This just can't be.. I'm almost starting to believe that pushing this old dinosaur up to the podium is by design because no one can possibly be stupid enough to believe Biden is presidential material.
Well, I must say it helps to compare him to the moronic crook in the White House. As I recall, however, the closing of ranks around Biden had a ton to do wih feeling Bernie was likely not to be electable. Maybe wrong, but that's the way nearly every Democrat I know sliced things. I honestly think Medicare for All is the best program for health care in America, but we saw America freak out over covering pre-existing conditions (because the costs became part of premiums with the ACA) so what are the chances the voters will sit down and analyze the alternatives carefully?

That's pretty much true, but last I checked you have to get elected before it's relevant. I like Bernie's anti-Establishment approach, and maybe it would have been more electable, rather than less, but I lived through the McGovern election and I have too many doubts.

55% of people polled believe that Biden has early stages of dementia

https://www.dailywire.com/news/poll-55- ... =dwtwitter


I'm not a doctor that has performed a mental health examination of Biden.

But I do think he is clearly becoming senile before the nation's eyes.

If he wins he will be a puppet for the Democratic Thug party

Post Re: 173 Declared Democratic Presidential Candidates
Since Trump's election, both the Repubs and Dems have been saying that the other party is breaking apart. I have to wonder now if the Democratic Party isn't actually doing that.

For the first couple years of Trump's term it seemed that the usual suspects were in control of the Dems--corrupt old backroom politicians like Schumer and Pelosi. But then after the 2018 mid-term election, a bunch of new congressional representatives began to grab the headlines. They're hardcore Marxists, and now their followers are vandalizing America. The Dems are going to have a hard time putting up a united front in the upcoming election. They have several catchy slogans they could use, but I don't think any of them would bring the voters out:

* Defund the Police!
* Burn it All Down!
* F*** America!
* Kill Whitey!

I just don't see any of those sentiments bringing moderate Democrats to the polls. And then there's the history of racism in the Democratic Party. The party will HAVE to deal with it now:

Black Democrat Says Party 'Associated with Racism, Bigotry and the Confederacy' Must Be Renamed
yourdestinationnow.com/2020/07/black-de ... iated.html

The Democratic Party is and always has been the party of slavery and racism. So how can it withstand the historical revisionism that the Marxists are now attempting to impose on America? Key to the revisionism is the issue of slavery, and the Democrats were the pro-slavery party. So I wouldn't be surprised if their own ranks force them to change the name, and I wouldn't be surprised if we get a Marxist party splintering off. That will mean we have the old Democratic Party of traditional racists, and the new party of violent racists.

Behold,

A NYT shill opining that Biden debate Trump CONTINGENT upon a few "conditions":



https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/07/opin ... ebate.html



Quote:
First, Biden should declare that he will take part in a debate only if Trump releases his tax returns for 2016 through 2018. Biden has already done so, and they are on his website. Trump must, too. No more gifting Trump something he can attack while hiding his own questionable finances.

And second, Biden should insist that a real-time fact-checking team approved by both candidates be hired by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates — and that 10 minutes before the scheduled conclusion of the debate this team report on any misleading statements, phony numbers or outright lies either candidate had uttered. That way no one in that massive television audience can go away easily misled.

I was dubious before opening this story, but I actually think the criteria make perfect sense. The justification for a debate is so that the public can see who they are getting. It is just a norm, just a common practice, not a law. So, if Trump wants to showcase his TV skills, the price of entry should be to show the public what they are getting. By releasing those returns.

The tradition is that a sitting president is the one who should be reluctant to debate. A sitting president should normally have the commanding position of being able to create policy actions that win over voters. Trump has not bothered. He doesn't get the notion of "winning over" anyone. He understands punishment of enemies and protection of those who do his dirty work, (but loyalty is something owed only to him, not by him) and has no concept of persuading people. Think about it. Can you think of a single time he has made a case to those on the fence? The closest was his admonition to African-American voters: "What have you got to lose?" Which is about as much an effort to persuade as his declaration of "love" to Melania: "You'll never get a better offer."

In this case Trump is so incompetent and so eager to throw people under the bus that he enters the campaign a lap behind. Why should Biden let him on the stage like a normal candidate, as if he is a viable president and a decent human being, when neither is even close?

The author pointed out that Trump promised he would release his tax returns, and then weaseled out. Why should he have the chance to make further lies, without real time fact-checking and with decent people assuming Biden bears the burden of refuting those lie-a-minute pellets? Let him keep his word on one of the promises he made, showing he is willing to live by the norms of transparency that our leaders have endorsed, and then let him on the stage.

Damn, Joe. A few seconds of archival footage--Joe Biden, friend of blacks everywhere:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWycBr4pi_0

The Democrats are going to have a "virtual" convention, more or less. Should have been 25,000 in attendance, but they'll allow 300. I hope Hillary Clinton takes advantage of the situation to steal the nomination. I want to see her work her magic one more time. It would be like a horror movie, at the end when you think the credits are about to roll, but the ax murderer comes lurching into the frame one more time. I want to hear them announce Clinton as the nominee. I want to see Trump empty a full load of electoral votes into her, to put her down for good, before the music rises.

But Clinton is unlikely to make a comeback, so we'll be stuck with Biden. The Dem's plan seems pretty clear, to run a dementia patient and then if he's elected remove him from office and elevate his running mate to the presidency. It's not the most solid of plans, so they're working on backup strategies.

The most likely backup we'll see is claiming that the election was stolen. They've been busy trying to set up mail-in voting for this purpose:

Dead Cat Gets Voter Registration Card In The Mail
dailycaller.com/2020/07/10/dead-cat-vot ... lot-fraud/

So election night should be interesting. The Dems are for the eternal lockdown of the country, for murder mayhem and looting, for canceling and/or killing those who stray from the Marxist BLM line, and, well, for Marxism. I don't see much that would appeal to the average voter there, but with a late surge of dead cat ballots the Dems will no doubt cry foul.

We could enter another Gore vs Bush count-off, but I think that's unlikely. The Dems want a totalitarian government and they want it now. Biden has floated the idea of using the military to forcibly remove Trump from office, so we might see an attempt at that.

Joe Biden says military would intervene if Trump refused to leave White House
nypost.com/2020/06/11/biden-says-milita ... -leave-wh/

The election will be contested by whichever side loses, and the Dems will probably try to get rid of the electoral college in the chaos. Without the college we would have mob rule by popular vote, and that's what the Dems want, mob rule. Look at how they've turned their cities over to mobs.

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw the White House torched on election night or shortly thereafter. The Marxist Black Lives Matter movement made a threatening show in Washington DC a while back, just outside the White House, so the Dems (or rather, their Chinese overlords) might order the place burned. The rioting outside may have been scripted foreshadowing.

Just over a hundred days to the election now. This will be one for the history books.

I was SO glad to see this:

Allen West elected chairman of Texas GOP, vows no more 'watered down conservatism'
washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jul/20/al ... vows-no-m/

Apparently the Democrats are going to try to steal what they can in Texas during the upcoming election. The only way the party of murder and mayhem can win nowadays is through fraud, and the leadership knows it, so in Texas they're shoving as many illegals from Mexico as they can across border. They're also pushing for the abolishment of photo ID requirements we have for voting, and they want mail-in voting. Allen West has been preparing for the job of being the head of the Republican Party in TX for a while, and he'll fight the lawlessness of the Marxists.

In other election news, serial liar Joe Biden is being haunted by his old fabrications. Here's one that is just mind bending. From 1988:

Joe Biden lies about college law school degrees, scholarship and graduating at the top of his class
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SjrpfCp30k

After GOP Wins Landslide Special Election – New York Democrat Says He Refuses To Concede, Wants Absentees Counted
To the shock of many NY Democrats, a Republican won a congressional seat by a large margin. Chris Jacobs beat Nate McMurray for the NY-27 congressional special election by 69%-30%. ... That huge difference was enough for Jacobs to declare victory. ... According to Jacobs, it would be “mathematically impossible” for the results of the election to change with absentee ballots. Yet the Democrat is refusing to concede, despite suffering a monumental loss. ... Some suggest this is an omen of things to come. Democrats might refuse to concede in November, without a recount or use of mail-in ballots—even ballots that come in past the deadline.

Trump tried to get the debates moved forward but that wasn't allowed. As a result, 35 million will cast their mail-in votes before the first debate reveals what a drooling idiot Biden is. If they even have debates now. I expect they'll use the Wuhan virus to delay or cancel them.

And there's still a chance that they'll steal the nomination from Biden. He may be the face of the Democratic Party, but Bernie Sanders is the heart, so the Sandersnistas are going to make a power play. They could put one of their people in the VP slot and wait for her to assume power, but still...HRC is sharking around in the water. She could leap up and snatch the nomination. And then there are the Obamas. Could Bathhouse Barry be the VP pick? Everybody would pretend like it's no big deal, but we all KNOW that the VP will take over from Gibbering Joe almost immediately. That would mean three terms for Obama, but you'd be a racist if you object. And now he has the civilian army he talked about ten years ago. Mess with him and Antifa/BLM will burn you out.

If Biden is elected, they will use him to implement the most unpopular diktats in American history. All presidents have their "first hundred days" period, and that's when they make the big changes. No doubt the Sandersnistas already have their Marxist Executive Orders drafted. We could actually see things like the abolition of private property, and the means of production being nationalized. And those things would be attributed to Biden, so that his replacement could disavow.

Meanwhile, Trump said he may be gone pretty soon. Esoteric statement, but it sounded as if he meant gone from life. He's taken on Big Pharma lately, and they'll kill him. He's signing orders to return drug manufacturing to America, and that could be his death sentence. We shall see. He may not even make it to the election. I guess Pence would stand in, since his name would already be on the ballots. But the other day I heard Pence say that Biden, "wants to put us on the road to socialism." Give me a break. We've been socialist since FDR. And as of right now we're looking at the U.S. being merged with Marxist/Maoist China. The Dems almost have us to that point. Just a few more riots around election time, a call to the U.N. for help, and we could wake up to ChiCom troops in California.

Kamala Harris chosen for VP candidate. I salute the choice. She is a skillful politician with a sharp policy mind. She is ready to be President if necessary (and not just by the incredibly low standards set by the current occupant of the White House.)

I would have liked to have Liz Warren, but as my wife observes, she is almost as old as Biden and may not be able to run in 2024. So Joe Biden has also opted for a continuation of the generational change we saw with Obama.

I think there are some very skillful strategists running Biden's campaign, and (despite what you may read here) Biden has an excellent mind as well, and great political instincts. Yes, he is prone to gaffes, but he won't be suggesting drinking disinfectant any time soon. I will be surprised if he doesn't carry more electoral college votes than Trump did in 2016.

If anarchists are well represented in the ranks of violent protesters, I don't think we have worry about them voting democratic.

It's interesting to think about what being a Democrat, or Republican, is. When I voted for Republicans, I wasn't a Republican. Matter of fact, I didn't identify as a Democrat even though I tended to vote for D candidates. The notion of party loyalty hasn't caught on with me.

When Trump won the presidency the Dem voters slogan was "Not My President"
Anarchy didn't have to be rampant on the streets.


I would wager a modest amount that if Trump wins the Dems will not accept the results.


We are in for a wild ride.

Quick question for you:

Does Joe Biden know yet that Harris is his running mate?
