as anxiety grows
ahead of general election

Original Article

Former Vice President Joe Biden has approved a series of new hires that will significantly expand his presidential campaign and could begin to quell concerns among a growing chorus of Democrats that are anxious for his team to scale up ahead of the general election fight with President Donald Trump. The staffing includes new senior advisers with a focus on the virtual side of campaigning, all coming from former competitors-turned-endorsers' campaigns.

Comments:

Time for "gropey" Joe to come out of the basement.

Translation: He’s approved picking up some of the Bloomberg campaign workers who were dumped on the DNC … Some will recall that Bloomberg hired scads of campaign workers, promising them he would pay them for the duration of the election campaign period. Then he cut his own campaign short. What to do? Made a big “donation” to the DNC. Then informed them that his unemployed campaign workers belonged to them. Perez missed something in the fine print? Dem candidates across the country have been balking at hiring any of them. My two bits say Biden said OK.

So that means Joe will appear awake, he might know what day it is, he might remember the question he was asked, he will talk in complete sentences and promises not to sniff hair or touch any female inappropriately no matter what their age. Good luck with that.

The next time he does an event from his basement - - there will be two - - yes TWO - - birds tweeting in the background. But don't blame Joe for the last disaster. He was just having a bad plug day.

Allowing Biden to appear in public will be devastating. His wife will talk while he moves his mouth. He is mentally incompetent, PERIOD, and should be allowed to retire in peace.

Translation: Biden has found the first step to get out of the basement. (literally and figuratively) How did he get to the basement? Who put him there? Does Biden know that he is in the basement?

When we know a Biden clip is about to show, we tune in, not for content! For the comic relief. He is a buffoon. The people around him are not, they are ruthless liars. But Biden has lived his life as such a phony, duplicitous hanger-on who stumbles over the words others feed to him to swallow and then regurgitate. almost literally.

This is all about digital campaigning across the country. His going viral. Whoop-dee-doo. Don’t they realize that his videos go viral now. For all the wrong reasons. It’s the candidate, Stupid… (or that could be rephrased: It’s the stupid candidate…).

The more Biden is exposed to the American people the better it will be for President Trump. Right now Biden is sitting in his basement reading off TelePrompTers as he makes statements, and answers pre set up softball questions from the liberal TV networks. If Biden does get out in the sunshine it won’t be long before anyone above moron status will quickly recognize that Biden no longer knows which way is up.

His Gropiness is gonna make MORE appearances? Man, this is comedy gold. His wife obviously has a bad case of "First Lady Envy" something fierce, and wants to re-do some curtains and carpets (wonder if they match??) in the White House. As Flounder said just before the big parade: "Oh boy, this is gonna be GREAT!"

To those who say he’ll be doing more appearances, read the intro for a clue as to what this article is about. “…new senior advisers with a focus on the virtual side of campaigning…” That’s video, folks. Many of those hired are experienced in digital production.

Joe's never had much upstairs, only big talk. Now his brain is scrambled. Sad that his handlers keep putting him out there. Embarrassing. I'm sure they're looking hard for a replacement, but they don"t have much of a bench, a bunch of .125 hitters..

Did I miss something ? Throughout the whole article there were quotes and comments from a dozen (at least) people and not a word from JOE !!! Hey Democrats, by August you will have to either dig him up or bury him.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is pushing for a new stimulus bill that would roll back the state and local tax deduction (SALT), a proposal that would predominately help wealthy individuals -- including most residents in Pelosi's district and perhaps even Pelosi herself. A 2019 report from the Joint Committee on Taxation projected that of those who would face lower tax liability from the elimination of the SALT cap – which only affects those who itemize tax deductions – 94 percent earn at least $100,000.

"The other Democratic candidates for President have many great ideas that will absolutely move our country forward, but we won’t be able to get any of those done until we end the hostile corporate takeover of our democracy," Steyer said in a statement, released alongside his announcement video.

The Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been an ‘absolute chaotic disaster,’ former President Barack Obama said on Friday. President Trump’s predecessor blamed the current occupant of the Oval Office and his allies for exacerbating ‘tribal’ tensions around the country, which he says has hampered the effort to reduce total number of cases nationwide. Audio of the web call in which Obama spoke was obtained by Yahoo News. ‘What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy - that has become a stronger impulse in American life,’ the president said.

Matt Drudge’s media links compilation has been one of the sites I’ve checked every morning for the last decade. The Drudge Report always had links to sites with stories I would not see on my trusted sites. I say “had” because I am weaning myself from it due to the dramatic shift in bias I’ve observed, especially in the most recent months. The Drudge Report has become part of the leftist media cabal slanting coverage to defeat President Trump. There were dramatic revelations in the plot to get Trump this week–virtually ignored by The Drudge Report. DOJ dismissed the charges against General Mike Flynn because of clear, unequivocal evidence of the FBI’s plot

“History is written by the winners,” William Barr, the attorney general, said Thursday when asked how he thought future generations would assess his decision to drop all criminal charges against Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, who had pleaded guilty twice to breaking the law. “So it largely depends on who’s writing the history.” In service to Mr. Trump, Mr. Barr is abusing his power not to write, but to erase, some of the most important lessons of American history.

As my colleague streiff reported earlier, a “private call” from former President Barack Obama just happened to be leaked to Michael Isikoff. Strange, isn’t it, how this leak parallels leaks during the Russia investigation that also went to Isikoff with information seemingly meant to undermine Donald Trump? The same reporter who was leaked to about Carter Page. Almost as if there’s a pattern there that we’re seeing once again. On the call that obviously was private and not at all staged to be leaked, Obama said he was concerned that the “rule of law is at risk”

After seeming years of silence, and plenty of billionaire vacays, President Obama is on the warpath. Here's what the Washington Post is reporting: Former president Barack Obama shared deep worries Friday about the Justice Department’s decision to drop its prosecution of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn (snip) The release of congressional interview transcripts, the declassification of some elements of the DoJ Inspector General investigation, and the news of the FISA warrant abuses on Carter Page, as well as the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn, pretty well tell a story of Obama being the big power behind all of these legal abuses

The Biden for President campaign is building a “secret” group of Republican supporters in an effort to entice would-be Trump voters to cast a ballot for the former Vice President instead, per a Daily Beast report Sunday.The group is likely to attract so-called “Never Trump” Republicans, many of whom have been working against the president since before he won the election in 2016, and have undertaken several mostly unsuccessful efforts to undermine the president’s administration and derail his re-election.Biden gave some insight into the group’s creation late last month when he suggested that his campaign was “speaking to a lot of Republicans,”

On Friday, Ted Cruz flew to Dallas for a haircut. He hadn’t been looking particularly shaggy, but as hair salons have become the latest front in the culture war, Cruz—never one to miss an opportunity to declare which side he’s on—invited photographers to join him before he donned a face mask and a leopard-print smock for his visit to Salon à la Mode. The Dallas salon has become pivotal in the stay-at-home-order debates after its owner, Shelley Luther, was arrested on Tuesday and sentenced to seven days in jail on a contempt of court charge. That stemmed from her refusal to apologize and close down her store until the second phase

It's one of the biggest lies in leftist media and insider Washington politics: President Obama left the White House after eight years without a single scandal. "We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us," Obama said during a private event in 2018, which was then repeated by his adoring allies. This is blatantly untrue and new information about the FBI's unsubstantiated criminal investigation into General Michael Flynn proves Obama was engaged in scandalous abuses of power right up until the moment he left the presidency.

Former President Barack Obama on Friday said that the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been an “absolute chaotic disaster” and blamed it on a “selfish” and “tribal” mindset that has become operationalized in government. “This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life,” he said.

When it comes to dictating how the news shall be presented to the American public, the Associated Press stylebook plays a key role (snip) On Friday, the AP suddenly announced that the word “mistress” is doubleplusungood.
