Time for the Democrats to
Pull the Plug on Joe Biden?

Original Article

Here is the latest from Joe Biden: he misread his teleprompter, and pronounced that by the time his speech was over, 200 million Americans–two-thirds of our population!–will have died from COVID-19, and it is all President Trump’s fault: If you need more proof that Joe Biden is a teleprompter puppet, here it is. "It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk." He just said 2/3 of the US will die by the time he’s done talking & blamed Trump. pic.twitter.com/t1sl3vSF58 — Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) September 20, 2020

Pull the plug(s)?! Not hardly. They want to force him into office so that they can pivot and do an Article 25 on him and install the Far-Left Winnie Mandela wannabe in his place...probably with Hillary or Bernie as VP.

Well, it really is too late to pull the plug. All of the ballots have been printed and are being distributed. I'm not sure what they can do.

An interesting 5-7+ weeks coming up. Agree with #1 and 3. They might be thinking of pulling the plug, but they will need to deal with the first debate soon. And after that, there is a list of news cycle items that could eat away their air time. Lots of decisions.

Its actually way past time to pull the plug on Plugs. But the Dims won't do it. They're stuck with the Trojan horse they bought at the ACME Bargain Basement Days. It looked great inside the store, but once out in the daylight they found the varnish peeling, loose boards rotten and squeaky wheels. Hidden in the head there is loudspeaker hooked to an old cassette tapedeck that plays words at random mimicking semi-coherent sentences. Its just not appealing enough to have people pull it inside the gates, so they've covered it over in flags and bunting hoping no one will notice its true condition. People have noticed. The happiest living Democrat right now has to be Mike "Tank Commander" Dukakis.

The plug was pulled when Kamala Harris was chosen as President in waiting. Both Harris and Biden exposed it is the Harris-Biden administration that is on the ballot.

Great job, Clyburn! After all of the BLM violence and all of the leftists pandering to blacks, it would be major karma if a black guy took the party down with his antics in South Carolina - a red state. I wonder if the left will ever get around to blaming him for their semi-comatose nominee. Oh, no, they would never do that - Clyburn is black and therefore untouchable.

I think Biden is one of the most despicable persons to have ever been elected. My dog drops matter that has more intelligence and integrity than this bum. I don’t give a rat’s axx how important he thinks his aviator glasses make him look. He is a known liar and plagiarizer (takes credit for others work). He is now unhealthy and running for the Presidency. This in itself should give credence to what many have stated on this post and elsewhere; he is a placeholder for the nutty commie Kamala. This truly displays the Dems are not the all-caring party. They are the nastiest, most unscrupulous, un-American, commie POS that I would not have imagined could have some control of our country. Trump is the only answer to these vile roaches and must be stopped. Let’s keep the Senate and take back the House and our country. All Pats must ensure to vote in person to stop the Dem madness. Either stop them or buy more ammo and be prepared for the fight.

They're in too far to pull him now. They may still try to release him from the debates. Now they're frazzled that DJT has pulled the virus from the front page and put there a wonderful judge, dedicated mother and person of faith from the heartland.

Brace for Democrats

Posted by Pluperfect 9/23/2020 4:56:14 AM Post Reply
How much do Democrats hate Roman Catholics? We’re about to find out, once President Trump nominates, most likely, Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. No surprises here — the Democrats have a long, sordid history of anti-Catholicism. And Judge Barrett understands the Democrats’ rabid bigotry first-hand, from her first Senate confirmation hearing in 2017, when she was confronted by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the now 87-year-old Democrat doyenne. “When you read your speeches,” Feinstein told her, “the conclusion one draws is that the Dogma lives loudly within you. And that’s a concern.” Imagine Feinstein saying that to a Muslim. You can’t.

New York Times Magazine staffer Nikole Hannah-Jones accused me once of rank jealousy. She said my criticism for her flawed 1619 Project stems from the fact that, unlike her, I do not “have good ideas and the talent to execute them.” We apparently have different understandings of what constitutes a “good idea” and “talent.” New York Times Magazine editors have quietly removed controversial language from the online version of Hannah-Jones’s 1619 Project, a package of essays that argue chattel slavery defines America’s founding.

Joe Biden has been politicizing the deaths of Americans from COVID for months, and today, when the official tally passed 200,000 American deaths, Biden pounced on the news. “Trump panicked. The virus was too big for him,” Biden claimed without evidence. “He just wasn’t up to it. He froze, he failed to act, he panicked. And America has paid the worst price of any nation in the world.” This is, of course, not true. Not only did the Trump administration respond early and aggressively, but America has not “paid the worst price of any nation in the world” in deaths per capita.

Trump hasn’t even named his pick to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, and already the media is stepping up to fulfill its role as the propaganda adjunct for the Democratic Party and its leftward-most pressure groups. • Like this NBC “News” story: “Critics” say! Which critics? I’m surprised they don’t say “experts” just to give it that special CDC glow. I wonder what Anthony Fauci thinks? How long until the CDC declares that Ginsburg-Grief is a serious health threat that can only be cured if Trump appoints Nina Totenberg to the Supreme Court?

Two of the hoariest cliches in the American-politics business are the work of a turn-of-the-20th-century Chicago newspaper columnist named Finley Peter Dunne, who wrote in the voice of an Irish bartender named Mr. Dooley. They are 1) “The Supreme Court follows th’ illiction returns” and 2) “politics ain’t beanbag.” (Fun fact: Pat Moynihan, himself quite the Irish-American aphorist, had a beloved dog named Mr. Dooley.) Keep them in mind as you consider the madness that has gripped the commentariat and the elites when it comes to the question of the now-open Supreme Court seat long occupied by the remarkable Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may her memory be a blessing.
The Riot Party 2 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 9/22/2020 4:40:37 AM Post Reply
America’s present crisis is driven in large part by the Left’s rejection of the rule of law. Those in charge of the riots are not merely blackmailing their fellow citizens on particular issues like defunding the police. Rather, they seek to overthrow the electoral process itself. Twenty-five years ago, when O.J. Simpson was on trial for murder, there was much speculation about whether there would be race riots in the event of a conviction. I wrote an article in National Review West, a supplement to National Review produced by the Claremont Institute. The title was “Riots and Politics.” Today, it seems prophetic. I raised the question—not altogether facetiously—why there was no speculation

The United States is a diverse nation, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting our government to include people from all walks of life and perspectives. But in fashion sadly typical for today’s Democratic Party, Joe Biden just responded to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with an extreme invocation of identity politics. His regressive approach to filling her seat sabotages true diversity and progress. Biden has explicitly made it clear that white women and men of all races need not apply for his Supreme Court shortlist. “I’m looking forward to making sure there’s a black woman on the Supreme Court,” he said

Trump famously boasted in 2016 that there’d be so much winning that we’d get tired of all the winning. The last week has seen so much winning that not even the most extravagant NFL end zone celebration can express it. First, last Thursday, Constitution Day, Trump took direct aim at the pernicious 1619 Project, and announced his plan to have a 1776 Commission to confront the 1619 Project directly. The left naturally freaked out, but amazingly the NY Times is suddenly backtracking from a few of the more egregious claims the 1619 Project contained. (More on this in a separate post.) Then on Friday we got Secretary Betsy DeVos’s letter to Princeton

Louisville police declared a state of emergency Monday in anticipation of an announcement in the Breonna Taylor case (Snip for tweet) Earlier in the day the department canceled all days off with the exception of vacation that had been previously approved. The DA’s office isn’t commenting on what is happening but the belief is that the case is being presented to a grand jury today, meaning a decision on whether to charge officers involved in the shooting could be announced any day now. In addition to putting the police on alert, federal buildings in the city have been closed for the week.

Constitutional revolution is going mainstream. After delivering lectures about political norms for the entirety of the Trump era (often with good cause), much of the left is now threatening to kneecap an important institution of American government on a partisan vote in an act of ideological vengeance. If the Republican Senate confirms a Trump appointee to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat right before or after the election, progressives say Democrats, if they sweep in November, should retaliate by packing the high court.

The media love nothing better than to pounce on hypocrisy. Especially when it comes from the Republican side. Within moments after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, many journalists, not just commentators, were ripping Mitch McConnell and his colleagues for vowing to push through a Trump nominee as her replacement. I expect hypocrisy from politicians of all stripes, and I’m rarely disappointed. They are very practiced in the art of intellectually justifying whatever it is they want to do in the exercise of raw political power. And if the circumstances change, they just conjure up new talking points that may be totally at odds with what they did before.

California's Gavin Newsom Ban's
Gas-Powered Vehicles, Effective 2035

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.

Cindy McCain endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president Tuesday in a rebuke of President Donald Trump by the widow of the GOP's 2008 nominee. Trump has had a fraught relationship with members of John McCain's family since he disparaged the Arizona senator during his 2016 campaign. But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

During the hand-off before his show Monday night, Lemon debated fellow network host Chris Cuomo by arguing Democrats should push to eliminate the Electoral College, which would require a constitutional amendment. Lemon said such a feat was possible if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats "stack the courts."

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel.

As the Senate prepares for yet another brutal Supreme Court nomination fight, one particularly sensitive issue is creating apprehension among Democrats: what to do with 87-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate, is widely respected by senators in both parties, but she has noticeably slowed in recent years. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides show widespread concern over whether the California Democrat is capable of leading the aggressive effort Democrats need against whoever President Donald Trump picks to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
