Biden's 'allies' gearing up
to sink his campaign

In politics your friends are more trouble than your enemies. Joe Biden is experiencing this phenomenon right now. Even though Democratic voters and interests detest President Trump to an unprecedented degree, the squabbling factions of their coalition continue to impose demands on Biden and parse every word, making sure he doesn’t violate ideological norms and sensibilities — potentially costing him the presidency. America’s two-party system forces candidates for president to cobble together a big coalition of interests and demographics that sit uncomfortably under a big tent. The result is competing demands and constant jockeying for influence. These interests often lose

Comments:

It will be hard to please the Antifa-wing of the Democrat party. For now Dems will just keep Old Joe in lockdown so no one notices the massive fissures in the party.

Biden can't really attack China because Trump & GOP will slammed Joe with Hunter. Can't escape that.

Biden's "campaign" ran aground in the basement long ago. Nothing left to sink, it is on the bottom now.

FTA … f Biden is not permitted to launch an attack on a soft target like China — or has to “nuance” his message down to mush — his campaign is in for a world of internal problems. Yeh Joe get tough on CHINA after Hunter's windfall.

"America’s two-party system forces" No this is just dems. Part of the reason is that dems support no ethical or moral standards. There is nothing outside your identity to pin your membership on. As Uncle Joe said, if you are real Black or real Hispanic you must be a dem. That is because Republicans are racist, i.e not dems. If you are a real woman. you must be a dem. That is because Republicans are misogynist, i.e. not dems. If you are young you must be a dem. That is because Republicans want you to (shudder) earn what you get, i.e. not dems who are willing to give you free stuff. If you are a real labor member you must be a dem. That is because Republicans hate the working man and want you to become more productive to earn more money, i.e. not a dem who will allow you to coerce your employer into paying more than your labor is worth and destroy his business and your job. Dem - "a dangerous woke-progressive culture that dictates how people are permitted to act, speak, and engage. A poorly chosen sentence or even the wrong word sends the “wokest” of them into fits of rage." YUP! Republicans are supposed to have principles that transcend identity and do, kind of. For example, personal freedoms, free enterprise, Constitutional law, sovereignism and patriotism, etc. "the activists in the Democratic base cannot resist hectoring Biden and his campaign away from doing what he needs to win." This is a joke. Biden is clueless. Left to himself, Biden would sit in a chair in an empty room and do nothing. Part of the reason be makes so many gaffees is that he has nothing substantial to draw on. His mind casts about, latches on to something, and out it comes. There is no evaluation process as to the nature or appropriateness of what he says. Nor does it matter because tomorrow he will say the opposite of today. He babbles. The reason that Biden's allies are rushing to take over Biden's "campaign" is that Biden is a vacuum and nature abhors a vacuum.

The democrats' only strategy has been to push the same-old same-old on the public and sometimes give it a different name, like Hope 'n Change, etc. Now they are trying that plan with Joe Biden where a semi-fossilized old dinosaur is being packaged as a real candidate. Wake up, dems, it's the same old Joe.

today on Fox News, a large, well, very large black woman, larger than Stacey Abrams and Yamiche from PBS, together on the loading dock scales, read Old Jo Biden's words related to the rioting. The very large black woman was identified as his spokesperson or something. are his handlers forbidding him to speak in public?

I have a, to me at least, simple question; Why doesn't Jill Biden take Joe Biden aside and say to him; "It's time to quite. Your no longer up to doing this. Your making a fool out of yourself. Just retire gracefully." To me it is a total disgrace as to what the Democrats are doing to Joe Biden. He has moved on and they won't let him know it. They, the demonrats are using him as a pawn because they can't find anyone else that is willing to challenge the current President and the FANTASTIC job he has been doing under ALL of the adverse deceit he has to put up with.

There is no Democrat Party left. It has broken up into the gays, the unions, the minorities, butt hurt feminists, abortionists, Antifa, Bernie Bros, etc etc etc. There is no cohesive message and no real platform. The only thing that unites them is America (Trump) hatred. The only tactic they have is to write 8000 page bills in the House that dole out enough taxpayer booty to keep everyone happy. They are despicable.

Biden's removal would really be funny, as it should show the rank-and-file Democrat voter just how little his input actually means to the powers-that-be. All those primaries would have been a complete waste of time and money.

And let us pray that the independent and undecided voters will see the democrats' cozy relationship with protesters and rioters and ask themselves whether or not this is the America that they will choose to inhabit. The leftists have never left 1968 and the democrats are their enablers.

As protests for racial justice and against police brutality continue to unfold across the country (and worldwide), many of the events have turned violent, with nighttime burning and looting taking the place of more peaceful daytime rallies. And unsurprisingly, President Trump is only stoking the (literal) fires with his incendiary and not at all fact-based tweets. (Namely, he called protesters “THUGS” in his characteristic all-caps tweet-shout, and dropped a phrase with racist origins that also glorifies violence: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”) But among all the nation’s leaders who, unlike Trump, are actually trying to do some leading

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and U.S. Representative Val Demings of Florida have risen in prominence amid protests against police brutality as Joe Biden weighs whether to choose a black woman as his Democratic running mate for November's presidential election. Activists say such a pick would excite disenchanted African-American voters and demonstrate to a crucial part of the Democratic base that Biden is committed to criminal justice reform following the death of George Floyd, who was black, in Minneapolis last week at the hands of a white police officer. Biden has said Demings, 63, a former police chief of Orlando

Footage emerged of the white man, dressed all in black, and in gloves and boots, calmly smashing the windows of an auto parts store with a large hammer. His face is obscured by an expensive-looking gas mask and he is also holding an open black umbrella — although it was not raining. Twitter quickly christened him 'Umbrella Man'.

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK - U.S. President Donald Trump is trusted more than Democratic nominee Joe Biden to handle the economy, polls show, even with more than 40 million Americans filing jobless claims and growth stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden is expected to release a large-scale recovery plan in the coming weeks. Democrats are watching closely to see if his message matches the moment

In an address made from the Rose Garden on Monday, Trump described the violent protests as “domestic acts of terror” that law enforcement must “dominate the streets” in order to quell. “If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said.

But the South Carolina Republican noted that rioting and looting happened during protests long before the militant anti-fascist group became a movement. “We will try to find out how organized this violence is,” Mr. Graham said. “But I am old enough to remember 1968, and Antifa was not around in 1968, that I know of.”

That goes all the way back to Dr. Martin Luther King," he said. "But on the other hand, we have to go to the root cause of people's protesting that leads to violence, whether it is agitated violence or just violence because people feel frustrated and bitter."
