Joe Biden: A 'centrist' moves further left

Original Article

Posted By: Toledo, 3/17/2020 11:14:56 AM

It's an indisputable fact that the Democratic Party has moved left in recent years. Now, the party is about to choose a standard-bearer, in the person of former Vice President Joe Biden, and what has become clear is that Biden has not only shifted left with his party over the years, he has taken significant leftward steps in recent weeks. Three examples. First, for years, Biden has defended the Obama administration's record on deportations against those on the left who criticized President Barack Obama as the "deporter in chief." Then came last month's Nevada caucuses.

Biden has sloshed around all over every issue you care to mention, generally being flat wrong in his immediate judgment, followed by taking bogus credit for taking the right side after the fact. He has no discernible core beliefs.

"Joe Biden Moves" Yes, he moves depending on the prevailing political winds. Whatever is the popular side or view. He cannot be trusted to take his prescribed medications.

I hope the Dems go ahead and put Biden at the top of their ticket. That'll give the rest of us something at which to laugh and point as we go about the business of reelecting President Trump.

Isn't it amazing how these pols can turn on a dime, one hundred and eighty degrees, on an issue and no one bats an eye? And if they ARE questioned about it they simply say "I was wrong before," and that explanation is readily accepted by the media and we call can just move on. Unless you happen to be a Republican.

Around here, when a senior citizen wanders away from home and gets lost, they issue a Silver Alert which buzzes everyone's cellphones to alert them to search for the missing person. I would propose that they immediately do this for old Joe so that he can be returned safely to his home.

Joe, like many other Democrats, only sounded like a moderate on some key issues, until they didn't have to pretend any longer. They will still try to sound moderate on some issues only to hopefully fool just enough voters.

Biden denied he was a moderate on Chuck Wallace's program two weeks ago. Said he was a progressive. Of course, Wallace had nothing to say.

Today’s Democrat Party is leftwing in their politics. Since the article classified Joseph Biden as being a “Centrist” Democrat means that he was in the center of left wing Democrats and lately has been moving further left, probably making promises to certain groups of Democrat voters that he either has no intention of keeping or that Congress will make it impossible to keep. So right now and up to the Democrat National Convention it is clear that Biden will portray himself as being very left wing espousing extreme left wing politics. If Biden gets past that Convention as the Democrat nominee for President, look for Biden as a liberal Democrat lawyer-politician with little scruples will most likely swing back and fraudulently portray himself as more right wing than President Trump. Remember when Trump was running for President he did not do that, but told every American what his big political agenda would be, and since being elected Trump has tried to keep those promises in the face of 24/7 Democrat and “UniParty” resistance including the fraudulent Russia investigation and its Mueller offshot, partisan Democrat impeachment efforts, and now a global pandemic.

Doesn't matter if Joe's a centrist. His party is run by the fringe element, and Joe going along with it.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to dismiss the lawsuit against them for the controversial impeachment-related subpoenas for phone records, including those of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lawyer. Schiff and the Committee are being represented by the Office of General Counsel for the House of Representatives. The phone records led to the publication of the private phone records of Giuliani, Congressman Devon Nunes, journalist John Solomon, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, attorney Victoria Toensing, and other American citizens.

Coronavirus Is the 'Chinese Virus' 8 replies

This week, President Donald Trump came under fire for his use of the phrase "Chinese virus" to describe the coronavirus, the source of the new pandemic that has led to a global economic shutdown as well as lockdowns of citizens in every major Western country. That media have somehow found time to hone in on the one issue that matters least -- the labeling of a Chinese virus as such -- in the middle of an unprecedented planetwide freeze demonstrates the utter unseriousness of those objecting. That the term should be controversial at all is nearly beyond belief. The virus did indeed originate in China.

A few weeks ago, Hindu friends and colleagues in India turned to me in desperation about the way in which the Western media has been covering the latest chapter in the forever ongoing Hindu-Muslim wars. Every single article in the mass media has blamed Hindus only and has presented the Muslims as the most innocent and non-violent of beings. Missing entirely is the history of eight hundred years of Muslim persecution of Hindus in India; what happened in 1948 that led to partitioning India into a Hindu state and into two Muslim states: Pakistan and thereafter, Bangladesh, both states where Hindus and Christians are persecuted.

Just a few days ago, the word "caremongering" did not exist. Yet just three days later what started as a way to help vulnerable people in Toronto has turned into a movement spreading fast across Canada. More than 35 Facebook groups have been set up in 72 hours to serve communities in places including Ottawa, Halifax and Annapolis County in Nova Scotia, with more than 30,000 members between them. People are joining the groups to offer help to others within their communities, particularly those who are more at risk of health complications related to coronavirus.

Voters in three states will head to the polls on Tuesday amid a coronavirus health crisis that has led other states to postpone their elections. The primaries in Arizona, Florida and Illinois will continue as planned, as state officials say they’ve taken the necessary precautions to ensure that voters can safely cast ballots. The fate of Ohio's primary was settled late Monday when Gov. Mike DeWine (R) announced his administration would order all polling locations to be closed due to a health emergency, capping a day of mixed messages and confusion.

The “experts” and the “media” are eternally and loudly predicting doom and gloom, so I took Sunday to look at the bright side. Here is a view from ground level. Everybody went shopping last Thursday. Normally our local big chain crowds up on Sunday afternoon in the winter, but Thursday probably set an all-time attendance record. The atmosphere was all business; shoppers on a mission. There wasn’t a particular run on things, just those you would expect; rice, spaghetti noodles, mac and cheese. There was plenty of meat, and lots of beautiful produce. I love roasted red peppers.

The Centers for Disease Control has a $6.6 billion budget and one job which it messes up every time. The last time the CDC had a serious workout was six years ago during the Ebola crisis. Back then CDC guidelines allowed medical personnel infected with Ebola to avoid a quarantine and interact with Americans until they showed undeniable symptoms of the disease. There were no protocols in place for treating the potentially infected resulting in the further spread of the disease inside the United States. At the height of the crisis, confidence in the CDC fell to 37%.

After rattling the country with his implausible bravura and rather embarrassing statements at his press conference last week, where he astounded the scientific community with the depth of his epidemiological knowledge, President Trump is now turning the corner on the coronavirus crisis. His original performance was a bit like President Obama’s in 2014 when — after having tacitly encouraged the rise of ISIS with his petulant withdrawal from Iraq and having announced that he would intensify targeted bombing and increase training and advisory services to the defeated Iraqis — he declared,

Black voters voting behavior is a perplexing dynamic.

But this didn’t happen overnight. It’s been decades of head in the sand mentality that has cost black voters dearly. Recall former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, who rose to a leadership position as a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Michael Bloomberg was a horrible mayor. I will never forgive Bloomberg for destroying my home town. After the dreadful terror attack on 9/11, most of us wanted to give Mayor Rudy Giuliani a third term, even though term limits was the rule. Alas, Giuliani didn't have Bloomberg's billions because after Bloomberg's two nanny –filled terms, he managed to bribe the Democrat City Council to waive that rule. Phony baloney Bloomberg ran as a Republican in 2001 even though we knew he was a Massachusetts liberal Democrat but it was such a terrible time that we were shell-shocked by the horror in our city.

The far right in America has received the coronavirus pandemic in much the same manner as any other event: with disinformation, conspiracies and scapegoating. Many seem to see it as a significant opportunity, whether it is for financial gain, recruiting new followers, or both. The delayed and much criticized response to coronavirus by the Trump administration has helped them, leaving many Americans confused, bereft of information and looking for answers. A situation in which people are panic-buying supplies is ideal for a movement powered by fear and lies.

With the insufficient supply of bathroom paper products, more Californians are buying flushable wipes, baby wipes, and other self-care paper products. The problem is the so-called flushable wipes and other products can cause problems in sanitary sewer systems. The bathroom hygiene products are marketed as flushable, but wastewater officials say that’s misleading.
