When will 'Basement Biden'
get in the game?

Less than six weeks before the election, one of the most profound disappointments among some of Joe Biden’s supporters is that he doesn’t even seem to be trying. If some Democrats are correct, crushing “The Donald” should have been easy. After all (according to them), President Trump is an impeached, sex-offending, tax-evading, white supremacist, coronavirus-mismanaging, sexist, racist, Islamophobic, homophobic, misogynistic, sexist liar who is wildly unpopular. And Biden has long showed a hefty advantage in the polls. If all of that’s true, then Biden need do little more than show up, and winning should be a piece of cake

Comments:

Some time in October the pollsters will fear looking like fools again and show that Old Joe's lead was a house of cards. Then it will be too late for campaigning.

First someone must inform him there’s a game. Second someone must tell him what the game is. Third he must be given a whiff of shampoo. Fourth repeat.

One theorizes, Biden will show better than expected at the debate. I am curious how Kamala is going to do with the Senate hearings on S.C.J hearings- please let her speak on record regarding Amy Comey Barrett.. If I see Hand Maiden Pics on Instagram from major influencers- I may unfollow. Tired of 2020

I am working on a theory about Joe's lack of campaigning. Joe is throwing the election to Trump. I don't think Joe's dementia is as bad as he lets on. Joe may resent everybody making decisions for him. If even one debate happens, it will become obvious

Modern drugs can do wonders so don't be too shocked if Joe is coherent for about 10 or even 15 minutes, but there is NO way on earth he can keep on point for 90 minutes. EVERY answer will be memorized or fed to him. The quicksand for him would be if he actually tries to answer a question that is off script, or if he loses his temper, which is a very high percentage event.

I am wondering if it is Hiden' Biden appearing at all. His forays out of his basement are so far apart, so pre-arranged and scripted, no questions allowed, no up-close talking to reporters...... Is it really Biden, or is it a next-generation Boston Dynamics/Disney animatron? Just wondering. Also, assuming that it IS really Biden, how would he (if he can) truthfully answer the question famously posed to President Reagan regarding his age and stamina?

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a narrow lead over President Trump, according to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, released exclusively to The Hill one day before the first presidential debate. Forty-seven percent of likely voters said they would vote for Biden if the election were held today, while 45 percent said they would back Trump. The survey marks a 3-point improvement for Trump and a 2-point decline for Biden from the last poll that was conducted in August. Biden also led with likely voters who said they were unsure of who they were going to vote for, with 52

On Tuesday — National Voter Registration Day — the Auraria campus in downtown Denver was practically barren, so uninhabited that a shout of “Are you registered to vote?” easily cleared the plexiglass shield in front of New Era Colorado’s tent and echoed down the walkways. Gone were pre-pandemic features like circus performers and walls lined with fresh goodies for the taking, temptations that in years past lured hordes of college students headed to class to the youth civic engagement group’s voter-registration booths. Instead, a select few New Era employees — all masked — hit the university pavement to help young

NEW YORK — Coronavirus continues to spread “at an alarming rate” in several New York City neighborhoods, the city health department said Sunday, a day before it is expected to decide whether to shut down private schools and nonessential businesses there. The COVID infection rate in Gravesend/Homecrest is 6.75%, up from 6% last week; 5.34% in Midwood, up from 4.95%; and 4.41% in Borough Park, up from 3.53%, according to the Health Department. It also flagged Kew Gardens, Edgemere/Far Rockaway, Bensonhurst/Mapleton, Gerritsen Beach/Homecrest/Sheepshead Bay and Flatlands/Midwood as areas of concern. “Seven of the eight neighborhoods saw increases even from the

Jordan Williams, 18, recently posted a video on TikTok encouraging fellow Gen Zers to get matching tattoos as a sign of rebellion. She stumbled across the symbol, a letter Z with a line through the center, in the comment section of another user's video. She thought the image seemed simple enough and universal enough to be a good fit, so she issued a call to action to her 2,000 followers. "OK Gen Z listen up!" Williams captioned a video of herself staring into the camera wearing a black hoodie. "What if, now hear me out...We all got a matching tattoo.

On Sept. 21, Steve Guest, rapid response director for the Republic National Committee, posted on Twitter an eight-second Trump campaign clip of a speech by Joe Biden with the comment, "Joe Biden completely botches the Pledge of Allegiance." The clip was viewed more than 1.5 million times and generated comments regarding Biden's mental state. Some who shared the quick clip claimed Biden made a gaffe, or "botched" the pledge, including Dinesh D'Souza, The Federalist, PJ Media and Fox News' Sean Hannity. Other posts took a more hesitant approach with the claim, saying it "appears" Biden may have goofed. It was

As Democratic senators begin mapping out how they will wield their limited procedural weapons in the fight over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, they are grappling with a central question: How much legitimacy do they give his candidate? With little power to actually derail Trump’s pick, Democrats are coming under considerable pressure from their activist base to use every tactic at their disposal to not just throw sand in the gears of the confirmation fight, but to portray the consideration of expected nominee Amy Coney Barrett as a farce that shouldn’t even occur. In a sense, they are playing the
When Biden calls a 'lid,' Democrats wet

If calling a “lid" enters the mainstream American lexicon, this will be the week it all started. Joe Biden called a lid — the arcane term reporters use when a politician is done traveling for the day — at 1:02 p.m. Friday; 9:20 a.m. Thursday; 9:22 a.m. Tuesday and 8:34 a.m. Saturday. Biden’s early turn-ins provoked the Twitter set, professionally nervous Democrats (OK, bedwetters) and, notably, Donald Trump to scratch their heads or rain down ridicule. “Did you see he did a ‘lid’ this morning again?” Trump asked Thursday evening in Jacksonville, Fla., pausing to offer a definition for the

New York's attorney general on Friday recommended the New York Police Department get out of the business of routine traffic enforcement, a radical change she said would prevent encounters like one last year in the Bronx that escalated quickly and ended with an officer fatally shooting a motorist. Attorney General Letitia James, who acts as a special prosecutor appointed to investigate certain police killings, argued that traffic stops for minor infractions often end in violence and that Allan Feliz's death last October after he was pulled over for a seat belt violation “further underscores the need for this change.” James’

WASHINGTON — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol Friday. She may also be the only person to lie in state who has had a mourner do calisthenics in front of their casket. Bryant Johnson, Ginsburg's longtime trainer, dropped and gave the Justice a quick trio of push-ups when it was his turn to approach the flag-draped coffin shortly after 10:30 a.m. ABC7 spoke with Johnson last year about his relationship with Justice Ginsburg, who he trained for more than 20 years.

WILMINGTON, Del. — The final stretch of a presidential campaign is typically a nonstop mix of travel, caffeine and adrenaline. But as the worst pandemic in a century bears down on the United States, Joe Biden is taking a lower key approach. Since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Biden has had 22 days where he either didn’t make public appearances, held only virtual fundraisers or ventured from his Delaware home solely for church, according to an Associated Press analysis of his schedules. He made 12 visits outside of Delaware during that period

Who cares about Trump’s tax returns? 34 replies
Posted by StormCnter 9/28/2020 11:39:42 AM Post Reply
Is anyone really surprised that Donald Trump’s tax affairs are opaque? Or that he is not as rich as he claims? Is it really all that horrifying that he has for years claimed business losses in order to offset his significant income tax liability? Does it appall us that the Trump family used a Delaware-based consulting group to pay themselves? Of course not. The New York Times’s big Trump tax files splash on Sunday is therefore something of a flop. It is well-timed — an election is fast-approaching and the story might give Biden a good attack line in the big TV debate on Tuesday night.

The study for Tatler magazine also showed that the majority of participants believe Meghan Markle, who is an American citizen, should not be commenting on US politics. The poll, which was gathered last month by research consultancy Savanta Comres, polled 4,174 British adults and only included results from those who expressed an opinion when questioned.

After telling us how privacy-obsessed they were, with Harry weeping sob stories about his mom and the papparazzi, and even suing some media companies for their intrusions, as well as leaving their high-vis rented mansion in the Hollywood Hills for more sedate (but pricier) Montecito, they've now decided to go full frontal, back for the cameras, making themselves the stars of some reality TV. No kidding, it's a project with Netflix cameras following them around. Seems they like themselves those cameras. According to the Daily Mail:

The release of a joint report by the Senate committees on homeland security and finance raised important questions about obviously unethical foreign profiteering by members of the Biden family. In particular, former Vice President Joe Biden’s ne’er-do-well son Hunter received a remarkable amount of money from highly suspect foreign entities, including ones controlled by the Chinese government. On at least one occasion, the elder Biden appears to have directly facilitated his son’s tawdry dealings. On another, the current Democratic presidential nominee ignored an obvious appearance of a conflict of interest that compromised the moral authority of U.S. diplomacy.

The New York Times is undoubtedly pleased that it published more than two decades’ worth of Donald Trump’s tax returns. The self-congratulations are premature. The Times’ article reveals that Trump was telling the truth all along about his audit. We can also see that Obama’s policies benefitted rich people. Finally, because the policies show how our complicated progressive tax system will always benefit rich people with good accountants, the Times unwittingly advanced the argument for a flat tax.

Rejecting concerns from doctors and parents, Gov.

Newsom praised the new law for “strengthening protections for LGBTQ+ Californians” and providing an “additional step forward” in “our march towards equality,” in an announcement over the weekend. “Governor Newsom is ignoring the heartbreak his policies will unleash,” said Jonathan Keller, President of California Family Council. “AB 2218 opens the door to drugs and surgeries causing irreversible damage, risking life-long sterility for young people.”

Wrapped in glinting white plastic, the bales are stacked atop a rolling mountain hillside along Route 211, relaying their message to any nearby resident who drives to the closest grocery store. “Farmers for Trump 2020,” the bales say, hand-painted with red and blue capital letters. “Keep America Great.”

Johnny Rotten aka John Lydon has been open about his support for Trump and Brexit for some time now—but fans of the Sex Pistols and the former punk legend are still disappointed. Lydon, 64, has long been associated with anarchist views and he's managed to get people talking again. A tweet showing the "God Save the Queen" singer wearing a pro-Donald Trump 'Make America Great Again' T-shirt has gone viral on Twitter this week, with one former fan decrying his idol's political views.
