The Biden Basement Strategy Backfires

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 8/4/2020 4:49:31 AM

Call it an unforced error — a potentially serious backfire. Over there at CNN, former Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart outs the Democrats’ greatest fear: that Joe Biden will be a disaster in the scheduled presidential debates with President Trump. So Lockhart’s recommendation to Biden? Don’t debate. Lockhart’s stated reason for a Biden refusal to debate is, no kidding, this: Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat

Huge odds he will never be President. Huge odds he won’t even remain the candidate. Say goodnight, Joe.

Mike Obama feels a stirring in "her" loins. Traitor Soetero feels another eight years looming on the horizon. But you know what? They both deserve to be put down like old dogs or feral cats.

You can bet the V.P. will take advantage immediately. Anyone who runs as Joe's Vice President is there for one purpose and that is to become President as soon as is possible. The dems want to destroy this country and they will choose one of their favorites to make that happen.

If his handlers won’t let Biden debate, PDT should hold them anyway and debate an empty podium a la Clint Eastwood and the empty chair. And I think that PDT would do a much better job of it. He could be perfectly nice and calm and it would be absolutely brutal for Biden.

I think the dems are punting the Presidential contest, they know they can't win. They just want the House & Senate. They can get rid of PDJT that way. We have to get the vote out to get Republicans in & democrats out. How anyone with a modicum of intelligence could vote for a dem after all we're seen this year is beyond my understanding.

Great article, never the details of Wilson’s infirmity. I’m still perplexed about the Democrat strategy. Despite him naming a VP before the convention, the DNC can replace him after he is nominated, with a Presidential candidate, e.g. Clinton. Or, are they going allow Biden and his VP pick to go to “slaughter” and lock and load for 2024?

I don't think the Woodrow Wilson scenario would work today for a president, but it does seem to be the blueprint for keeping Ruth Bader Gunsburg on the court (has anyone seen her in the last 3 months?). Biden will be more like the crazy aunt locked in the attic that Ross Perot kept warning us about.

Reply to no. 10. One of Lockhart's "Trump lies" is, he said he would build the wall and he hasn't. Last I checked he is "building" the wall, but in Clinton-speak, that is not the same as "built" the wall.

As sad as it is to see this elder abuse, it's tough to not feel that Old Quid Pro Joe deserves it. Personally, I don't want to say or do anything that helps the Dems, so they are forced to keep juggling this live hand-grenade and I want them to have the worst situation possible with the worst outcome when it finally blows up. Thus, I hope they keep him as their nominee. May Joe stay in the basement until after Labor Day and then long about, say, Halloween, we open fire. Full blast ... but wait until you see the whites of their eyes!

Here's an idea. Don't hide Biden's incapacity, and go ahead with the debates. As usual, two lecterns; one with Trump and the other with Biden and a supporting committee. Moderator poses a question; and when it's Biden's turn to answer, the committee huddles for a few minutes and arrives at a consensus answer. Then Biden, or another committee member, states the reply. If anyone complains about this debate format, the Biden/committee response would be "this is what all presidents do in the oval office to arrive at a solution". Debate problem solved!

The purpose of a Trump-Biden debate is to show how kind PDT is to senile people. However, I don't think that PDT should volunteer to wipe the drool off of Biden's chin.

The debates will be Trump (with a dead microphone) vs Biden, the moderators, and a hyper partisan audience. Trump will be forbidden to speak to Biden or ask him any questions because that will take Biden off script that has been prepared the Biden's handlers and the moderators. Perhaps there will be people off stage holding up signs directing the audience to boo and cheer as directed.

Biden is a place-keeper for the UNIPARTY to keep the radicals, who are non-UNIPARTY ideologues, from the nomination one more cycle. The ultimate goal is to rid UNIPARTY Washington of Trump. If he wins re-election, impeachment will follow, maybe even with a GOP-majority House. Conviction in the Senate takes a supermajority, and will have to be bipartisan anyways.

Whatever the dems say, you KNOW it is a lie and you should look for their hidden fear and culpability. Senile Joe is his own worst enemy. Trump would incinerate him with truth and the media wouldn't be able to filter it. It would be VERY public and VERY bad. People who are senile and get trapped can often explode in anger. We have already seen Joe do this. Once Joe melts down, the questions to the media are "WHY didn't you and the dems tell us truthfully about Joe's condition?". "Is it acceptable to run a senile candidate for president?" Of course there is no good answer for this either. The media/dems/Left lied because they will do ANYTHING to win. They are morally and ethically bankrupt and Joe's collapse would expose all that. It would be 100 times worse than Mueller's disastrous public testimony. As to the parallels to Wilson, Wilson fell ill AFTER being elected. It SHOULD have been revealed but it was hidden. That was wrong. Biden isn't even the official nominee yet. The party could pick someone else. Talking about being "truthful", how honest is it to hide a critically debilitating illness from the voters? Senility makes Biden incapable of being president. Period. What else should we expect from the party of "Russia, Russia, Russia". It seems their greatest strength is their ability to deceive.

Biden cannot avoid debating Mr. Trump without damaging his own campaign. That would make Biden look week. Claiming that Mr. Trump does not tell the truth in debates doesn't help Biden either. The average person isn't going to accept that. The claim makes Biden look weak. On top of that, the claim is inaccurate.

Lockhart's stated reason for 'no debate' makes no sense, because a public debate would be the most visible way that any competent debater could expose any lies his opponent was spinning. Therefore, Lockhart, like the rest of the Demo establishment, is terrified that Joe will expose his own poor mental state, and thereby seal the election for Trump.

It's official, presidential candidate Joe Biden has chosen California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. (Snip for tweet)But according to former Obama Senior Advisor David Axelrod, Harris wasn't his top choice and politics pushed her into the position. "He reportedly clicked well with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, but she would not have fulfilled the desire of those who prioritized a candidate of color," Axelrod wrote for CNN. "Whitmer, a White moderate pick, also would have raised questions among supporters of progressive champion Massachusetts Sen.

Sidney Powell, the former federal prosecutor who took over Flynn’s legal defense last year, and acting Solicitor General Jeff Wall, representing the Justice Department in court following its move to toss the false statements charge against Flynn, clashed with Judge Emmet Sullivan’s attorney, Beth Wilkinson, during a four-hour hearing before 10 skeptical judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

The Democratic Party press has been assuring us breathlessly that the Republicans are in deep trouble, cruising toward a disaster in November. At the same time, they assiduously avoid mentioning that the party with the real problem is their own. The Democrats’ nominee is suffering from an advanced case of dementia that makes it difficult for him to appear in public. The party’s leaders, to the extent they have any, are undoubtedly strategizing ways of getting him off the ticket following their “convention”–which they won’t actually hold. An unbiased observer might think it is the Democrats, not the Republicans, who have reason to fear the voters’ verdict this Fall.

Susan Rice and her multimillionaire husband have poured thousands of dollars into Joe Biden's presidential campaign, substantially increasing their contributions as the former national security adviser was floated as a potential running mate. Rice and her husband, the former ABC News producer Ian Cameron, increased their contributions to Biden as Rice's name moved to the top of his list of vice presidential options, campaign finance records show, funneling $24,000 to Biden in the month of June alone. The sum marks a vast increase over their previous giving: Prior to that time, the couple had contributed a total of $5,800 to the campaign over the course of the cycle.

If you’ve kept half an eye on the ‘who will it be?’ story that is the Democratic party’s vice-presidential nomination, you’ll have heard commentators suggesting that Biden will pick a ‘do no harm’ candidate. In other words, Biden should play it safe: given his lead in the polls, he can only slip up, so boring is better than original; boring is better than exciting; uninspiring beats edgy.

Last October, Ibrahim Bouaichi sexually assaulted Karla Dominguez with whom he reportedly had been in a relationship. He was charged with six felony counts and held without bond in an Alexandria, Virginia jail. In April, a judge, Nolan Dawkins, ordered the release of Bouaichi due to the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. Bouaichi was 33 years old. The virus probably posed about the same threat to his health as the flu. Moreover, there had been no cases of the virus at the Alexandria jail. Bouaichi’s lawyers argued that visits to the jail had been curtailed and that they needed to meet with their client. But all trials had been postponed.

Clashes with police have led to injuries and arrests, and though the right to assemble is guaranteed by the First Amendment, public safety matters, too.

North Carolina police have charged a neighbor with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding a bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range on Sunday evening. Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he allegedly approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy's father's house at 5:30pm and shot him in the head. Hinnant's seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL. Sessoms lived next door to the family, and the killing is not believed to be random.

A recent landmark poll of 20,000 citizens undertaken by the Knight Foundation and Gallup found that Americans’ hope for and trust in an objective media is all but lost. They see not only an ever-growing partisanship in news reporting but a determination by the mainstream media to push a political agenda instead of honestly disseminating the news. While generic faith in the media has been gradually declining over recent decades, the precipitous drop in trust and questions about what motivates the mainstream media can be traced to June 2015 and Donald Trump’s entry into the presidential sweepstakes.
