What Should Biden Do?

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 4/3/2020 4:38:13 AM

We are living through an extraordinary and unprecedented time. It has required us to readjust our lives, our expectations and our plans. The business of politics is no exception. There's been a lot written over these last few days that this upending of normalcy is taking a toll on former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign. After all, in a non-COVID19 world, Biden would be having a great few weeks. Since his big win in South Carolina, Biden had been on a rout — winning big states and small, and building an insurmountable delegate lead. The political news media would be focused on his success.

Man, this is positive spin if ever there was any. Polls are showing Biden in the lead? I think not. There will be debates between a guy who speaks everyday to the press, answers questions on the spot, all without a teleprompter. Opposed by a guy who gets totally flummoxed if the teleprompter doesn't keep up. Question: Mr. Biden, since you are criticizing the administrations Covid response, what would you have done differently? Hmm?

Gee, Amy are you really that enamored of Creepy Joe? You really think he has a chance? If he were running, Trump wouldn't have to attack him, as Joe is showing himself how incompetent he is every time he opens his mouth and doesn't know where he is or what he is talking about.

Kind of astonishing this article ignores the most salient fact of Vice President Biden's campaign. The fact is that the former US Senator’s conduct in public appearances and his recorded utterances at televised events frequently omit facts, are contrary to the truth, and suggest this behavior by Vice President Biden might be caused by an age-related cognitive deficit. This observation is well-documented and not controversial, an obligato background fact the omission of which nullifies every other part of the analysis.

What a wonderful collection of warped thinking. It's a view into the fevered liberal mind. The author depends heavily on the biased polls showing Trump "underwater". Per polls, Trump is NOT president. Hillary is. This little departure from reality disturbs the author not at all. The author also asserts that, unlike 2016, Trump's presidency is a reality. She assumes that means Trump is in a weaker position. Unfortunately, that is grossly wrong. Trump went into 2016 as an unknown. We didn't know HOW he would govern. Well, now we do. The disaster predictions of the Left have NOT come true. The worries of Conservatives that he would not govern to the right have also proven unfounded. Trump has been a strong leader bringing success across the board. The only troubling thing is the insanity of the Left who have "resisted" themselves over a cliff. When Trump puts cream in his coffee, he is accused of being racist; etc., etc., etc.. The dems meanwhile have decided on Biden, kind of. The reality that they had over 20 turnouts for the primary and they decided on a senile septuagenarian is telling of the true state of the party no matter what their public claims are. A Communist waits in the wings and they are fretting about overturning their entire primary system and crowning the winner of American Idol as their choice, whoever that turns out to be. This illuminates their ideas about elections and votes. To dems, they don't matter. Only being in charge matters. The methods by which they get to that point are of no concern. Their supporters believe any fantasy that they can dream up leading to a dem victory. The only sanity in the article is that these are unique times and therefore unpredictable.

What a person in Biden's position should do looks completely outside his mental and cranial capacity at this time. The report is aptly named. His 'victories' are cooked. His polls are double cooked. As a life long Conservative Republican I am not saying stop this farce. History will show Lyburn (Oh I forgot the C?) did the country a great favor.

FTA; ''Moreover, as I wrote last week, Biden doesn't need to spend as much time attacking and defining the president when he's getting a lot of help from outside groups like Priorities USA and other SuperPACs.'' Umm, Amy honey, didn't you somehow forget to mention besides ''Priorities USA and other SuperPACs''...a little group known as the MEDIA? 95% of them are 100% anti-Trump 24/7, feeding their worm-brained listeners/readers absolute LIES, DAY IN AND DAY OUT.

Did it escape this woman’s notice that her candidate has obvious dementia? Or is that now an acceptable condition as long as he’s not Trump? Could the ‘enthusiasm gap’ have some remote connection to the fact that even Democrat voters aren’t that happy about supporting someone who should literally be in a nursing home?

It is irresponsible to use the words, "Biden" and "success" in the same sentence, even for a journalist. The decision is no longer up to Biden because he has lost the ability to form a coherent thought.

Biden is just a place holder. His running mate will replace him as head of the Democrat party right after the are defeated in the upcoming election. The Rats know Trump will win the election and their losing duo will then become the head of their miserable party. They certainly do not want demolition Sanders taking over their party. We will know who the Rat establishment wants to head their party for the following 4 years when Biden's running mate is announced.

What should Biden do? Check into the Assisted Living facility immediately. He does not seem to have the mental capacity to care for himself, form a good sentence or utter a rational thought. His family should care more about this man than to let him keep embarrassing himself.

First and foremost, Trump is doing what he SHOULD be doing, focusing on the corona virus and how to defeat it (unlike the Democrats, who are trying hard not to let a good crisis go to waste.) Second, Trump doesn't need to do ANYTHING re: Biden, whose every conference is more pathetic than the last. Third, I would feel sorry for the man, who is being humiliated every time he opens his mouth, had he not been such a nasty and dishonest and PREDATORY person while in compos mentis.

Simple answer to all the problems. Trump should just say he is declaring a state of emergency and canceling the November election. Thus, he will have to remain President until the "virus crisis" is gone. There will be a cure in about 3 days. Biden can then come crawling out of his spider-hole and let everyone see just how spacey he really is now. In November he can take, like a man, the beat down he's going to get.

Don't get off topic about Biden and his problems with memory or claiming the onset of dementia. Joe Biden hasn't change he's always been a low IQ braggart and loud mouth. Go back to his early senate years and listen to him he's just dumb and vindictive. The statement about the Ukraine firing an investigator and hopping a flight home is pure Joe Biden. What's on display now is a successful President and a clueless buffoon, Joe Biden, that's why the hair sniffing, dog face, pony soldier looks so stupid because he is stupid. I don't feel sorry for Joe Biden or wish him well he's always been a dead fish on ice that is melting.

IMO, the problem for democrats is that Biden doesn't inspire people to get out and rally, send money, or much less vote. None of the democrats do. The hard-core democrats, who would vote for a goat if it was the candidate, and some who just want to vote against President Trump, will probably vote. The Bernie supporters would get out and vote for him, but there aren't enough of them. That's why Pelosi is making the big money grab now. She is going to lose the House and it will be all over for her. She will never be the leader again. She will go under the bus as the party tries to regroup.

Here is an idea: The DNC knows Joe is toilet paper on their corporate shoe. They want Slo-Joe to take a mighty hit for the party and they are using President Trump's reelection to bring it about. They know they will make Joe the nominee; they know Joe's handlers will pick for VP the anti-Christ of all candidates. They are willing to do all that JUST for the joy of seeing their own beloved Biden brought low. That's how they roll.

I will admit up front that I couldn’t get very far into this drivel. Here’s what Biden should do - keep making those videos from his bunker so that everyone can watch his deterioration. Anyone who believes that he is beating PDT gets their news from Rachel Madcow, Mother Jones and the NY Slimes. They are pumping out a lot of leftist Kool Ade these days and some of the masses are still happily slurping it up. If they think election night 2016 was bad, they are just setting themselves up for a far worse experience this November.

Why did FDR serve 4 terms as President? No one was willing to change horses during the Depression and WWII. The Presidency is not what Conservatives should be worried about. It's winning the House or holding on to the Senate that is the big concern. The Dems are already making noises about canceling in-person voting in favor of absentee or some sort of on-line voting. The opportunities for voter fraud go up expedientialy if these methods were to be used.

John Durham investigation

Posted by Pluperfect 4/4/2020 5:11:28 AM Post Reply
U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

"No state in America does more to help residents regardless of their immigration status," the governor rightly assured the reporter. Newsom first bragged about the state's healthcare coverage for illegal aliens before explaining how his administration is now helping illegal alien small business owners obtain grants while a large part of the American economy remains shut down.

The other day Chris Hayes of MSNBC was pouting about the media’s coverage of Donald Trump’s press briefings. He called the airing of them “crazy.” He particularly didn’t like MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell using one of them to talk about “reading the Bible.” Hayes’ pouting captures the arrogance and secularist prejudice of the media perfectly. The media sees its role not as a reporter of news but as a propagandistic arbiter — a Big Brother that will tell the public what it can and cannot take seriously. The media every day conforms more perfectly to Trump’s description of it as an “opposition party.” Its pulling away

An ABC News investigation offers sobering insight into how COVID-19 has spread and penetrated so broadly, so deeply and so quickly in the United States. It also helps explain why Americans, no matter where they live, must continue to heed the warnings of health officials to self distance and why the virus likely was here far earlier than first realized. With the advent of COVID-19, the world has officially entered a dangerous new phase where a surge in international travel in recent decades served as the springboard -- jet fuel, really -- for an infectious disease potentially to kill hundreds of thousands in the U.S.

For years, we civil libertarians were told that our concerns about the secret court that oversees the FBI’s applications to monitor U.S. citizens were overblown. So what if the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court approved more than 99% of all applications. The bureau and Justice Department must follow an onerous process, we were assured, that protects innocent citizens from being snooped on by their government. Those assurances, as it turns out, were not very reliable. On Tuesday, the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued a new report that found systematic errors of fact in the FBI’s applications for warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

ABC’s Nightline has returned to its old timeslot with a larger audience after late local news (instead of after Jimmy Kimmel Live). On Wednesday’s show, co-host Byron Pitts ended an interview with Vice President Mike Pence by asking him “not in a political way,” but whether he “talk[s] to God” about feeling remorse for Americans who have died “because of steps the federal government did not take soon enough.”So here we had a journalist ask the Vice President if he prays to the Lord with a heart of repentance for having been responsible for dead Americans. Surely, Chuck Todd would be proud of that question.
Why the USS Roosevelt’s
Captain Had To Be Relieved
34 replies
Posted by MissMolly 4/3/2020 4:59:13 AM Post Reply
The decision of American Navy to relieve the captain who warned publicly of coronavirus on his nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strikes us as the right move. We get that it’s a sad setback for an officer in an incredible command. The minute we read the captain’s letter about the crisis on United States Ship Theodore Roosevelt, though, we saw it as a breach on a matter that should have been kept within the chain of command. That’s easy to say, we understand, for a newspaper whose landlubber of an editor can’t go to Jones Beach without getting seasick.
