Will Obama let the Democratic Party sink
in the quicksand of socialism?

Original Article

For someone as loquacious as Barack Obama, the current Democratic primary race must be almost painful to endure. The ex-president has said he would refrain from sticking his nose into likely the largest intramural party competition in recent memory, featuring two dozen candidates at one point. His former vice presidential partner, Joe Biden, was the longtime front-runner who faded and then

Obama and his husband Michelle have that brand new mansion on Martha's Vineyard so... I don't think he cares too much. They got theirs... just like in REAL Socialist countries.

I assumed that was going to be a done deal when he got himself elected in ‘08. By 2016, it was “fait accompli.” The Dem Party succeeded in irreversibly branding itself as far leftist as I have ever seen in my seventy plus decades. It’s just a few tweaks to full-blown communism since Bolshevik Bernie had made such amazing headway amongst the Kool-aid proletariat this election cycle. It’s really going to be a mess this time, worse than the Chicago Riots in ‘68.

There is no fight quite like a fight between socialists over the spoils to be had by plundering capitalists. Does WWII ring a bell? Never mistake the resistance by a socialist against another as having a differing political position. It's when they both know they are in competition for the same prize that all hell breaks loose. To this day the average idiot sees Hitler and Stalin as opposite ends of the political spectrum when in fact they were conjoined twins fighting over the same liver. Do not mistake the democrat establishment's rally to stop Sanders as stopping socialism. They don't want the outsider to seize the power and spoils of totalitarian socialist rule. Socialist intramural squabbles have been among the bloodiest in history.

Obama’s game is to select Biden’s Vice-President who will become President after Biden rides off to a five star Florida rest home. Chances are that Obama pick will be a very liberal minority person who has not recently been on the national political scene and who could not get elected President in his or her own rite. In return Obama will endorse Biden. As the incumbent President that Obama pick would then be eligible to run for re-election in 2024 and 2028. But first Biden has to defeat Trump in the general election.

American elections, especially presidential ones, are specifically designed to create deep divisions across society, camps labeled Us and Them. You may have noticed this in the tumultuous 2016 upset shockwave that has endured ever since. In this cycle, the election featured two dozen Democrats and a lone Republican who out-talked and out-tweeted them all. In terms of the work put into campaigning, this cycle has been no contest. The 74-year-old Donald Trump has campaigned basically nonstop since the convention in late August.

To put it mildly, 2020 has been one weird year. And these presidential campaigns are no exception. A most striking difference in the current presidential campaigns of President Donald Trump and Joe Biden is the stark contrast in the efforts put forth by these two men in their 70s.

Americans cannot agree on much these days, but one source of unanimity is that aging is better than the alternative. However, one of the most striking yet less-noticed facts of contemporary politics is that Americans have also shown a striking affinity for selecting — and keeping — old people in political office. Really old people. [Snip] The median age of all Americans is 38.2 years, less than half Joe Biden’s. The coincidental advanced ages of the nation’s current political leaders have raised all kinds of serious new questions, including ideological rigidity, stale policies and mental and physical

In theory, deploying and/or withdrawing U.S. military forces abroad is all about this country’s national security. In practice, however, politics is always close by. And in this election year, both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are taking credit for troop decisions. Biden’s campaign claim that he was in charge of withdrawing 150,000 U.S. service members from Iraq in 2011 is what Mark Twain would call “a stretcher.” Trump made reducing foreign military involvements a major

Joe Biden would be 78 years old by Inauguration Day in January, seven years beyond the average lifespan of a male born in 1942. He had two brain aneurysms in the 1980s.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
