and how “GDP rose at a moderate rate over the second half of last year” in his appearances before Congress last week. But his more oblique warnings about what should happen if a recession occurs came as the most interesting part of his words to the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee. He essentially told Congress that economic gimmickry in sunny financial times leaves policymakers with few tools to combat a recession once the clouds roll into town.

NEW YORK — As Mike Bloomberg celebrated his 48th birthday in 1990, a top aide at the company he founded presented him with a booklet of profane, sexist quotes she attributed to him. A good salesperson is like a man who tries to pick up women at a bar by saying, “Do you want to f---? He gets turned down a lot — but he gets f----- a lot, too!” Bloomberg was quoted in the booklet as saying. Bloomberg also allegedly said that his company’s financial information computers “will do everything, including give you [oral sex]. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”

Things are getting testy out in Nevada as we crash headlong toward caucus day. And with Joe Biden seeing his previous lead in the polls slipping away to Bernie Sanders, he has to find a way to draw a distinction and deflate some of the Democratic Socialist’s momentum. That means breaking out the oppo folder and finding some of Bernie’s old votes to throw in his face. This weekend Uncle Joe reached all the way back to 2005 when Sanders was still in the House of Representatives, bringing up his vote in favor of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA).

Instability in Mexico and Latin America drove a wave of migrant workers to send a record amount of remittances to their home countries in 2019. Mexico’s Central Bank reported that Mexican migrants working overseas sent home a record-high $36 billion in remittances in 2019, a 7 percent increase from 2018. According to a study from the Inter-American Dialogue, between 2016 and 2017, remittances to Mexico increased by 12 percent, a sharp rise from previous years. States with the largest population of Mexican-born immigrants rank highest in remittance transfers. The states with the highest transfers include California ($8.84 billion), Texas ($4.3 billion), Illinois ($1.4 billion), New York ($1.8 billion),

This kid better not expect this to happen every time she goes to the grocery store. A mom says that her young daughter made an amazing discovery while out on a shopping trip. Apparently, a charitable stranger left behind a generous surprise just sitting on one of the store’s shelves. Danica Kenny was shopping at Raley’s Supermarket in Sacramento, Calif., when her 6-year-old daughter found a note just sitting on a shelf, Fox 8 reports. According to her, tucked inside the folded piece of paper was a hundred dollar bill. The note reportedly read, “Whoever finds this, I love you.”

She was Juror No. 1261, and her examination by the federal court and counsel before the trial was anything but notable. And that is precisely the problem. Juror 1261, we now know, was Tomeka Hart. Her identity would have remained publicly unknown except for a public statement she made after the Department of Justice (DOJ) rescinded its initial sentencing recommendation for Trump confidant Roger Stone. In the midst of the firestorm of allegations of political interference, Hart disclosed that she was the foreperson on the Stone jury and gave a full-throated defense of the trial prosecutors: “It pains me to see the DOJ

Though we’re in the early stages of the 2020 campaign cycle, voters have already delivered a verdict on one thing: They are seeking a candidate that stands for something. On the Republican side, President Trump has gained full control of a party that once viewed him with suspicion — drawing only token opposition in the primaries. As president, he has mostly pursued the type of policies — a mix of traditional Republicanism with more populist stances on immigration and trade — that he campaigned on. And he has maintained the same smash mouth political style. Whether they like him or are repulsed by him,

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.

The move filed in Delaware bankruptcy court halts the hundreds of lawsuits the BSA is facing that allege sexual misconduct by people within the 110-year-old organization over the years. Sexual abuse settlements had reportedly strained the Boy Scouts' finances, with states passing laws last year so victims from long-ago abuse can sue for damages.

Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a rare political jab at his successor in a tweet Monday that cast aspersions on President Trump's claims that he deserves credit for recent economic gains, a key reelection platform for the 45th president. "Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history," Obama said, including with the tweet a picture of his signature on the 2009 stimulus package.

And the man who was ousted early from the Republican primaries of 2016 gave a decidedly mixed review of the first term of President Donald Trump, who bruised him often on the campaign trail. Bush spoke Monday to an audience of several hundred investors in Hollywood at a conference sponsored by the financial firm Noble Capital Markets of Boca Raton.
