Biden’s interview with Mika
looked okay but was,
in fact, a train wreck

Friday morning, Joe Biden sat down for an interview with Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Mika asked some hard-hitting questions about Tara Reade’s allegation that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993. Biden looked unusually alert and tracked fairly well for most of the interview until he got tired and confused (at the 14-minute mark). More disturbing than that, though, were the misrepresentations and elisions that made it appear as if he were answering the questions when, in fact, he wasn’t. Most surprisingly, Biden insisted that it would be better for him if nobody could see his records before the election.

And this is in what can be considered a friendly environment. Mika wasn't going to press him very hard. The questions were probably narrowed down to certain topics. Can you imagine Uncle Joe on a debate stage with lightning quick Trump? Trump's problem would be not to humiliate the the poor guy too badly. Uncle Joe is the BEST that the dems have to offer? Given the small stature of all the dem candidates, and the pathetic performance of the dem leaders in the last couple years, you can understand the dearth of talent that the dems face. But really, Uncle Joe?? Granted that Comrade Bernie is a sure loser but even Spartacus or the Indian brewski drinker would have been better. Dems are in this position because the party cannot be honest with its voters. They support absurd positions that will never be implemented or work because they "speak" to one group or another. They are bribing their voters with fools gold.

"Biden looked unusually alert". Now there's a real compliment about someone who wants to be president.

Count Dracula looks very alert when he emerges from his coffin at night, no doubt because he has the thought of drinking somebody's blood to put a spark in his eyes. Joe can't even achieve that much resemblance to life. We know that polls have grown steadily more dishonest since they found it necessary to constantly prop up the Kenyan but I find it hard to believe that Old Joe leads Donald Trump in even one state. The polls told us in 2016 that the Fat Lady from Chappaqua was going to be President and that only caused the damage of a big screen at DNC headquarters and the waste of a lot of champagne.

I keep going back to this because it is so telling... “ No, it is not true. I am saying unequivocally it never, never happened, and it didn’t. It never happened.” It, it, it. He never said, “I didn’t do it.” How very Clinonesque. What it says to me is guilty, guilty, guilty.

First, it may be a trap to search Senate records for Tara's complaint. The Sainted George Mitchell was Senate Majority Leader in 1993, and he was ruthlessly protective of his Party, although he hid that quite well. Any notes probably disappeared. therefore, the notes Tara references, most likely disappeared. (As I too often remind you people, I was an arbitrator for 30 plus years, and I tried cases where, on occasion, Company or Union records mysteriously disappeared.) second, I doubt, on the issue of bartending, biden told her, directly, that he wanted to have her as bartender 'because she had pretty legs.' His assistant might have offered her that information, but that is rank heresay. Heresay is inadmissable in court for good reason. during my professor days, I had one sexual harassment complaint filed against me. a mentally ill female student alleged that I used charm and seduction in my lectures, to 'take advantage' of female students. Anyone who ever took a course from me knew the mentally ill woman was concocting a lie. and, fortunately, the president of my university knew me, and had observed me. The woman's complaint went nowhere. Having had such a false charge filed against a man, though, changes him forever. It did that to me. We can't have the rule of law by following, somewhat ironically, the Obola/Biden rules on sexual harassment.

No doubt he was given the questions well in advance. Does Mika have a breathing issue? She had to catch her breath after every utterance.

For me, it's not strictly about the language of one's answers or whether or not they directly answer a question. In the case of Blasey Ford, she was joking about needing caffeine one moment, then turned on the shaky emotional voice in the next. But never a tear, her eyes didn't even water while describing a life altering sexual assault. Obvious liar. In the case of Biden's denial, an innocent man would be screaming from the rooftops that his and his family's reputation is being ruined. He'd demand an investigation. He would open his files. He would certainly question Reade's motives. He would attack her. He would want to confront her. Instead, he tries to appease so it will just go away. The man is certainly no leader and he's lying about this assault.

I, too, suspect that he was given the questions in advance. Especially since he came on so seemingly lucid at first. They probably even had cue cards with the answers for him (we are talking about MSNBC), but he lost focus and couldn't follow them as time went by. Biden's wife, Jill, should be prosecuted under the law covering abuse of the elderly!

Why is the writer surprised that Biden knows he is toast if his records are released before the election? He knows what he did in his Senate career, and he knows what he did as VP. He is a rotten predator and he should be exposed by the media. But they are too busy still protecting him. They want Obama's third term and they do not care who or what they hurt.

I didn't know who the woman was asking the questions I never in my life watched that network. What I observed during the denial was Joe Biden almost making the hint that 'if' he did attack Reade it was 27 years ago so let's all forget about it. He repeated the '27 years ago' almost as if was casual to walk away from the incident because time expired. The old dreck Biden was turning red and I don't know if it was having more of an anger issue because he was being asked about the incident. Maybe he was on the verge of calling this woman, Mika, a lying dog face pony soldier or getting ready to challenge her to pushups out behind the gym. Like my grandma would say, "the man's not right in the head".

It was 1793. George Washington was President. Philadelphia was the U.S. capital. Dr. Benjamin Rush, a Philadelphia physician and former surgeon-general of Washington’s army, was the de facto head of the Department of Health of the new country. When a yellow-fever epidemic hit Philadelphia, President George Washington fled to Virginia. Dr. Rush stayed behind and worked hard to quarantine and treat the sick.

It is an increasingly common statement, in comments sections, in social media posts and from callers on talk radio programs, “I think I had COVID-19 back in [name your month].” This is an important phenomenon for public policy. If they believed the experts, if they trusted what their governments had told them, then would people make that statement? Governments around the world saw COVID-19 start in early March and shuttered their economies, claiming it necessary to stop its spread. To ponder if one had COVID-19 before March is to doubt that narrative, and that pondering is amplified by those who tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

Unsealed internal FBI documents reveal that top FBI officials conspired to set up General Michael Flynn to “get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.” The fact that these documents only turned up now is just one part of the DOJ’s and FBI’s Russia hoax, an ongoing effort to stage a coup against the Trump administration. The DOJ’s and FBI’s malicious prosecution against Flynn consisted of withholding exculpatory information (including the material discussed here), threatening without cause to prosecute Flynn’s son to force Flynn to plead guilty, and blackmailing Flynn’s attorneys into working against him.

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

The Democratic political field is awash with designing women.

Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, one Biden’s 2020 presidential-race rivals, is rarely mentioned as a possible running mate. She has her sights set on something else — secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. Female former candidates have also been auditioning for the VP job — albeit more subtly than Abrams. On April 20, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in for a chummy appearance on Biden’s podcast “Here’s the Deal,”

Never was former Vice President Joe Biden the 2020 dream. He promised electability and familiarity, which turned out to be good enough for a plurality of Democratic voters in the early primaries. But now that every other Democratic contender has dropped out and dutifully lined up behind the presumptive nominee, that choice might be sitting less comfortably. Biden is campaigning from his basement, giving interviews in which he occasionally moves past gaffes into total incoherence, raising questions about his mental fitness. Worst of all, evidence for a sexual assault allegation against him begins to mount.
